If you have a pc tower case and it’s water cooled can the case be tilted on its side in order to access your hard drives or ram sticks by taking off the side panel of the pc case?

 

Is it the same for all pc tower cases that are water cooled that you can tilt them?

Yes and yes. I've tilted mine plenty of times that had an AIO. As long as you dont run a pump dry (assuming its a custom loop) then you'll always be good.

As long as your fittings are properly tightened if its a custom loop. Just do it gently, since water is heavy. Also make sure your reservoir is properly closed. If it's an all in one cooler than don't worry about it.

Oh man, I forgot to put the cap on my reservoir a few times already.. Good thing it's not above any critical components because I would be straight fucked.. I've tilted it and blew in the lines with no cap on it haha..
