aNTEC P182 + H20-220 APEX ULTRA

Post by fotis1972 » Thu Jun 28, 2007 3:21 am

I would like to ask something: in p182 the holes is at the bottom side of the case, if i put the radiator upside down would be a problem?? otherwise i must do a long loop to pass through the tubes inside the case??
or any suggestion how i have to put the tubes??
i don't want to make new holes in the back of the case

thanks a lot

Upside down wouldn't be a problem, but let all the air bubbles escape from the radiator during the fill session first before bolting the radiator onto the case in that position.

Or drill a bleed hole in the upper end tank. Plug it with a brass screw and rubber washer, and you'll be good.

Why don't Antec and other case manufacturers put stock holes above the 120mm exhaust? Do they think more people would be using external kits like a reserator instead of using a radbox? :|
