Can a radiator be too heavy for wall?
The heavier the radiator – cast-iron-style for example – the stronger and more structurally sound the wall will need to be. In fact, you shouldn’t hang a radiator on any wall that requires plastering BEFORE it has been plastered.
Which way up do radiator brackets go?
Examine your brackets The two brackets are the same, there is not a left and right. However, each has a large side and a small side. You should hang the radiator from the large side as this holds the radiator further out from the wall giving you better air current and heat flow.
Should fans be on inside or outside of radiator?
Usually radiator goes first and then you attach fan (in correct orientation to support desired airflow). If you’re mounting radiator on the back of your case, then airflow has to be directed as exhaust.
Should AIO tubes be on top or bottom?
The side of the radiator where the tubes are connected should not be at the top of the loop. When air is collected at the top, having the radiator mounted with the tubes down means air is not sucked into the tubes and the pump.
Should you mount AIO top or front?
A top mounted AIO will recycle the hotter air from inside your case and will result in higher CPU temperatures. With a top mounted radiator, you will want to have good fans at the front of the case to supply the components with cool air and to keep decent airflow.
Should my radiator fans be intake or exhaust?
Generally, you want the case fans in front of the case drawing in air while the fans at the rear blow air out. If your case has vents at the top, they should be placed as exhaust fans because hot air will rise. Side-mounted fans should be used for intake, though they often don’t have air filters.
How do you mount AiO on top of a case?
One good mounting position is to mount the radiator of the cooler at the frontal area of the case interior. The side of the radiator where the tubes connect should be at the bottom, and the pump should be mounted in a position where it is slightly lower than the top of the radiator, where air is captured.

What is the Ek loop angled bracket 120mm?
The EK Loop Angled Bracket 120mm is a steel mounting bracket that enables the user to mount the FLT style combo units or reservoirs perpendicular to any 120mm (105mm hole spacing) fan mounting holes. This will allow more airflow to freely pass through the case, or just…
How thick should a push/pull radiator be?
However remember that we said that ANY radiator in push/pull beats out a push setup. The thinnest radiator that we tested was 30mm thick. Adding on 50mm of fans means that’s a total of 80mm. This means that it is acceptable to run one set of fans IF you have less clearance than 80mm.
How thick is the thinnest radiator?
The thinnest radiator that we tested was 30mm thick. Adding on 50mm of fans means that’s a total of 80mm. This means that it is acceptable to run one set of fans IF you have less clearance than 80mm. But of course if you have less clearance than 80mm then the thickest radiator you can ever consider is 80mm-25mm = 55mm.
