I am looking for some thoughts on the ideal placement of my reservoir. I have the Swiftech micro and can place it in a few different spots.
1- In the upper middle part of case right below and to the right of the power supply
2- in middle right of case, more right then the above but lower, in middle height of case
3- lower at the 3 1/2 floppy bay, and even more to the right and lower then the other two.

Or does placement not really matter that much and should I select for a better placement of the tubing?
People have stated to put it at the highest point in the setup, but as I've seen pics, that usually is not the norm.

Thoughts would be great.

Thanks

doesn't have to necessarily be the "highest point in the setup" but definitely above your pump.

It doesn't really matter... I still say that you should place it at the highest point you can...


However, to make bleeding easier... Add the water first, and allow just enough room for your coolant additive... Get yourself 95% full of water, and then add antifreeze.

Most coolants foam and make bleeding a bitch.
