    Guessing that's meant to be 'There are no dedicated mounting points for pumps or reservoirs, which is a shame,'

    Or are you so eager to mod it you're disappointed that BeQuiet have done it for you.

    *dons columbo style jacket* One more thing...


    Did you/can you test it in it's inverted layout [and or with the GPU on that 90-degree bracket], just curious if it actually makes any difference...

    Don't have the right-angled bracket to test with. I shall do an inverted test tomorrow, if there's time. Are you interested in maybe buying it? I'll try either way, but I'm more likely to find the time if I know your money may be on the line!

    More to satisfy my curiosity than anything else, if time doesn't allow then fair enough.

    Plus BeQuiet make a point of making a case that lets you do funky things with the layout... only for precisely none of the reviews [that I've seen] to test any of said configurations, bar the 'normal' one. Not having a pop at you/bit-tech, just annoyed that no-one has given any of the alternate configs a go for whatever reason.

    Did it yesterday :)

    At full performance, full speed, CPU went to 47 delta. GPU at 49 delta though, so that's the trade-off. Airflow is more direct for CPU, but less reaches GPU, so makes sense.

    Will update article when I get a moment.
