    Just wondering, will a BIX work o.k with the barbs at the bottm? My rig will be neatened further if the tubes ar routed from the base of the rad :D

    I think it should but I was wondering if this might lead to air being trapped in the cross chamber :idea: Suppose I could always purge it outside the case then bolt it in when it's air-free :)

    anyone got thier BIX (or similar) with the barbs at the bottom?

    i thought having them at the bottom was the right way up :eyebrow: mine are on the side and it works fine. what pump? i think it would work fine any way up with a fast pump like the ehiem 1250 but a slower one might cause probs.

    Yeh, reason I posted was due to the different pics I've seen of the BIX - roughly 1/2 and 1/2 barbs up/down. I think I'll try both ways and see what happens:)

    Yeah Coolrunnin i was think about that when i was setting up my rig. I would say if you properly bleed the system of air then you should be ok. Or.. making the water go up the rad, causing the pump to create lots of backpressure...so much so that the rad explodes and water drains into your HD's. Who knows? :D :D

    I was hoping that the rad would explode all over my M/B, G/c and possibly my LCD as well just to make sure that my rig's completely ****ed rather than some c****y repairable damage :D Maybe a bit of dry run eheim melting over my hand as well when try to fix it :rolleyes: :lol:
