Installation options Eisbaer Extreme


New member
The informational video details the radiator can be installed at the top and front area of a case.

For the front mount, the presenter shows the reservoir/cabling on the upside as an option. However, the Eisbaer Extreme manual says it must be the other way around, i.e. the reservoir and cabling are on the bottom "in order not to damage the pump". Can someone please confirm if this is really necessary?

Follow up question: With the reservoir at the bottom of a front panel mount, is the tubing long enough to comfortably reach the CPU on a typical ATX board in a Midi Tower? I couldn't find a single video or review properly showing a front mount.
