    Best orientation Waterblock CPU

    Hello

    With a waterblock Ek Supremacy and 4930K, which is the best orientation?
    I saw that it was with the IN/OUT at the top and bottom of the topics on this forum (A left and right, it is less efficient), but I have not had confirmation.

    Thanks so much for your help
    Sorry for my english

    I'm using a RayStorm HP CPU block, I tried vertical and horizontal... this gave best performance.
    Intel Core i7 5960X Haswell-E, Gigabyte LGA 2011-V3 GA-X99-SOC Champion, G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 16GB, PowerColor R9 280x TriFire, Radeon 240GB SSD, Intel 180GB SSD, LG Blu-ray Burner, Win 7 Ult. 64bit, 28" I-Inc 1920x1200, Logitech G105, EVGA 1300watt PSU, CaseLabs ST10

    Yes for supremacy ports stacked on top and bottom is best (90 degree rotation from what you would expect). This is data on the 3930K but should be same result for 4930K:

    Thanks for your response.

    The best orientation is at 90 ? (unlike the picture of techjesse, so)
    I'll test

    Yeah it's really the orientation of the inner fin structure rather the ports and not every design as the ports the same orientation compared to the fin structure which is why some are better than others when rotated. E.G. Bitspower and Phobya blocks get worse. Some are more sensitive than others to rotation also.

    I'll test

    Thank you for your help

    PS: the IN can be up or down, does not matter?
