Default A few intro questions about Liquid cooling.

So i've been trying to figure out what kind of cooling i wanted and what would be right for my use.

I figured i would go with

NCIX.com - Buy Swiftech H20-220 Apex Ultra Universal CPU Liquid Cooling Kit - H20-220-APEX-Ultra In Canada.

I've been trying to figure out if this is compatible with an AM2+ board.

According to the PDF manual i need to contact the company and get them to send an AM2 plate free of charge.

I have also read that the plate is fairly universal and will work on an AM2 board.

Can anyone support or deny these claims?

I've been to the website and i can't find any contact information except for the webmasters email.

Thanks

That's all for now.

Thanks alot HEF as usual.

My follow up question is as follows.

I was going with the HAF932 case and i was wondering if anyone has had any experience removing the 240MM fan on the top and mounting the Triple rad there. I was planning on ordering a kit with a rad box.

My options are i could mount a triple rad on the top of the case or a double rad on the side door. What traditionally is the best place for the rad? I heard the rad should be above the pump, or is it vice versa?

I have not mounted a triple rad up top of a haf but many people have.

Here is a good work log of one project:
[Project] CM HAF 932, Water-cooled, and Painted Black *PICS*56k Warning* - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

You can google "haf water cooled" and get a ton of good work logs to look at.
