Default front or rear radiator cooling best?

Great review...thanks!

I have a quick question...is front or rear radiator cooling best? I am presuming the front fans are intakes, rear and top are out.

My thinking is rear takes heat straight out the back from CPU, where as front means air is drawn in, cooled and then blow back through case. Surely venting the heat straight away is better?

I am thinking of the Coolermaster Seidion 120 and 240 models.

Cheers

Hooner,
In most cases, the hoses are not long enough to install the radiator in the front of the case. The best option is to install it in the rear or top panel.
