nova 1080 60mm new build query

Hi, I have a nova 1080 60mm wide radiator that was previously mounted externally in an upright position, I have decided to paint it and fit it laying flat in the roof of my next build, I had intended to fit it upright inside the case front but the supporting bars that hold up the motherboard tray are robbing a bit of room so making it impossible without drastic chopping up of my new case


my question is this, will it be ok to run like that, or will it have a negative effect on its performance in regard to how the coolant is likely to flow? as  the end tanks are quite shallow  and  am concerned this may constrain the flow to favour the pipes which are closes to the inlet and exit ports if run on its side, one last thing does anyone know how many 'passes' this radiator actually does?



thanks in advance for  any light shone on this for me  :)

Shouldn't make too much of a difference how it is orientated. 


Just try and keep your loop as short as possible. 


No clue at all on passes or how this beast works, as it is essentially 3 360s bolted together....
