Mounting a hybrid radiator in the Node results in the case not being able to close properly. If you inverse the mounting bracket you can rotate the fan 90º, and the case closes properly.

This means the hoses are then either above or below the radiator rather than on the side. Is this a bad idea?

Placing the radiator so that the hoses stay on top would be the best option imo.

That's what I went with. Having the hoses on the bottom cramps them up against the side of the GPU too much. Just want to make sure there isn't any issue with trapped air at the wrong point/pressure on the pump/etc.

That's a good plan. We'd love to see pictures of your setup!
