Brutus Build Valve orientation question

So I am now doing the final assembly of my Brutus clone and I wanted to know if any one has an opinion or recommendation for valve orientation. I see that most build have the vales right after their pots/keggles and then the tee with the thermowells and disconnects. I was thinking of putting the valve pointing downward after the tee. I have attached a link to a picture to show the different. Any suggestion with which way is better or problems with the orientation? Valve down on the right, valve after pot of the left.

I would think it depends on your rig. You can do a run with water, hot or not and see how ergonomic it is to change out. Try it with hot water to see if it is comfortable handling the disconnects etc.

Most have them straight out but the tee down could work too.
