Hey all! New here...

I had read a few places that some fans might not be compatible with the H100i.. Im looking to set up a push/pull config of these to get a little bit lower temp. Is this worth doing?

What fans do you recommend to get with these.. What fans for Pull would work nicely with the Stock Fans that come with the H100i?

Is it worth getting 4 custom fans and ditching the stock fans? if so what do you recommend?

I wanted to get the Scythe Slim line fans for my pull so my fans + rad isnt 3in tall..

All comments and recommendations are welcome!

Thanks,
Ryan

The H100i has a high FPI radiator... so a fan like the Scythe Slim (as far as my knowledge of such fans go) that has no static pressure would definitely do you no good. Anything with some good static preasure would be good. I personally would just pick a good set of 120 silent fans... maybe http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181025 but there are plenty of other good fans out there. On my H100 i just use two regular Corsair 140 fans and my temps are well below the danger zone even with an oc of 4.5Ghz (i7 3770k). Better opinions will probably come in your direction but here are my two cents.
