Really nice! Was it a perfect fit or you had to use the mesh holes for the screws as I had to with my H100i?
post #2112 of 2348
I had to use the mesh holes, and i had to remove the rear fan, and move it to the outside of the case (pity), becasue the Vengeance RAM's are too high... not enough space.... but yours is good... your rams are normal sizes right?
post #2113 of 2348
Fixed. Rear fan is in the right place now wink.gif

Nice job and Much better looking. My memory it's the G.Skill Sniper series 1866mhz not exactly regular size so I did what you just did, push it forward a bit, it doesn't lay flat on the top but its working perfectly. thumb.gif

Thanks! smile.gif Who cares if doesn't lay perfectly. Im happy with the result., just like you. smile.gif

Hi, would like to try this external radiator solution, what did you use to drill the holes for the tubes to enter the case?

thanks

I can't remember seeing someone do it recently, but I think Naszi did it some time ago. You could try PMíng him about it (he's no longer in this club).

Hello,

Just picked up this case. After bringing my first pick back to the Tiger Direct store after the guy swore to me the h100i would fit it (it didn't) I then exchanged for this case, which I actually like a lot better.

Although I promised myself not to listen to the big brick n mortar computer store's advice again, I repeated my folly and ended up with a case that also doesn't fit the h100i....kinda....I see some of you got it in there, and I'm going to try to get mine in too. The store is about an hour away from me and I like this case too much to bring another one back anyway....

I understand I am to use the hex holes to just throw some screws in there, my questions are:

Do we have all the screws in the radiator, or did we leave a few missing?

Did you find a way to mount it that no drilling was required? Or did you need to drill a few holes (such as towards the front of the case on the end 2 screw holes) to get it mounted up?

Is there an advantage/disadvantage you found mounting it so the hoses were on the back or front side?

If you could go back and get a full exchange for the h100i (I can..) would you say this is worth it, or just trade it for something that would mount up to the rear fan spot?

Is there a difference in installation, does one mount easier than the other between the h110 and the h100i? Do any coolers mount up directly, such as cooler master's version of the all-in-one water cooler?

I can get full money back for the h100i, and I'm running a 6350 and planning to overclock. If you were in my shoes, in general what would you do here with this case? Mount the h100i? Use a DH14 instead? H80? etc...

Thanks in advance, I'll try to get some pics in of my rig and fill out the form to join this fine club of gentlemen soon.

Meh...I went ahead and dove in.

To answer some of my own questions, in case someone else has them...

I used a total of 5 screws. 4 of them were in the middle (where there are two sets of two) and one of them was the corner towards the rear of the case on the motherboard side. I was amazed that with only these screws, the radiator is on there. I mean it's not moving. At all. So forget the need to use them all.

As shown in one of the pics, I used the hex holes without a problem.

I found that running the hoses towards the front of the case was a lot easier than trying to get them to play nice with the rear fan.

I am amazed, even astounded, at the difference this cooler offers over my Arctic 64 freezer pro, I know it's a legacy cooler I've been stuck with for a while but my god, this thing is amazing. I have absolutely zero desire to take this cooler out of the case.

I want to remove the USB cable, do I need to have it hooked up, I couldn't find a solid answer. I know I need it to use corsair link but I'd rather not have the cable running down the board.

I also don't want to use the fan header coming out of the pump (the one that is right next to the sata power) if my fans are plugged directly the the mobo, can I unplug this fan cable? (there is only one wire going to it, but I don't want it to be something like remote turn-on for the pump and end up overheating my stuff from stupidity lol)

Here's the pics, if anyone's not sure about fitting one of these in, coming from someone who was not looking forward to drilling into my new case just yet, and wanted it to look professional and all that...yeah, do it, simple stuff.

Welcome to the Club!

I installed it exactly as you did, 5 screws, hoses facing front because of the exhaust fan, and its holding pretty tight.

No need to use the USB connector unless you want to use the corsair monitoring software, I did not connect the fans to the pump either because it didn't look good with all those cables running around and the fans I'm using are the cooler master Jetflo and this fans will damage the pump because of they are more powerful,you'll want to use the fan header for a few days to monitor the pump RPMs and see if it running ok, them removed it as I did.

Moving back to the case, if you're not going to use it you can remove the top harddrive case to improve air flow from the front fan. thumb.gif
