H70 in 600T

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey, really don't know anything about watercooling. I am looking at getting the H70 in a Corsair 600T case. I've read that some motherboard chipset heatsinks are too big, will it fit with an ASUS P8P67 PRO?
Thanks!

It should fit just fine, and remember to always run radiator fans as intake, no matter where they're mounted

Good to see another Aussie too!

And I am jealous of your case. I want one...

Thanks I better get to YouTube and look at some guides then hah, really got no idea Yeah I fell in love with the 600T, wanting to go the watercooling route as I've heard the airflow is subpar, oh well. Is there much maintenance involved in watercooling as opposed to air, any risks etc?

I've never done it myself, but I guess accidents can happen. Humans aren't perfect... I've heard stories of people forgetting to use clamps and forgetting o-rings and then having tubes fly off and leaky blocks

But suffice to say, if it's all done properly the only thing you need to worry about is evaporation and what kind of water you'll run in the loop. Ideal is distilled water and a silver kill coil, or so I've read. EK Nickel blocks don't seem to like that though...

Regarding the H70 though, that's all I need to buy for CPU cooling right? Also, it says it's "maintenance free", meaning I don't have to worry about distilled water etc? Those horror stories are about custom water cooling systems yeah? Thanks for the input, being a newbie I don't want to overlook something stupid V_V

It's a closed unit. It won't leak or evaporate, unless the tubes or radiator are punctured.

Awesome, thanks a lot for your help

Don't forget, both are produced by Corsair so they're "destined" or bound to work together, so let that be a rule of thumb Even the upcoming dual-radiator H100 will fit the Corsair 600t.

True Really, I would spend the extra $20 for the H100 if it's worth it?

Check out the link in my sig, and it will make you wanna go for a custom loop. But, for the price, the H-80/H-100 are a good choice. But for pure performance/fun, custom loop FTW.
