I do not have screenshots, but I did little testing with prime 95 before and after.
These were an hour test on loads...

These were stock clocks in a pretty cool ambient room where I did installation...
Ambients were 68 or ~22C...
Stock idle: 54C Stock load: 71C
H100 idle: 28C H100 load: 39C

Now in a small room, where temps reach 85F easily ~30C...
I overclocked my processor to 4ghz and 1.240V
idle: 35C load: 75C

Note I played games for about 2 hours last night (Crysis 2 and Batman: AA) and temps did not go above 56C... So I am happy with these settings so far... even though my CPU was not even close to being stressed...

Note the stock fan was set to performance mode, and the H100 always had the fans on low speed(on high it's like a leaf blower)... I'll be glad to post more results with screenshots if requested... I am just in a pretty high ambient little room now though...

here is what you need, you must measure right and cut once smile.gif
if you have the DVD on top on your case low down one bay and if need remove the top fan in the back of you case and measure. you just need to some time , lay off your pc for 2 days and do the work.
PS: don't do like my friend of mine, he did the some cu out and drilled some holes with everything inside so you have idea what happen next after he Powered he RIG. kaboom:eek:

Right on point here... Keep in mind the ground wire (top right) is originally tucked under and I almost forgot about this putting everything back together...
So when putting the radiator back on, i found this to be the best place to mount at the time...
And like you mentioned, I will stress the right screw holes (drilled or not) are going to be HIGH RISE meaning you will bend the case if you screw too tight...
Note these are for all the front panel lights/controls (correct me if I am wrong)

I might end up going for the same setup but cannot verify that the 200mm fan will get in the way... Maybe I got lucky but I wouldn't want any rattling or the screws pushing up the fan at all...

like i said if you get a standoff images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSod-r38MFmeP7gMtCkHVAC79OQPWHQC0ddn7efz1Wk2oSAUDxk7w and attach on the rad its going to help to keep the rad in level and prevent for bending the case smile.gif

It was a lot of work indeed...drilling holes in fans, using cable ties...next time I am going to buy me a case that is easier..don't know if it realy is a problem that the fans are not totally alligned, but ok that's just how it is..
I am slightly impressed by the H100, but also a bit dissapointed..I am still touching 55-56 Degr.C on my 1090T @4.2 when Prime95 or LinX is working, but Ok, that's the max of the CPU, so it's not going over the temps like 60 Degr.C
It's far better then the push-pull Scythe Mugen 2 that I had

As someone mentioned his pc went kaboom cuz of drilling in the case to mount the H100? I think i know why.. he's drilling metal and little pieces of shard of the case must have fell onto the motherboard when you should be taking the mobo out before drilling something so metal dust doesn't fly around anywhere and clean your mess up before putting the mobo?

Man i'm getting a little so disappointed i cannot mount this on the 1200! Which is why i haven't ordered the H100 yet. Glad i found info from you guys about mounting it on the case. Sure the only way is to do it on the front but it just gonna restrict airflow in the case itself. That suck balls man!

Sure you found alternatives but i don't own a drill and scared i'm gonna screw up my case resulting a problem like some others. The only resort i can think is setting it intake in front of the case. But i'd like it on top to especially the rear but i wish we can de-attach the tubes and put them back on! Whilst still sealed but no. Corsair you made me sad frown.gif I wanted this but now it looks like i really have to consider a new case and hate to waste money for that!
