Corsair H80 or H100?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if it would be better to mount the radiator from the H80 on the back of my case, or mount the H100 radiator on the top of my case. I can fit either of them. The top of my case has 2x230mm fans exhausting air, so the H100 radiator would have the case fans pulling, then the corsair fans pushing. Would this be a good idea?

Well the h100 is better than the h80, so I would say yes. About the fan direction though, you should have both the push, and pull fans going the same way, either exhaust, or intake. Not one intake, and one set exhaust.

Are you sure you can mount the H100 radiator under the 230mm fans?

I would personally get the H100. I got one to replace my NH-D14 and it shaved off 4-6c on load. Which is pretty damn impressive given the performance of the NH-D14.

Yeah, they would be both the same way, just the corsair pushing the air through the radiator, and the case fan pulling it through. All of the air directed out of the case.

Yes, on the Azza Hurrican 2000 case, I can mount up to a 340mm radiator onto the top fans.
