The bonus you get from an H100 is tiny on a normal scale. Unless you are over clocking to 5ghz or something, even a h60 will do fine at stock to medium over clock kind of range. If you want performance consider the h80, its literally the H100 with half the radiator and can be mounted as your exhaust in push pull with great effect.

just wondering can the H100 be mounted at the front of the 500r by default? (the HDD cages being removed and the two stock fans still there)

I don't think the tubes would stretch that far.

i have seen people who have a corsair H60-70-80 whose tubes go from the CPU to the top fan of the front of the corsair 500r so why wouldnt the H100 be capable of it?

Thanks for helping out. Cos h80 price compare to h100 isn't very big difference in Singapore. I would rather get h100. So I hope some one can solve this problem for me. If
I would to get h100 I will try to mount it inside (top). I'm scare that my MB heatsink & 8-pin connector will block the 2 fan.
post #1716 of 4610
H80 does good enough for me its mounted to the rear of my case with the rear fan moved above to the roof and i also added another from my old hyper 212 plus lol
450

edit: just looking at that i may be tempted to put some lighting in around the whole top section green glow from above will prob go nicely with the white at the front and side... thumb.gif

I would like everything to be on the inside if possible. anyone have any suggestions?

How did you solve it. I have an ASUS P5Q-E and the rear fan on the H100 would not fi because of the heatsink. I had to offset the fan on the H100 using zipties.Been working OK for 6 mos now, but I am going to replace the MB with an Asus P8Z77-V and don't want the same grief.
