Can see a lot is being discussed over H100i, but seeing as I am going to overclock my i5 3570k, would I be better of using that system or using proper watercooling? Currently overclocking my HD7870 too but not sure if I want to go further so that I need watercooling for it.

You don't need "proper water cooling" overclocking any processor. Most of those who use real water cooling also water cooler their GPUs as well. You can overclock on stock heat sinks if you wanted to, it wouldn't be wise but you could. You can overclock to any speed, it just depends on your cooler. I have the 100i and I'm at OC 4.4GHz but that's because I got a bad batch, others can get up to 5.0GHz on Corsair H100i but also you can get up to 5.0 on aftermarket air cooling as well. You can get a real water cooling if you wish, but it's not necessary, I personally think that they look stupid. I like a clean setup though and it just makes it look like crap. I have only liked a few but not enough to do water cooling to my own rig in the manner.

I've seen a lot more photos with the rad inside, i'd probably do the same if i ever went liquid cooling.
I forget what the stock fan direction was. Heat rises, so if you have enough proper positive air flow then it's best to have the front/bottom/side as intake and the back/top as exhaust. Better for my setup at least, I'm sure others will agree.

Ahh I can't figure out how to mount the H100i in the top of the 410. I've screwed the rad in but it appears that there's no screw holes open to screw the fans in on the inside (Unless I've done it wrong?). How do you mount it properly? Anyone got any pictures that can help to show me which screws go where for the rad/fans?

HeHeHe, sorry, this should help, maybe. It sounds like you screwed it into the wrong holes, probably you lined up the rad with the 140mm fan holes instead of the 120mm

Put rad on top, line up holes

Line up fan on bottom

Do you screw the rad into place by putting the screws into the rad from the inside or outside of the case?

No, you use the 8 long screws that came with your setup.
You line up the rad on top, line up a fan hole on bottom and screw it in from the fan to the rad.

I didn't use them, I don't know what they are for to be honest, I didn't even care to look into it xD
You can use the washers if you want.

I guess the small screws would be used to mount the rad if you you were using bigger fans that would be installed, you know what I mean? If I could make quick video for you, I would but I don't have my cam

Ahh so screwing the fans in sort of secures the rad into place?
