I don't know about the corsair link thingy ...

I just used an adapter and hooked the H100's 4pin molex power connector to my Corsair 600T case built in fan controller ... I preferred the case's fan control mechanism because even at it's lowest setting, it still applies a bit of power (IE > never completely interrupting power) which I thought would be good so that I might never accidentally *completely* shut off the pump.

But yes. Notching the pump back a teeny bit (no more than 4/5%) completely silences it and the performance is just about identical.

Best.

Just finished all my mods (shroud, lapping, pressure mount, used shin estu tim) and switched out 2 corsair and 2 slipstreams for AP15 Gentle Typhoons that I am running on high and im barely seeing any temp difference... Someone up there hates me..

And so just today, on a whim, I took my H100 mount apart cause I wanted to re apply some thermal compound (got some Shin Etsu); I also wanted to check the spread of thermal compound from my last mount as it was my first solid high pressure mount since lapping the CPU.
(Sadly, I couldn't take pictures of this cause I didn't have any batteries in my camera but I will next time cause it's pretty cool)
After unbolting the H100 and inspecting the spread of the compound on the CPU heat spreader, I could see the typical near perfect circle left from my (tiny) BB sized dot of compound that was initially applied to the center of the CPU, but what was really crazy was that extending vertically through that was a perfect (I mean perfect) vertical imprint of the rectangular 2700K die/core that lies directly under the surface of the heatspreader. It was nuts. I'd never seen anything like it.
My only guess is that I lapped the CPU down so thin that the high pressure mount actually flexes the copper heatspreader around/down on to the silicon die/core ... super cool looking. I was kicking myself for not being able to take pics... LOL. Anyway, so I guess a super deep lap job and a high pressure mount is almost as good as removing the heatspreader and mounting directly on the core ... almost.
Anyway... I'll snap some pics next time I change out the TIM.
;-)

^What were your temps after lapping? :thinking.gif:

Oddly, I didn't notice too much of a change; my idle temps are generally about 1/2C better now but load temps are the same. This is different from previous lap jobs I've done and where I've seen more dramatic gains from lapping. To be honest, the typical spread of TIM on my contact surface was always very uniform and good, even before the lapping. Also, when lapping, I noticed that my CPU was not convex at all (past CPUs have been *very* convex) and so I guess I was already at the limits of the H100's cooling ability, even before I lapped the CPU.

The idle temp is indeed pretty amazing, though. Even after running for a day, my idle temp is consistently only 8C over room ambient. Generally, I would see this when first starting the rig and then it would normalize at about 11/12C over ambient...but now it's pegged at 8/9C over all the time. I loaded at 5.0ghz for about an hour last night and temps hit 80C only once (room ambient of 24C). Of course, this new 2700K needs some pretty fat volts (1.46v) to do it stable and so I think that load temp is still really good. I'm still kicking myself for returning my first 2700K which only needed 1.39v to run at 5ghz. When first building the system, I had a faulty MB and mistakenly thought it was my CPU...so I returned the CPU for a new one. Duh ... redface.gif ... but temps are still shiney all day at 5.0ghz ... especially when considering normal work load vs Prime95, etc.

I hope to get a custom kit in the next year or else a better all-in-one type kit like the Rasa RX360, etc... but I'm pleased with the hacked H100 set up for now. And it's so freaky silent, which I love.

REP+ times a million!

I can't tell as of yet since there such a variance in my ambient but if it stays like this or even near this you sir are a GENIUS! I had a lot of problems putting this together, my hardware store not having the right screws/nuts/springs or washers after hunting for them for about 2 hours and 4 - 5 different hardware stores. I had to settle with over-sized springs and had to do a little drilling on the H100. Putting the nuts on the over-sized springs however took a good 30 minutes and left me without fingers, I'm typing with my toes. All in all this took 2 hours to do after getting the parts needed and hurt, but looks like it paid off BIG TIME.

Anyways, I am seeing a 12 degree difference in load temps. Some of that has to be attributed to my cooler ambient I'm sure. This brings me to a question how far am I supposed to tighten this? I still have more room to tighten but, I'm scared of my motherboard going pop.

Thanks!thumb.gif

I am sooooo jealous! I didnt see a temp decrease from my mounting I may have to reseat it..

Completely compress the spring if you can (you said it was oversize, so it make not be possible)

Just tighten it until it is snug or untill you see the screws starting to bend inward towards the center of the H100 block..

When I did mine I noticed the arms of the H100 started to bend down to the motherboard.. Thats when I stopped..

Most importantly... Make sure you tighten them ALL EVENLY!

Congrats on the results!!

I forgot to mention the first time I didn't use washers or spacers whatever you want to call them, I didn't see much of an improvement. Second time around I did which made it so hard to fit the nut on the springs which was what ruined my fingers but gave amazing results. I'm not sure if the first time around I seated the block properly as I was rushing to get it done or the washers made all of the difference.

Congrats on the results ... I saw similarly positive results but more like 5/6C drop.

As far as how far to tighten? I'm using the stock Corsair back plate, which is sort of flimsy and bends real easy...so I just tighten until it feels like it's snug and also until I can see the screws beginning to bend in a bit (due to the flexing of the backplate). Otherwise, just tighten with reasonable force until they feel like they are going to need a lot of force to continue and you should be fine.

Also, I think I shorted out a MB when first attempting to do this mod cause like I said, the Corsair backplate is real bendy/flexible and I think I flexed it so much that it made contact with some other component on the underside of the motherboard, thus causing a short. Since then, I've wrapped the entire thing in duct tape (several times around) and haven't had any problems. I also put the sort of thick rubber spacers from the original Corsair mount between the backplate and the motherboard.

I didn't find the mod difficult at all (my case makes it easy as it has a cut out for access to the back of the motherboard). Just inserted a few screws and tightened things down. Having the right sized spring size also makes things a bit easier... but hey, sounds like you got it suss'd. Good job.

Best.

I have a know that my lower ambient caused some of the drop. I'll try to get my ambient up a bit to usual temps and I'll give it a try again. I'll keep you guys informed.
post #40 of 65
I picked up an EK Univsersal Back Plate which is thick and comes with thick plasic washers.. SO its pretty solid..

IM going to wait 40hrs to see if my tim cures.. If not I will try to reseat it and maybe turn the H100 90 degrees to see if I get better temps and maybe tighten it more this time around.

So jelly!

You guys wanna post pics? I have washers on both sides of my springs.. Ill take a pic and upload later tonight or tomorrow
