Fitting a Corsair H100 into a CM Storm Enforcer? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Yeah, someone else in this thread used the original holes. It was angled and slanted, in my opinion that looked terrible. All in all I would recommend a different case or an h80 if you want it to look good, the h80 and the h100 are fairly similar in performance (-1.7 C temp difference (h80 - h100) on intel I7 @ 3.8ghz - 100% load according to the h100 box)

This was the closest thing to looking good and not like i didn't give a turd.

I think it shows that most manufacturers are not taking into consideration the mobo, they should offset holes and grills. However that would be a little too hard for them to figure out since they are not the end user. biggrin.gifbike.gif

in their defense its a mid tower case released prior to the h100 and does specify what fits with the case (2 120mm fans 1 240mm fan etc)
but if they could have set up elongated holes like (_______) across the top so we could tweak the positions that would've been great rolleyes.gif

Hi, I was just wondering what kind of screws you used to connect the radiator to the Storm Enforcer cabinet. The ones that came with the h100 aren't long enough.
Thanks in advance

I did use the screws that originally came with the h100, did you try to line up the holes as I did on page 1? Also I had to shave part of the rear fan off for the I/O ports so I could get the fit. If you need direct measurements let me know thumb.gif

I got it working by using the original screws and used those to mount into the middle 4 holes on the radiator through the venting holes on the top of the Storm Enforcer. It is a tight fit but I actually didn't have to remove or do anything to the rear fan. I'll post a picture so you can see tongue.gif
PS: I did try to drill 4 holes before I came up with this solution but they didn't line up with the radiator's holes.


Sorry for the bad camera work but this is all I can do at 1 AM tongue.gif
Cable management after a few more hours of prime95 to check if this is a stable setup.

here is my way of fitting the H100 into my Enforcer:

you'll need 8 motherboard standoffs, and 2 fan filters.

first, install the 8 motherboard standoffs to one side of the H100
second, mount the H100 inside the case, like so:



third, line up the fans and the filters outside the case, like this:



fourth, screw the fans with the H100 on the other side of the case,



that's it.. now you have an H100 in your Enforcer tongue.gif




I've done this a year ago, but I thought I must share it so everyone will benefit from it.. biggrin.gif

it's not necessary to have fan filters, but it'll give it a look, plus it will cause less accidents..

in case somebody's wondering, here is my temps:

i7-2600K @4.6GHz 1.4v



min = idle
max = 100% load with prime

I have it in a push setup smile.gif

Hey sam thats such a great idea biggrin.gif im planning to get a h100 or h100i for my storm enforcer in a weeks time, seeing as the one your showing in your case is a h100, would i be able to apply the same logic to a h100i also?
