Cases for RIVE - Page 2

post #11 of 28
H100 comes with 2 fans, you will need to buy the other 2, or replace the original fans with a new matching set of 4 (recommended)

I have the HAF-X, H100, and RIVE too - great fit for air cooling, not so much if you plan to go water down the road - it's simply not as accommodating as the Silverstone offerings. That's my next step.

Everything will fit great for you in the HAF-X though for sure. Make sure you replace the rear exhaust with a high RPM fan if you plan on doing intake with the top fans into the H100 with push/pull.

Any set of 4 you recommend ? And will do, is it best to do push pull with the h-100 at the top or use the top as exhaust fans?
post #13 of 28
You can do both, although I don't think the H100 ships with screws to accommodate push/pull from what I remember.

As for fans I believe you need ones with high static pressure, have a look around on OCN, there's bound to be a thread on it.

Why not look at the Fractal Arc Midi? It looks better and can fit the H100 as well and is smaller.

Honestly, I would get the Phantom over the HAF-X.

The Fractal Arc Midi doesn't fit an E-ATX board like the RIVE.

if you like a nice side window this is how a RIVE looks like in a switch 810 smile.gif if you're not going to be doing a crazy push/pull rad setup like mine, you will have tons of room up top.
