I did not know you could plug 4 fans into the h100?! That is good news to know!

The pump head also doubles as a 3 speed controller for the fans. I have 4 x AP 15s in P/P plugged in and have the controller set to max. Quiet as...

Quiet as what?!!?

Oh also two more questions

First- will I ever need to change the fluid?

And second - I assume it's safe for transport since its just a closed single unit and not a full put system?

Quiet as... well, my case fans are louder than the AP15s smile.gif

You will never have to change the coolant since its a closed system

Transport should be okay, just check everything before firing it up (GPU, cables etc) to make sure everythng is snug.

Not trying to hijack my thread but I am going with an h100 this weekend myself. I have a phantom 410 case and after much research I am deciding not going push pull and just use 2 gentle typhoon ap-15's in an exhaust configuration. I am going to want to mount these fans on the bottom of the radiator blowing up through correct. Or should I have the 2 fans as intake? My case is under a desk so not much room to breathe, and I read that using the h100 as exhaust in that situation would be my best bet.

As for the other 3 fan slots, if I were to have the h100 as exhaust would I want the back fan slot to be intake, as well as the front 2? Thanks in advance.

As with everything, your setup will be unique. I suggest you try intake first, check your temps and the swap over with exhaust and see what your temps are like, then go with the best for you.

Really, both of your plans sound solid... it will just depend on what temps you are comfortable with. thumb.gif

One final question. When mounting and dismounting the CPU part, do I need to worry about water leaking out onto things?

No, you should have any dramas unless your pierce the tubing, which will be really hard to do.

There have been a couple of people that have stated that their H series leaked but Corsair apparently replaced the cooler and any damaged parts.

Corsair is extremely good with their customer care and service. thumb.gif

Ive not heard any stories where Corsiar has refused to replace damaged coolers or other components damaged by a leak.

Addit: thanks for your comments, I really appreciated the feedback smile.gif
