Cus the way I see it, I'd have the two front fans as intake, the two panel fans as intake, the radiator fans as intake, and only the rear fan as exhaust.

Also, is there much to gain from going push pull with the h100i? I was getting 29 degree temps at idle with an Antec 620 in push pull intake, and now my h100i is at 33-35 degrees at idle as exhaust.

Much better load temps though, 43-46 degrees at load in Far Cry 3, all settings maxed out at 1920x1080.

So ya, any insights or tips?

Funny that you bring this up, i built mine about 2 weeks ago and i was wondering why it was laggy at times. I open the case and come go find out that i never plugged in my H80I Sata connection, so i went to check my processor temp at idle and it has been running at 105c or more when in use. How the hell didnt the thing not burned out on me, playing games between 3 hours to 6 hours at night is beyond me. Hooked it up now its running at 43c idle

Thats how I maintain positive pressure in the C70.

Stacked with Cougars, Best Fans IMO. Except on the H100i where Corsair Fans are used in push at the moment.

And what kind of temps are you getting with that setup? I was thinking of getting matching h100i PWM fans from Corsair for push pull since it seems the h100i is finnicky with 3rd party fans.

ohno-smiley02.gif I get antsy when my temps get above 55 degrees... 105 is insane. Don't CPUs throttle or shut down past certain temps?

That's what i thought but apparently not...

I know that my 3570k throttles down at 98C+ and 105C is the listed max temp.

The reason why your CPU idle higher when using H100i is because the exhaust setup. With Antec 620, you set it up as intake which means it getting fresh/cold air from outside while with H100i, it getting warm air instead since you set it up as exhaust (pulling air from inside the case). Right now, I'm running H100 (non-i) with the fans setup as exhaust. I like this way because it also cooling the VRMs. It suck up the warm air from VRMs heatsink which can result lower operating temperature for the VRMs. This will make the CPU run a bit warmer but I like this way. I get delta temperature with idle & under load are 7C & ~30C respectively (that is 7C above ambient when idle & 30C above ambient when under load).

You can set up the radiator fans as intake like you did with Antec 620. You'll get better CPU temp but this also means it dump hot air inside the case. To counter this, make sure you have very good exhaust fan at the back, preferably high CFM fans.

Link works fine with the Cougars.

Idle around 23-25, When under load about 45-50. If stress testing eg Prime & Furr = About 56 on CPU and 65 on GPU.

Good enough for me and thats with the H100i on low eg fans at 800 rpm.

That's exactly what I was thinking, glad to know I wasn't too far off the mark. Any advice on push/pull setups? Is it worth it, will it fit in the case?

Good to know, I'll keep an eye out for them. Oooh plus these http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835553002 would look good with my colour scheme.

That's the exact 120mm one's I have. I also have the 140mm one's but they are not PWM. Cost a bit but work great and I prefer the sound they make. It's much lower and doesnt sound like a fan at all. When you crank them up the case sounds like it's a wind tunnel lol.

Cracking Fans. Go for it! You simply won't regret them.

EDIT

Just seen the price. $9.99 :O

That's dead cheap. Buy them now! I paid £14.99 for each of mine. They are harder to find in the UK. Ended up spending around £120 on the case fans lol. About 10% of the budget gone on fans alone lol.

Space possibly, How you do you intent to mount them?
