I had better luck mounting my h100 as an intake in my 600T. Was also able to push/pull and get much better temps. Also pushed air to my 680 giving it way better temps now too. My gpu under load is almost 10c cooler.

+ rep now I know how to put my H100 in my case right now I have it on the bottem

Glad I could be of help. I followed a thread where someone used adhesive Velcro strips. I planned on doing the same till I found some points to zip tie it

Nice build. Looks great. I love my Corsair Force GT but when I bought my 90gb 6 hours later they had the 120gb on sale for the 90gb price. I was PO'd lol. But i guess its all good. I have 51gb free after all said and done.

nice build. the h100 is perfect for the chip. I have mine top mounted with 4x120 set in push and pull as intake and under prime 95 core tems max at 49c and socket temp 55.

My next mod will be to use my old Antec 620 when I receive my bracket from Dwood. When I get round to it, I might try moving the h100 rad across nearer to the side panel and try to fit an additional couple of fans underneath to get a push/pull at the top. On the other hand, tempted to try vertically mounting like in post above.

hmmmm, decisions, decisions..... smile.gif

Updated by build today. Done a few cosmetic mods which have improved airflow - removed HDD cage, added extra fans, created a shroud for side. Added a fan to the rear of CPU a few weeks back, this reduces core temps by about 5c which was very handy for me at the time running a 4.4GHz overclock AMD 8120 (was getting rather hot). Now added the PSU shroud in carbon fibre effect, new lighting too.

New and best addition - dwood's custom bracket for the Antec Kuhler 620. Now fitted to my HD6950. Runs at like 34c idle, where as before it was around 46c. Deffo improvement, not to mention that the whole rig is not only cooler all round, but quieter.

Whilst at it, I took off my cable tied fans that I had mounted to underside of H100. Bolted them in, and offset the H100 to clear motherboard - mounting the top fans as they should be using bolts and ties.

FX8120 @ 4.4GHz was running idle at 28c. With the cooling so good, I have tweaked multiplier and voltages to get her up to 4.6GHz stable in prime95 peaking at 61c.

NEXT MODS: New PSU extensions, possibly cut out a new bigger window, backplate for HD6950, red sleeving on water pipes........ then I am done (for now anyway) smile.gif
