Oh ok!

Thanks smile.gif

Does anyone know if I can have a optical drive in the 5.25" bay with the h100i?

and will I be able to move the case around with the h100i in it to other rooms in my house ?

last but not least.. Does the kit come with the coolant pre done ?

Thanks!

I don't think you can fit an optical drive in the 5.25" bay while having a h100i in there unless maybe you mod it..Go the easy route and get an external disk drive, and I move my prodigy around all the time with the h100i, no problems at all.

Like MrSharkington said, you won't be able to fit a drive with H100i in it, way too tight. especially you have a 140mm as an exhaust.
If you fit the H100i properly, then there won't be a problem moving your case around.

Ok, Thanks guys for your help!

I have made my decision that I will just buy two quiet edition fans and than put them on the top as exhausts,

I will then get a good quality CPU air cooler, that has a high clearance for ram such as the corsair vengeance pro. suggestions?

Reason for change is that I want an internal blu ray drive not external!

You could still get a closed loop watercooler such as H60 and mount in as an exhaust, so you will have more space for your blu-ray drive and 2x 120mm fan on top too. Then you don't have to worry about clearance for ram.

But, if you do insist on getting a air cooler, then I believe Hyper 212+ is a good choice. As for the ram, get the vengeance pro Low Profile, so the ram doesn't block too much air coming from your 200mm fan in front.

wow, thanks for your quick responses!

I have 4 questions.

1. Do you mean put the h60 at the rear of the case ? EDIT* oh do you mean like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hIKEaszXH8

So I can put a fan on the top, with a h80i and then the fan on that ?

2. Is the H80i much better?

3. Will all of these be aduqaute for gaming/overclocking to around 4.0-4.4ghz ? (including the hyper 212)

4. What is the noise like for all of these ?

Thanks!

1. Yes, mount the H60 by your 140mm place.

2. H80i is better than H60 BUT I beleive the radiator is a bit bigger, so if you mount that on top you won't have enough space for another 120mm top exhaust fan.

3. my i5 3570k is clocked to 4.5Ghz with a H60 as the only exhaust and only 1x 140mm as intake...since my current case only fits 2 fans -_- but i'm getting 55 - 60c +/- while gaming.
As for the Hyper 212+, its a very good air cooler. For the price of course.

4. They are quiet, IF your fan speed is low, otherwise most fans get noisy during high RPM. Unless you control them yourself.

All right, thanks for your help smile.gif

I think that is all my questions for now.. lol biggrinsmiley.gif

Okay first if you are going to use the optical bay you will only fit one fan in the top. The H80 will fit fine at the top with the push pull configuration.

As for fan choices the Noctua NF-F12 PWM fans have given me the best results with AiO units. The Corsari SP are okay but if you are going to use them, get the PWM models.

Concerning the feet question...

When you look at other feet replacement options with any amount of lift for the case the price is actually pretty reasonable. I just used Bing reward points for Amazon coupons and ended up getting these for like $3. Actually I bought the 2" mode, they are easily enough for the weight of a fully loaded system and will give me 1" lift on the case for clearance for the air intake. They should be in later this week.

If you're on a budget and live in the US, the Cooler Master Seidon 240M is on sale on Newegg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103181

It's $69.99 after MIR, if you use Newegg's mobile site and pay via Google Wallet (and use promo code "WALLET") you can save an additional $15 and get the final price down to $54.99 thumb.gif

I use it for my Prodigy and it fits great. Just like the H100i, it's a dual 120 rad, and is pre-filled. Mounting is incredibly easy, but it doesn't have as many features as the H100i. I just set the fans tot he CPU header and let the motherboard/BIOS's default PWM cooling settings do the work for me.
