i7-3820 + H100 not meeting expectations - Page 2

post #11 of 14
If you're really interested in 140mm fans (I don't necessarily recommend it), some companies make a plastic shroud that will funnel all of the air from the larger fans into the 120mm surface area of the H100.

You'll also want to make sure the fans blow THROUGH the radiator by sandwiching them between the top of the case and the rad.

Thanks for all the input guys, you've been most helpful.

I have an idea of what to try, I'll update this post when I've given it a try smile.gif

However, if you have anymore advice, don't by any means hold back.

Reseating the block might help. I'm getting around the same load temps with mine at 5GHz, I am running full water cooling though...

Right, so I tried using 2x 140mm's, and I was not impressed. If anything, it was worse than before. So, I switched back to the standard 120mm's, but they're set up to pull outside air through the rad and into the case now. It's helped a bit, but I suspect @Thracks is right, a push config would probably be better, but I don't think my case is suited very well to do it like that. But hey, it's sitting on around 60 degrees when folding with both cpu and gpu, so I'm not as disappointed now smile.gif

It should also be noted that the H100 is the only watercooling I'm sporting, everything else is air.
