Corsair H100 and the HAF 912

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN, the cooling in my Rig just isn't doing it for me, and I've decided that I want to over-haul the cooling system for it. I really like my HAF 912 case, it's the perfect size for everything I have and I don't want to move away from it. Now, I've seen it done only once before, and I would like to know if the H100 (given the right set-up) actually WILL fit? I would be mounting the H100 with a single set of fans on the inside exhausting air out the top. (I would also have a rear fan installed as well) Normally, I wouldn't ask a trivial question like this, but the fans I am going to be installing on the H100 would be these, and this would be the fan that I am going to put on rear exhaust. Given the fact that these fans aren't the typical square 120mm design would they still fit the same as normal square 120mm fans in this configuration? rolleyes.gif

P.S. - Pic of the only H100 in a HAF 912 that I've seen and link to how they did it.

The specs on the fans are impressive but I have not heard anything from people that use them on this site (that ive seen).

The fans should fit okay. the screw holes are universal so mounting shouldnt be an issue.

Ive been looking at these fan also, so if you decide to get them, pls post back with feed back.

The H100 should fit, looking at the pic but also have a look here; it is for P/P though...

Looks like the overtorqued the hell out of those screws. Look at the corners of the fans.

I currently have an H100 in my haf 912, I am just running it with a single set of fans (the ones that come with it) and was able to use the exhaust fan in the rear of the case as well. I wasnt able to use the stock pre drilled mounting holes in the case since the radiator is to long and sets at a slight angle. But I managed to make it all fit without any modifications to my case.

Hmm, did they actually do it ? From the article it doesn't seem like it is actually properly mounted to the case.

A better method would be as they suggest, mounting the rear fan outside the case. In order to protect the fan from possible accidental contact with wires or something else, I would suggest you buy a 120mm Fan Grill:



Edit: also, notice how that motherboard has a different layout from traditional motherboards. I don't even see exactly where the CPU power cable from the PSU is. Normally it is at the top of the motherboard, and it is doubtful that two 120mm fans and the H100 would fit with the cable connected, I guess one can only find out if one tries it. I just opened my case and I tried to imagine how the H100 would fit in addition to the two 120mm Noiseblockers XLP I have there, and I don't think it would. I would surely have to remove the rear fan and move it outside the case, but even then there wouldn't be enough clearance for the CPU power cable at the top. I could be wrong, I guess one only finds out by trying. Factors such as where exactly the CPU power connector on each different motherboard is and if you can fit the cable to pass in that free space in the area where the fans have that free space at the corners, could determine whether it fits or not.

Yeah I saw that thread in my previous search, but the case there is the HAF X with p/p not the 912. I've been eyeing these fans for awhile now as well. I will post with some feed back here if I finally decided to jump for it. Some reviews on the Egg stated that with the "High Static Pressure" versions they were seeing temp. improvements on the H100 (with a single set of fans) by 6-7C. thumb.gif

Good to hear from some fellow 912 owners, but can you please explain a bit more on what you mean by this? How does it sit at an angle and you said the top 120mm fan mounts don't line up with the rad? How did you manage to get it mounted then? headscratch.gif

P.S. - Thanks for the quick replies everyone!

In order to keep the back case fan in operation I had to move the radiator forward a little and in doing this I couldn't use the stock mounting locations. Remember the case is actually designed for external radiator instead of internal but it will work. So in moving it forward I ended up running the screws through the "vent" holes which is no big deal for me. The area on top of your case for venting is smaller than your radiator, so the stamped raised section is to small for it to dot perfectly. When you mount it you will notice this thus angling the radiator slightly. I haven't had any issues since the install, I operate my amd 960t unlocked to a x6 @4ghz and can keep my pump on the lowest setting during gaming....even on an extended bf3 session I never get past 45c on the CPU socket temp.

Ah I see what you mean. Thanks, when I get mine in I'll see what I can do it terms of mounting and such.

those people dont have a clue about what they got by the fan switch...
easy way to explain...

the OE fans are: 2650rpm, 92cfm, 7.7mm/h2o creating 65° loaded heat for the overclock...
the SP120 fans are:2350rpm, 62cfm, 3.1mm/h2o
slow the fans down in rpm and reduce the static pressure by more than half.. and
the system is cooler?? does that sound like something can get cooler? especailly
on a high fin per inch radiator when air volume is critical...

the SP120 fans are a great fan (i have many of them) but the performance is nothing
like the OE. the only reason to switch them is noise tolerance... you want a better
performing fan, the noise gets louder as the fan generates more flow through the
fins... simple..
