Some of you might have noticed me talking about the bad performance of my h100 compared to other users.
I used the pea method to apply AS5 to the cpu as recommended by Arctic.
Someone told me to go with the X as this works better but I am just convinced that the pea method is the best to prevent air sockets.
I redid my paste and the temps were a few degrees higher, but that is probably because of the paste not cured in yet.
I have the h100 as intake in my 650D with a Demciflex filtering the air. But as some may know, I am a smoker.
So keeping that thing clean is a job itself.
Thought about giving it a shot without the filter on it. I had expected a few degrees lower because the Demci's are pretty restricted.
What do you know, the temp was more then 10c lower without the filter....
Now I noticed that I am thinking of mounting the radiator differently. Maybe I will mount it on top of the case. Just a shame that filter won't be used then, 20 euro waste.
You guys have some tips or ideas for me? I am looking at making the top closed so the rad just pulls air from underneath the radiator and dumps it in the room.
