[Official] Cooler Master HAF-XB Club! - Page 93

post #921 of 10493
So, after running this loop about 24/7 for over a month now, decided to check and see how things were going. Durelene tubing was still clear, had some slight, SLIGHT hazing, nothing I'd get worried about. I did reconfigure the layout though. Changed it so the pump was now pulling from the res instead of pumping into it.





Only had to change 1 tube, reverse the pump, change a couple of fittings, and re-position the res, but otherwise was an easy fix. Was heck of a lot easier to fill as well! I'll probably order a couple more 90 degree fittings later so I can fit my res back to where it was (it kinked the tubing due to the tight fit there) but right now just have it mounted to the vents on the side panel.

I can't help but wonder why you put that Antec Kholer radiator in the front vs the back where it would look a lot more appopriate as I highly doubt your temps are better pulling air form the front vs the rear if you had decent intake fans.

I understand what your saying but I didnt put it in the front because i thought it would get better temps, mounting it on the back the rad would cover a good portion of the nice looking thermal armor.

Is the Coolermaster 200mm fan the only one that fits in the top or is there a better one that you guys recommend?

Also, are there any fan filters that fit for the top? I'd need a pretty 'heavy-duty' one since I'm thinking about putting the case under the stairs, so it's a prime target for _a lot_ of dust.

To me the configuration of the mounting holes looks exactly the same, but I bought the CM megaflow because I couldn't get a straight answer here on the same question......
I would like to be able to turn off the LED on demand + get a ball bearing one. Here's to you having more luck than me :-) I find I use way too much time researching these things.....

I know what you said in the rest of that sentence smile.gif, but there is a way to make 200mm megaflow fans turn on or off on demand but it takes a little bit of work plus adding an on/off switch - I did this to my 2 200mm megaflow fans for my HAF 912 case.

 

Here's a guide: http://www.overclock.net/t/820190/guide-adding-a-switch-for-the-cooler-master-megaflow-leds/0_100

Plus if you need to get underneath, it's easier to stand the board perpendicular when the rad is in that spot.

So, I've been having some issues with my H100i...as far as led's are concerned...however I was recently advised to rma the unit by "ram guy" in the corsair forums... Seems the issue is very rampant as far as led's and noise is concerned... I may decide to swap to another h100i and hope for the best, or switch to an h80i... if I do switch to the h80i...should I keep it in the front where the h100i is, or put it at the back? will it affect cooling performance
