H100i inside antec 300?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
If I remove the drive bay from the Antec 300, would an H100i fit in there? I belive I have seen some people do that here on OCN.net but I'm not sure. I'm trying to get my 1090T @ 4Ghz but the hyper212+ is holding me back.

Youd probably have to remove some of the lowest 5.25 drive bay as well, but it should fit. The hoses may not be long enough for you to mount the radiator all the way up against the front of the case though. Youve also got to keep in mind that youd be dumping all the heat from the radiator inside of your case, youd need sufficient exhaust or your GPU and VRM temps would go up quite a bit.

I'm planning on doing it like this guy. It doesn't look that hard.

Looks good. The H100i has a little larger radiator than the h100, but it should still fit without having to mod the bottom 5.25 bay.

The endcap where the hoses attach is thicker on the i model.

Thanks. I just love how this guy did it. Will it be a problem since the Antec 300 has two intake fans in the front and there will be another two fans from the h100i so there will be 4 total. Will that be an issue or something like that?

No, itll just work like a push/pull radiator config. Slightly better temps, slightly more noise.

I have one question that's been bothering me for quite some time now, how hard or what are the chances of water leaking from the h100i? I'm scared because I have seen some posts of people saying that they have experienced water drops from their corsair water coolers. Is it anything to worry about?

I'm about to purchase the H100i but I'm looking at the dimensions of the h100i and antec 300 and I'm not sure if it will fit exactly. It looks like it will be off by a couple of millimeters. I don't want it to be loose on the case if it doesn't fit exactly.

H100i

Radiator Dim. 120 x 275 x 27mm
Fan Dim. 120 x 120 x 25mm

Antec 300


120mm Fans 2 front 120 x 25 mm
1 rear 120 x 25 mm
140mm Fans 1 top 140 x 25 mm
