Cooling problem

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I purchased the following components:

Motherboard: ASUS P9ZW-D8 WS
RAM: CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10 (64 GB)
Processors: Intel Xeon E5-2650
Cooling: Corsair Hidros H80i
Case: Cooler Msater Cosmos II

My problem:
Both H80i could not be placed inside the case. Only one is possible.
Most of other air cooling seems to be obstructed by the height of the RAM modules.

Any idea about it? Some who has the same processor, RAM, and motherboard? What to use for the cooling system?

Where do you have the Water cooler mounted? Are you just using the fans that came with the case?

I can place one in the rear of the case, where the 140 mm fan comes originally. But There is no space in the upper area inside the case because the components in the upper area of the motherboard and the height of the RAM Modules obstruct that position for the radiator. I tried to put one fan in the outside but eventough it is not enough space to acomodate the radiator and the second fan inside the case.

The only one way to acomodate it is putting both fans and radiator totally outside of the case, but I would need to leave the upper area of the case totally open. It is not a happy idea.

I have (by now) only the fans that come with the kit.

Hm. That is a hard position to be in. I have personally mounted a H60 with only one fan and it worked pretty well. A push and pull setup did do a bit better.

For now I would just put one in if you can't get the space figured out. I would just mount your radiator with one fan attached where the rear 140mm fan is.

how about the top-rear part of cosmos II? wouldn't it fit without hitting the other H80i?
are you using a push-pull fan configuration on H80i? that will indeed pose some problems...

IchibahnSLC: Putting only one cooling kit in the rear of the case, I can have only pne processor wokng. May not be enough for the tasks I need to perform. But it coul be a desperated option by now.

Najiro: cold you explon me what/how is a "push-pull" configuration of the fan?

It's when you mount 2 fans to the radiator. One to push the air in on one side and one to pull it through on the other? I can never get it straight lol.

Maybe use a stock cooler for the second cpu if it came with one?

Yes, I am using that config, but how does it impact in my space (and main) problem?

Maybe something like this will work?

The set up you have right now will probably cause weird heat spots.

Can you mount the second radiator on the side of the hard drive bay?
