I was thinking of parting it out. Like you said, just add a pump and a block, it looks like everything else is there. Maybe take one of the rads out and fit it in my case. Pump and a block wouldn't be that much, would they?

Update: I called the number but only left a voice mail. Haven't heard back yet. Tried to text the number last night, and it came back saying the number is a land line. So, here I sit waiting!

and recently I changed the back exhaust to a Corsair AF140 LED






but I have a question, I plan to change the fans of my H100i soon, was thinking of a push/pull configuration with good static pressure fans, since I mainly edit videos with this rig, my CPU always gets too hot, it's a 4770k overclocked to 4.2ghz only. But since I live in a tropical place (Philippines), it's rly hot here and so it intensifies the heat of my CPU also (or am I wrong?) it goes to max 75C (or even like 80C) while I'm editing and especially if I'm rendering

the problem is that as you can see on the 2nd photo and the last photo, below the H100i is just the 140mm radiator fan with no horizontal clearance at all, I'm thinking if I'm gonna place a fan there, it will be a problem, for sure.

should I force a fan into there? (somehow, or I think that's rly impossible) or completely remove one side of the fans on my Kraken x60 that is the radiator of my g10 GPU cooler, cooling my 290x.

or work with 3 fans only with the radiator? I am no genius when it comes to this, is uneven fans on a radiator even applicable.

I want both my components to last long, like I wish I could push/pull all of them, even if it's just a little celsius improvement, I'd take it.


anyway here's another photo showcasing the might air 540! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Spelio I have wondered for a while what your avatar was and so I looked it up. WOW! what a crazy commercial. I spent some time in Japan and I have seen some pretty weird stuff but man that commercial is pretty close to the top. Anyone else wondering too search Anabuki Chan commercials.on youtube. It will at least make you chuckle.

Ha, I never knew it was from a commercial. I saw it many, many years go (10+ easily) on a forum or website somewhere and thought it was too funny to not use. I'll have to look that up, thanks for the info! thumb.gif

Hey post in the z87 sabertooth thread too smile.gif

Are you talking about push/pull on the h100? I have a h110 and I don't think it fits.

I'll be posting up pics of my build tomorrow. Finally got my replacement stock case fans!

Thanks I just thought it was pretty funny. And you found the translated version. I still don't really understand why a construction company would have a commercial like that but I don't fully understand the Japanese either.
