I have them installed as well right now but I'm just wondering if one was better than the other. Sorry, english is my first language just not very good at it. biggrin.gif

If you go to my picture I have some of the 3 S GT as intake with the H105, I love the H105 over the H100i

FrozenCPU may still ahve the S GTs

Sorry I am stationed over seas and my internet went out on me all last night.

Well, it was a B, but I got my system moved to my new case. (Had parts spread out in 3 different rooms, cats and dog fighting around me...)

That drive bay gave me tons of issues, I had to literally use a razor blade on the edges of my fan controller to get the front on, and the dvd player didn't line up with the screw holes, but, the damned thing looks so pro I can't ***** too much.

I'm getting in a WD black tomorrow, I'll try and catch some pic after I install it, but, my cellphone camera sucks and I don't think I can catch just how good it looks.

*Why no case speaker Corsair? Or maybe some extra screws? kookoo.gif

I'm thinking of painting my case. A glossy cherry or Ferrari red for the fan panels and the rest a metallic or glossy white. And also the metal grills to be white too. Will normal car primer and paints be ok on a case?

I used paint meant for engines from my local auto store. Great, vibrant colors and adhere well to the plastic and metal of this case. It only took about 15 minutes to dry and then probably 12 hours to set. The time in between setting I was able to fix minor errors from painting to fast, and not have to strip it down to repaint.

Why would you need a speaker when you have a readout built into your motherboard? tongue.gif

Ive seen a few people with their h100i Rads in the front. Is this a viable thing? Ive got sli so would it be better for me to have the airflow on the gpus rather then going through the rad first?

I ran an H50 in the front for my Titan at one point it got good temps with fresh air but I prefer my H105 (H100i when it worked) on top so that the GPU(s) are getting the freshest air since they are working harder more often than my CPU. My 2 cents

I'm going to agree with this. It is absolutely best to have fresh, unrestricted airflow to the GPU(s). I understand people's thinking that putting their AIO in the front to use it as intake and get fresh air to the CPU. However, running both the top and front as intake is not a bad option. It's what I do, and it is what a lot of people do with good results.

What I did was 3 intake front, H105, (pull) intake top, 140 exhaust rear. I used some black gorilla tape to seal up all the 'vent' spots and expansions for the 140mm option at top. Created a positive air pressure case dopped temps a few degrees along with the noise a wee bit. Helps keep dust out as well biggrin.gif

If your equipment (DVD drive, fan controller, etc.), does not line up with the mounting holes in the case, try turning the component 180 degrees. I had the same problem with my Blue Ray drive. It fits only one way.
