bitfenix prodigy Adding h100i questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have my h100i on the way and I was just wondering if theres any tips/advise anybody can give me to make installation smoothly.
- should I mount the block before or after i mount the rad in the case? (just because its a small area)
- should i remove the pre applied thermal paste off the block?
Just wanna open this discussion up for people who have put the h100i in the prodigy and if there was any hiccups or just any advise you can give me.

Also, kind of off this subject but I have a corsair cx600w psu and I was wondering would a gtx770 be compatible with my PSU because the 770 needs 42amps at 12v, and if im correct the cx600 is 40amps at 12v( i think)

thanks guys

1) Mount the radiator into the case first. (Don't forget to put the fans on the radiator too)
2) Definitely do not remove the thermal paste that comes with the block. It's very high quality paste and you need it smile.gif

I have the GTX 770 running with a Corsair TX750 V2 and even 750w is a bit more than I need. You're good to go. Just make sure you use the 6pin and an 8pin power connector on the graphics card.

The 8pin power connector will most likely be a 6pin with a small 2pin hanging off. Just connect that too, you'll see wink.gif

p.s.

What processor do you have? And what case?

Hi Rich,
thanks for the response. I'm using a Bitfenix Prodigy (so thats why I was asking this), if there is any advise you would have for mounting, ect.
I will be putting it on the top of my cases, definitely with the fans, and as far as the thermal paste, I was going to add Noctua TIM, but i wont since the preapplied it good enough.

I'm running 3570k, msi7950, asrock itx, 8gb corsair vengeance, ssd.

I see on my psu I have those connectors, but i was just curious if i could support the 770. I'm not looking to upgrade gpu for a while, im happy with my 7950. I will start OC it with my 3570k OCed once i get my h100i smile.gif

Excuse me - my bad.

Well, with the Betfinex Prodigy be careful using an h100i. Apparently it will fit, but then you can't fit a DVD player in (or any 5,25" bay drive).
