Wil a Corsair H100 or 100i fit inside my case? i5 2500k cpu

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,

I have been wondering a lot for the past days in which cooler I should take. I have been leaning a LOT towards the Corsair H100 or 100i but I don't know whether or not It can fit inside my case.

I made 2 pictures to show how everything is places inside my case.



So ill remove the top fan then and place a H100 there. Sadly I don't know if it will clear my motherboard and whether or not it will fit inside the top screw openings (I have seen some topics whereby people use the grill to fit the cooler).

Hopefully someone can help me with this smile.gif.
My current specs are all down below!

It would fit, but it'll be at a strange angle because it won't fit straight with the screw holes that are already in the case.

the h100 with the 2 fans is 52mm thick,,,if you mount the rad on top and the fans under it pushing out towards the top of the case,,the rear fan will be very close or hitting the 8pin cpu powerplug,,,what I did in my CM922,,,is I didn't use the proper holes and stepped the rad ahead an inch or so,,that gave me enough clearance for that 8 pin plug,,,you could pretty much do anything to get it to fit there,,,get some small flat washers,,and use the cooling holes instead of the regular ones,,,my h100 hung there by 4 screws for a couple years,,it wasn't even that straight,,,also the mounting screws that come with the kit are a bit long,,,so you should take something long and skinny and very gently push it through the rad mounting holes and gently spread the fins a bit so the longer screws dont just hit the fins and bend them all over the place,,,when you purchase the h100 you will see what I,m talking about,,,its no big deal,,,but it bothered me so I used rubber spacers to take up some of the length,,,,other than that it will be a tight squeeze but it will fit

Did you make any more progress? I'm looking into the tube length on the double cooler at the moment, I want to know if I can put the H100 rad in the bottom of my TJ07 (non-inverted) :/

I can't afford a proper wc solution yet
