Modifying H100i

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I would like to know, is it possible to add more fans to H100i so it has 4 fans instead of 2 stock fans?

If it is possible, is it efficient? And how to install all the fans on the radiator if possible?

i thought it came with 4 fans if not just buy 2 more and get one of these if it doesn't have a second already:

it will have screw mounts on both sides of the radiator too, not sure if it comes with extra screws for them but extra screws:

It's possible, in fact the block has two fan ports (they use splitter cables, so that means two fans each)

I'm pretty sure you'd just have to find some more long screws---or use only 2 screws for each fan.

Not sure what you mean by efficient. It'll be louder and take up more room, and you'll probably shave about 5-8 degrees from your load temps. Just an estimation.

No, it comes with only 2, this is what i have, if there are another H100i editions that come with 4 then maybe not in my region.

I have to check out if i have additional screws from that cooler, but if not then i can try to buy it somewhere.

And yes, all what i need to do is buying 2 more fans if want, but i should watch this thread first if it is worthy.

I will check out about long screws if i decide to get additional fans.

Well, i know it will be louder, in fact it is loud with only 2 fans, but i will get used to it no doubt, more louder will not be a big issue as i used to loud sounds anyway.

Well, about rooms, you mean rooms inside the case or rooms from the RAM position? my case is capable of more room, but i am not sure if it is fine with other components mostly the RAM.

And about the temp, is it really not giving much difference such as 10-15 degrees? What about if i use 4 fans and all at full or maximum speed, will this give a crazy cooling or still not much? now with stock speed 2 fans at standard speed i get around 26-33C, so with 2 more fans and all fans at maximum speed can't i get nearly 15-20C?
