Using Corsair H100 Without any fans.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Is it safe for me to use corsair H100 without any fans on the radiator ?

There are 3 fans in the computer case.

The reason why I can't use the fans is cause the don't fit :/

The Cpu is AMD x4 945. The computer is a basic gaming computer.

You need to have at least a little airflow for the radiator to work as intended. Otherwise the heat would likely recirculate back into the loop since its not being moved off the fins of the radiator

Dont have any zipties?

It could work if you had a ton of positive pressure and nowhere for it to go except through the rad. I dont know how well it would work though.

Sure, as long as the room is kept at decent temps you should be fine, the rad should still remove heat from the water, just not as good as it would with a fan on it. Monitor your cpu temps more if you use it. People have ran oc'ed chips with a h100 and no fans and been just fine, also depends on your case though.

I ran my H100i without any fans for a few days and it coped pretty well. That was with 2 fans in the front as intake and 1 in the rear as exhaust.

You would need all intake fans on your case. If you had intake fans on the front/back/side, and had your fanless H100 mounted on top, the air would have nowhere to go but through the rad and out the top. Airflow would be pretty terrible though. Much of the air would probably be sucked out by the PSU, but I suppose you could flip the fan on it so that it was intake as well.
