I wouldn't bother buying a 140 if you already have a 120 sitting there. There is only a difference of about 5 cfm. Not really worth the $20 if you ask me.

I will say that the H100i is awesome even though it was a PITA to get in this case with my mobo. Pretty nice that my temps are a few degrees lower than the the H60.
That is awesome that you got the G10 to fit in this case. thumb.gif
Thanks! it was a tight fit getting the extra radiator in there but once I had the orientation right it went pretty smoothly. I'm sure hanging fans on the outside of my case is stupid overkill but hey, this is Overclock.net. And I'll be seeing just how far I can push those clocks here soon.

BTW, how is the new South Park game?
FREAKING HILARIOUS! If you are a South Park fan I highly recommend it. I know it's a sppof on RPG's as well but sadly it's one of the better ones I've played in awhile. Definitely worth it.

Hi all,

I've just test several fan position (negative or positive pressure)

- Room temp => 21 °
- i4670k with Noctua NH-U9B with just one fan
- MSI GTX 780 Gaming

- 2x80 exaust, 2x120 intake, 1x140 intake : Idle => CPU : 28 / GPU : 28 // BF4 => CPU : max 59 / GPU : max 72
- 2x80 exaust, 2x120 intake, 1x140 exaust : Idle => CPU : 28 / GPU : 28 // BF4 => CPU : max 59 / GPU : max 70
- 2x80 exaust, 2x120 exaust, 1x140 exaust : Idle => CPU : 28 / GPU : 26 // BF4 => CPU : max 61 / GPU : max 58

Negative pressure is overall better in this case. I don't test with H100i because is too noisy for me.

Wait for an other air cooler with better thermal possibility (clearance ....)

Thanks for the heads up, on the 140mm fan. I'll place the 120mm in there and see how it does in terms of airflow.

I don't blame you at all for hanging the fans off the side of the case, sometimes you have to do what you have to do. LOL!

I'm an occasional fan of South Park, but this game really intrigues me. How is the 780Ti doing in this case? I'd love to get a 780 or 780Ti, but the 770 does a decent job holding its own @ 1080p.

That's interesting to find. I have the same CPU cooler and setup but my GPU is the 780 reference blower. I'll give it a try with everything setup as an exhaust, but afraid of the extra dust.

Extra Dust ? All enter are filtred, no problem with that smile.gif I have two cat's and many hair ball .... but nothing in my case. Try and feeback me wink.gif (58° with a GTX 780 in BF4 with ultra setting is very good result)

Those are some nice temps. I'm running a H100i with all positive pressure and no rear 80mm fans. I am allowing this to exhaust the heat out the rear naturally. DOH! LOL!
  • EVGA 770ACX (not OC)
  • i5 2500K (not OC)


I have the H100i w/ 2x120SP120's and the stock 140mm. All of these are as intakes.

My temps:
  • On idle, my CPU is 26-29 degrees and the GPU is around 29 degrees.
  • On load, my CPU hits 44-45 degrees and the GPU around 59 degrees.

If all the fans are in exhaust, doesn't the air have to enter from places that don't have filters?

Yes but where ? IO port ? ... too close, vent near HDD ? I check

The 780 ti is doing great. Haven't had any issues with any games so far. Might be overkill for 1080p though. I'm running 2560x1440.

Overclocking results so far. This is by no means final as I feel I can easily push this card further.
I did a baseline run with 3DMark 11 on the extreme settings before changing anything. Card was monitored with GPU-Z and all settings were modified using EVGA Precision X. Stability was then tested with Furmark and a final run with 3DMark 11 to see how much my score has improved.

Final clocks so far..
GPU 1100 MHz
Boost 1152 MHz
Memory 1900 MHz (7600 MHz Effective)



Benchmark before overclock...


Benchmark after overclock...
