Nothing wrong with 1600. I found a deal on the corsair site for 8GB of Dominator GT 2000. unless your using an APU processor or doing photo or CAD there isn't that big of a difference in my opinion. Your mileage may vary lol

I mainly do gaming with some Photoshop work on the side, no CAD or rendering of any kind.

I have done so much reading about it all now that my head is about to explore, it really seems that there is minimal difference,

These are the contenders at the moment.
Corsair Vengeance Pro Red 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (CMY16GX3M2A1600C9R) @ €155
Corsair Vengeance Pro Red 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 2400MHz (CMY16GX3M2A2400C10R) @ €205
Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (CMD16GX3M2A1600C9) @ €180

I went with.
Corsair Vengeance Pro Red 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1866 MHz (CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R) @ €161

thanks!

For the PSU I am still undecided.. having a hard time accepting the €90 extra to have the AX760i instead of the RM550...

Hi Guys,

I'm keen to order Corsair H100i from Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Series-Extreme-Performance-Liquid/dp/B009ZN2NH6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1394463579&sr=8-1&keywords=Corsair+Hydro+Series+Extreme+Performance+Liquid+CPU+Cooler+H100i

Also, which Corsair SP120 will be good match for Corsair H100i?
Corsair Air Series AF120 Performance Edition Twin Pack Fan (CO-9050004-WW): http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007RESGD0

Just wondering if anyone of you had managed to install Corsair H105(http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Series-Extreme-Performance-CW-9060016-WW/dp/B00HKEI3EY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1394463641&sr=8-1&keywords=Corsair+105) with Asus H87I-Plus motherboard?

Thanks for reading smile.gif

I personally ordered SP120 high performance twin pack for the H100i and the AF140 quiet edition for the front of the 250D. I know a few others here have ordered the same. I have not tested them yet, but they seem to do the job well for others.

Regarding the H105 I am not sure, but from what I read in general it is a damn tight squeeze and not really recommended...

Hope that helps.

The H100i is awesome and I can't believe the cooling performance from it. I am using the SP120 Quiet Editions on it and the temps have been great.

The loudest component in this system has to be my GPU. Now if I could water cool that at some point, I'll have a totally quiet system. It'll be interesting to see customer water cooling done in this case once more and more people get this.

I've noticed my local Microcenter keeps ordering 3 at a time and within a few days they are gone. This is where I picked mine up.

The H105 will be a really right squeeze and probably not recommended as the 100 is already tight, unless you mount fans on the exterior of the case.

That's just an optical allusion my friend! that's a normal install laying on its side. You could actually do that if you put some feet on it so the GPU could breath. I have to admit, it looks good that way, but were not seeing the factory feet sticking out the other side. Solve that issue and you would have something!

You just ordered a sweet build! you are going to love it. A couple things that might make it easier for you? The Asus Z87i Deluxe I used has a stand up VRM like your board and the tubing wouldn't quite clear the USB ports, I figured the VRM would be the problem but no. Easy to fix. Before you do anything else see which rad screw holes you will be using and mark just above them. I opened all the holes up higher 1/8" and everything fit perfectly. You can see in the pic the small amount you need. Now the Impact may have a different USB set up? the two Boards are Almost identical dimensionally.





The second thing is you can still get the H100i in place with the Mother board already mounted. You really need the board in first so you can see if the hoses are clearing.

Enjoy Mate!

I have my fans for the H100i mounted on the inside pulling air in and I've only needed to run these fans at 50%, Enermax fans, Processor rarely goes above 60 degress C.
