lmao, newegg basically charges me as much as the fan for return shipping... I WILL MAKE THIS PURCHASE WORTH IT

Basically, what I'm thinking is that, since on the MSI R9 390 card, hot air exhausts out the top, front, and bottom. Maybe if I oriented the 200mm fan to exhaust while the other 2 AF120s as intake, the 200mm is directly taking the hot air out of the 390... although I might need to remove the front panel. Why does it have to be solid ;_;

will report back

Something you may consider is simply changing the fan profile to something less aggressive and installing two 80mm fans in the rear as exhaust. Setting the two rear fans at a slightly more aggressive fan profile should even things out for you but that's more money and typically 80mm fans are loud but it is always an option to consider.

I'm looking to swap my sig rig into a 250D.

- Should I ditch the H100i and get another cooler?
- Which motherboard is recommended for this case? I was looking at the ASUS Impact but can't seem to find any for sale.

-250D was build with AIO coolers and H100i in mind so as long as you are happy no need to ditch it.
-Any ITX motherboard should fit so it really depends on your budget and preferences.

Thanks, the H100i has performed well in my current rig so I am glad I don't have to find another cooler.

As far as mobos go, I can either look for a 1150 or use this opportunity to upgrade to a Skylake chip.

Than no need to change it to anything else. There are many 250D users with H100i in their rigs (can check out thread's gallery), even the first post in this thread shows it installed in the case.
Really up to you. Going from i5 4670k to 6600K wont give you that much of a difference yet you will have to get MB, RAM, CPU, a lot more money than just the MB.

Hi guys,

I've been doing a lot of planing and I would like to able to become a part of this club smile.gif
Lots of good stuff in this thread and easy to get confused when it comes to what fits smile.gif
But thats one of the good things about 250D, easy would be borring.

I live in Denmark, and the only available AIO 240mm Corsair CPU cooler is h100i GTX. Which doesn't fit the 250D without some kind of compromising mod.

I could air cool the CPU. Noctua's er pretty good. But I like the AIO water cooler approach.

Any suggestions?

I am planing to get a 4690K on a Z97 chipset.

Thread Starter 
watercooling on this cpu wont do good. it's known to have big temps and silly AIO cooler is just not good enough, go either custom loop or go air.

if you plan on oc of cpu i will tell you straight, max will be 4.4ghz oc which is not great considering that stock turbo is 3.8ghz and the temps will be high, imo go for some low profile rams and nice air cooler, there are some small ones that will do good.

another note, i'd go for new chipset on your place, went with 1150 now and now im trying to sell it off to build on skylake :C

good low profile cpu cooler:

ps. all info about i5-4690k are brought from my personal experience and few other people who also used it.

I really don't need the newest hardware. The i5 4690K and Z97 is plenty power and unless I've missed something, the best value for the money. Thats why I landed on this outdated hardware. I can't see what skylake brings. Overclocking isn't why I choose it. Availability and value for money is the key factors.

I've seen only good things about the 4690K and nothing about it being hotter than average.
All the suggestions I've found in this thread and else were, rates AIO over air cooling anytime when its in a 250D.

I like the 250D and it has is limits and now I can't get the CPU cooler, that case was designed around.
