2 and 3)Yes I'm using the Corsair Link software to control all the fans connected to the H100i.
4)I use this GELID adaptor http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13314/cab-454/Gelid_Solutions_PWM_Fan_Adapter_for_VGA_Cards_CA-PWM-02.html
Using that will allow any PWM fan to be controlled in the same manner as the fan on a stock cooler. NOTE: The video card can only control the speed of PWM fans. All 3-pin fans will run at full speed.

In my 900D build, the radiator fans on my Xfired 290Xs w/G10s and Corsair H105s are run off the video cards. That allows me to run them with custom fan profiles using Afterburner.

Nice!! I think this is the adapter to use so the G10 fan doesn't drive you crazy. Of course it needs to be replaced with a PWM fan.

Thanks for the info that sounds great! I'm more confused than ever though. 200mm fans are not all the same size, I thought maybe the Aero cool silent master I have was oversized but after rechecking it the widest point is exactly 200mm. The specs on the H100 and H100i are exactly the same for the 2 radiators. I wonder if maybe you were able to mount your rad further back? The Mother board I'm using has a standup VRM like the Impact and that dictated my rad position front to back. I physically tried to put my fan in place and it wasn't even close. I'll see if I can find some spec's on your fan, because I would really like a bigger fan in there and the spectra Pro is a great fan. I really appreciate the input on this!

You just have to mount the cooler on the card with the hoses pointing down and mount the radiator upside down so the hoses don't interfere with the drive bay. I tried every other orientation but that was the only way to make it work. The X40 does have slightly longer hoses. Not sure if this would be a help or a hindrance. YMMV


Rebel, do you think an H60 would be enough to keep a 770 cool if used with that G10? I do have an H60 sitting around that I have to send in for RMA or would you recommend going with a H90 instead?

Mike, I'd go with the 250D thumb.gif

The H60 should be plenty. I went with the H90 because I had to order a new one and wanted the largest one I could fit in the case. And it cut my load temps almost in half! Your performance might not be that good with a H60 but it should still be worlds better than stock fans.

Check with the water block manufacturer to see if your specific card is supported. Just because it says it works with a 770 does not mean it will work with YOUR 770.

They are as universal as reference pcb goes. If the card has aftermarket cooler but is marked to use ref pcb design (which most cards are) then there will be no issues putting a ref block on it. If you got classy, lightning, hof or toxic card, you have to buy specialized block.

Sounds like good advice!

Capitan, how do you hold your fan on vram? i suppose using zipties right? Wont they melt on higher temps?

Also what's ur GPU oc with such setup?

I don't think Captain has the water cooler for his GPU yet.

I'm running the Corsair H90 on my GTX 780 Ti. The fan is held on with the NZXT G10 adapter plate that holds the water cooler in place. I added additional aluminum heatsinks to the VRAM that does not come with the G10 kit. Probably overkill, but that's what this site is all about right?
Overclocks...
GPU 1100 MHz
Boost 1152 MHz
Memory 1900 MHz (7600 MHz Effective)

Max temp I've seen on my GPU running Furmark was 43°C. The main limiting factor seems to be the lack of voltage control in the reference card. Even so my 3Dmark 11 score went from X5237 to X6132. Almost a 900 point increase. Not bad if you ask me.

A newbie in OC.

Just purchase the 250D and it was awesome. Now for the buliding part.

Intend to do only minor OC to the CPU with the Maximus. Do i really need the H100i?

Wondering if the Noctua NH-L9i 95mm SSO2 CPU Cooler is sufficient and be able to fit into the motherboard?
