Intend to do only minor OC to the GPU 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?

You don't need better CPU cooler if you are overclocking GPU.

Don't know about fitting on that motherboard.

Sorry my bad. I am referring to CPU not GPU.

well h100i is by all means great cooler, owning it atm, very happy with how it works.

After some temp watching with my i5-4670k on 4.2 i see max 61 C on full load with NO MATTER HOW FAST FANS ARE. Simply how i checked it, ran my fans at 1k rpm then 1,2k rpm and 1,5k rpm and there was exactly 0 DIFFERENCE so before you will be getting low noise fans just work things out with those you have now, you simply dont need them, you can run fans at 1k and they are barely hearable, After setting them on it i actually hear my idle gpu fans more than h100i fans on full cpu load lol smile.gif

The only way to make it work would be to hang a couple fans on the outside of the case.
Kind of like this but on the other side of the case.

if i were to OC i5-4670k to 4.2 do i need the H100i or the Noctua NH-L9i 95mm is sufficient?

jhon i would suggest you taking some single 120mm closed loop cooler, this case is asking for watercooling loops (multiple) but if you feel your wallet wont make it, go for noctuna but dont expect too big performance smile.gif

Quick question: I see some of the people built their radiator in with the Corsair fans facing towards the mobo with the unprotected side forward, other with the protected side of the fans facing the mobo. If unprotected side is forward then air is being sucked out of the case and through the radiator, and if protected side forward (towards mobo) then air is being pulled through the radiator into the case.

Which way is best for temperatura and having positive pressure in the case if I would only have the front fan working as well? (as it is now, my radiator fans on the H100 are unprotected side towards the mobo).

TIA!

ive got them the same way as you do and it's really the only way to do it to be honest. If you got a nice gpu mounted in and fans pulling air out of case thru the heatsink then while gaming h100i fans will be catching heated up air from your gpu which will lead to slight decrease of performance.

With 140 mm fan premounted in front of case you get steady burst of all the air to the rear, you can easily see it by placing some paper behind the rear air condition panel (i have a paper attached to one of my power cables (some manufacturers infos) and it was about 10 cm behind the case and i was still able to see it moving (obviously because of the air that is thrown out of case) So worry not, this setup is best we all can have in small case like 250d and it's more than engouh to be honest smile.gif
