Corsair Obsidian 250D Club - Page 54

post #531 of 3052
heres the view from the top in mine. Its an H75 but the idea is the same. Maybe Torvi can post some pics of his rig.

Any pictures are better than no pictures at all, right? biggrin.gif

If you do not mind my asking; what made you go with the 75 over the 90 or 100/i? Do you find the amount of air being drawn from the front to be sufficient? It looks like you have space, would you consider adding a second fan for a push + pull system?
post #533 of 3052
I chose the H75 over the H100i due to my friends dislike of the corsair link software, the quietness of the H75, the use of asetek pump on the H75 vs the others, and the revised "newer" technology. From the reviews I've read the H75 H90 an H100i are all within a few degrees of performance of each other with the H75 in the middle. I found that surprising given the larger surface area of the other 2. I also liked the fact that I could place it in all 3 fan locations, where as the others have no flexibility. As far as push pull goes, I found a review of the H75 that tested both single fan and push pull, as the H75 does come with 2 fans, the performance was the same, but the noise of the pull fan made the setup a couple decibels louder. Now going without the stock fans and using the scythe glide stream, which does almost 110CFM and has slightly better static pressure, the noise under full load is louder than the corsair fans but quieter at idle. There is however a 3-5C difference in temps with the front open vs closed. I run with the cover off for now. I also find the dust filters increase the noise slightly or changes the pitch regardless of front or side. I would like to mod the case cover to accommodate for the reduced air flow reflected in the temps by either cutting a hole or even better have the front open under load via an actuator. Much like a spoiler on some of the supercars. Not sure i want to do that heavy of a mod yet, so the cover stays off for now. My pc is in my entertainment center so fresh air in the front helps as the hot air likes to stay in there.

There goes that theory. Hmmm, anything in the event logs? Maybe a device isnt sleeping properly and causing a BSOD after it enters sleep, which sounds weird as it is. Look for errors and warnings in the event log in applications and system around the time you put it to sleep.

My last parts should arrive next week, so another quick question before I start building.
With the h100i did you all connect the fans to the block or to the Mobo cpu header?

I've been reading really mixed reviews about the Corsair Link, so if anyone could point out advantages/disadvantages, that would be nice.
Mobo header would be controlled by Fan Expert. And I'd need a PWM fan splitter for the Impact, since it only has 1 PWM header, right? or what would be the result of putting a PWM on a 4-pin (non-PWM) connector?

Does anyone have or know someone with the MSI GTX 780Ti Gaming 3G in combination with the Obsidian 250D?

The specifications list a height of 129mm, but I am not sure if this includes the PCI-E connectors.

For questions like these I like to look through other people's builds on PC Part Picker. I found this build using an MSI R9 270X which is also 129mm (http://us.msi.com/product/vga/R9_270X_GAMING_2G.html#specification) and it looks like it fits fine in this guy's build: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/NPK

I put them on my IMPACT headers. If I am to install software to control my fans it may as well be AI Suite III as it does so much more than just control the fans.

True that. just need a PWM splitter right? I guess the H100i connector is specific to the block?
