Corsair 250D w/ h100i

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
How is everyone running this water cooler with mini-itx setups being that all (if I am wrong correct me please) mini-itx boards have one usb header?

Think I just answered my own question. The 250D only has USB 3.0 on the front panel so it wouldn't need a second USB header. Am I correct on this?

The CM Elite 130 has USB 3.0 and 2.0 on the front panel so it WOULD need a second USB header or the other option would be to not hook up the 2.0 front USB, right?

Thank you.

Take a look in the 250D thread, we have several users with the H100i in the 250D. There are 2 USB ports on the case, but there is one plug that goes on the mobo header.

LOL! I actually used your video on how to get the H100i installed in this case. I was having some issues due to my motherboard to get the H100i in there.

That video was the reason I decided the 250d will be the case for me.

What would be the best option for an 1155 chipset (z77). I keep hearing the Asus is the board to beat. Sadly they are getting hard to come by. I'd like to build a living room rig for parties and bump up to the haswell when I am feeling anti-social smile.gif

depends strongly on your budget, i suppose that you dont really aim into overclocking do you? Altough there is fun thing with i5s on z77s mobos cuz non K and K versions are same price so it's nice to get the K version for the future.

Setting would be:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77N-WIFI Mini ITX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card
Case: Corsair 250D Mini ITX Tower Case
Power Supply: Zalman 550W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
Optical Drive: Pioneer BDR-207MBK Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer

Total: £780.43

You said that you want it as media center and gaming thus Blu-ray is a must have smile.gif

Oh I already have everything. I was planning on stripping down my current rig for the "HTPC."
I do overclock but nothing extreme. My 3570K is running at 4.4ghz and temps stay around 60-65 C while running prime. I am pretty sure I am limited by my MSI z77-G43 mobo(or however the model number works, its a G43)
