H100i Corsair Link Groups

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all,
So I just have a question on setting up my groups using Corsair Link and the H100i.

Here is my set up.
Corsair Vengeance C70 2-Intake Front (Connected with Y-Cable to CPU Pump), 2 Intake side panel, 1 Exhaust Back Panel
H100i Top Mount Exhaust
FX 9370 CPU
Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 Motherboard.

My question is, should I put the H100i Fans in a group on the CPU?

I messed around with it last night and the fans immediatly kicked up in RPMs.

I'm new to the whole liquid cooling/Corsair Link, so any help is appreciated.

I would recommend that you put the fans under H100i group which is also coolant temp. It is optimal that you have the fan's rpm react to the coolant temp rather than CPU temp. Coolant is the agent that dissipates heat from your CPU, it would only make sense if your fan curve is based on it, and the Coolant temperature change is gradual and more steady as oppose to CPU temp in which the change is instantaneous.

Link2 gives you 3 fan speed preset curves and you can make a custom curve. 90% of the time my rad fans on the 100i run at or just under 1k rpm, it's very quiet.

What would be a good group for the 2 front intakes on the case?

And with the radiator being top mounted do you recommend that it be exhaust or intake?

I don't think you can run the "case" fans with the link2 software.

You well find both intake and exhaust setups with top mounted rads. You want to run the coolest air possible thru the rad so many use intake for top mounted rads. If you have really good case air flow and case air is very near ambient you can use exhaust for top mounted rads.

Do you run positive or negative case air? Is the air filtered?

I run positive pressure and all intakes are filtered, this almost totally eliminates dust inside the case. I run exhaust on the top rad as my case air temp is normally only 1-2C above room ambient temp.
