I will be front mounting it as an intake and having the 2 included fans as exhausts.

i think its been done , not sure on this forum but only 2/3 screws held the rad/fans in place. of that the top fan was just sandwiched between the rad and the case

yeh, definitely seen it done just wondered what people found the easiest. I saw one suggesting the Rad and bottoms fans were held with 2 screws and the top fan was screwed in but not through to the rad. My concern with doing it that way was bending the screws or radiator screw holes at the bottom. If its just the screw holes dont line up I will probably just drill one to secure the top.

I guess most people buy the GTX now its the newer version and is a little smaller.

Because its where I envisage most of the problems im going to do that in the case tonight so ill post with an update for anyone else who has difficulty in the future.

Update everyone. Not quite finished last night but here is some pics, ill not show you the mess left behind!






The radiator and fans were easy to install actually. A little fiddly but I got 6 out of 8 screws in and its held pretty tight so im not worried about that.

The only issue I have is that I only have 2 USB 2 headers on the Mobo and I need 3. 1 for the case stuff, 1 for the cooler for Corsair LINK and one for the NZXT Hue +.

I have a spare USB3 header im not using so I guess buying an adaptor is the best way to go? Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

" 1 for the case stuff" - im pretty sure the case is USB 3.0 and will just plug into the Internal USB 3 on the board, leaving the two USB2 internals for your Hue and Corsair..... or is the other case stuff another controller that uses USB 2?
Could always link and external usb to internal if needs be ?

The Power Switch, HDD light and that go to a USB 2 header, the USB 3 ports go to 1 of the 2 available USB 3 headers. So thats 1 USB 2 header used.

The other is used by the Corsair.

I have seen for a few quid you can pick up a cable that converts a spare USB 3 header to USB 2 which should work and I do have a spare on the Mobo at the moment. I was just wondering if there is any easier way round than that.

You've got the z170 Carbon right??

The Power switch etc connects to JFP1
whilst your Corsair and NZXT hook up to JUSB1/2

Page 25/ 6 in the manual. Hope this helps

Both USB are to the left of the bottom sata express connectors and the JFP1 is right bang in the middle***
if i've guessed the board

I might have cocked that up, I will take a look when I get home!

Thanks,

no probs, you'll see the last pin is in a different location which shows the diff between the two connection points smile.gif

Yeh, I have definitely connected all of them to the bottom USB header on the Mobo. Sorted that and its now alive! smile.gif

Originally had the CPU warning light on but realised one of the power cables wasnt properly connected. Windows 10 Pro now installed and sorting all the drivers out tonight. Thanks for your help! thumb.gif



For anyone else who has concerns about the H110i GT fitting in the S340 case, dont worry. All I did was fit the screws loosely but all the way into the radiator starting from the middle where the 2 fans meet. Some of the screws wont be perfectly straight and the fans are ever so slightly angled but its definitely secured and doesn't move at all when picking up and moving the case. I will get some photos of the screws I have in and post them for anyone who may have that problem in the future. I have the fans in front of the radiator but to be fair with the included dust filter you could probably make the install easier on your self by having the fans pull air through the rad instead. You will trade some performance most likely as it will be less capable of pulling air in but the install will definitely be easier.

Next steps are checking the temps and overclocking then long term are probably a better PSU and some white sleeved cables and even upgrading to an i7 6700k eventually. Im probably going to go for a safe OC on the CPU at 4.6Ghz and try and get the RAM to 2600 ish. Im going to the leave the GPU for now and see how it runs and if I need to.

Any questions let me know!

Used six screws without a problem and all aligned, just the top holes didn't.
