Although I might have messed up the TIM on my corsair h100i during installation because I was wiggling it a bit to get it sit straight on the brackets after it already contacted the CPU surface. Got some Geelid extreme coming in today so I'll be reinstalling it to make sure I don't have a defective h100i.


When i had the H100, i had to shim something in order for the block to contact the cpu..it was just weird design, i yanked that out after 2 days and went with a custom loop....never looked back, if you want to get serious performance, you'll need a big rad with good fans to see results..AIO won't do much to help, mine was loud too, sounded like a sewing machine...i'm also using a mini itx power supply to clear as much space for the rad as possible...to help exhaust out air...

Dang perhaps I don't have good contact. I thought they improved that wit the h100i V2. A friend who has pretty much the same set up is getting 15-20C cooler cpu temp than me which led me to believe I either installed my incorrectly or mine is defective.

And I don't need insane cooling just want to hit a normal number with the OC I'm running. My 6700k is capable of running 4.8ghz at 1.35v stable so it's sad to see that cheap get to 85C during Aida64 stability test with a Corsair H100i.

Does the block move after you install it? mine had a lot of play, if you go to the corsair thread you'll see complaints about this too..i had to add a washer in the back to my motherboard so that the thread would sit flush...ghetto as hell...remove everything, clean off the surface with alcohol, and put thermal paste and try again. Temps seem way too high, even when i was on air i'd never see above 60s

It doesn't move around I don't think. I will double check when I get home. New TIM come in today so I will clean everything off and reinstall it anyway. Good to know about the trick to put washer in the back.

Hey guys I received my case and took some measurements. I have not ordered my watercooling equipment yet and I'm worried about the 70mm clearance at the top of the case between the radiator mount and the tempered glass panel.

An EK Coolstream PE is 38mm thick and a fan is 25mm. I fear the fans won't breathe adequately, any thoughts?

My rad is 45mm thick, and my fans are 25mm thick...so far it is breathing enough...watching my temps and it's been below 40's under gaming sessions...i have every other fans in the case set as intake, to blow air into the case, and the 3 fans as exhaust...see my pic

The top 3 fans are 360mm together, notice how much gape there is to either side...


Finally, i fabricated a bracket and used a PCI riser card to mount the video card vertically, so i'm able to see the liquid flow through it...i'm not done yet, will add LEDs and light up the case..and LEDs to light up the video card, and sleeve the pump cables and cover up the empty PCI slots...let me know what you guys think.


InWin, this is the orientation you guys should've made it...made me work so hard to make it happen smile.gif...please hire me as the next design engineer i have lots of ideas for cases...
Wow I'm impressed and inspired! I wanted to start a new project, hesitated between the inwin 805 and 303. The front end of the 805 looked cool in the beginning, but the more i looked at it it became a bit silly especially with the big logo on the side. The clean looks of the 303 are amazing, but i had my doubts about the cooling options. It felt limited.. but you showed me some imagination and creativity is all you need to make it work. This is by far one of the best looking projects i have seen in quite a while. I'm all about clean looks, and boy it's a clean and mean machine!

I'm going for the all black look, might take a full year so might as well fill the gpu slot with the new vega card if it's worth the money. I know nvidia offers better cards usually, but gsync is stupid biggrin.gif
Going to start off with the case obviously, so i have some time to plan and mod. I'm fckin exited! And really glad i found this topic thumb.gif

Well you don't HAVE to go with an EK Coolstream PE obviously. I am going with a Black Ice Nemesis 360 GTS, top and bottom, as these are good rads for lower fan speeds. It is a smidge under 30mm so will fit good with some room to spare. I don't think you would find the EK rad a problem necessarily, but it is probably not optimal to have so little space between the side panel... but we're only talking about 1cm difference here, so it's hardly going to make 10 degrees difference or anything so extreme lol!

Glad i could give you some ideas, after all, that's what we're all here for right? smile.gif This case has the clean lines that i like, the separate power supply chamber is a huge plus for cable management....and it only costs $89!! No brainer here, the metal is very thick, it was challenging to drill into it, but i took my time and made it work...case is very heavy once loaded, but it's not a bad thing..not like we carry it with us everyday...after i finish the little touches i'll take better pics and post it.

Of course I don't have to have that radiator. But it would make things simpler for me that's why I'm asking if it's appropriate or not. I won't even need tons of cooling with i7 6700K and single GTX 1080 but I like things well done.
