Corsair H115i placement help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm planning to get H115I in my NZXT 410 phantom mid tower.
Here is my set up.

CPU: Intel I7 4790K 4.5GHz
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H ATX
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB 1866
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SSD
Western Digital BLACK SERIES 1TB HHD
Video Card: GeForce GTX 970 4GB Superclocked
Case: NZXT Phantom 410 Mid tower
Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 750W 80+ Gold
Fans: 3 exhaust fans ( 1 rear, 2 top), 3 intake fans ( 1 side, 1 bottom, 1 front)




What do you think about this mount place?
i'm not a fan of mounting it at the top where exhaust fans are. I want to show off the cooler and don't want hot air getting in the cooler tongue.gif


ps. any other better cooler recommendation under $110?

Thanks!

Adding a solid divider to keep the hot air leaving the rad from just circling around and reentering the rad will yield lower temps.

i was more thinking about 2 thin separated brackets instead of a solid plate bracket.. would that make a difference?
