Radiator Replacement, Corsair Hydro Series H110i GT Extreme (or buy new?) - Page 2

post #11 of 13

Thanks to all for helping me on this. I had the Corsair mounted on the "roof" of the case, worked great from there. I will try the EK cooler, and see how it performs. Exciting actually. I will keep the Corsair as a pet project, and see if I can change the radiator. No harm in doing that, as I have already decided to retire it. But at least, now I know where to start.

Thanks once again, I very much appreciate it.

Sitting inside it, or hanging below it? Your first post made it sound like it was hanging from underneath it. The Luxe actually has about 31mm usable inside the roof (between the mounting surface & the removable top vent/filter. If only your fans were coming loose, it wouldn't help, but if your actual radiator was falling (as I read to be the case), moving it into the roof will at least make it secure until you actually receive your replacement, which could take a few days, depending on where you bought it from.

Ah yes, I see, that was a bit unclear. The Corsair was mounted underneath the top "roof" with fans above the "roof" holding the radiator in place, and another set of fans was mounted directly to the bottom side of the radiator (push/pull). The problem with hanging, was because I could only put a few screws in to hold it up. The weight of the radiator with the fans etc. and the missing screws - as they could not get a firm grip - made gaps between the case and the radiator. The cooling effect was thus less because the air was blowing out in all directions instead of going through the radiator. I actually tried what you suggest, but could not see to make it fit with the fans. The tubes would interfere with the fans, making it impossible to have all fans mounted. Push/pull was not possible. I even tried with bigger (thicker) screws, but they could not get a firm hold, actually just making it worse. My solution was to secure it with straps to prevent it from falling on to the hardware inside. Bad solution I know, but it worked - at least until the replacement arrives in a few days I hope. Sorry about the misunderstanding.
