Now, water cooling normally requires to refill the liquid eventually, won't these coolers eventually need to have their liquid refilled as well?
These are a sealed system so there is no way for the liquid to evaporate from it so no need to refill.

Apart from the DIY options (cool air in from the front), has anyone worked ot an ideal setup for the H70 (or H50) with the CM 690ii?

I'm staring building my first decent PC as soon as I finish typing this. It's an i7-930, inside a CM 690ii Advanced with the Corsair H70.

I've searched the forum and this thread and reached a couple of conclusions:
1: I'll want to swap the standard corsair fans for something the the Scythe GTs, or I may go for some Silverstone FM123s (I've seen more about them in the UK than the US, but they have good static pressure).
2: How I set up the fans on the CM 690ii is crucial.

It's this second point I'd like to ask a question on (asking here because using the H70 affects case airflow choice).
Standard recommendations:
Front, Bottom & Side as In take
Top & Rear as Out take
However, that's 5 fans in, and 3 out. It does seem that this configuration would have cool air entering from the top side fan, and immediately leaving through the back fan, and adjacent top fan. This would be good if the H70 was in one of those positions, but the adjacent extraction fan would still be taking some of the nice cool air.

I'm really at a loss as to the best setup, and any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks
I have used the FM123's and can verify they do have some great pressure. So far, they are the strongest fans I have found though I'm currently using some Silverstone Air Penetrators that don't do quite as well but aren't quite as loud either. One tip I have for you if you get the 123's is to have a couple jumpers around in case you don't want to use the included fan controller. You will need to place a jumper on the connector for the controller or the fans won't run(thought mine were DOA at first).

As far as placement goes....the H70 has noticeably shorter hoses than the H50(I wasn't able to mount my H70 quite as securely or as near the front for front intake as I was my H50) so keep that in mind when you're thinking about placement. You will most likely see very little difference(1c~3c max), if any, from moving the radiator around, though I suppose you may hear one or two people tell of it making more of an impact, so I would just focus more on streamlining your case's airflow.
I don't have any personal experience with that case but it looks like it has pretty good flow so long as you're managing the cables well. Just keep in mind hot air rises and fighting nature only shortens the life of your components. =)
If you're mounting it on bottom(not sure the H70 will reach without a few shrouds) I would definitely consider using a filter in front of the fan since that's going to see the most dust out of any of the mounting positions. Personally I like front as it keeps my hoses closer to being level and it's got to be easier on the pump, though I'm sure it's not that big of a deal. What did you mean by this a do it yourself option?

A poor video of adding the Dye,

As you can see the bottow pipe coming off the Res is a little long so i will be re-routing it and cutting it down abit.

Better photo's tomorrow, more Dye and adding the Ultra Kaze 3000 back as a push.

What do you guys think?
Wouldn't it have been better to put the reservoir on the outside of the case? Wouldn't the water temps be higher while keeping the it inside the case?

I recently bought the H70 and installed in on my newly built gaming rig. After 30 minutes or so of being installed I started to hear a noise. It sounded similar to when a cable is slightly making contact with a case fan or something. I quickly opened the side of the PC case and realized it was the pump making the noise. At one point I put the case to lay on its side for a while and upon placing it back up the noise went away for about a minute and then came back to haunt me ever since.

I keep reading the water pump is supposed to be silent or near silent. I read people have complained about fan noise, but not the pump noise. Is this product defective? Is there a fix or should I RMA? It's keeping my CPU cool, but the noise is loud, louder than the fans in fact.

It sounds like a hair cutting machine.

Sounds like there is some air in the line, not a problem with the pump

agreed, try tapping on the hoses

A lot of people reported hearing that "clicking" noise coming from their pump (mine went away after awhile). Try like the others said and if it still bothers you then maybe it's time for RMA.

Might wanna post your problem over in Corsair's support forum so that they're aware of your situation and maybe they can help expedite the RMA process. Good luck.

Thanks, guys. I'll see if tapping the hoses and maybe a different position works. If it doesn't work then hopefully it goes away before tomorrow, or I'll RMA it.

Yes, that's what I was hoping for, but...
I don't want the exhausts on the top stealing air from the H70 and
I don't want air going from the GC into the H70.

You should always have more air going in the case then out thus creating a positive pressure case so air is pushed out all the little cracks and crevices.
Good point, thanks.

Thanks - they do appear to be great fans for radiators. Perhaps only because they are less well known, they are not the favourite fan for H50/H70 users on the Corsair forum - there are so many recommendations for the Scythe Gentle Typhoons that it would feel risky to get anything else. It's possible that the Silverstones could be better, but I am sure that the Scythes would be a good choice.

With all the recommendations for both the H70 and CM 690ii adv, I was surprised that there's actually only one place (rear, top) it will fit (without modding).

That's my problem. Keeping good streamlined airflow would (I imagine) mean air in at the bottom/front, past the hot GC, and into the H70, thus using (some) hot air to cool the cpu.

There are some wonderful DIY ducting (boxing out of clear perspex) examples - mounting an H50 at the top, front, as exhaust, and having cool air sucked in through the spare 5.25" drive bays and fed to the H50. That's more than I could easily do.

Thanks for the suggestions, I appreciate it

I have some dry ice and I was wondering what the best method to place it on the radiator would be?
