Can't get push/pull configuration because of the case 600T. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Awesome case eh? Actually, the problem is that the newer main boards like to have the RAM mounted up so high. I was using the same case and cooler with a Core 2 Quad CPU and I did get push/pull working (although I had to do a mod). Then I purchased a new i5 main board and I could no longer use push pull because of the position of the memory. I considered trimming a fan, but I would have likely had to trim the blades too, which would introduce more noise and could have hindered the airflow, so I didn't bother. Still getting great temps with just two fans.

There is a way you can do it if you're interested. It involves offsetting the rad slightly toward the outside of the case while leaving the top fans in their correct position. If you're interested in that, just go into the Graphite thread and ask about it.

You might want to consider removing your top hard drive cage since you're not using it and it blocks a lot of airflow. Also, maybe you should consider moving the cables around behind the motherboard so you can't see the cables through the square hole. Another little tip, if you're interested, is that you can colour the ends of the cables plugging into your mobo black. Some people like to buy sleeved extension kits, but I just used a black permanent marker to colour all those little wires black. Another guy used some black dye and a little paint brush and also turned them all black. That was all before I bought the Corsair AX750 psu which has all black cables.

I need to ask you guys a question, I will be installing my H100 on the top part of my case with a push pull config (NZXT Phantom Case that has 2 x200mm top fans) and in some of the installations I have seen in this forum, some folks have the water tubes towards the front of the case while others have it towards the back, does it matter which way I install it? I can't quite remember if I saw it on some forum or I imagined it, but I think I read that you should install the rad with the tubes in a certain way (towards the front or back..don't remember) since it helps with the water flow and also you won't get as much air in the system.
Can someone please confirm this before I install my H100?

It doesn't matter if the hoses are toward the front or the back. Which ever way you think looks the best if it will fit both ways. The way the H100 mounts up top, the tubes come out the bottom which is all you really have to worry about.

I don't understand your question. Which "side" are you referring to? Push pull is one fan on each side, one blowing into the rad, and the other "sucking" out of the rad. Two fans for a 120 rad, four fans for a 240 rad.

Note that the H100 is so thin that adding push/pull over just push or pull doesn't make much difference. Corsair said they tested it on a bench (no case) and didn't get any difference. Still, I would prefer push/pull if I could achieve it without having to offset the H100 rad in my 600T case.

Thanks for your useful advice/recommendation bro. May leave it as it is and may use marker to make the cable into black colour. wink.gif

What I mean is half one side pushing and half the other pulling.

thats an interesting idea worth trying , the problem with havig a rad as an intake is usually dust but on the other hand half of you rad would be exhausting hot air from the case and half would be taking fresh air in , granted it wont be that cool after going through the rad , short answer is try it and post your results , it wont break anything we guarantee that .

For air cooling I know having two 120 fans like that is pretty optimum actually. The front would be intake, putting "presumably" cold air from outside the case in front of the CPU fans, pushing through heatsink, then out rear exhaust or rear top exhaust right there.
I think I saw that on here a year ago or so when I was still air cooling...

I guess i can post my rig in here.


specs
case: Cooler Master Cosmos II Ultra Tower
Gpu: Sapphire Radeon HD7970 3GB
Gpu: XFX Radeon HD7970 3gb
Cpu: i7-3930k @4400MHz
cpu cooler: Corsair h100 with noctua fans
PSU: Corsair 1000W
HDDs: 7
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5, Socket-2011
fans total: 15

I am kinda unsure if I've gotten an good mount or not, or if my temperatures are good. Besides that i am pretty happy with my h100.
