Traditionally, it's frowned upon to multiple post. That goes for just about every forum I frequent.

TL;DR:

Push/pull = inside case > Fan > rad > fan > fan mount > outside of case
One fan only = Inside case > fan > rad > fan mount > outside case

Also you have SLI titans. They're so beautiful!

Most fans (not all fans) will have two arrows on one side. One points in the direction of airflow, and the other points in the direction of blade rotation.

The AP15 is one of the best fans you can get for quiet/performance. Another one of the top fans is Yate Loons if you see them around.

I doubt it has anything to do with the cooler. I would remove the card, reboot the pc, shut it down and reinstall the card. If you have video on the main board, you might also want to check in BIOS and make sure it's shut off, or at least set to detect a PCI graphics card first.

Just took a look at my TIM spread to see if I could bring down prime 95 loads below 70c (max core was 72/73c).
Turns out I was too conservative in my re-application and only had ~55% of the surface covered...
Temps are now down to 65c max, woop!

EDIT: Lol I'm just going to leave this here. Ambient of 21c.

Isn't it the industry standard that, unless stated on the packaging for marketing material, the fans will always push the air 'back' towards the sticker on the rear?
I hope I haven't been wrong all this time.

That's the standard as far as I know but more and more fan's have stickers on both sides. While most fans do have the arrows on them the stock H100i fans, and I'm guessing H80i fans, don't. Better to say they blow towards the motor/support arms side.

Yeah that was the first thing I tried, thanks for your suggestion though. Looking at the LGA on my board I can see some pins in the bottom left are a bit bent. Could that be causing the PCIE slot to fail? Could I have over tightened the the H55 causing it to crush pins?

Hey guys smile.gif

I've been running an H80i now for about 2 weeks or so. Overall I am pleased with it's performance; it certainly holds it's own against mid-high end air cooling and is of course much easier to manage.

The only real criticisms I have are that: (1) the wiring for the SATA/3-pin does seem a little cheap. I don't see it being an issue, but, I think they could do better.; and (2) I really wish they'd have used threaded inserts on the radiator. It seems like there could be a durability issue there for someone that might need or want to remount/change fans etc. often.

In any case, now I guess we'll see how it holds up over time.

post #22408 of 28303
Just got an H80i, finally caved since I know my case couldn't fit any bigger AIO without some cutting/modding. (Seriously wanted a Swiftech H220) Maybe someday I'll actually invest in a better case with lots of space. But I've had other Corsair AIO's, like the H50 and H70, so I'm familiar with them at least.

Anyways, this 2500k is holding up well at 4.8GHz, max temps with Prime95 was around 72-74c. (Idles 34-35c on quiet mode) The fans definitely get loud, but expected that on full load. When not gaming and just chilling out browsing, it's very quiet. Cosair Link is nice to have no doubt, makes controlling the fans super easy.


EDIT: Upgrading to an H100i soon, so this post is irrelevant now.

So pulled my unit down last night to re-apply some arctic silver 5 to the processor and since I have a reservoir modded into my H80 i decided to take a look at the waterflow characteristics through this 1/4" id x 3/8" od tubing.

I'm very disappointed to say the least. There's barely a trickle coming out of this thing. I was concerned that perhaps my pump was going bad and tore the unit down to check for any clogging and nothing was found anywhere. Turned to youtube and sure enough found a video labeled "H100 flow" that showed the same trickle I had from mine. I'd link the video direct but can't access Youtube at work. I realize now that the pump in this thing is the letdown by far, not sure if the H80i/H100i have a better pump but I sincerely hope so. Looking to sell this off and move to a real cold plate/radiator setup now.

From all of the legit reviews I have seen the new pumps are far better.
