My CPU is at stock, why benchmark? I really would like to overclock it but I have no clue how frown.gif

with those ambients you wont see much lower temps than what youre getting. well the benchmarking was so you could push your cpu and see that the fans do make a difference under load at much higher temps. Overclocking isnt too hard but just be careful and take it easy whilst being patient and you'll be fine, you have more than adequate cooling so youre in a good starting place. Heres a few guides i could rustle up some that even use your Motherboard smile.gif :

i have the fan pulling air through the rad as exhaust, should i kept it that way? its a corsair SP120 and i read that static pressure fan like that needs to be in push. The way i have it now is rad facing the CPU while fan exhausts.

my case fans are one intake front, and one top exhaust. the rear is the corsair h60 and i could either have it exhaust or intake (corsair recommends intake i think).

I generally ignore Corsair instructions and do what works best. Usually if you're using one fan I would recommend doing push instead of pull. SP fans are designed to do this. If you have the room to add a second fan, push and pull is better. I don't intake from the back of my case intake is bottom and front because heat always rises so cooler air is lower.

I run just pull and have for a long time. I tested it versus push and it was pretty much the same. Pull makes it easier to clean because the dust is not between the fan and the rad.

WOW, thank you! That helped me alot. Easy guides without wall of texts and easy to understand.

I am currently running at 4 Ghz stable according to those two prime tests. Only need to do a overnight test and then I'll try 4,3 to beat the +1 Ghz biggrin.gif

Temps are under 50°C btw. running on quiet mode with ambient temps of 22,2 °C when running 100% with prime

Nice man thats great to hear biggrin.gif

Its exactly what this community is about tongue.gif. Nice temps too The h100i does a pretty good job for an AIO cooler.

Hello everyone. First post here with a couple questions.

I recently purchased 2 H100i and 2 H110 coolers while they were on sale. I plan to use 1 for my CPU and 1 for my GPU with a special bracket. I just need to decide which model to keep. Either will fit in my Air 540 case with no problems, so no concern there.

The H110 has a pump that is more universally accepted by GPU brackets, but comes with what I believe to be under par fans.

The H100i has a chunkier pump that I can use with only 1 GPU bracket type, and can be fitted with existing SP120 fans for aesthetics (yes, I do care about that to some degree).

With that said, I know Corsair is set to release SP140 fans in the future, which will be great for the H110. Also, the H105 was recently announced having the round pump (more universal for GPU) and a 240mm radiator.

So, here's my dilemma:

- Keep the H100i with less GPU bracket compatibility, but with support for fans I already have and can use NOW.
- Keep the H110 with more GPU bracket compatibility, but with an unknown fan future (SP140 specs haven't been released yet).
- Wait for the H105 with more GPU bracket compatibility, AND with support for fans I already have and can use NOW, but no clue when it will be available and if I can secure one before it sells out.

What would you do?

Furthermore, I've seen that the H105 uses a newer ceramic pump. What's the story on this, and should it make any difference in my decision vs. the H110 and its pump?

Lastly, I noticed the tubing is different between the H100i and H110. Any major differences there that could affect my decision?

Edit: I'm sort of OCD when it comes to consistency, so I want to keep both H100i coolers, or both H110 coolers, or order 2 H105 coolers.

Thanks!

^ Honestly the 540 Air is an awesome case so I could see having a number of options available. Personally I would avoid the H105 as you already have the H110 which is a proven cooler. You probably don't know about the H55 vs H60 debates back in the day. Let's just say there's a reason the H55 sells cheap just about everywhere. I would use the H110s and I'm sure Corsair will come out with a SP140 with the rings, they listen to customers. Good luck with your build and post some pics when you're done.

Thanks for the info and opinion. thumb.gif

Are you implying the H55 isn't so good compared to the H60 from the past debates? If so, I'm confused because the H55 has the same type of pump as the H110 you recommend.

The two main things keeping me considering the H105 are the existing SP120 fans I already own and the mention of ceramic pump, if it makes any kind of difference. And the looks of the H105 certainly don't hurt it! biggrin.gif

The two main things making me want to keep the H110's are the proven track record, and knowing I can go with push/pull in my case. The H105's radiator may be too thick to go push/pull up top.

No the H55 was nowhere as good as H60, in fact the H60 was even redesigned 2013. The block on the H110 isn't the same as H55, more like a H70. I think copper is better than the ceramic but that's just opinion. Stay strong and go with the H110s I'm sure Corsair is right around the corner with SP140 just like the SP120s magically have a PWM version now.
