Edit:

Hey guys, just a few questions.
-Darylrese says it's possible to mount the h100i inside the case with fans attached without modding, but If I look at his picture, there aren't any screwholes for the middle screw and the back or can they fit through the little holes?

-If I leave my fans on top of the case, I'm thinking of something to not have to put the to grill on there, I like it without, but the fans are intake and more dust wil get in. Any solutions? Fan guards? sound dampening material around the fans to cover the holes?

- The 5,25" bays, so say I want to cover them up with something like this how can I cut it without any special tools? My dad has some tools, but nothing special.
Could I make a panel to put on the floor of the case too with this?

- What size tubing are needed if I want to put them over the h100i tubes?

You can mount the H100 inside the case, and the fans up top in pull/exhaust. The difference between push and pull in this application is negligible.

Looking here, it seems stock is all exhaust except the front, but with an H100 up top, that should be intake

Great point smile.gif I'll be on LGA1150 with an i7 4770.
haha, have to be honest, the fan colour didn't look great, but happy if I'm able to replace it next year!

Thanks for your help mate, rep to you!

You can make the top exhaust or intake. The difference is only a couple of degrees. Intake will provide a slightly cooler cpu but warmer chipset, regulators and possibly video card. If the H100 is exhaust, the cpu will be a couple of degrees warmer, but the chipset, regulators and video cards will be a little cooler.

This can also depend on what type of video card you have. If you have something like a reference card, which exhausts out the back of the case, then you could also make the H100 exhaust. However, if your video card is dumping exhaust inside the case, you may not want your H100 to be exhaust and pull the warm video card exhaust through its rad.

So, you have a couple of things to think about before deciding on intake or exhaust. If you do decide on intake, you might want to look at some dust filters like these:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14346/ffi-88/DEMCiflex_Corsair_600T_Magnetic_Dust_Fan_Filter_Set_-_4_Piece.html

One last trick. If you cut a hole up top big enough to get the pump/block through, you can mount the rad up top and the fans inside. This takes more modding, and you have to be really careful you don't accidentally cut the hoses. I modded mine like that, and a couple of others here have done the same.

You don't need the link. Give it a try, but if it causes you issues purchase a PWM splitter and plug the fans into your motherboard CPU_FAN header. When you purchase the H100i, make sure you get the newer version with the PWM fans. (PWM has 4-pins, not the usual 3-pins).

This will provide your fans with a much larger range of RPM. I am using 1900 RPM Scythe Slipstream PWM fans, and they will run as low as 500 RPM (a little lower than that actually) when I'm web browsing, and up to the full 1900 RPM under heavy load. I think the new Corsair SP PWM fans would be pretty sweet under mobo control. Note, check your motherboard manual. Some motherboards (like mine) have a second CPU_FAN header specifically for newer coolers that have two fans.

I will pass on the Haswell (Redwood Ridge) and wait for the next Falcon Ridge. If you have a couple seconds you should read this Intel's Thunderbolt 2: Everything You Need to Know as Haswell does not have 4K support (Intel's Haswell) and you should take into the equation the the new Apple desktop will come with support for 4K monitors and Sony and ASUS will be releasing 4K (30") monitors this year.

4K monitor, equals bucket loads of drool for me.. drool.gif, of course game content will have to catch up.. and fast.
I will indeed pass on Haswell too, it doesn't seem like any benefit and i even have Sandy Bridge, only differences is lower TDP and possibly a slightly better overclocker. But it ain't worth it for me at least, though i have seen rumors about Broadwell that it might have been pushed to 2015 instead of 2014. Which is a damn shame also read this if you haven't already[Where did Broadwell go leaked intel roadmap shows 2014 Haswell refresh but no Broadwell]

I would hate to wait a whole 2 years to upgrade my architecture, but i guess it's worth the wait, and i don't think i would be buying into the earlier Haswell-E/Refresh, well if that's what it's name is going to be as it also says in the post it might just be that they haven't put the name there yet and it's really Broadwell, since there is also it's successor Skylake. All rumors and speculation for now we'll have to wait and see. sleepysmileyanim.gif

I think I'll save up already for my next build, also need to buy a PS4.

So I really want a backplate on my gpu buuuut they don't sell any for mine. Is there anything I need to look out for if I would make one out of acrylic?

Also yesterday I installed remember me and when I started it at 1440p and everything on high my gpu's started blazing like a turbo jet and after 5 minutes they were already @ 55°C Should I lower the graphics?

It's actually the first time I noticed. I guess my previous games weren't as demanding + it used to be @ 1080p instead of 1440p. Guess I'll have to put the volume higher so I don't hear the jet engines wink.gif

when i had dual card my temps would be in the high 60's,even now im in the high 60's playing far cry 3 on a 1080p....dnt you use evga precision or msi after burner to monitor your cpu/graphic cards when gaming...

Hey guys quick question,

So right now i have a EVGA 660 ti 3gb and evgas step up program allows you to return the card for a new one with 90 days as long as you pay the difference. Since im still under 90 days and the jump to a 770 2gb would only be $70 usd i was wondering if it was worth it.

After watching the trailers at E3 i want to play Battlefield 4 in all its glory to the best i can.

Only thing was the specs say minimum 600w power supply.

I currently have a corsair hx750 and was wondering if that would be enough +

i7-3770k
corsair h60
1dvd drive
1 blu ray drive
1 500gig ssd
1 1tb seagate
32gigs of 1600ram
and 5 fans

Thanks

Yes it would. It's even a overkill for a single gpu build. With a single gpu 550w is enough, even with OC
