Still contemplating what I'm going to do about the top fan...still contemplating replacing with some alternate fans, but newegg stopped selling the Xigmatek crystal fans in white, and none of the other 120mm white LED fans I've found look that great. May just get some Noctuas as a previous poster mentioned, or something along those lines (non-LED 120mm fans).

What are the opinions on the Corsair H80/H100? I read that the initial self-contained watercooling setups were basically as good as high-quality air coolers, but nowhere near "true" liquid cooling setups...not sure if these are any better, or worth the price (currently running a CM Hyper 212+ with push/pull).

I was running a Megahalem w/ push/pull AP-15s and noticed no difference between that and my H70. I do like the Hydro series coolers because they are small (lot more room in the case) and as efficient. I plan to upgrade to the H100 once it is available.

EDIT: Had planned to do a full WC loop, but am going to put that in my main server instead.

I think they are supposed to be released this week. Have heard a lot of people talking about June 10...but who knows...that could be the ship date to stores...I would like to see a review or 2 before I get mine though....made that mistake with my new Corsair Force 3 SSD....looks like that is a SandForce problem though.

Just put my Corsair Force 3 120GB drive in. Seems to be working well. Slowly getting there with the sleeving. Have a few more cables to sleeve, so much work! Let me know what you guys think. Sorry for the poor photos and excessive use of the flash. Will fix that next time around.

all of the corsair all in one watercoolers will perform better than your CM hyper, however the h50 would only be SLIGHTLY better

the h100 or h70 (not sure about h60) would be pretty good, they will match or beat high end air coolers ( Noctua dh14) and the corsair coolers do look better.

- a custom loop beats everything, but there is a risk of leaking, the hassle, the space, and the cost.


When you say plastic grill, Do you mean the plastic bits that go accross the front/top panels? If so, i am planning on removing those too, - in the name of increasing air flow.
I also cut out the front and rear honeycomb grill - MASSIVELY increased airflow and decreased noise -and you cant even see that they have been removed biggrin.gif

I am planning on mounting a h100 up top, but the fans would need to go through two fan grills, overall very restrictive, going to have to find a way to overcome that - i would cut out some of the top 2 x 200 fan grill but i have a feeling, if i did this, the radiator would pull on the remaining metal and cause it to sagg.
