What fans do you replace on the case and which ones to buy instead?
I live in England so a retailer from there would be nice.
I've sat here for two hours going through post after post looking at all the gorgeous rigs and I'm so jealous!!
I can't wait until next week when I'ts mostly all delivered.
I've seen some nice sleeving on here( the white and blue braided is really nice but expensive. Is it really 30 dollars for one cable? More money than sense!! But i want em lol!
Anyway this is my first of many posts and nice ta meet ya'll cool.gif

Actually, it is a price issue for the most part. PWM fans can cost 30% to 100% more than the standard equivalent fan. This doesn't sound like much, but it can be the difference between selling a case for $99 or selling it for $119. And that $20 may not sound like much, but most people wouldn't pay more for the exact same chassis just because it has PWM fans. Heck, most people who buy cases don't know the difference between a PWM fan and a standard fan. And anybody that would care about PWM fans would likely be replacing the fans with their own so it's kind of a moot point.

You guys have to remember that people as knowledgeable as you are 1% (at best) of the possible market. Think about it. How many friends do you have that look to you for computer advice? 5? 10? 50? When you count family members into that, how high does it go?

I mean, the reason I joined forums back in the 90s was to talk to people who knew more than I did about things because none of my friends cared about the difference between the BX and HX chipset or 3Dfx vs. NVIDIA. Wow, I'm old.

But my point is that it's easy for us to talk to one another and just assume that everybody thinks like we do. When I see a product from a competitor my first thoughts go to "What's cool about this?" and then "What's not cool about this?" and I make a mental checklist. "Like the looks, stupid decision on the power button, dust filters look good, radiator compatibility sucks, cable routing sucks..." stuff like that. I'm sure you guys do the same thing. Most people who buy a case are buying for two reasons: price and appearance. The slightly more technical care a bit about cooling. A step more technical and you get to people who care about noise and expansion. And then eventually you get to us, where we'll have 12 page long discussions about door latches on the side panel or PWM vs standard fans. biggrin.gif

But I wouldn't have it any other way. At least this way I know that somebody cares about the little details.

I know this is an old post but im reading this thread from front to back. I think this post was very well put. I find Corsair Reps in other forums I visit and I have to say they are doing a lot to appeal to everyone but we know thats impossible. Also you ain't that old man because I remember all the HX BX 3dfx etc as well and im only 33.. young pup!

Even while I was reading that post I was looking at PWM fans that were the same price or less than a lot of the 3 pin fans out there. Some manufacturers charge the same for PWM versions, and switching fan types to PWM is not going to cost 30 to 50% more if you don't want it to. I believe that post was in response to one of my posts and I still don't agree with the portion about PWM fans. Besides, people who don't know what a PWM fan is likely won't be spending over $150 on an enthusiast case.

I like it too smile.gif Low, Hi, Low, Hi, Lo, Hi...ok leaving it on low now.

You cannot fit an H100 in this case push/pull without modding. I know, I've tried. What it comes down to is the H100 (and H80) have HUGE pump/blocks. When I test fit push/pull it looked like it was going to fit. All my board components cleared without issue. Then I held up the block and realized...there's no way. The block is just too big to squeeze under the bottom set of fans.

Is it possible it use 4 120mm fans in a push/pull design up top without a radiator? I ask this because I see some builds with the stock 200mm still at the top as well as a pair of 120mm fans. So I just curious if replacing the 200mm with a pair of 120mm fans would work with another pair on top.

I hope I am making sense if not give me a break it is still really early here. sleepsmiley02.gif

You betcha. You'll need some long screws and nuts though. They will have to pass through two fans and the case, so about 55 or 60mm long.

I can't reach the screw holes from the inside as the 200mm fan is here... And even if I pull off the 200mm fan and mount it again after having installed my two other fans, it's impossible (or it seems, at least) as there is not even 1mm thick left to work...

I might be the thick one here because I just don't understand the problem you're having.

Corsair has provided you some black fan screws with heads that are so thin they can't possibly interfere with anything.

You remove the inside 200mm fan, mount the 120mm fans in the top fan compartment and put the screws in from the bottom, inside the case. The heads on the screws are so thin they should almost be flush. Now remount your 200mm fan.

I don't understand the last sentence "as there is not even 1mm thick left to work"?

1mm thick what? The interior 200mm fan should fit back in exactly the same way it was before you started. Since the 120mm fans are actually in the upper fan compartment and not "inside" the case, I fail to see how they are causing a problem remounting the 200mm fan.

Is there any reason no one is cutting away the grills on teh stock case? I have always done this to create more airflow and less noise. That front grill would be very easy to cut away and should increase the airflow. Thoughts?

I did that when I added in the 200mm radiator to the front of mine. I dont wanna cut the top mesh out because if I decide to take out the radiator, I would like to mount my fans on the inside and have that open area up top to store stuff in.

But it does make a difference. A lot of restriction there.

Forgive me guys, I know this being a corsair case it's probably been discussed, but this thread is huuuge.....can this fit an H100 push/pull? Thank you biggrin.gif btw, this is with the top mesh panel on smile.gif

Yeah, I was fooling around with it tonight but you can't fit a push pull. The only way is doing it inside like this vid: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pxJ6JECQuQ[/ame]
Don't really want to do that though. At this point I'm thinking of buying some Noisblockers

For a push config and hoping that if I turn up on high they wont sound loud. I see people saying they sound like the corsair on idle while the NB's are running on high. People tend to exaggerate though.

Oops, sorry about that. Great vid though...None of the cool new cases I like will fit the H100 frown.gif Come on corsair, let's see something besides the monstrous bricks you call full towers that can hold a H100.

That's what I thought. I can't dremel it out becuase I don't want to take the PC apart but the parts connecting it are thin enough to use a pair of cutters to snip it away. I think this restriction is whats causing a lot of that whistle noise some are getting.
