I actually think since I will be able to see the H80 more easily through my window side panel ir would look cool with RED LED fans.

Question is, is the H100 "really" that "significantly" better with cooling performance. I am not talking 2 to 4 degrees difference because that to me is not that significant. Care to give some input?

The only problem I had with the H50-80 was the fact that the push/pull + radiator covered up half of my mobo and I was getting high NB temps. With the H100 being positioned off of the board, I get much better airflow even with the pull setup. My H60 was giving me NB temps of around 35-36 and CPU of 39-41 with no/low load. With the H100 I am idling at about 32 NB and 33-34 CPU. With a price difference of less than 20 bucks, I would definately recommend an H100 with a pull setup if you are going to go this route. It cleans up the case nicely and gives your mobo much more room to breath.

Thanks. But I will stick wwith White Led fans
I don't want to mod it, I like out-of-the-box... and I need some light into that case !

So far I think I'll get the Enermax Apollish UCAP (Louder - more CFM)

or the Enermax Cluster UCC12 (quieter, less CFM although 53 is enough).

May I should just go with the H80 instead?
Well, sorry for repeating myself but I'll quote myself then, to answer your question...

I also have a Sabertooth in a 600T SE (sig rig) and I specially bought a H80 instead of a H100 for this issue (after a long hesitation, i should add ). I don't want to rewmove the 200mm top fan and besides, the temps you obtain with a H80 are pretty close to those of a H100.

Frankly, if I may give you an advice, with your setup, if you want a better cooler than the one you have now and go Corsair HSeries, get a H80, you won't regret it.
post #3615 of 18197
Okay so since I have a Sabertooth, an H80 and a 600T SE I thought maybe taking and uploading some pics would help you out

(Cable management sucks, this is because it is still in progress so I didn't bother until I receive my fans)









This one to notice the clearance under the fan all the way to the RAM slots



Frankly, I'm very satisfied with my temps... I don't like running hot (60°C MAX for daily use) so I keep my OC @ 4.5Ghz 24/7. I can easily do 4.8 or 5.0Ghz but it's too hot for me. And bottom line is, if I had an H100, the few degrees I'd save wouldn't change anything about the fact that I stay @4.5Ghz...

My 2 cents on the matter. I love my setup.

(another note: I'll improve cable management , add some fans and rearrange all the rig, when it's finished I'll post actual good pics since you helped me a lot guys ).

Cheers

I got what you said - when you said it. Thank you for that (1st and 2nd time).

I was mainly asking "other" people's advise on the H80 VS H100 - that is - is the H100's performance really that "significantly" better than the H80 (like more than 5 degrees and up)

Thank you my good man for all the effort there!

If I can make a suggestion regarding cable managment? The smaller/thinner wires are easily neatened using 5mm spiral sleeving. You can buy it from most hardwares and electronic shops. You get it in a black (plastic is harder) & a semi-white-see-through colour (softer and more manageable) which i prefer over the black option. The semi-white-see-through also nicely contrasts with the all black interior.

Really makes smaller/thinner cables look neat and gives it a bit of body/support so that they aren't so flimsy, but still flexible to manage though. Included some pics...

Of course, I should have think of that . Silly me.

Well, I don't possess an H100 so I don't speak by experience, all I can say is: seeing all the temps I've seen in many threads, I only notice a (very) light improvement... Yeah 5 degrees MAX, in fact, often less than that... maybe sometimes, a little more? (it depends on so many parameters, voltage, case, even seating & thermal paste, etc.. not to mention skills and luck).
Like I said, it is not sufficient for me to push my 24/7 OC from 4.5Ghz to 4.8 or 5.0 at temperatures that I deem reasonable... So, to me it is useless.
Now, if you love to do benches and push very high OCs, or do suicide runs just for fun, in that case I presume that the few degrees you win with an H100 may be quite helpful indeed ...

Excellent! Thanks for this, I'll add some of these things when I put my order for the fans in a couple of days... Great help

Hey guys got all my bits a pieces coming tomorrow got the standard 600T and as far as I'm aware the case doesn't come with the side panel that's got the window in it, is that right?

Due to this I was wondering if any of you guys know of a company that can provide me with a nice side panel with a window either full acrylic or semi-metal acrylic. I live in Austria, Vienna so preferably something within the area of Europe. Ill post some pics of the build within the next few days as unis starting so possibly be done with it all on the weekend.

And one more thought that I have been dealing with is I've ordered some sleeving along with it and I didn't bother buying the tool to get the cables out of the plastic bits from the power supply for example anyone have any suggestions on how to get them out without having to spend money on a tool. I had in mind something like a paper clip or something along those lines and hammer down the ends to get them flat.

Wwweell thanks in advance for any answers or help.

Regards,
Max

Contact Bill Owen of MNPCTech, He made my full acrylic window for my SE 600T.

Also you can use heavy duty staples bent into a L shape to get the pins out.
