BioShock2, Guild Wars, DC Universe, Duke, Mass Effect 2, BF3 (just finished, NOOB at multi), Star Craft 2, Titan Quest, Borderlands, and some older games too. Web Cruising, media server, poking and prodding. I try and play with it more than I fiddle with it (so to speak).

It's still available in Canada: http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX30870
They're all a slight bit long. They're made for going through grommets and things. If it pokes into the rad fins in the corner it's not going to hurt anything. If the fins directly in the corners get bent from the screws it will not cause any problems. The fins do not hold any water. The water is in the metal tubes that go through the fins. Also, it won't cause any airflow problems either because air does not normally flow through those corners since they're usually covered by screws and fan mounts. If you're really concerned about them you can always file them down a bit, or add a washer or two.
Why didn't you just install it with the fans up top? You'd be using it right now and showing it off to everyone and getting excellent temperatures. How does stripping the screw holes make the cooler overhyped? Sorry if I seem harsh, but I hardly see anything here that's the H100s fault. If you're going to mod something specifically avoiding manufacturers recommended installation and you break it you shouldn't blame it on the device. The best I could say in your case is that the instructions should be a little more explicit as to how to mount an H100 in a 600T, but you knew enough to ask about it here. Radiator screw holes are fairly delicate and care needs to be taken not to strip them. I suppose you may have gotten one with (several) badly manufactured holes, but I bet if no unusual strain was put on them they would have worked fine.
On a side note, I picked up another SSD (a 60 GB Corsair). I now have my 60GB SATA II Partiot Inferno in a RAID 0 with the new 60 GB Corsair SATA II. My average read speed has gone from 246 MB/s to 461MB/s using HD Tune. After post my system is booting up in 10-15 seconds. I expect that to increase slightly as I use the machine over the next few months. I increased my boot drive capacity by double and my transfer rate by almost double. I'll have to keep my eye on this garbage collection thing though since this version of IRST does not support trim. 338
On an even sider note: If anyone likes using Windows 7 Gadgets, the geniuses at Microsoft have decided they will no longer have the gallery available so you may not be able to get your favorite gadgets any more. They have one page left. They have decided that since the next version of Windows will no longer use these types of apps, that the people who purchased Windows 7 and payed for this feature should no longer be able to use it. I would hate to see them take a loss because of all the effort it took to let people upload and download gadgets.
Now my favorite gadget is no longer available and I'm not too happy about it. I thought I had backed it up. Now every time I inadvertently go to use it I get a twang of being pi$$ed at MS again. but cest la vie.....
So if you have some gadgets you love using, back them up or you will lose them on your next reinstall.

Yeah I did install the fans on the top, and while screwing it in the holes stripped, i didn't break it, its just messed up, plus the screws being too long. And yes, i asked about it here, knew to top mount the fans, and it stripped.
Oh, and there was absolutely no modding, just screwing the fans on from the top, and suddenly the hole stripped

I haven't played Guild Wars in years - I stopped right before I hit rank 10... I got tired of the over balancing that Arena.Net constantly did to the game.

I play the crap out of TF2 now, and am anxiously awaiting the release of Diablo 3... I have played Diablo 2 since the game first came out so many many years ago.

Just a copy/paste from my build log...

My Corsair AX1200 arrived today...
338

its funny though, how builds tend to always have those off-the-cuff changes due to the result of something not quite fitting the way you planned it originally, or a really good idea just hits you like a ton of bricks!

338

That is the styrfoam packing that the AX1200 was packaged with, and I instantly got the idea to use it as a vibration dampener + spacer for the front fan. It fit perfectly, and it made the fan even quieter when operating at low speed!

I'm also trying to get the hang of this new camera, and trying to work on my photography skills a bit... plus trying to do some wire-sleeving as well...

Thanks a bunch, I just sent a message to Corsair to see if they're discontinued or not. thumb.gif

Mostly gaming smile.gif Skyrim, millions of playthroughs of Mass Effect 1 and 2, among many others. I do some folding, too, for my buddy's team thumb.gif

Also, just picked up a CM Megaflow and stuck it in the front intake, fits like a glove - used rubber fan mounts, and it's super quiet, even at full speed. Replaced the rear exhaust with a Gelid Silent 12 1000 RPM, though it has this issue where it drops to 0 RPM randomly, then kicks back on. Anyone else have this issue?
