If you want your mobo/BIOS to control your fans you would likely have to purchase some PWM fans (check your manual) because your board will also likely only control 4-pin fans. I've been looking for some good 2000 RPM + PWM 120mm fans that have a good static pressure for a rad, but I just can't seem to locate any in Canada. I really like PWM and I personally find it very unfortunate that more cases and coolers don't come with PWM even though so many mobos now will have three or four PWM fan headers. I think the cooler/case manufacturers need to get on the same page as the mobo manufacturers. 3-pin fans are so last century.
You could connect the H100 fans on your board anyway and run them at 100% all the time, but that would be a little on the loud side. A fan controller would allow for manual control, although personally I prefer some type of auto control (for my CPU cooler). The H100 block set on medium will most likely do a fine job for you until you decide if you want to change things around (PWM, Fan Controller or other).
You need to check your manual and see if your mobo will control 3-pin fans (it's unlikely). I would recommend the H100 block on the medium setting for best noise/performance.

Can I suggest some Akasa Viper fans, or Apaches?? They are both PWM, and have great static pressure. Have hydro dynamic bearings, and come pre-sleeved with some nice sleeving. The Vipers have a range of like 600-2000RPM, but have yellow blades. They look good, just not with my black/silver/blue scheme. But the Apaches come in solid black, and camo schemes, and have RPM range of 600-1300.

Personally I wished you could get the Vipers in black, but not the big of a deal.

If you want to go with some higher speed fans, you can do as I am thinking of doing. Getting some high speed GTs, and soldering on a 4th wire for the PWM control for free. Ehume did it here, and I bought a used AP-29 just to test for myself, which I have yet to do but it does have the 4th soldering point.

I would be using an Akasa Flexa, which is a 5 way PWM splitter with supplies its own power. That way I wouldnt overload my MOBOs fan header. My MOBO only has one.

The inside of my case only seems to be a couple of degrees hoitter than yours when I'm playing games so I'm not going to panic about it.
One more question though, did you keep your stock fans on the case at front and back too. I ask this as it seems your a fan of the stocks on the H100.

Actually case PWM fans are fairly easy to find, but PWM fans with good static pressure and that will run over 2000 RPM are not that easy to find (again, in Canada). I have been looking around and would grab some if I could find them.

I do like the stock H100 fans because they have high air flow and high static pressure and run over 2000 RPM. If they were PWM they would be perfect. They are noisy at high speeds, but then you can always reduce their speed.

I replaced the front fan with a 200mm NZXT fan that gets around 166 cfm. Again, this is a fairly noisy fan but it's connected to a fan controller so I can turn it down when I'm not gaming. It also required a mod to get the fan to fit. I cut a 120mm hole in the bottom of my case and added a 120mm intake fan so I have two intake fans. The 120mm fan helps cool the lower video card. I also added an intermediate fan (as plenty of others have done) between my bottom hard drive cage and the top optical drive bays (I removed the upper hard drive cage). This fan helps cool the upper video card. All my fans are connected to a fan controller (after market) so I can turn them all down when I don't need them. I'm still using the stock rear exhaust fan and I usually leave it turned down even when gaming. The H100 is set up as push/exhaust due to a mod I did on my case, so it is the major exhaust rout when playing games. Of course, I have those fans connected to the CPU_FAN header so they will speed up by themselves when the cpu starts warming up.

My video cards exhaust out the back of my system so I feel my current arrangement is best for my requirements, and for reducing dust.

Unfortunately those fans do not list their static pressure.

@goodtobeking

I have turned down GTs before because they were not PWM. I had no idea they had PWN circuitry pre-installed. Next time my local store has them in stock I will pick some up. Unfortunately they only have the 500 RPM silent GTs at the moment.

+1 for you. Has anyone checked the H100 fans to see if they have PWM hardware installed? I think I'll look into that.

I have taken an H100 fan apart. The armature is glued in, so I cannot remove it. Looking at the circuit board, you can see through it and it looks like there is a fourth solder pad. It could be for a PWM control wire but I'm not willing to risk wrecking the fan by pulling too hard on the armature. So, could be, but maybe not. Perhaps someone who doesn't care about wrecking their H100 fan can try pulling the armature out of one of the fans.

Double post. sorry guys but different topic.

If anyone is planning on purchasing one of the new Corsair mice, hold off for a few more months at least. I just got the M90 and the software barely functions at all. None of the custom buttons will work in Skyrim, the profile LEDs don't work, and the mapping software will map buttons to keys but they still won't work in Skyrim. Others in their forums are complaining as well. Their software is just about the worst I have ever seen and should have been vastly improved before the product was released for sale.

I had thought since I liked my H100, H70 and H50 so much, and love my 600T that their mice would be awesome as well. The hardware is, but the software sucks. Logitech, Razer and even Saitek software is years ahead of the Corsair software (literally). Hold off. The mouse is awesome, but the software is the worst. If they don't do something before the new year I'm returning it.

From my understanding, only the highspeed versions have the PWM circuitry. Ehume tried it on his AP-15 I believe, and no spot to even solder to.

My fan controller died, at first was stuck at min speed then just fully went out and wouldnt power any fans. I've been trying to RMA it for like two months now but support is super slow to respond and they plain just dont reply to mails sent to rma@corsair.com

I currently have my H100 fans plugged into the H100 block (which, thanks corsair for making the fan wires too short to reach your own cooling block in your own case...) and the front and back case fans plugged into the MB.

Have you checked your junk folder?

PS have you used up your Dirt 3 key? cus you kind of have it floating on the internet now lol

Tnx bro. love my new cooler colour. never liked the red leds. n since as im gonna b using th white 600 it will blend perfectly. that is not my DIRT key

Sorry for the late response, but made a lot of those changes you suggested, completely rewired my system and took out one of the drive bays. It looks a lot better now, thanks
