I really appreciate the advice gang! However, we're dealing with TOTALLY different boards! Seems I should rephrase... the Rampage IV Extreme in this case is not optimal. Different boards, same case. Thats my problem. Hmmm.. mod the 600T or the Rampage IV... lol.. I'll the cut the case.

What I suggested was to reduce noise by using bigger stronger fans was to remove the grill between the radiator and the fan on top. I still recommend this for noise reduction and better airflow is what ppl claim to get when they do it.

They are saying that it works for them when they have it in either top push or top pull formation. NOT Push and Pull. I still think with most boards the cpu and ram is too far close to the top and a push pull doesn't work very well.

As you see what he said, Rad and fans on top... doesn't seem to clue in that you have fans on the bottom AS WELL as on top. Well he does admit there is a fan problem (contrary to what he said). It was designed for the H100 in a single sided fan config not a push/pull due to the slight lack of spacing between the top and the motherboard.


I have to ask this question. Do you know how much space there is between the grill (the mesh on the top that hides the fans on top of case), and the case top portion the fan sits on?

if it's about 50mm (5cm) or ~ 2inches then I actually think the H100 radiator fits on top of the case and the fans can push/pull on the top as well (normal 25mm thick fans). Then you can have 25mm fans under the radiator as well. That would fit, and that would mean the 600T can fit the h100 in push/pull with a slight mod. Makes me fairly interested actually but I have no 600T to test

It's about 28mm.
It's so little!

Seems as though we all found our workable solution. Ultimately - any number of fans or fan configuration will only get us so far! im going to make an effort to actually purchase some parts from DazMode tonight and look into real liquid cooling. I have to admit the H100 is a really great cooler - in fact keeping my 5200mhz overclock at 39C on idle. It wouldn't hold course for a two hour long render - but its pretty impressive for what it costs and what it does.

However, the H100 will only take an enthusiast so far. I think i just hit the ceiling.

Modded mine to top mount the H100T and also removed all the grills.

Also added a custom SSD mount with AP-15 as in take also.

I havent totally understood this yet, sorry.
Did you remove the grills to get H100 to fit intop? Thought that should'nt be a problem.
Or do you have som spescial setup? No fans ontop?

I have gentle typhoons pushing into the rad, you can see them here.

Makes me fairly interested actually but I have no 600T to test

The upper fan compartment is a little thicker than a 120mm 25mm thick fan, or a 25mm thick rad. As you can see from the pictures, I had the H100 installed inside the 600T with two different main boards. The socket 775 board allowed me to make a mod allowing the H100 to be installed with four fans in push/pull (that's the build in my last post that had three fans across the top). The socket 1155 board, on the other hand, has RAM too close to the top of the case (just like the Rampage), so it will only fit the fans or the rad, not both. In this instance, I could only have one set of fans so I selected to put them inside the case and put the H100 rad in the top fan compartment. There are two examples of this now, mine and the one done by Iggg.

That is only relevant for the socket 775 board I showed. I also showed a socket 1155 board, which has its memory mounted in exactly the same location as the Rampage board does.

As I said, there is no spacing problem on the 600T. You can install an H100 and one set of fans with any motherboard. The fans are supposed to be in the top compartment. You can do mods to alter how everything mounts, but stock it works fine with an H100.

You're the only other person I've seen mount the H100 rad in the fan compartment. Nice job. Did you do it that way because you wanted push/exhaust?
