You mean use this mount? Wonder if its worth it or not, it might help exhaust even more hot air from my case?

Also how are you able to screw those top fans on without having anything to screw them into?

Here are some images I just took of the mounting for the H100 biggrin.gif hope it helps! and you guys will have to excuse the poor lighting in these pictures, it is night time in Norway ph34r-smiley.gif You should be able to get an idea anyhow though, hopefully, but here it goes: Pictures of h100 push/pull mounting (Click to show)

It all fits below the top case mesh piece! biggrin.gif







Some inside views





Here is some pictures of how the ofset mounting looks, and where I put the screws






Edit: I think this works really well! worth mentioning

Nice. It looks neat too.

I was thinking about that too. You should give it a shot.

So paperbag only used 3 screws? Is this safe? Im assuming it is, I dont have an H100 to know how heavy it is tongue.gif. And the top fans arn't offset? does this mess up the airflow at all?

I want to swap out the front 200mm because the airflow doesnt seem very good with the stock corsair fan.

I will order the 120mm corsair fan for the rear right now.

I just dont know what to do with the two 200mm on the front and top. The front was very warm this weekend which I am not used to because the antec case was always super cool. a few times it was even cooling the room down a few degrees.

You could use two 120mm fans on the top of the case. That would be your best option since not all 200mm fans will fit up top. I would recommend using them as exhaust because using them as intake will draw dust directly into the case (the top mesh has no dust filter).

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14346/ffi-88/DEMCiflex_Corsair_600T_Magnetic_Dust_Fan_Filter_Set_-_4_Piece.html

Most people purchase Spectre Pro fans for the front 200mm fan. They are pretty good fans and will bolt right in. If you don't mind minor modding, you can get a 200mm 166cfm NZXT fan to fit in the front. They are 30mm wide though, so you either have to move the hard drive cages back or remove the little curl from the front left corner of the cages to get the fan to fit. That NZXT fan is exceptional at moving air, and will move as much on low as the Spectre Pro does on high (I own both, switched to the Spectre Pro, decided the NZXT was better and swapped them back). The NZXT is quite loud on high (full RPM) though, but it really works well.

Another good option is to install an "intermediate" fan to assist moving the air from the 200mm intake fan. This usually involves removing the upper hard drive cage and installing a fan between the remaining hard drive cage and the optical drive bays pushing air directly onto the video card. There are a ton of examples of this throughout the thread. Let us know if you need a picture and someone will link to, or post one. Edit: There's a picture of intermediate fans in the link below.

There are a couple of ways you can do this, but they all require a mod of one type or another.

1: Use slim 120mm fans. Disadvantage: slim fans suck.
2: Move the fans inside the case closer toward the side panel. Disadvantage: Offset fans less effective. (in fact, considering how little difference push/pull makes on the H100, you might actually be impeding cooling by doing this).
3: Get a board with the RAM, cpu socket and cpu power socket mounted low enough on the mobo to allow a fan and rad to fit inside. Disadvantage: Hard to find a board like this.
4: If your memory is mounted low enough on the mobo, you could cut the case to allow the H100 rad to move forward enough to clear the cpu power header and cpu socket. Disadvantage: Hard to find board (not as hard as #3), must mod case. (I did this with a socket 775 core 2 quad main board, and it fit perfectly. I did the 360mm rad mod to my case, and moved the H100 forward a complete 120mm fan length). Pics here: http://www.overclock.net/t/831636/official-corsair-graphite-club/2630#post_14528585
5: Realize that Corsair tested the H100 with push/pull in a lab and recorded no difference in cooling (likely because the H100 rad is a thin rad), and just not use push/pull (of course, that was in a lab, not in a case).

Depends on what you consider "major". A couple of degrees at most. Likely not even that.

http://martinsliquidlab.i4memory.com/Radiator-Fan-Orientation-And-Shroud-Testing-Review.html

That site tests push vs pull (in the bottom chart) and they record a difference of less than 1c. In my opinion, push/pull isn't worth the hassle. If I had to do it again, with my current motherboard and a new 600T case, I wouldn't bother with push/pull at all. The H100 works fine using the rad inside the case, and the fans mounted up top. If you use them as push/intake you will get a couple of degrees better CPU temps, and if you use them in pull/exhaust you will get better video card temps by up to a couple of degrees. The only other consideration is dust. Check the top link in this comment for a set of 600T dust filters if you want to use intake, you don't need one if you use exhaust. I'm using exhaust on my H100 right now, and I hardly ever have to clean the rad.

Did you ever try using the fans inside the case and the radiator up top?

I had my H100 up top and my fans inside, so I only had a push setup using 2 x Corsair SP120 silents and the dust I got on my inside radiator was rather alarming for only 4 months and this was located on my desk.



My current build which I am still working on will ensure I have filters in front of my internal radiators aswell as where the air is being sucked in from. I'm just trying to point out that however you mount a radiator and fan setup in your box you should check it from time to time to ensure you dont have a large dust build up.

I was shocked, as I thought my radiator was perfectly clean and free from dust.. but as you can see that was not the case.

you can pick up some 120mm filters pretty cheap. Silverstone makes magnetic ones, just put little squares of magnetic tape on the fans so they line up with the ones on the filter. i did this for my side fans.

Yeah, the Silverstone filters are great. I have 3 of them although I'm only using one of them at the moment. When I had my top fan set as intake, it collected a great bit of dust.

SLI and Memory cooler update:


A friend at work gave me a Corsair memory cooler, here is how it look after i changed the fan and added black fan grills:



It was not easy to install, I had to add ( 2 ) 15 mm extensions fittings to the water block.
