Form Factor Extended ATX Form Factor
12 inch x 10.7 inch ( 30.5 cm x 27.2 cm )

So as you can see, board size is exactly the same as the RIVE which fits in with loads of space.

Thanks mate! redface.gif

You're right. You have to mod one way or another to get an H100 to fit using push/pull. Even if it's such a simple mod as mounting the rad and fans offset inside the case. However, why people are doing this with the H100 I really cannot answer. The difference you get on the thin H100 rad is pretty much nothing. Corsair tested this in their lab and found that they got the same temps with one set of fans (push) or two sets of fans (push/pull). This is because the H100 rad is very thin and an extra set of fans makes very little difference.

When we look at the water coolers with thicker rads, like the H80 for example, you notice that Corsair provides two fans to use in push/pull, because with the thicker rad it make somewhat of a difference in temperatures.

Now, consider that people placing one set of fans offset on the H100 are not even getting the full benefit (what little there is) of push/pull, and I wonder, other than looks, why they bother. When I first did this with my case, I was new to water cooling, and I used a push/pull H100 (on a socket 775 Core 2 Quad overclocked). I did a pretty major mod to my case to get push/pull to work, partly because I was upgrading from an H70, which had a thicker rad and used push/pull so I didn't realize that the thinner rad on the H100 meant that push/pull wouldn't have any real benefit. Now that I know how little difference it makes (if any) on an H100, I wouldn't bother going through the effort and I especially wouldn't do such a major mod to my case. I'm considering modding my H100 now to connect it to a 360mm rad since my case is modded for it. I'm just considering it since I'm not sure if I want to void my H100 warranty.

Even though the H100i is enough cooling for me I like the idea of the 360 rad. Personally I'd leave the H100 as-is and move to the Swiftech 320 when it comes out (supposed to be fairly soon). The grillle on top of my case is just begging to be filled properly with 3 fans... seems a shame they left that big space at the front. Remenber yours (and other's) all filled up and it just looked Right.

Yes its still a Corsair 600T, kind of.. and yes I am using a different power button and USB 3 panel which I got from Corsair.
You flaming galah, you call yourself a temp whore.. I have 2x 400 Radiators and 8x 200mm Fans in my Corsair 600T so I think I take the trumps on the temp whore title mate.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
You should be able to cut the top left hand side section of steel underneith the top grill and then flatten out and then mount your fans on this with more off shifting alowwing you you then get over the memory banks and squeeze in your radiator (H100/i) and stick another set of fans in the inside for a push pull configuration, this would be rather simple to do. One thing to note though, you will start to restrict a bit of air over your memory and you will not be able to put any cooling on your memory DIMMs. That being said, memory normally never gets that hot.. unless you do a CRAZY over clock on the memory.

On the hottiest day in OZ my system normally never gets hotter than 45'C on the GPU and 47'C on the CPU.. unless I am doing benchmarking, and I dont have air con in my appartment just a nice sea breeze.

As for the overclocking on the RIVE I had it set to 4.6/4.7 with no problem using a H100 which is now collecting dust, and that worked with no problem. The H100 is a great start to water cooling, but be warned.. once bitten by the water cooling bug your system may look like mine biggrin.gif


Well i already got a system here with a RIVE that i custom water cooled, so i know how the bug is mate haha.. I'm considering im going to ditch the H100 and just go custom again. I got another raystorm CPU block here also a RX360 rad but no idea where i'll fit it, so I am assuming i would probably have to mount it in the front vertically and then do it that way. I much prefer the custom watercooling over a AIO kits like corsair or swiftech.

So this is my rig, I've posted it before so i'm in the club but I want to do some stuff and want some advice smile.gif

This is not a recent pic, there are some minor changes, first I only use one HDD rack and moved it to the left, so the fan has more room. I put my ssd on top above my dvd-writer, this is also a new model (old one was broken). The soundcard will be upgraded to a xonar essence stx.

Now I want to change my fans smile.gif. I find that they make to much noise frown.gif

I would prefer white led fans to replace my current white fans and they have to be more silent. For the fans from the cpu cooler I'm considering the Corsair air series (quiet edition).

I've also got a question about my gpu's, is it normal that the it bows a bit, the first card? you can see it in the picture?

Some other suggestions?

thx

LL

Someone? plz smile.gif

You could go for some Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm with White LED's. I got those in red and I'm pretty happy with them.
And they are definitly quieter then the stock fans.

For the CPU you could use SP120 from Corsair which come with 3 different colord rings (one's white)

Can't really help with the GPU thing, I for myself have a GTX680 from ASUS which is really big and heavy but it doesn't bow down i think.

hope this helps a bit smile.gif

I do like the Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm with White LED's, they even give you a connector to run it at 7v which makes it very quite.. but of course less air flow.

One thing I would do if you had some spare cash is throw all those 5.25" drives into a NAS encloser and RAID 5 them and just have one SSD and remove them from your system as they suck up extra power, produce more heat and most important they block your air flow. One NAS I can strongly recommend is QNAP as you can run most things over a GIGA network at home.

Additionally you could make up a temp side panel out some cheap 5mm wood and then mount two 120mm fans directly above youre GPU's and test in either Intake and then exhaust and see if this helps with airflow .. if you just want to do a mock test you can also use some thick cardboard, if temps drop, then think about getting another side panel and doing it on that or get a custom arcrilic one made or mail order.

Additionally you could look at getting some waterblocks for your GPU's and do a full custom loop if you have spare cash just sitting around, depends on how serious you are about the temps on your GPU's.

I have a GTX690 and these cards are not made for one single fan cooling them, hot air gets pushed back on itself as the processors are at either end of the card and a fan in the middle.. This is why I went for a full water cooled system.. And when I look at it, it just makes me happy biggrin.gif

Anyway, these are just a couple idea's.. I hope they help thumb.gif

Over the past few months after finding this thread I think I have managed to read about all the posts tongue.gif Enjoyed seeing all the beautiful setups! I had posted a picture of my area to join the club and said I would take some pictures of my rig in the near future. I finally busted out the dslr and took some photos. Nothing special in comparison to some peoples but it's mine! Any suggestions are welcome. Cheers!
