post #9281 of 18196
I've done some thinking and I'm probably going to replace my h80 with the h100i. So naturally few question as it's the first time I will ever try this smile.gif

So when I remove the h80, I will need to clean the cpu and the h100i comes with thermal paste right? Is this good to clean the cpu?

The fans that come with it, replace with SP120 quiet or AF120?

Also if my front fan is intake and the h100i fans are intake, is one fan blowing hot air out enough?

Agreed with Krullmeister, 1 - 3c at best on the H100 series, only worth it for looks if using the corsair fans with matching rings IMO

-Sparkles-

Good choice on the H100i. Arctic Arti-clean is the best thermal paste remover and cleaner, i have used it for years! It smells really good too haha

Yes the H100i will come with pre-applied thermal paste, i think its a schinistu variety so good stuff already on there. Just clean whats left over from your H80 and install the H100i pump.

You will want the SP120 as they are designed for static pressure and radiators. The AF120 will be of no use on the H100i radiator.

I'd suggest having the H100i fans as exhaust rather than intake as i have found ever plenty of testing the temperatures are better in this configuration

Thanks!

The exhaust fan on the back of the case should I take SP too? I'm learning so much smile.gif

I'd go for either a AF fan or some other brand for the back exhaust. You want the added airflow it brings and you don't need the static pressure of the SP fans! I personally can recommend the BeQuiet! SilentWings2. Definitively my favorite case fan at the moment thumb.gif

ok the twin pack SP120's are in my basket, I'm just thinking that I probably want a white led fan for exhaust since I won't have enough light in my case (acrylic panel on the way).

I'd say that it's better to just get a LED strip instead of a LED fan. You got way more to choose from when it comes to non LED fans and you really want something that actually lights up your components more than the fan will.

I can recommend using the Bitfenix alchemy LED strip, decently priced but very easy to use and gives a nice even light.

And money spent!

* Corsair h100i
* 2x Corsair SP120's
* 1x Corsair AF120 (choose these for same design)
* antistatic wristband

Came in the mail today:

* Bitfenix Spectr Pro 200mm (white led)
* NZXT White led strip (they didn't have the bitfenix one)
* Bitfenix recon

I'll be posting some before and after pics smile.gif

thanks for the advice

However, if you like the look of more fans in the case then go right ahead! thumb.gif

Alright! Heres what I'm thinking:
1.) H100i in the top with two GT 1850rpms(which I already own) as Push intake
2a.) Bitfenix Spectre Pro 120mm x2 as Pull intake on H100i if clearance allows
b.) if not, use as 4.) and 5.)
3.) Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm in the front as intake
4.) SP120 supplied with H100i as HDD cage fan directing air to GPU
5.) Last SP120 supplied with H100i as case rear exhaust

What do you guys think? Or is there a better way about doing this?

I have the NXZT LED Strip and its great, fits the 600T well thumb.gif

Good choice, everything is spot on. I have the Bitfenix recon too. Good controller and cheap but the viewing angle is terrible. Does its job though.

Anti Static wrist band lol, I haven't used one of those for about 5 years! We used to use them here at the school when repairing machines but i think they are a thing of the past! It's an added safety measure though i guess when your spending all that money

Let us know if your happy with your purchases and if your Bitfenix fans are noisy or not when vertically mounted. Krullmeister and I both had issues with them

1)I'd say either use the GT 1850 rpms or the SP120's. If you have a controller use the GT's
2) stay away from the Spectre Pro's as radiator fans
3) Either the Spectre Pro or the CoolerMaster MegaFlow 200mm, I prefer the MegaFlow due to reliability issues with the Spectre Pro
4) Go ahead, It doesn't do much for temps but it does increase airflow in the case a bit.
5) Either that or the GT's, it's basically a preference thing.
