I cant get sleeves in my country. They're not available here.
I'm surprised at myself. Why didnt I notice that I could use an AF120? I'll make sure to get one when I get all the other fans.
The Platinums really are exquisite. Too bad the LEDs on them dont show too much because of the huge LEDs of the 200mm fan above it.

Thanks again! smile.gif

You need to do what Sparkles said and move that HDD cage to the backmost position. Just unscrew the thumb screws at the bottom and screw it into the holes right over to the left.

As other said, you won't get good temps with those stock fans. You need to replace all those fans with better ones. For the front, get the 200mm Megaflow. For the exhaust, a popular choice is the AF120 from Corsair. On the top, you only wanna put one fan, since you have an air CPU cooler. Since your cooler intakes from the right and exhausts from the left, you either wanna place an AF120 in the backmost position at the top as exhaust to help exhaust the hot air coming off of the cooler, or place an AF120 (or the stock 200mm, if you want, although I'd recommend the AF) in the frontmost position at the top as intake to feed cool air to the cooler. The choice depends on whether you want a negative or positive pressure system respectively. Finally, if you look around here you can see a lot of people mount a fan on top of the HDD cage (positioned next to the PSU) with zip ties. This is a really easy thing to do and helps with GPU temps.

You might wanna consider removing the HDD cage. It'll only mess up the paint job on the chassis itself, which you can't see since it's under the external white fascia, except for the part where it attaches to the motherboard tray. You could always spray it again yourself. But the advantage of doing this is that you can drill holes to mount another 200mm fan, which can help a lot with airflow. I myself have done this using instructions by users Devious Dog and chrischoi. You can look at (slightly outdated) pictures of my build for the result.

On a different subject, did you all watch Linus' video on the Swiftech H220? Pretty out there results, beating the H100i by over 15 degrees. Can that be right?


Also, Corsair PWM fans available now. Anyone getting them? I'm planning on getting a pair for my V6GT and eventual H100i. Or H220, if these results are to be trusted...
post #9563 of 18196
The h220 is designed to work with slower fans vrs the H100i with high speed fans. So this is why there is such a difference in Linus's video. He is trying to make all the variables the same, but this creates a disadvantage for the H100.

So as some might remember my setup had mixed matched 680s...


So I finally got around to making a change... I think it looks much better now! Sorry for the crappy cell phone shots smile.gif

Allthough I'm not a huge fan of the flame font, those covers are definitively an improvement! Fits your build perfectly, nice job thumb.gif

Yey those covers are great mate, look so much better! Would look even better without the flame font IMO but regardless you did a great job!

Yeah, but... that just makes it a better radiator? It gives you better temps at lower noise levels.

Are these instructions from Devious Dog and chrischoi somewhere I can find the easily or do I have to search for them in the thread?
How hard was the front fan mod to do? Did you run into any problems? Any tips that could help me when I do mine in a couple of days?

Actually, it wasn't chrischoi but DeadlyPaperBag, sorry about that.

So, removing the 5.25" cage is really easy. You have to remove both the side panels and the front and top plastic fascias, since they're covering the rivets that are holding the cage. If you don't know how to remove rivets, a quick Google search can help you out (I think there's a thread here on OCN about it as well). I don't have a de-riveting tool, so all I did was use a flat head screwdriver and a hammer. I aligned the tip of the screwdriver with the rivet head vertically, so that I could hammer the screwdriver down and sort of peel off the rivet head. I dunno if that's clear. You can Google that too, though. That's how I found that method. Anyway, once the rivet head is off, you can just push the rivet off its hole.

Now, to actually be able to fit another 200mm fan in the front, you'll have to do some drilling. There's two ways to go about this. One is Devious Dog's way, and the other is DPB's way. I used DPB's way because it was easier for me to do since I'm not an experienced modder by any means. This post details my experience. Didn't have any problems aside from not being good with a drill tongue.gif

All you need to remove the rivets is a drill, 1/8th drill bit and pliers, you should be able to borrow the drill and pliers from someone and a 1/8th drill bit will only cost like $2. I would ensure your drill bit is a grade called High speed steel (HSS) as this will last a lot longer and will not dull as quick. Then just drill through the head of the rivet with the drill bit, you might need to hold the back of the rivet with the pliers to stop it from spinning around, take it nice and slow as the rivets Corsair use are just aluminium ones and you will cut through them like butter.

If you are not concerned with the fans being in perfect alignment with the front whole then just place the fan on the front and mark the wholes for the screws and purchase some M3x30mm screws and nuts, you might need some small washers for the head of the screws to hold the against the fans. Please remember to counter punch the center mark of where you are going to drill, this will stop the drill bit from sliding around on the steel front, you can use a large nail and hammer if you dont have a center punch tool.

Just remember, if your skill level or confidence is low.. just practice on some scrap metal.

I hope this helps.. thumb.gif I would not go through the pain of cutting the plastic around the controller board and then having to cut the top part of the case. Just drill 8 new holes in the front of your case and have the fan off center from the front hole. And if you dont like you can always rivet it all back together with some 4.1 rivets.
