So i have to add washers between backplate and motherboard. Now it isnot loose anymore. is there anybody who had a problem like mine?

It's supposed to be that way because the front bracket screws pull the back bracket together. My concern is you added washers which could cause a short. You also leave the plastic on the backplate too for insulation. The idea is the bracket mounting system won't touch the mobo other than the water block itself.

Thanks for the helpful thread, are you going to add H110 to the list when it is released?

New member here. Long time avid builder but new to doing push pull with closed loop water coolers. A few questions....

Getting an H100i and I ordered 2 sets of SP120 Performance fans. On the Corsair 500R which I just received, I can mount 2 intake fans on the top of the case and then the radiator. My question is, will I have enough room to also mount the 2 other fans in the interior? I have observed this thread here and it shows 3 separate push pull configs for the h100i and the Corsair 500R case. I just want to know what fans were used since the SP120's are 120mm fans and I want to make sure I will have the clearance on the case. I don't have bulky RAM dimms with huge heatsinks, only these here....



Room in this regard isn't an issue so I just want to get some direct input from anyone who has done this type of setup with a 500R. Thanks in advance.

Shouldn't be an issue touching your ram. Keep in mind the H100i rad and fans are 50mm (about 2 inches), so just add another 25mm (size of a fan, about 3 inches total) to see if you have enough clearance to do push/pull. I think you'll have enough room because with the 500R it has the area above the 'inside' for you to mount your pull fans. Should have plenty of room to mount the rad and internal push fans I would think.

Thanks, I just sort of needed that kind of confirmation. I don't have the motherboard in yet as I'm waiting for the money to come along early next month but I have some things I'm trying to fit in the case prior to getting the rest of the parts. Sounds like the MB won't really go too high up into the case and nothing will stick out too much but I wanted to have someone say it. I will probably check back once it's all said and done. Thanks.

The concern in this specific case is not the RAM but the VRM heatsinks on the motherboard...



Normally run horizontally above the CPU socket and/or vertically to the left of the socket is all your power delivery and voltage regulation, dependant on the motherboard it can be quite large. Higher end boards that are designed specifically with OC'ing in mind often have larger heatsinks,

The h100i does in fact fit in the front of the define R4. https://www.overclock.net/t/838683/fractal-design-case-club/5840#post_19145654
