Here's a pic from when I just had the 2 fans on drawing air from out side. Will take more pics later.

No difference on the temps...

But I overclocked my CPU to 4 GHz, and the temps in Prime is about 55 idle and 80 load. I don't know what to do anymore to low this temps... Maybe the airflow in my case isn't good?

And another question: how I know the direction of the airflow in the H100i coolers? I putted the blades part facing the bottom of the case. If I put another 2 SP120 in the top of the case, to P/P configuration, how is the direction that I can place them?

In my experience the general rule with computer fans is that the air flows out the side with the sticker on. If the blades on the SP120's are facing the radiator then you did it right. If the sticker side is facing the rad then you blowing air into it from both end's and it had no way to escape and would keep the radiator pretty hot. What are your ambient temperatures like where you are?

Looks nice, I like the blue and black theme you have going on there.

You do need to have a decent amount of airflow coming into your case. Right now it sounds like you have it setup in pull, do you feel air coming out the top? Easy way to check is to take a piece of paper and set it on there, if it's sticking to the top then you have the fans running as intake. Post a screen shot of your Corsair Link to see if there's anything telling about your pump flow, fan RPM, etc we could look at.

The side the sticker is on (front) is your intake side. The side with the brackets and power cable (back) is your exhaust. Most fans should have a directional arrow indicating the airflow. For some reason the SP120L fans that come with these newer coolers do not have the flow direction.

Many fans don't have a sticker on the intake side. All fans have a sticker on the outlet/bracket/motor side. Unfortunately the stock fans for the H100i don't have direction arrows. I should have said the side with the sticker that has the information on, not just the logo.

Does the H60i use the same backplate and mounting brackets as the H60? I plan on getting replacing my older H60 with the newer H60i. My cpu mobo cutout isn't wide enough for me to swap out directly and I really don't feel like taking my case apart again.

If it's anything like the H100i/H80i it's going to have a back bracket for the 1155 and the riser screws. The front bracket is neat as it's magnetic so it'll stay in place while you get the screws started. If you can't get to the backplate through the back of your case you'll have to take the mobo out. I wouldn't mount the waterblock on it until after you get it back in the case though as the tubes are attached to the rad.

Just curious why H60i instead of H80i? You can pick one up for $85 after MIR over at newegg right now. It is a bigger rad but they cool just as well as the H100/i from the temps and data I have seen.

Do you think I should reverse the fans to push the air in the case or keep it pulling out?

You need to visit the 600T thread and the hydro series cooler thread.

With the fans up top, you can have push/intake or pull/exhaust. It's basically a choice between intake or exhaust. The forces behind hot air rising are so weak in an area the size of a computer case so as to be irrelevant when compared to the force the fans put out. Other than dust considerations (intake), you should base your choice partially on what type of gpu you have. If it's a reference type card, with a blower style fan channeling hot air out the back of the case, you might want to use exhaust on the H100. However, if you have a gpu that dumps heat inside the case, you might want to make the H100 intake so as not to be exhausting hot video card air through your H100.

Most fans (not all) have two arrows on one side. One points in the direction of air flow, and the other in the direction of rotation of the blades.

Thanks for the info. I do have reference cards so I probably shouldn't be blowing hot air back in to the case as they get warm enough smile.gif It was my first thought but wanted a second opinion on it. I can always try it both ways and see which works best. Cheers!

Corsair H100i fits in Azza Solano 1000/R.





Fans are pushing up, and this case has a big 230mm fan in the top of it. So technically it's push/pull.

Clearance between my big ROG motherboard cpu power cables and the rads is a little close. Other boards may not work.
