just a quickie on the compatibility thread (for 1st page addition), I've tried H110 with Cosmos II and it fits perfectly, no need for any modding whatsoever. Rad sits below top of the case, while fans will sit above it, however still under the top cover. very nice fittings... thumb.gif

I have an issue, and I was curious if there is any way to potentially fix it WITHOUT RMAing, and my RMA is actually up, the 30 days has passed.

The radiator screw holes have indeed stripped, any way to fix this?

Get screws that are bigger than 3/16 and it might work. Problem is once threads are gone it's just a hole so you need something that will fit in it to anchor the screws. Don't overtighten that's usually what causes this issue.

I have the Thermaltake Chaser MK-I case, and unfortunatly due to the high heatsinks from my motherboard, (MSI z77 MPower) the H100i does not fit, the radiator fits fine, but cant mount the fans because of the heatsink surrounding my cpu on my motherboard, but im sure if your willing to drill new holes and maybe put the radiator in the "top case" and mount the fans under it through the holes you drill yourself it could be done, but i dont have the equipment to mod my case like that.

So just a heads up, If you have the Thermaltake Chaser MK-I case, and thinking about getting a H100i, make sure your heatsinks from the motherboard surrounding the CPU ain't to high.

It is made of aluminum which is a very soft metal. The threads simply strip out when over tightened. I would go to the hardware store and find small nuts to put on the back side. There is a tiny gap between the fins and the hole. You can put the nut between the hole and fins then tighten the screw into the nut. Should work fine. A tiny drop of superglue can be used to hold the nut in place. Do this before trying to mount it all together. Good luck.

I don't suppose anyone knows if the H110 would go in the top of the CM 690 II? The H100 fits there so all logic says that so will the H110 as there's mounting holes for both 120mm and 140mm in the top.

I wouldn't advise putting anything between the rad and fan beucase you'll run the risk of having a gap instead of the fan right up against the rad. I don't know if the holes on the rad go all the way through or not, can't remember if mine does. Glue will indeed void your warranty. That being said, I'm not sure if you can RMA or not considering you stripped them and it's not a defective product. Usually these have at least a 2 year warrenty on them, but you'll have to go through Corsair not the store you bought it from. You can always try the retailer but I highly doubt you'll get anywhere.

hi guys,

I have Lancool k62 red. it's been a year that I used h80 cooler inside.
Now I wondering to get h110 to support haswell later, since the h100i using 120mm fan that can't fit in my case without some metal surgery. (k62 top fan - 140mm)
So that I decide to buy h110, not sure but the plan is put the fans on top like normal, then the rad hang inside the case, right below the metal surface. I haven't measure it but hope it (rad) fit without get contact with ram and all will work perfectly.
Maybe anyone here ever made this configuration with k62 + h110 ?? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
