I'm planning a ITX build in a Corsair 250D. My plan is to put a H100i on my CPU, and I was thinking about putting a H80 on my GPU - I believe the case is short enough that I should be able to mount the radiator on the front of the case. My question primarily lies in this: I'll have two available USB 2.0 headers on the motherboard - 1 will be occupied by the CPU cooler - can I put the H80 on the second USB 2.0 header and control the H80 on the GPU with the software? Can their software handle two of their coolers at the same time, and, how does it read temps? Can I read them from the GPU?

Thanks!

It should run both coolers, but I don't think it will display your GPU temp. Your best bet would be to go with a Corsair H75 and control the fans with a fan controller or you motherboard's onboard fan headers. Also, the H75 is smaller than the H80i (it would fit in the 250D) and it would be compatible with the NZXT Kraken G10 watercooling bracket.

I guess I should have just read the manual for Corsair Link - it can read GPU temps. This makes the idea of using a H80i seem good - I'm sure it's going to fit in the front, since it's a 120mm radiator, and the 250D can do a 140mm in the front.

I already ordered a bracket for my Kuhler 620, so I guess it's time to order one for the H80i. I should have the case this week, so I can measure from approx. GPU spot to front to see if the tubing is long enough.

Does anyone have a measurement of the tubes on te H80i?

What GPU are you using?
I had the Kraken G10 with H50 hooked up to my GTX Titan and percision X (or whatever it is called) displayed my gpu temps with no issue.
I had the pumped hooked to a fan header and everything worked.

What bracket works with the square style blocks/pumps??

I have a 660Ti with plans to move up some time this summer depending how the new chipset looks from nVidia. KustomPC's has a bracket for the H80/100/square mounts - not sure if it has a fan mount for the memory, though. Should prove to be an interesting setup & system.

Okay, the H80i should prove to be a vast improvement on temp. I have a Carbide Air 540 with great air flow for the memory. Once you get it all rocking post some pictures of the inside!

The tubes on the H80i are fairly short, I think they are about 9 inches.

My assumption is that it's a 13" case, and the GPU is already a few inches in, and the rad will be a bit off the front, I should be good.
