Hello guys,

Im just wondering if a corsair h100 fits in aerocool rs9. because im planning to buy today.

i came here because i dont want to waste money buying h100 knowing after that it wont fit in.

sorry for being noob here, im observer, i just registered because i really need to ask this question.

anyway, this is the load of my aerocool rs9

Mobo: Asrock Z68 Extreme 7 Gen 3
Processor: Intel i7 2700k unlocked
Memory Card: Gskill Ripjaws x 8gb 4gbx2 DDR3 2133 CL9
Graphics Card: Palit GTX 680 Jetstream
PSU: seasonic m12II 750w

i got h60 right now, i regret of buying this because it doesnt satisfy my needs.

im @ 4.6 Ghz, idle of 38-39c, 67-70 @ full load, so kinda frustrating.

i want to go 4.8, but i think h60 cant handle it anymore, so i planned of buying today an h100.

so please advice me.

thank you.

it means that to install the H100 radiator in the roof, the fan spacing for the 120mm fans
need to sit close to each other (15mm distance between fan holes). from the pictures
of the case they are really far apart. it can be fitted, but some drilling and cutting of the
roof will need to be done, to make the H100 fit.
there really isnt a difference between a 4.6 and 4.8 overclock. those temps are fine with
the H60. what kind of vcore voltage are you using for the 4.6/4.8 OC?

guys,

just got my h100, installed at the top.

here are the results, (seems to be no improvement)

i7 2700k @ 4.6 Ghz

idle - 38-39c
full load (prime 95) - 70-73c

im frustrated since the h60 do better than these results, same clock.

i hope it is just mounting problem.

guys, please recommend me a video on how to install it properly and the best thermal paste.

hoping for advise.

thank you.

Maybe a re-seat of the cpu block. (or you may not have tightened it enough)

If they haven't changed it for whatever reason, they use Shin-Etsu thermal compound...some of the best in the business.

Make sure the tubing isn't kinked. Also, make sure you plug the pump into the CPUFAN header, and check in bios to make sure it's running at full speed.

yes, someone advised me that the pre applied thermal paste is the best.

all checked, pump plugged into the cpufan header, tubing, not kinked too much, it is just bend (not too much of course, it needs to be bend since i just have small casing).

screws, i just rechecked it, too much tightened, so i loosen it not that much.

current results:

@4.6 Ghz
H100 @ full speed

prime 95 for 4 mins:

338

its frustrating. . . someone help me please.

thanks

did you plug your H100 contoller single wire into the CPU_FAN header?
you are showing no RPM for CPU_FAN. if you did, that should read 2000-2200rpm. but reading
your AxTU, your pump is not spinning. recheck in BIOS CPU_FAN for 2000-2200rpm.
pretty good temps for a non-functioning pump.
