Default Corsair 300R

Hello i made a new rig with Corsair 300R and i am little disappoint at the moment because if am right i cant use your Hydro Series H100.
When i bought the case i was pretty sure i can combine them.
With a little research i did i see that they don't match together and now am i supposed to use H70?
Right now i use Intel BXRTS2011AC and i hit 41-61c temps.
With some extra fans and if is it possible to upgrade to H70 i will have better temps? I am thinking also buy a solid state drive should i buy a cage or something?
Thank you.

A classic case of PEBCAK.
Corsair clearly markets this case for the air-cooled segment and any quick search of any of the reviews from the usual suspects would have reinforced this... as well as informing you what would -and what would not- fit inside the chassis.

The H70 has been deactivated and replaced with the H70 Core...which does not include any fans -giving you the option to select your own. Check the water-cooled threads for what the majority consider the best fan for providing static pressure and go with those.

____
No need to buy an additional HDD cage...you can screw the SSD(s) into any of the included 4 tool-free 2.5" compatible hard drive bays with the included screws.

Thanks for feedback and sorry for my bad English.
U see my motherboard can't take a good air-cooled fan because i got 8 channels for memory, i use only four thought but the case is small.
Am just waiting for an answer by corsair employment if H70 works with corsair 300r.

Yes, the 300R will work with H60, H70, and H80. The H80 unit have comparable cooling performance with the H100 unit.

Hi there, I was wondering if it is possible to fit a noctua nh d14 within the 300R, I couldnt find any info on the heatsink clearance on the corsair site o tho I could find the noctua height to be 160mm. Any one with this spec could comment on this?
Cheers

Hopefully someone with a similar spec comes along and answers your question but in the meantime... I use a different HSF than yours but can say that with a Hyper 212 Plus -at a height of 158.5mm- I have 13mm of free clearance to the side panel.

The depth of the NH-D14 may come into play -depending on what type of RAM you are using- as the 120mm intake can be raised to clear the DIMMs ...but only so much before it will bump up into the side panel.

Is all about the motherboard and the ram u use.
For example if i buy the H80 am not sure where to mount the 120fan because i use Corsair Vengeance with big heat spreader.

It should fit, but definitely not with X79 board.

Hello I left a few months pass before i buy a proper cooler, with the hope if buy a Cooler from the hydro series now i wont have any problems with the noise and all this stuff people are complaining.
I need your help here, which exactly cpu fan i should order between the H80i , H60 CWCH60 , H60 CW-9060007-WW or H55.
