I'm considering not using the two fans that come with the H100i, and using four SP120's instead, considering the SP120L fans that come with the H100i aren't available for sale. I may do this, or use...

The H100i's fan is only rated at 4.82mm H2O? That's quite a drop from the H100's fan static pressure of 7.7mm H2O...

Thanks for your reply. The P9X79 WS is CEB (12" tall x 10.5" wide), which isn't much of a difference from a regular ATX (12" tall x 9.6" wide). If the motherboard tray is the same size as the C70,...

RAM GUY> Is the top 2 x 120mm fan area shifted to one side on the 200R? From the photographs it looks like it is. I'm hoping I can fit a P9X79 WS board (CEB size) in there w/an H100, without the H100...

The next version of the H100 should have a detached fan controller, that way when it fails, customers don't need to remove the H100 from their CPU to replace it.

I'll be configuring my H100 in push/pull, meaning the fans will intake air from outside the case, blowing inwards. I like this as it represents a positive pressure setup minimising dust, while...

You could, yes, because that connector only outputs the RPM of the pump, so any of your fan connectors would do. But, some if not all boards will complain if you don't plug anything into the CPU_FAN...

The 3-pin connector from the heat-sink is to output the RPM of the pump, and that's all it is for. What you could do is, put that 3-pin connector from the heat-sink into the CPU_FAN header (so you...

The self-contained part is the coolant, which would still exist as it does today. What I'm saying is, simply make the radiator thicker, more reliable pump, and remove the fan controller. So it's...

Maybe a slightly thicker radiator? 30 or 35mm? Also possibly remove the fan controller completely? One less thing to go wrong. Most people have a fan controller or motherboard which can control fans...

So your new H100 replacement has a grinding noise coming from the pump? If so, that doesn't give much hope for the replacement I just received (lot code 122710401).

That, and putting the TIM in a bag which itself is over hot water for a few minutes, to soften up the TIM is a good idea.

Thanks. Is the Dow Corning TIM sold on its own anywhere, in-case of re-mount situations? I've only ever saw Shin-Etsu (X23-7783D) sold individually.

I know spreading Shin Etsu is like trying to spread tar, it's thick and really difficult to spread (unless it's heated). Is Prolimatech PK-3 a good TIM for the H100? That or the Noctua NH-H1?

If you need the adapter brackets, I can send you the ones I have. I use LGA2011 which has the CPU mounting bracket built into the board, meaning the brackets in the H100 kit I've got are un-used.

You mean the LGA1366 black metal stand-offs, hex nut in the middle with screw threads either side? I use LGA2011 and don't use LGA1366, if you like you can have the ones I'm not using.

I think option one is best, with filters over both intake fans. Having air pushed through the radiator instead pulling it through, is more effective.

RAM GUY> Slightly different question. Would rubber or silicon fan mounts work for the H100? I have a few of those, different lengths.
