Hey folks!

 

I have been looking for a good RGB AiO cooler for quite some time and I think I found it with the h115i pro.

 

Now I would love to get the Crystal 570x but I am not sure whether the h115i will fit on top? I've seen some pictures and been googling for quite some time but it's still quite uncertain for me.

 

Did anyone try this combo out yet or used a similar cooler and can refer to their experience?

No chance. It is front mount, either with 2x140 or behind 3x120 RGB fans. For that specific case, I feel it is worth to go a little extra for the H150i (360mm). It is a natural fit and has a better balance in the case. Check out the pictures in this thread of how to mount the 280mm behind the existing 120mm fans. A lot of people in that thread have 460/570x cases and have the H150i as well.

I would recommend getting our H150i and just mount it in the front. You won't be disappointed.

Well, I also thought about getting the h150i pro but wanted to keep it as the last solution. Running a 280 is a no-go for me as I urgently want to use 3 HD120s in the front, this is like the cases' best feature imo.

 

Aren't the temps gonna suffer from blowing the exhaust air right into the case and directly to the GPU?

Not necessary. As long as you configure the airflow correctly, you shouldn't have any issue.

 

- Most GPU does have zero RPM fan(s) nowadays, so make sure you download a GPU configuration software such MSI Afterburner and set the fan to run at at least 45% at all time to avoid excess heat from building up.

 

- Configure your top as exhaust. (HOT air rises up)

 

- Configure your rear fan as exhaust.

 

- Don't put your computer on a carpet floor.

 

- Clean your computer regularly. (esp. the dust filters.)

I'm also curious about this. I'm building a new setup next month and having trouble deciding if I want a 280 in the top (Mirror Black version is said to support it) or 360 in the front.

 

The setup I have now is a Cooler Master HAF XB. I have the 120 rad in the back in push-pull intake and the stock 3 fans in the front also as intake. This works great, as the open grill sides and top pushes air out, but in a pretty enclosed build like the 570x I'm not sure.

 

Would it be 3 fans as intake on the front of the 360, 2 fans in the top as intake and the rear fan as exhaust? I'd be building in the 570x Mirror Black almost exactly as the video below shows. It's been a while since my last actual tower build.

Hi, can you use the H150i with the fans that come with the 570x? And then usethe fans that come with the H150i as a top and back exhausts?
