orphean Posted February 20, 2013 Share Posted February 20, 2013 Finished my build yesterday which included a H100i and AX760i PSU. My H100i came with the 4-pin PWM fans and the 1.0.5 firmware. I haven't noticed any rattling or odd pump noises at all. One thing that concerned me was the backplate of the H100i was very loose when it was initially installed. It had a lot of 'play' when it was just the standoffs screwed into it. Once I mounted the waterblock and tightened down the thumbscrews though the slack went away and now is very firmly pressed against the back of the motherboard. I didn't need to add any rubber washers or anything else to get it a secure, tight fit. I wasn't expecting the CorsairLink software to work properly since I am running Windows 8 Professional on this build but I'm happy to say that it works fine in my case without having to do anything special. I have both the H100i and the AX760i USB headers plugged into an internal USB 2.0 header expansion board (my mobo only has two USB 2.0 headers) so even in that somewhat nonstandard install it's fine. I'm glad I got a case with a sidewindow, as stupid as it sounds I like looking over and seeing the H100i cycling through its colors next to the Dominator Platinum ram. I was a bit worried about the H100i purchase but decided to take a chance since it is so performant. It looks like Corsair has the kinks worked out at least in my case.
