dokelly07 Posted February 28, 2013 Share Posted February 28, 2013 I am running my H100i in a pull config - but otherwise installed as the blog says to. I cant do a push/pull config with this case and m/b combo. I have the stock fans on top pulling air out. I have flipped them to intake and things got hotter, by around 3 degrees - thus my reasoning for running as exhaust. My concern is this...with the removable mesh squashed down and clipped into place, it presses on the fans. I'm not really worried about that, but the noise from having a grill so close to the fans is pretty annoying. Anything above idle and you can hear air rushing through the grill holes. If I remove it, all is quiet again. I am thinking of just running metal fan grills instead of the top mesh, or cutting holes into the mesh where the fans are. I know several have RMA'd their grills hoping to get one with more room. I really dont think its a defect. Theres no way a flush grill will allow any clearance above the fans, and even if they did leave a bit - the proximity of the fans to the plastic grill is what is generating the noise. I would need a grill that gave at least an inch of clearance - and thats not happening... Suggestions from anyone else running this with a 600T...?? Thanks.
