Aldiesel18 Posted August 8, 2013 Share Posted August 8, 2013 Hello everyone! I'm building my first computer and have a Corsair 500 r case. I have bought a h100i cooler and need some help deciding how to mount it to get a good balance with my other fans. I have kept the two stock led light intake fans in the front of the case but have replaced all the others with the corsair 120mm sp quiet edition fans. The one at the bottom is intake. There are two intake fans on side door for the graphics card. There is the exhaust fan in the back. That leaves me so far with a 5 to 1 intake/exhaust fan ration This means that the top the two top ones will have to be exhaust to be able to get a good balance correct? So I think I'm left with four options as far as placement of the h100 is concerned. Which of these do you guys recommend? 1. Mount the cooler inside of the case with the exhaust fans on top. 2. Mount the cooler inside of the case with the exhaust fans at the bottom 3. Mount the cooler outside of the case with the exhaust fans at top 4. Mount the cooler inside of the case with the exhaust fans at the bottom inside of the case Or do you guys recommend intake and that I switch some other fans around? Thanks in advance Also sorry if I sound like a noob :laughing: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
