Georgios Posted August 19, 2013 Share Posted August 19, 2013 Hello guys !! I have some questions about my new build (the one on my system specs) and I need some help to clarify them.. Bear with me please.. Firstly let me say that I got the H100i for cooling my i7 4770k.. ok, now the questions: 1) The Carbide 500R has a switch in the front panel that controls the speed of the 3 fans (2 front 120mm and 1 side 200mm).. Can someone please tell me, which position of the switch is the fastest? I cant see any difference in rotation speeds.. 2) I have the 2 front 120mm fans and the side 200mm fan as an intake. The rear 120mm as an exhaust. The H100i is on top and is an exhaust too. Is that the optimal configuration? 3) I am currently at stock speeds for the cpu and XMP-profile1 (2400MHz)for the memory. Idling I get temps around 40-42C and on full load around 75-78C (using realtemp 3.70) with room temp around 25-27C.. Do you think its normal or do I have to reseat my H100i? Or have it as an intake? (the fans of the H100i are in performance mode). 4) I am getting 2 sp120 pwm high performance fans to try a push/pull configuration (if it fits) or replace the stock ones of the H100i.. Is it worth it? 5) I have installed the latest corsair link software (ver. 2.4.4948). The temps of the hard drives disappear and reappear sometimes. Current firmware of H100i is 1.0.5 and Hydro USB version 2.0.0 (options->devices tab). Do I need to upgrade firmware to 1.0.7? I don't have any rattling/noise issues.. Thanks guys and sorry for the extra long post :D: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
