insuruto Posted November 3, 2013 Share Posted November 3, 2013 Hey Folks, First let me start off by saying I purchased the H100 for a push/pull configuration in my NZXT Phantom full tower case knowing that it would NOT allow enough clearance for my Corsair Vengance 2x4gb sticks of ddr3. That being said I simply removed the memory heatsinks and it fit. All this was done back in January of this year. These past two weeks I have upgraded my gaming rig with an Asus z87-pro mobo, Intel core i7 4770k cpu, and seasonic 860w Platinum psu. Somehow after doing hours of research what pc hardware I was going to purchase, I failed to take into consideration the h100 heatsink compatibility. I simply removed it from my old mobo and installed it on my new one. Today I read up on the h100 only to find that it is NOT compatible with the LGA 1150 socket I am currently using. However with HWMonitor running I get an average of 22-25C at idle load. I tried to OC my cpu through bios and I get BSOD almost everytime around 4.3-4.6 Would the h100 incompatibility cause an issue with overclocking if it's not showing abnormal temps at idle load? Should I just get the h100i and stop being cheap? LOL. I wonder if corsair would take my old h100 as I can't seem to find it new anywhere online, only refurbished. Corsair doesn't sell it anymore, wonder if it was recalled. Mine is loud at startup and quiets down a little but still semi loud at idle. Any input is greatly appreciated, Thanks!
