Re: [Cooling] Thoughts on Corsair H100? from looking at the link that FastEddie posted I'd say I don't think that the H100 will fit in your case
the hoses look to be to short to run to the front of the case (could be wrong) and the back doesn't have the space
scratch that the front doesn't look to even be an option with only 5x 5.25 bays
the back only has 1x 120 and you'd need space for 2

I love how you custom water cooling people ALWAYS come in a thread and say GO CUSTOM ITS BETTER! when the OP never even said anything about going custom water cooling in his OP.
Shit happens in every post I've seen, here and at overclock.net, its pretty damn annoying.
There is a reason people don't do custom water loops, its a pain in the ass to do if your a new comer to it and it requires maintenance or if you ever need to change out parts, that requires draining the tank-refilling and really just a pain in the ass.
The watercooler from Corsair (H series) requires NO maintenance and about 3-4 years these will last..more than enough time till a cpu upgrade or a better heatsink comes out.

Can you please stop thread crapping with incorrect info (no reason you need to drain a custom loop to change any part rofl, what you doing draining a CPU loop to change an air cooled GPU)
The op is 100% able to say "I am not interested in a custom loop despite the pros" or something to that nature... you do not need to speak for the OP.
So far you are the ONLY person here complaining about the custom loop vs H100 talk... you want to do that... make a thread, "pros h100 vs custom"

said by infozahoy :If this is what they really used for their test then they really have no clue. 1.25v at stock? Way over volted. 1.45v at 3.6Ghz? Even more ridiculous. I don't care how they mounted a temp sensor there is no way on this planet a 920 at 1.45v is going to run at 72c under load with the stock cooler. How do I know this. I owned a 920 so I know how hot they run. I don't know why they publish this drivel. All it does is confuse people.
As far as the OC... quote from them to lazy to use tags.."For our stock testing our i7 920 will be kept at 2.66 GHz with a minimal 1.25v. For overclocked CPU testing we will be running our i7 920 at 3.6GHz with 1.45v." that answers the how much OC part... also keep in mind they do not use intels temp sensor but they drill a valley into the CPU to place a temp probe.

You have to be really careful, when reading those cooler comparisons and just consider them as relative. Those people have taken to comparing temps in relation to ambient. I don't know why they do this instead of providing core-temps at a certain specific ambient. It is truly confusing.
I agree that a stock Intel cooler would not hold any "130 watt" i7-920 3.6ghz overclock at 72c load temp. Nor do I think anyone believes that the H100 would hold the same overclock load temp at 37.7c. We can only consider the H70 versus H100 as relative to each other. That's why I only mentioned the 4.4c degree improvement in my earler post.
I haven't seen the link for the test Kris provided, nor do I want to wade through the fine-print. But I'm sure somewhere it states "Cooling temp above ambient".
It's probably no different from this type comparison, where these temps compare more favorably to the original post. Unfortunately, this test has only an H50, but no H100 comparison. It's merely posted to illustrate "above ambient".

How's that hopey changey thingy working out for ya?

H100 for cpu
One of those puppies for GPU...
lol... actually I still vote custom but I thought I'd point out that GPU cooler for fun something "new" in the sealed water area.
That is downright awesome.
