    Running Dual Corsair AIO's setup

    I've just realised I have a picture of my system on my phone. Ain't anything overly fancy, and half of it is used... But it is mine and I couldn't be happier. I do have another 2.5" HDD to put on top of the PSU should. Just gotta get the time to install it.

    Running Dual Corsair AIO's setup

    Thank you so much for all your help!! When I get home, I will upload a few pictures of my current system without the G12 installed as I currently low on funds simply because I've got many bills decided to come out at the same time. Currently trying to save enough to get the G12, H80i V2, Noctua 92mm fan, GPU to CPU fan adapter, fan Y-Splitter (So I can connect the VRM fan to the radiator fan) and a internal USB splitter or hub because I'm out of internal USB headers. That's going to come up around the £150+ mark. I've got a load of different screws in my tool kit, I'll take a picture of that when I get home too. See if there is any there you would recommend I try when I do eventually purchase the parts. I just gotta hope that now I can fit it all into my system. Lol

    Thank you so much!!! Just to make sure I am seeing things correct, you're not using the screws that come with the H80i, right? You found them and used them, and that's because the factory ones were to long? Also, you're using the Asetek bracket on the pump, and attaching that to the G12, right? No issues there, such as having to use a copper shim or anything along those lines. Did your GPU come with a backplate? If so, did you find anyway of possibly mounting that other than having it just sitting there? I personally don't want to loose my backplate because it looks awesome. 1 more thing, did you use any heatsinks at all? I know I am diffidently going to use some for the VRAM chips, but possibly the VRMs. But as you said, your VRMs seam to be fine without them, so I might go without it. Would it also be possible to explain and show how you've got everything connected to the G12? By this, I mean the 2 fans, radiator, USB and stuff like that. I can't really find that in the pictures. Once again, thank you so much! I will hopefully be buying them later this month.

    Running Dual Corsair AIO's setup

    That's a massive help!!! I don't suppose I could be a pain and ask for a closer look at the way you've mounted the pump to the G12 and the GPU? I am really tempted to get that, but I am very worried I won't have the screws to mount it, unlike yourself. Also, what temperatures do you reach while stressing the card while overclocked? Also, is there any way you can see the temperatures of your memory and/or VRMs? I would love to see those temps! By the looks of things for the H55, both the fan and pump have their own fan header to plug into the motherboard if installed for a CPU cooler. Does both fans for the H80i connect to the pump and that gets its power from the USB? Seeing a H80i installed to a G12 really gives me good hopes that I could buy one and install it without much issue, but I am still worried to buy it just in case it does not fit, so any more pictures of the mounting or any more information you could gimme would be a MASSIVE help! I do NOT want to buy the H55 simply because it will not be enough to cool it to the 60°c I am aiming for. I know my card can overclock like a boss when the temperatures allows it, because when I open HeavenBenchmark from a cold start, it will boost up to 2150MHz or higher (I think I've seen 2200MHz at one point) so I know with low enough temps, it will OC like a badass! Sorry if I am being a pain, it's just that you're the only person I've been able to talk to that has a H80i installed on a G12, and I need as much info as I can get to help me, because I don't want to have to try and return it.

    Running Dual Corsair AIO's setup

    If you could post a few pics, that would be awesome! Because I am using an Nvidia GPU, do you think it would be as difficult to get the H80i installed? I am going to be going with the H55 unless I know the H80i V2 will fit without much issue. I really do not want to use the H55 because the radiator is so thin which would quite badly lower the cooling potential. Also, did you use any heatsinks for the VRMs or VRAM? I am planning on buying heatsinks for them, but I can't find one for the VRMs. Oh, and how did you connect the pump, both radiator fans and the G12 fan? This is one of the things which is kinda panicking me... I'm going to be getting a SATA powered fan hub and hopfully connect everything to that and have a GPU to motherboard fan adapter and have them all run off the fan input, I just don't know how well that'll work.

    Running Dual Corsair AIO's setup

    This isn't exactly related to the topic, but are you using a NZXT G12 with a H80i V2 for your RX580? If so, how did the installation go, because that isn't meant to be compatible. I'm going to be installing the G12 onto my overheating GTX 1080 Classified but I am stumped on what cooler to get. I am planning on going with the H55 but I am really worried it is not thick enough to support the heat outputted by a overclocked 1080 that reaches 82°c while gaming. Sorry this isn't related to the topic at hand.

    Help setting up H55 for GPU and CLC 280 for CPU

    -_-' I meant, what fan hub? I know that would resolve the CPU issue, but would it solve the GPU as easy? Also, is there a cheap fan hub that is powered by SATA?

    Help setting up H55 for GPU and CLC 280 for CPU

    Could you go into a bit more detail?
  9. Hi guys, I'm starting to panic! I've recently decided to upgrading the cooling of my CPU and GPU with AIOs and now I am starting to panic that I won't be able to connect it all together. My issue is somehow I want to have my EVGA CLC 280 in Push/Pull, but since the fans run of a single fan header off the motherboard, this isn't a good idea. Is there any advice you guys could give me here? Now, the harder part which is mainly making me panic: My GPU (EVGA GTX 1080 Classified) when cooled by the stock cooler will hit 82°c while gaming and 92°c while doing synthetic tests. Because of this, I have decided to pull the trigger and purchase the NZXT G12, Noctua 92mm fan and the Corsair H55 for the AIO. My problem is how the f**k am I meant to power it all? Since I want to have the radiator in Push/Pull, that would mean I will need 4 fan headers to power them all, but I want them to run off the GPU fan speed. I am completely stumped on how I can do this. It would be stupid to run them off my motherboard case fan headers. So, please share your experience with using the G12 and how you connected everything. I need as much advice as I can get my hands on. - Joe

    H55 enough to cool overclocked GTX 1080 with NZXT G12?

    Yeah, but that is if they fall off while I'm next to the PC. What I am now thinking about doing is running with VRAM heatsinks for now and then adding VRM later, mainly because they're easier to get hold of.

    H55 enough to cool overclocked GTX 1080 with NZXT G12?

    Fair enough. Now comes the problem of trying to have them stay there without being unstuck and falling off. Even with thermal pads or thermal tape, with the heating and cooling, it will eventually become weak and fall off. This is what I am worried about. I mean, the GPU will pretty much be up-side-down which allows the heatsinks to fall off really easy and I don't know anyway to secure them enough so they won't fall off. I've looked about, but I can't find anything anywhere that gives me the slightest bit of help on securing those heatsinks to stop them from falling off overtime, but also allowing me to take them off in the future if the card dies and needs to be RMAed.

    H55 enough to cool overclocked GTX 1080 with NZXT G12?

    Oh, phew! I just seams that my already quite heavy overclocked GPU runs very warm and I am kinda scared a simple 120mm won't be enough. Also, due to the age of H55, I feel that it is quite old and wouldn't keep up with the newer ones, but unfortunately they're not compatible. Also, whats your take on putting heatsinks on the VRAM and VRMs?
  13. Hi guys, My GPU (EVGA GTX 1080 Classified) is somewhat overheating with the normal heatsink (82°c gaming, 92°c+ synthetic) so I am going to be installing the NZXT G12 with a H55. Only thing I am worried about, is the H55 going to be enough to cool it? At the moment, the GPU is overclocked and will hit 2050MHz while gaming and will struggle to keep 2000MHz while doing synthetic loads. My case (NZXT S340 Elite) has plenty of airflow (2x SP140 for intake and 2x AF120 for exhaust) with an ambient temperature of 25°c. I plan on installing the radiator on the rear-exhaust of the case, but I am very worried it wont be enough cooling power to cool the GPU. I am also worried about the VRMs and VRAM chips. I do plan on buying heatsinks for them, but I do not know what to get. Also, is there any way I can keep the backplate installed? Really hoping I can... If there is any more information you need, feel free to comment and I will get back ASAP.

    Best 120mm AIO for NZXT G12?

    It's the "almost" which gets me. Since my heatsink already is not enough, and that is with every fan running at 100%, I am after as much cooling as I possibly can get. And with the H75, that needs to be the older one, right? The newer one won't fit because it is not round, I think. What about that H70 Core I've seen? That's extra thick and I believe it has the Asetek mounting. If I could get that, would that be a decent cooler? - EDIT - I've just looked and the H70 Core is no longer available. What's the difference between the H75 and the H55? I'm now feeling the H75. If it really won't make as much of a difference as you're telling me, I hopefully will still be able to keep the temperatures 60°c or under. Only thing now is getting those heatsinks for the VRM and VRAM. Since I live in the UK, any chance could you have a look for me? I'm currently at work and amazon and ebay are blocked (LTT and TomsHardware are not blocked funny enough)

    Best 120mm AIO for NZXT G12?

    That Thermaltake one is not 120mm though... I need to have it 120mm so I can put it in the exhaust fan slot of my case, and I am also wanting it to be extra thick to support the heat given by my GPU a little better.
