quick H100i mounting question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so i just purchased an h100i to replace my hyper 212 evo in my C70, and i was wondering which way is commonly seen as the "best" way. im planning on mounting it on the roof of the case and have it exhaust air out. my main question is if i should have the fans on the top of the radiator pulling air through it (making it easier for dust removal off the radiator) or should they should be on the bottom pushing air through the radiator and then out of the case. i'm not sure if one grants lower temps than the other or if one is just uselessly ineffective or not. thanks for the help :P

Have the fans mounted on top the radiator, it doesn't really affect temps. Mounting it on the top will make it easier to clean the dust off your radiator.

Corsair recommends to use the radiator as an intake, for example on the front of the case. This way the fans push fresh air onto the radiator, instead of pushing the hot air inside the case, throw the radiator. I personally dont think it would make a lot of difference, but its up to you.

True but depend on your case air intake/exhaust and internal component temperature level.If you have a good exhaust then its a good idea, otherwise you are building internal temperature and that's bad for other components.
