When to install AIO in a build

Simple questions : what is the easiest way to install aio cooler (im using corsair h100i)? Should I install motherbord into case first or put the radiator in first then put motherboard in and connect pump.

 

Side question if anyone knows a good rad&fan setup in corsair carbide spec omega that would be helpful

I would normally install all of the hardware (back plate etc) on the mobo first, then put the mobo with CPU and RAM on it in the case, and then add the rad and connect to CPU.

Steve from GamersNexus installs the pump onto the CPU, then puts the motherboard in, then does the radiator onto the case.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

The way my friend and I did it (same cooler btw) was install the pump over the CPU first, then we put the motherboard in the case and installed the radiator. Depends tho

This is usually the easiest, so you don’t have to fiddle with tiny screws in hard to reach places more than once, you only have to do it when mounting the rad. Also put the fans on the rad before youinstall it

My Build, v2.1 --- CPU: i7-8700K @ 5.2GHz/1.288v || MoBo: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E Gaming || RAM: 4x4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 2666 14-14-14-33 || Cooler: Custom Loop || GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC Black, on water || PSU: EVGA G2 850W || Case: Corsair 450D || SSD: 850 Evo 250GB, Intel 660p 2TB || Storage: WD Blue 2TB || G502 & Glorious PCGR Fully Custom 80% Keyboard || MX34VQ, PG278Q, PB278Q

Audio --- Headphones: Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX || Amp: Schiit Audio Magni 3 || DAC: Schiit Audio Modi 3 || Mic: Blue Yeti

 

[Under Construction]

 

My Truck --- 2002 F-350 7.3 Powerstroke || 6-speed

My Car --- 2006 Mustang GT || 5-speed || BBK LTs, O/R X, MBRP Cat-back || BBK Lowering Springs, LCAs || 2007 GT500 wheels w/ 245s/285s

 

The Experiment --- CPU: i5-3570K @ 4.0 GHz || MoBo: Asus P8Z77-V LK || RAM: 16GB Corsair 1600 4x4 || Cooler: CM Hyper 212 Evo || GPUs: Asus GTX 750 Ti, || PSU: Corsair TX750M Gold || Case: Thermaltake Core G21 TG || SSD: 840 Pro 128GB || HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB

 

R.I.P. Asus X99-A motherboard, April 2016 - October 2018, may you rest in peace. 5820K, if I ever buy you a new board, it'll be a good one.

Tried that on mine, felt like I needed a third hand just to hold everything and get it placed properly. A friend ended up helping me with the rad. 

 

Going to be setting up something new tomorrow. Think I might just mount them both separately and then attach the cooler to the MB after its all mounted.
