Windows 7: H100 Installation

I've tried with both directions. It depends on your case the flow of air you want to create in the case. I find.........I find that the best is to have the fans blowing case air over the radiator and exhausting through the top of the case. The reason for this is to create a flow from the front intakes and side intakes and exhaust out the rear case fan and top via the rad.

Alan is right, it depends on your case. I tried it both ways and had better results blowing outside air through the radiator and into the case. But, there is no argument. Try it both ways and see which way gives you better temps. A lot of people have tried and had better results each way. There is no right or wrong, just which way is best for you and your case.

See this video from Corsair. They recommend taking air in through the radiator providing you have rear fan to exhaust the hot air. See the part on the H100.

Cooler air sounds like it makes sense and I was shocked to net a higher average case and core temp with my four fans pushing more air into the case and this was my thoughts. That made (2) front 120's (4) 120's rad. (1) 240 on side all bringing air in.......or trying to, against my (1) 120 rear (2) 5770 gpu's (2) 50mm's rear below the gpu's. I think that I created too much positive pressure which confused the case air flow. So though it made total sense maybe more changes like making the front fans exhausts? The more I thought about the flow I was looking to create the more sense the exhausting hotter air out the top and back made with fresh cool air in from front and sides. As I mention over and over, "Your Mileage May Vary" ! Experiment and observe and tell you spirited family and friends that you appreciate their input but in the end air flow over this superior cooler is all you're looking for and the 1 or 2 degree difference makes little changes, but the air flow through the case helps cool all components and not just the CPU !

Its all about balance and air flow. Corsair likes cool air coming in through the radiator as this is best for it. BUT they also say you have to have the proper air flow to exhaust the hot air. On my system I have the Antec 620 which is a single fan radiator. It is located near the top and exhausts out the back. My intake fans are as follows: 2 120 bottom/front, 1 140 on bottom, 2 140 on side. My exhaust are: 1 120 on the radiator and 2 140 on top. I use a fan controller to lower the intakes a bit to balance the air flow and looking at getting air filters for my side fans which will reduce their airflow by 15%. With all these new cases that have a lot of fan mounts, a fan controller can come in handy.

New CPU cooler. H100, H80, H70 Core with custom fans or H2o 620?
Hi guys, I'm trying to decide between an Antec H2o 620, an H70 core with custom fans, an H80 and an H100. I'm running an 8210 Oc'ed to 4300K and do play some demanding games. My case comes prepared to install a 240 mm radiator, hence the H100 is an option, but I think it might be overkill and...

H100 pump makes somewhat loud grinding noise
Just finished installing my upgrades to my computer, including a nice new H100, and it would appear my hopes for a silent PC one day have been blown out of the water, with this cooler at least. The pump unit is making a sound like...well...a loud pump really, a constant grinding/buzzing/humming...

I may just be the first on the block with new H100
I will be setting this new Corsair H100 cooler up over the weekend in a push pull configuration. I comes with (2) 120mm as you can see and I'll speed control those as exhaust fans and run two Noctua's NF-P12's as pushers wide open. Hoping the mobo won't need to come out and I can just work from the...
