Windows 7: H100 Installation

H100 Installation

I can't get my H100 Corsair CPU cooler installed. I have the right screws but the if I use the screws mentioned in the manual guide, the cooler won't fit ontop of the screws because one side is too thick. If I use the thinner part of the screw it won't touch the CPU. I've been stuck on this for an hour.

Can I see a picture of what you are up against? I have 4 fan p/p set up to the top of my case and I'll have a better idea with a picture of the case and what your facing. Are you going to run the two stock or additional fans and is it intake or exhausting through the top?

It's the back plate. I can't get it on. The manual states to use the LGA 2011 screws, this screw has a short end and a long end. The short part of the screw won't allow the CPU cooler to fit snug on the CPU, if I use the longer part of the screw the back plate won't work.

I'm not going to install the back plate that came with H100, I'm going to use the one on the motherboard.

AMD or Intel?

Intel. The back plate that came with the 100 won't fit, using the proper screws any way I try, it won't work. It works perfectly using the back plate already installed on the motherboard.

I hope there won't be any short-circuit or anything !

This is where spec's would be helpful. Did you check, does your cpu fall into this cat?
AMD AM2, AMD AM3, Intel LGA 1155, Intel LGA 1156, Intel LGA 1366, Intel LGA 2011, Intel LGA 775

I tried all the screws, for LGA 2011. The backplate that is pre-installed that comes with the motherboard works, if I try to install the backplate that comes with H100, no screws work. I spent (2) hours trying, literally, time goes fast

So removing the oem backplate and installing the Corsair doesn't work. But leaving the oem backplate and it does. Then use the oem back place and see if you can make it work. All you are trying to do is get a nice even pressure on the pump down to the cpu....as you understand. Not sure why you are having issues. Get up walk outside, take a breath and then sit back down and sort it out and or your options.

I'm running out to do some quick shopping. If you need a custom length bolt to make this work with the oem plate then take the bolts that work to the hardware store and get longer or shorter ones. Tip: if you buy two nuts that go with the bolts, thread them on and have to cut down the bolt to length then when you back the nuts off after cutting with a hack saw then the nuts re-thread the ends.
Back in a bit !

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 will be setting this new Corsair H100 cooler up over the weekend in a push pull configuration.
