Looks cool, Gav. (pun intended) Nice job. Is it working out as you thought it would?

Yeah it's good, really easy to install a dual boot OS and masses of free space in the case. The spinners are slightly warmer but I've bought an 80mm Noctua Redux to replace the stock fan on the FatCage. I'm really impressed, I'll just be even happier when I've sorted the cables out.

Priced out 2 pairs of sp120's and 3-sf140's = 130.us
In my case's cost was 109.00 so it's not hard to see why Corsair sells the loud fans

And I believe I'm one connection short
I believe only 6 connections are on the board :/

The two rad fans connect up to a coupler which plugs into the pump so you don't use up motherboard connections. Unless you want to of course.

I have yet to open the box of the h110i so I don't know how it would hookup
How did you do the push and pull or hook both up to the pump as you say ?

I hooked both up to the pump, it sets fan speed depending on the temperature it's probably the best way to go.

Yea probably so,
I was watching a video yesterday and the guy said not to use the default wiring so you can control all the pumps in one place
Jack says he sets his to high and that's it :/

I'm surprised that smaller version had 2 ports to use 2 fans with unless you spliced or had a double connection hanging around to use to join them together ?

Mike, the cable splits into 2 fan cables, if you use the stock fans. I replaced the fans on mine and am using a fan controller to control the fans. Fan cable splitters are rather common. They will allow you to use 1 header for 2 fans, if the fans don't pull too much power. Mine won't run 2 on 1 cable. I imagine 2 3000RPM fans pull a lot more juice than usual.

Your Corsair Link software does everything you need it to, you`ll love it

Your 2 fans plug into the pump.

But if you had other fans and you ran out of fan headers on the mB you can always use these.

Silverstone CPF01 3.94" PWM Fan Splitter Cable - Newegg.com

I got 2 of these, I have 4 fans in the front, 2 on either side of the hard drive cage, so 2 of them go to chassis fan header #1 and the other 2 go to chassis fan header # 2

Corsair H80i Problems
Got a Corsair H80i installed on a ASUS P8Ztt-V Pro board with a 3770K, all stock settings except for RAM set to specs. Connected the Corsair Link dingle berry cable and fans to the pump Y-connector. I downloaded the Link software from the Corsair site so I assume it's the newest version....

Used way too much thermal paste
This isn't that important, all it is is that I'm worried. It was my first time round putting thermal paste onto a cpu, and i sort of used an entire 3.5g syringe of arctic silver 5 underneath a zalman9700. Yes some did come over the sides, wiped it off, I'm guessing there is a layer inbetween...
