Windows 7: Overclock

Im looking at either Corsair Hydro Series H110i GT High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 280mm - Newegg.com Or NZXT Kraken X61 RL-KRX61-01 280mm All-In-One Water / Liquid CPU Cooling Solution - Newegg.com. Leaning towards the nzxt one after looking at some reviews and tests even though they are very close. Anyone have any opinions on either of these. Also would you suggest with either of these to change the fans and put my cougar ones on the coolers? Fans COUGAR CF-V14HB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 14CM Silent Cooling Fan (Black) - Newegg.com

Hi,
Well yea a few of us have gone with the H110GT and added 4 sp140 fans on it for a pull and push flow to it
Works good so far Corsair pretty good the corsair link isn't all that hot so you might look into that and or not use the corsair link part and just hook the fans up to the mobo or similar controller
Which I might get a controller for the fans instead of the corsair link crapware.

So 2 fans blowing up through the radiator and 2 fans pulling up through the radiator? How much extra clearance in case would i need for push pull config? I think i'm going to go with the NZXT after looking at some benchmarks it surpasses the corsair h110gt. I have a question on placement i can fit a Front 2 x 140 or 3 x 120mm Top 2 x 140 or 3 x 120mm and supports 240mm, 280mm, 360mm Radiators on top and front. If I place on the top position would I have it blowing up through case and if i put in front position it would be pulling air into case correct? If put in front would it not heat the air being pulled into case? What is the best position to install the radiator?

I would put the radiator in the top position to take advantage of natural temperature convection. However, that may mean not having enough clearance inside the case for a push-pull configuration. What I did with mine was to put the radiator and push fans inside the case, and mount the pull fans on top. I have some with pretty blue leds and it doesn't look that bad. Sort of gives you a pseudo Steampunk look. lol.

You can see the pull fans mounted on on the top of the case at the top of the picture below. This is before I dressed the fan wires.

Looks like i have plenty of room for a push pull config on the top of my case without any clearance issues.

Excellent. If you have the clearance, the top is definitely a good choice to put the rad.

Yep I had to put mine on the front because the top was way too tight (= I should of gotten the 240mm) for wiring to the top of the board and the hoses were to close to the disk burner and my case I only had 2 slots on the top front so I couldn't easily move them down

I believe rads are best as intakes pushing and pulling fresh air from the outside apposed to pulling hot case air through them as a exhaust but plenty of people do use them as exhaust without issue.
