    Before we proceed, I think you need to check you're aware of what you're saying (the H100 shares the throne with a lot of coolers, most of which are huge as hell), and who you're talking to (because I sure as hell don't have a H100 lol).

    Yea I meant Rickz, not you. Replying in-between training so I got a bit confused.

    You seem to misunderstand my point, again. I'm not saying the H100 doesn't perform well, I'm saying that cheaper air-coolers perform better are quiter and don't require modifications/extra parts to perform.

    Get it? H100 = good, combined with good coolers and a relatively big wallet. A few other AIR coolers, are better. Visit HardOCP for more info.

    My computer for the next couple months at least. After 7 years or so, I'm finally switching back to Intel, so I'm going to be rebuilding everything. Wires are kind of a mess, but when you're lazy that's about as good as it gets.

    Holy chunk-o of CPU coolers, it's practically a giant blue BRICK that could rival a D14 in size >_<

    You should probably clean off some dust though, on both the rigs and the surface they're on

    I haven't seen that one before myself. I am curious as to know how well it cools compared to the original Frio and the Frio Advanced. I used to have a Frio, with a stock AMD X6 1055T I was rocking 22 Celsius in my old Xclio Windtunnel case at stock speed, I get like mid to high 20's with my H80 <_<

    Congrats to the 8 fools who made the ignore list, your ignorance knows no bounds, bravo!

    Beautiful specs, was that laptop released just last week or something o_O
    I really like how the lid has no logo or anything on it. Just matte black awesomeness.

    I had the shop install the cooler, because of the previously mentioned laziness, but the way its installed the intake fan is very close to the video card, which runs very hot, about 55 just sitting. With it sucking in all that hot air, the cpu sits at about 35 at 30% with a small OC, and sits between 40 and 45 at 100%. One of these days I either need to stop being lazy, or take it back to the shop, if it can be turned.

    You know you can reorient the heatsink so the fans are away from the graphics card right? All you have to do is remove the mounts and face it toward the rear exhaust fan on the case so the fans pull air from inside the case and push it directly to the exhaust fan on the case.

    Edit:

    Here's what it would look like.

    Check the black levels and if it has IPS glow.
    Deep Blacks pretty much ensures it's not IPS.

    IMO this is actually the preferred orientation since you have a top exhaust fan. Air goes where it's pushed, even around obstacles thanks to Bernoulli's Principle. Having the fans pulling up air from the video cards will result in that air being pushed straight up and out of the case whereas orienting the fans vertically will leave the heat from the video cards a little more static.

    A little OT, but I never thought of it like that, but it does make sense.
