    Ah OK, I have the colored version behind my TV and I thought the light looked way warmer on your picture.

    Might have something to do with the color of my walls, but I can't really tell. Light, whether cold or not, tend to look alot warmer in my room for some reason.

    That's really slick looking.

    One question: Isn't your H80 radiator installed upside down? It's recommended to mount tubes on the bottom, no?

    Thank you! Your eyes are sharp, it actually is upside down, but then again, that depends on how you define upside down :P With the early versions of the H80 there was a problem with the pump not beeing able to pump the water around if the radiator weren't mounted the other way around. But that has been solved and I prefer having the hoses a bit above the GPU, due to heat and so on

    Well, I just built a new computer ~2 weeks ago, and it included an H80i. Since its the first non air cooled system I've ever built, I went over reviews / instructions / etc closely. I just remembered the "mount the radiators with the tubes on the bottom" bit.

    I don't ever remember reading about the H80 (initially) having problems pumping from the bottom, but I'm by no means an expert!

    Here's an update of my rig built last year. Details in my signature.
    All images found here

    Rig prior to swap



    Rig after swap to Silverstone FT02 Fortress. I definitely cut it close on space with my Phanteks Cooler. I probably have less than an inch of space between the window and the top of my fans when mounted.







    I am in love with this case, regardless of the fact that it did not come with a manual or the SSD bracket. Have my SSD rigged in back with some zipties. Hard to complain, got it while it was on sale and have a mail-in rebate.

    Also just picked up my replacement mouse for my dying logitech G500. Not quite sure how I managed it, but it's definitely dying. Picked up my Corsair M60 for $15 after mail-in rebate. This is a beast of a mouse. Corsair continues to impress me with their peripherals.

    Future stuff for my rig..
    Individual sleeving of my cables, probably white.
    A simple LED strip style solution to add some lighting. Nothing crazy, as I'm not usually a fan of LED's. However, I can't resist myself this time around with this windowed case.



    Here's a recent build I did for a friend. Cost just over $800 during the weekend of Black Friday/Cyber Monday

    The cooler is too big that if I mount side way, the fans will hit the ram. I forgot to put on my 2nd fan of the cooler in the picture. Should I just forget the 2nd fan and put it side way and have the other fan point toward the back?

    Fan should either be pushing air towards the back or towards the top, if you're going to have it this way. I doubt that fan is running in pull right now.

    This is my current layout with side fans blowing air in.

    Put an air on the bottom then, you'll be shocked how much it helps your temps, because a fan only pulling from a heatsink like that, barely does anything in comparison. Hell you could just switch that fan if you don't want to be running 2.

    Also, more fans taking air out than in, equals, if I recall right, negative pressure, which equals dust. Turn the fans taking air out down to their minimum and the one in to its max to curb this.

    I'm confused what this means. Are you trying to suggest that push is more effective than pull? It makes no difference.

    Typically coolers with a fan doing push have done better than ones doing pull, from what I've seen/read/heard.

    I don't know anyone who swears by their liquid cooling loops having the rads with pull fans only.

    Usually it's push or push+pull.
