    If you don't hear that, you're deaf :P
    Considering how much I hard turn up my sound just to be able to hear it, I don't think it's that loud. Definitely seems like it be less annoying then the two fans on my A70, one fan was quiet but the 2nd fan turns it into a damn turbine....and I deal with that, so that seems eh.

    It was an issue with the fan controller circuitry not powering the fans properly, caused them to grind/whine. It can be avoided by not plugging the fans into the Corsair unit at all (a lot of people do this :P) or RMA'ing the unit. I'd be shocked if Corsair hadn't fixed the issue quite a while ago, although there may still be some stray bad units floating around retailers and not much can be done about that...

    They still didn't fix the issue, they've been promising people coming with a new firmware or new fans for like 3 months. The first firmware was 1.0.0 which was working okay but the fans were rattling or the pump was grinding at the quiet profile so they brought the 1.0.4 fw which solved those issues but as reward the high pitch noise >.<

    Someone might remember this guy.



    First he was quite fat. Three slots, to be exact. Then he went single slot cooler using two PCI slots. Now he's back to triple slots again. Boo!

    And for some reason, imgur was bonkers there and wouldn't give me the link for the thumbnails. Wtf.

    Yeah, imgur went a bit mad for some reason. I clicked 'Large thumbnail' and copy-pasted the normal link. After posting I spotted that the link hadn't been changed from the original version at all, so it was linking the full image. Don't know what was up with that...

    Got it fixed manually though. :P

    Had to rip open my tower to pull a failed HDD, so I figured while I have it gutted I'll do some better cable management.

    Activate High Res Photos (borrowed my Dad's Canon EOS T3i)




    It's nowhere near as clean and surgical as a lot of the cases displayed in this thread but it no longer looks like a complete rats nest either.

    Then I realized I'd never posted pictures of my new case:





    Enjoy.

    Set your H80 in pull, temps will definitely be lower...you've got more than enough top exhaust there :P

    I'd rather sooner remove the fans in the roof, or flip them around. Would get some fan filters if doing the second...

    Also, the Corsair logo is upside-down on the H80 block

    I dont think it will fit the other way around. The tubes will get into all sorts of very wierd positions if you force it to so that the corsair logo is the right way.

    It's not an H80 it's just a 50 (the 80 has a square water block, mines an older model 50 anyways) and ya it's upside down it was the only way it would install without kinking the hoses. Id have put it at the top but my motherboard is so close to the case edge there isn't enough room for push/pull. Also it's in the orientation that's shown to keep the hoses out of my top fans.

    Tops as intake with the 50 exhausting, positive pressure setup? Could work, but ya I'd need some filters my room gets dusty. I could re-seat it the proper way up and stick the rad at the bottom next to the PSU. Not sure the hoses would be long enough thou.

    What fans are those on your H100i? They don't look like the supplied corsair fans. Nice build btw

    Is the Samsung also 120Hz? I've heard some people having trouble with running 120Hz+60Hz displays.

    See it's powered off a different video card entirely... I'm talking from the same card.
