    Installing the cooling ..... H100i

    Hi again,

    I am trying to complete my first build by myself after i got many bad comments about using a shop doing for my 2nd and 3rd build, but i never did this before and i watched many videos and read manuals but still i don't know all the details, so here i want to ask one question that may help me to finish my build as soon as possible:

    How do i install the fans of the cooling Corsair H100i? And then how do i setup it inside the case [My case is HAF X]? Some said g for pull, some pics i see for push, so do push/pull but i have only 2 fans so i have to go only one way now, i still don't know which is better way to go, any recommendation and steps guide too please?

    You have two options with two fans.

    Pushing cool air into the case.

    Pulling hot air out of the case.

    I like to push cool air from outside over the fins of my radiator and into the case.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    Well, i also like or prefer to do that, i have fans for pulling air out anyway, but honestly speaking, i don' know the direction of push or pull, so only by photo i can understand it, so here are the 2 ways of doing it, which one is the pushing and which one is pull?

    Number 1 is a push configuration because it's pushing the air towards the radiator to cool it and pushing the air out the otherside. And number 2 is a pull configuration because it's pulling air from the outside towards the radiator to cool it.

    Here are some video guides: http://youtu.be/4vk6XfI4BpE

    When I did this I bought 4 noctua NF-F12s and replaced the 200mm fan in the roof of the HAFX with two of the Noctuas (pushing air down into the case through the radiator) and then inside the case the rad right below the fans with the other two Noctuas mounted underneath...pulling air through the rad and blowing it down over the motherboard and GPUs....

    If you have two fans....maybe leave the 200mm in the top of the HAFX and mount the two 120mm fans below the radiator pulling air through....

    I do post photos of my build progress on another site, i just placed the cooler inside the case but still didn't put it on the CPU yet, i am still not sure as in the Cooler manual it says that i don't need to put backplate for LGA2011, and the mobo is 2011 with CPU, so is that correct or i have to put backplate but modify it first?

    If you are using a motherboard with socket LGA 2011, or any AMD based motherboard, then no backplate is required. With these sockets you can use the backplate that is already attached to the board.

    I see, oh no that i didn't check the motherboard from back to see, but the motherboard is Asus Rampage IV Extreme, doesn't that has a one included or doesn't need Corsair H100i backplate?
