Best fan/radiator placement on thermaltake chaser A71?

First time building, and I purchased the Thermaltake Chaser A71 which I knew can fit the cooling set up I bought which is the Corsair H100i. I plan on placing it on the top exhaust, but I am not sure where to place the fans. I can either put the radiator above the top grate, and then I can screw the fans on the bottom of it, or I can place the fans on the grate and the radiator on bottom. I am not sure which would be most efficient as far as cooling goes.

On this review they place the fans on top of the radiator but both below the grate, but it seems like there is plenty of space on top of it to put the fans. Having more space in the chassis would be nice. http://www.overclockers.com/thermaltake-chaser-a71-full-tower-case-review/

Thanks!

    I will definitely look into those, however that does not really answer my question as far as the fan placement goes.
  3. look the best i would suggest wud sound wierd to u but is really effected its tried and tested

    put the rad fans in exhaust and turn the rear fan to intake and use a good high cfm fan like the 140mm version of the same fan this wud provide u with fresh air to rad


    other than this

    sides exhaust for gpu hot air bottom and front intake

  6. Hello Warcon, did you find out how to install the H100i in the Chaser A71. I have one but when I trie to install it the fans block the RAM slots and I'm unable to put mi corsair dominator platinum. I tried to install the corsair H100i inside top with the fans above the radiator.

    Regards,
