Cpu Water Cooler Radiator Configuration (H100i) (Intake Or Exhaust)

My Part List -- http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3hlBx

My Case is Corsair 750D
Im going to be using 2x140 intake,1x140 exhaust,Top 2x120 Rad and 1x120 side of rad as top supports 3 fans.
Im going to be using push pull on rad but Should i do intake or exhaust, What should i set the third fan on top to do also should i use bottom fans side of psu cause it may restrict front intake fans??

  1. It really isn't all that complicated. Follow the manufacturer's specification as to the arrangement of the radiator and its fans, and make sure that you have one-way airflow and positive pressure in the case. All that really means is more fans in intake than exhaust. That arrangement will help repel dust.

    Best of luck.

    If you intake you will get better CPU temps, but your case temperature will increase i.e. graphics card will go up some.

    In my experience with a cooler like the H100i your CPU temps are going to be perfectly fine, where as your GPU is going to be busting it's hump to cool it self off. I would trade a couple extra degrees on the CPU for a cooler internal temp on my other parts, so I recommend exhaust on the radiator.

    You might want to just try both methods and see which one you prefer.
