Corsair H100i or H80i?

Hello!
Currently I'm running an AMD FX-8320 with no overclocks with the stock cooler, and it seems to be running at 38 degrees Celsius at idle, 40-46 degrees Celsius while slightly browsing the web and 51+ degrees Celsius under a significant amount of load, which seems rather hot.

Currently I'm using a 750D with two exhaust fans out back and one intake fan (all of which are the stock 140mm), and I was wondering whether I should go with either:

-A H100i mounted at the top of the case as an exhaust
-A H80i mounted at the back of the case as an intake or exhaust

Using the H80i will also let me use two 140mm fans at the top of the case, while the H100i only allows a 140mm fan in the back.

Use H100i fan as exhaust also rear fan as exhaust.

So there isn't much of an advantage with the extra 140mm exhaust and using the H80i as an intake? Also is it worth the extra $30?

Also I've read somewhere that I should use the rear fan as an intake so that the H100i and rear fan won't compete for air.

It's worth to spend 30$ on H100i also using rear fan as exhaust is always better than intake.


Alright, thanks! By the way, should I be buying the H100i first (124.99) or should I be buying the bottom intake fans + fan splitter/hub (49.79)? I have enough for the fan setup right now, so I can buy then wait for a sale, or I can save up and first buy the H100i.


Get H100i first, your case should have decent airflow with stock fans :)

Hello again!
I was just wondering if you knew if it was possible to mount the H100i as a bottom intake on the 750D? I've read that it's better for the cooler if it was an intake, but I'm not sure if it will go down that far. If not, should I still be using the H100i as a top mounted exhaust?

Hopefully I'm not being a bother, since I already PM'ed you about this, but I really appreciate the help! :)

The best way is mount your H100i at the top of your case with exhaust direction.
