Water cooling fit?

Hey everyone. I'm thinking about upgrading my phenom II x4 to an fx-8150 in the near future. I want to liquid cool it for some serious overclocking. I was thinking about cooling it with a Corsair h100, would that fit in my tower case? I have a rosewill challenger http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147153

  1. Nope. The H100 has a dual radiator, and theres no dual 120mm fan mounts on that case. Most you can get is a 120mm rad.
  2. Though a 212 EVO would be a better choice than spending the money for a CLC with a 120mm rad.

    I just installed my water cooler and it makes closed loop coolers (the H100i) look like a complete waste of money :).
  4. Especially when the prices are so similar. I was initially looking at a H100 when I was thinking of upgrading my cooling and (at the time) my current kit was only $20 more.

    Its a matter of $14 where I am between a H100i and a Raystorm RS240 kit. No reason to go with a closed loop.
  5. It also depends on where you place it :). Good airflow and fans are something you always need.
  6. Yes, the H100 will fit in a HAF912.
  7. The H100/i will fit on a Rosewill CHALLENGER case you just mount it on the side pannel.


    Assuming there enough clearance from your gpu- sometimes there not.
  8. It would be better to mount the H100 in the top of the 912. So that way if you have to do anything t the internals (and take off the side panel) you dont have to worry about the cooler stretching and it will just be easier.
