    this here is how my first meeting with my H100 went.

    i don't have any installation pic of it installed in my case bcs i need to rma it, bcs the sensor or something in the closed pump was fucked and no matter what i did i couldn't reset it and this fan connector didn't work:

    [​IMG]

    and even when i got two fans to spin they ran at ~2100rpm

    the original corsair fans was srsly noisy and with one noctua on it u couldn't even hear it spin at full speed.

    here is my i5-2500k and my Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3 board and 16gb of Corsair memory:

    So now it will be shipped to RMA today so i can get a new one. So my first meeting with watercooling didn't go well so am disappointed :cry:

    you know that the wire coming out from pump gives pump speed, not fan speed, right?

    IF it didn't stay @ 2100 RPM, i'd be worried. Mine sits @ 2093!!!

    If that is the case, then turn on system, hold button on pump for like 10 seconds, then shut down(entering BIOS only is fine).


    That should "reset" the firmware.

    what exactly is the reason to de-lid the CPU? Does it provide better cooling ?

    from my pov it should, bcs u r placing ur cooler directly on the core not, on a metal plate or what they make it out of, with room between the core and plate, but if that's only a roomer i dunno, bcs both AMD and Nvidia do it when it comes to GFX now a days ^^

    Especially for Ivy Bridge CPU's, it helps a lot. Traditionally Intel uses fluxless solder to fuse the lid to the core, which gives good heat transfer. Ivy Bridge CPU's (for whatever reason) use TIM under the lid, making heat transfer much less efficient. De-lidding can take that disadvantage out of the equation, but voids your warranty, and exposes a very fragile core that you can crack extremely easily by mounting a heatsink or waterblock hastily.

    TL;DR: Because it looks sexy as f*ck.
