Got some new fans in the front(CM Sickleflows) and a fan controller(Bitfenix Recon)
Both of my H100's fans had this all over the rim of the shroud, it was almost like water. Anyone know what it is?
Relax is Coil oil is like it happened to me with these fans Corsair
check if the fan screws didn´t mess up the rad fins.....
That was the first thing I did. The screws barely went past the shroud. As the previous person said It must just be oil.
No is not oil, you dont see any leak coming from the back center of the fans where suppose to be the oil that lubricates fan rotors.
its just lube. be sure to clean it off as it attracts gunk.
did you taste it or smell it ? Because if is water leak you can smell it.
Smelt like nothing, didn't taste because of glycol in h100 Fluid.
Here is my PC, just cleaned it.
love that case!!
MustangGT2142 why you use three different fans ? This fuck up your color scheme !
You can wipe some of it off with a clean finger, then rub it on a plain white piece of paper. Should be able to tell at that point if it's watery or oil.
Trying some new paste
Must not have been water, otherwise it would have evaporated by now. I just tried that. Turned the paper a bit clear, which proves it should be oil.
Those pics are unnecessarily huge.
Actually there are five different fans, there is one is the front also. I know they aren't perfect, but they get the job done.
Most people post massive pictures on here for some reason.
I used GC-extreme a few years ago and got excellent results when compared to AS5 and MX-2. Good stuff!
I like the large res pics so I zoom in and check out the hidden details of other builds, especially cable management skills. Though I am usually browsing TPU at home on my 32" monitor. I could see big pic uploads being a pain when browsing from a phone or tablet.
I made the big mistake of opening this thread on the iPhone app, won't be doing that again....

This is a shaky hand cheap phone photo of my machine
Gainward are probably my favourite GPU manufacturer
I have no complaints, although in my CoolerMaster Silencio 550 card with a blow out cooler would be a better choice. GPU and SSD are going to be my next upgrades.
