Yet another H80 vs. H100 (600T case) question


I currently have the H100 (exhaust) config in my 600t case. The radiator is in the case, and the 2 fans sit outside the case on top. There, is no room for a push/pull config. I have an option to exchange, the H100 for a H80 (which will be setup in push/pull), and will be mounted in my exhaust fan spot in the back of the case.

My question is, do u think i will get better temps/performance with the H80 push/pull, vs H100 2 fan exhaust?


Thanks in advanced!

wow! Now that's what i call a speedy reply.. thanks so much for your input. I was weary about the current performance just because the way the 600t fits the H100 the fans sit on top of the radiator in a pull cong, rather then under pushing air thru it. But i had to hear it from a pro. thanks again

you have the same number of fans as an h80 in push/pull but have twice the surface area in your rad. so even if you are moving 75% of the air you are still out cooling the h80. also I like my fans in a pull config since it allows me to clean the rad easier since the dust basically only gets stuck on the side that it is drawn in on. this means i don't have to take my fans off to clean.

once again stick around and you will learn much much more

To reinforce what bmwbaxter told you: the H100 beats the H80 every time in their testing.

Yup, H100 rocks dude. I replaced my case to go to something which could handle it.
