If you can go push/pull, I've heard 4x Noctua NF-P12's do an amazing job.

So I have it in place now. Currently only going with the standard stock corsair fans but after hearing them I will most likely change them out once I can get my hands on Gentle Typhoon AP-15. I had that combo for awhile on my H50 and it did great. Oh and I also stuck with the stock thermal paste, only because I only have one tube of arctic silver left and it is almost empty and needed elsewhere.

I am very disappointed that H100 does not fit in 600T
it can only be installed with fan sitting on top of the case, pulling air or pushing down
even then, mash cover doesn't close all the way, it sticks out little bit

Why can't you do PP in a 650D? Is it because it will be too thick and bump into the 8-pin?

there about less than 3inch between top of motherboard to top of case.
not enough space to fit push/pull, unless you mount the pull fans on outside of the case....

I have mine in my 650D. I will be putting in two AP-15's once they get in but for now I have the stock Corsair fans. Here are some pictures of it installed.





As you can see from the picture below, there is just not quite enough room for push/pull setups. But as said you could put fans on the outside, maybe even 2 140mm fans.


Here is one in the dark with the fans set to full speed:


And here is a closer look at the pump/block of the H100.



And here is a cat in a bag. No he was not an accessory with the H100.

A few questions ipaine:
1. Is that back fan set up for exhaust or intake? (I was thinking that might work with a dust filter seeing as there aren't many intakes for the 650D)
2. Where did you plug in the four pin and the molex coming out from the pump?

1. It is an exhaust as is the H100. I would like to have it as an intake but I have two issues with that. One is the fact I would have to get a dust filter for it. The second issue is that it would just be intaking all the hot air getting expelled by my 580's.

2. Coming out from the pump there is the molex that just gets connected to a standard connector that is just out of sight on the other side of the case, and then the three pin connector goes onto the cpu fan header.

As for temps they have been all over the place, no fault of the H100, its just the ambient temperature goes from about 22 right now to about 28 or so late day/afternoon.

That said right now with the fans set at the middle "balanced" option I get one core significantly lower at 16C (yea, I know it is not really below ambient) and the others at 29C.

I will do a short little OCCT run to see the temps on load at this ambient temp. Most of the runs I have done before it was a lot warmer in here and with those runs I would say the temps across the cores ranged from 67-72.

Ok here are the results:

Ambient: 22C
Idle: 27-29C
Load: 58-62C

That is on the balanced profile, which is quite quiet but not totally silent.

Here are the results from an earlier test I did with the fan profile at performance, not quiet but not completely loud either.

Ambient: 28C (About that, it could have been higher due to testing before hand and the area the machine is in directly gets quite warm from the heat put out by my 580's and this)
Idle: 36-37C
Load: 70-71C

The load temps on both tests are basically the max temps that the cores hit. The temps were recorded by OCCT using speedfan and cross referenced with AIDA64.
