H100 upright

I have an H100 and want to install it in my case like in the picture,but was wondering about the inlet /outlet on top.If there is any air in the system will the pump be sucking air?Is there any air in a H100?The pic is off the net,not my rig.

Bad idea for long term use. Some units aren't fully bled out when they leave the factory and others develop bubbles over long periods of time. (months/years)

But since the Corsair units come with 5 year warranties it might not really matter if you don't mind having to RMA every 1-3 years.

I have owned the h100 and an H50 back in the day and found that there was still a little bit of air in the system, so by having the pump at the highest point it would make gurglng noises indicating to me that it was sucking air. It would be most ideal to have the pump mounted on the top of the case where those 2 120mm fans are.

That is how I have my h100 mounted. Maybe that is why it is much more audible then my h60 was. The air bubble noise has for the better part gone away over time like they suggested on the corsair forums.

yeah was wondering about that,I have same case as in the pic (Corsair 300r) and does not leave any room for a push pull setup,and I am also trying to set things up for as little dust into the case as possible.. added a pic to show you what I mean.

Not good to have it this way you are making that pump work way harder than it should.

Pump should ALWAYS be below inlet/outlet of radiator

Thanx guys for the info,Guess I gonna have to rethink this idea and figure out some modification to get a push/pull on top of the rig.I like modding so it will be fun.if I mess it up I'll just have to buy the larger version of the case.

Cheers

I did not know this. Good thing I will be switching to custom loop very soon. Thanks for the heads up though now I know. :)

so I assume that the rigs I have seen with bottom mounted rads are custom w/c with reservoir's then?

It custom loops you have a pump, reservoir, and radiator all seperate.

Units like the H100 have the pump and reservoir built in.

So by using a custom loop you have more freedom in how things can run but even still the pump should always be at the lowest point of the loop.
