Corsair H100i Cooler : Want to go Hydro ?

  • The Corsair H100i CPU cooler is from Corsair's H series, which stands for Hydro or as you guessed it, the liquid/water cooling line. Now, liquid cooling is not for everyone. But if you are a basic user, who feels the heat from your PC on a regular basis, then depending on your cooling budget, you may consider this.  But I'm sure this CPU cooler will get any Gamer or OCer excited.

    TEST RESULTS


    Tests were carried out using an Intel stock cooler, a full water cooling configuration, and the H100i setup (on Corsair's UEFI LINK presets which are - Default, Quiet, Balance, and Performance) for comparison. These tests were carried out on both Stock and OC settings. The ambient temperature in the testing room was at 25C – 26C during the tests. All the tests were done on the bench jig (as I didn’t have an extra chassis to play with at the moment), thus it is expected that results may change to +/- 3 degrees if the setup were inside a chassis with good ventilation.

     

     

    Note: The test at 4.5Ghz OC could not finish on the Intel stock cooler. The system kept on crashing (at least 3 times) so I clocked it down to 4Ghz only.

    NOTEWORTHY TAKEAWAYS

    - Corsair has once again given us a very desirable product! I never thought that this “All in One” water cooling loop could be this good! My water cooling setup barely edged it in terms of temperature readings on both stock and OC configs. The Balance and Performance setting is the recommended setting especially when your system is overclocked.

    - Compatibility across platforms is another good thing. No need to buy extra brackets. One can go from one Intel socket to another or even to AMD. - An optional header for the fans is provided. It is not the usual fan header, so Corsair was kind enough to provide the extra cable so we can add 2 more fans. This will give you the push-pull setup and a total of 4 fans can be used.

    -Based on what I know, the fans provided are the same as that of the SP120 which is known for its high flow and low noise fan. At the Quiet or Balance mode, (given the tests were on a bare test jig) I could barely hear the fans!

     

    AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT

    The water cooling tubes could have been more flexible so that setup and cable management will not be that difficult when placing this inside your chassis.
