Corsair H100i Self-Contained Liquid CPU Cooler Review
Posted on October 30, 2013 12:00 PM by Techgage Staff
Whether you’re a serious overclocker with a blazing hot chip, or simply want a little added performance over and above what the stock cooler can provide, Corsair seems to have all price points covered with its Hyrdo series all-in-one coolers. After an extended hiatus, we’re back at it with a look at one of the company’s top high-end offerings, the H100i.
After a looooong hiatus, we’re finally back testing CPU coolers, and we’re kicking things off with a look at one of the heavy hitters from Corsair’s Hydro series, the redesigned H100i. We’re pretty late in getting this review online, but we’re using this cooler to break in our new test system, so we feel it’s worth the wait.
For those who don’t know, the original H100 was an enthusiast-level, pre-filled liquid cooler that featured a 240mm radiator and two 120mm fans. It also featured a 3-stage, push button fan controller on top of the block and pump housing, allowing users to choose between silence, performance, or a balance of both.
There have been a number of design improvements since then, and if our review of the original H100 way back in August 2011 is any indication, this updated version could prove to be a champ.
