CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: • Quiet. Looks good.
• Keeps both PCs I've tested it on cool.
• Integrated control of 4 PWM fans.

Cons: • The fan adapter/cables are a little bit short. Makes them more of a pain to run and hide.
• CPU block is fairly wide on 1 axis. Makes the product incompatible with some (older gigabyte) motherboards in 2 of the 4 different directions that you could mount it. Probably won't prevent anyone from using it but it can result in limited installation options depending on your case. Complaints online about this are obscure enough that it probably won't be noticed prior to purchase.
• You could punch screws through the radiator if you aren't careful. The fan mounting screws are a little oddball. Wasn't a deal breaker from me but I can see how someone not paying attention could mess things up.

Other Thoughts: This is a new review / repost. In my original review I had complained that it was incompatible with my gigabyte motherboard. I took another look at the product and realized that with some fiddling it could be made to fit. Had to mount the cpu block with the tubes pointing out toward my ram instead of towards the ostensible 'top' of the mother board given it's position in the case.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Looks great sitting there in it's box. 04/08/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm

Pros: Decent enough build quality. Support for 4 controlled fans. Was relatively easy to install.

Cons: Incompatable with GA-X58A-UD3R motherboards. The water block is too large and settles against some of the capacitors on the motherboard just enough to tilt it on the cpu's heat spreader. It isn't obvious unless your paying attention. . .or you notice that your cpu is running at 65c after boot.

Other Thoughts: Would have been nice to know the plate of the block was so ridiculously oversized before I purchased it. Corsair doesn't have any incompatibility documentation that I could find.

ICY DOCK MB455SPF-B 5 in 3 SATA I, II & III Hot-Swap Internal Backplane Raid Cage Module
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Awful cooling; Nice use of space. 04/17/2012

This review is from: ICY DOCK MB455SPF-B 5 in 3 SATA I, II & III Hot-Swap Internal Backplane Raid Cage Module

Pros: 5 hotswap drives in 3 bays. Nice use of space. Was fine with cooler drives. Has breakouts for status LEDs and such

Cons: Seriously undercooled. You might want to avoid this product if you have 7200 RPM drives . The backpane should have been arranged out to allow for better cooling.

Other Thoughts: Icydock needs to put a warning in the marketing info for this product. Terrible rating is inspired by the two hard drives this thing killed.
