CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
  • Verified Owner

4 out of 5 eggs Great Product, but beware of loose backplate issue plaguing users! 05/09/2015

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

Pros: -Keeps my i7-4790k @ 60-75 Celsius on %100 load
(34-45 with %10-20 load)

-Corsair link software is great and easy to use

Cons: There's one BIG problem with this product: The backplate. Even when the backplate was installed properly, I was getting temps of upward 90 Celsius on %100 load!

After some googling I found that on some mobos the backplate doesn't fit tightly enough and requires washers to create a more tight connection so that the cooler actually sets on the CPU. Apparently, this is a common issue.

I'm disappointed that Corsair didn't start including washers with this product and document this problem in the manual; if they did, then this really wouldn't be an issue.

Other Thoughts: Before installing, I recommend watching "H100i Backplate Fix" on YouTube (Uploaded by bleedinsixcolours) just to get a better overview of this problem.

Intel Core i7-4790K Devil’s Canyon Quad-Core 4.0GHz LGA 1150 BX80646I74790K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fantastic processor! Even @ stock speed this bad boy can handle a lot. Having 8 threads is quite nice.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is a bit of an overkill for most gaming rigs. But it's perfect if you plan on doing video editing/transcoding, high end livestreaming, and other high end applications.

Pros: Can't say; product is no working correctly.

Cons: So after building my new PC I was surprised to see the performance wasn't so great. After a bit of messing around with benchmarking utilitys, I found that my i7-4790k was running well over 100*C! and this is with a Corsair H100i CPU cooler.
