4 out of 5 eggs Works great and keeps teps low. 09/20/2016

This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series H100i V2 Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm

Pros: -Includes hardware for a push or pull configuration.
-Keeps temperatures low even while overclocked and under full load.
-Corsair link provides a lot of information regarding temperatures and fan speeds.

Cons: -Manual fan speed mode is 40% or higher (not great for builds requiring silence).
-Water tubes while sturdy and good looking are stiff making some placements of the radiators not possible.

Other Thoughts: I originally built my system with the h50 witch worked well enough but I had to RMA because there was some air in the loop. I contacted Corsair for a replacement and while there ticket system is a little inefficient they were very helpful. While in the RMA processes I expressed an interest in upgrading to the h100i V2 . To my surprise they were willing to allow me to upgrade provided that I pay the difference in price between the two models. (Very nice)

Now to the benchmarks. My system included a 6700K O.C.ed to 4.5 GHZ and a gtx 970. I took temperatures at idol and running a stress test on the CPU and GPU (to increases case temperatures as my setup makes the H100i V2 pull from case air) and the fans held at ~1100 RPM, the ambient temperature was 26C. I took the 2nd highest core temperature as my standardized temperature. At Idol the H50 ran at 25C and the H100i V2 ran at 23C a 2 degree difference not not impressive. Under load however the story changes the H50 ran at 87C and the H100i V2 ran at 80C, a full 7 degree difference.

Overall I am satisfied with the H100i V2 and would recommend it to anybody doing any overclocking but sill wanting quiet operation.

Phanteks Eclipse Series PH-EC416P_BK Satin Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Lots of cable management options.
-Lights look good without being too bright.
-Dust filters are a great feature.

Cons: -They should have included 140mm fans as the case is compatible with it.
-A light in the back of the case would have evened out the look of the case.
-No 5.25in bays.
-Top fan filter is to easy to knock off.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my brother and the install went great. The case is sturdy with a slight exception to the fan mounting location on the front of the case. There are no 5.25in bays witch was a bummer although this is my own fault for not carefully looking at the specs.
