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

3 out of 5 eggs Follow up to Corsair comments 10/14/2014

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

Pros: Keep things cool, quiet fans if Corsair Link stays working. One of the best performance coolers for gamers out there.

Cons: Again, Corsair Link needs fixing. Saved all settings to a profile, then several reboots later, new fans started showing up and existing fans that I had placed onto the pic of inside of machine started showing zero speed. Tried to delete profile and start all over, it just eventually loses your custom settings so don't think you can go back in after you have configured this your way. And after my last experience, I don't dare firmware to update itself.

Other Thoughts: This is an update to a previous post that Corsair would only RMA to me a refurb unit after I purchased this NEW from N.E. - Corsair appends to my posting that if I bought a new unit, I would be RMA'ed a NEW unit - this is INCORRECT. Your own TECH told me that new units were out of stock and not available for 3 weeks, so if I wanted one NOW that I would have to take a refurb, which IS WHAT I GOT. - Corsair needs to stop making corrections which are untrue and are not based on the facts that I relayed and are provable by my own ticket number. Summary: Until more stock comes in, IF you RMA a unit due to a Corsair Link firmware update trashing your unit, you MAY GET a refurb if that's all they have at the time. Corsair stop appending untrue comment to mine.

3 out of 5 eggs Still problems with Link SQ 09/28/2014

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

Pros: Sound design, good sealing - fans quiet - keeps temps exceptionally under control.

Cons: Corsair Link software still broken badly. Was hoping two years later that it would be better. Installed into my case, working fine, quiet fan speed. Then saw where pump and fans were listing a firmware upgrade from 1.05 to 1.07. So I let it do it's thing. One listed as successful, one listed as failed. After that, fans and pump no longer showed up in the Link software, therefore no more control of fan speeds or temperature listing. Ticket placed with Corsair, they advised to delete a hidden directory and reinstall with older link software. This also was unsuccessful. Let with fan speeds stuck on high (loud) and fans and pump no longer showing up in link software. Basically, I have to RMA it all back to Corsair at my expense.

Other Thoughts: One other BEWARE. If you do need to RMA it back to Corsair, they only have REFURBISHED units to give you. Mine was brand new from NEWEGG. Refurbs COULD be older model with different hoses and pump. Therefore, warning - if you are still determined to buy one of these, DO NOT FLASH FIRMWARE. I wonder why it is taking so long to get this Corsair Link software working as it should. Very frustrating to have to go through all of this.

WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4003FZEX

Pros: You must need to buy WD Black in order to get quality packaging. For two drives they used individual boxes, with actual drive shipping containers, the drives themselves surrounded with extra thick padding. I'm used to flimsy drive packaging, but I hope this is a sign that NE wants to get the drives to you safely now and in the future.

Well what else, it's WD Black with 5 year warranty, we know why we buy it. It does run a little hot particularly in a raid array.

Cons: Price, but as usual - coming down. You are paying for that extra two years warranty.
