CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

2 out of 5 eggs Shotty quality control 07/06/2014

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

Pros: none

Cons: Loud, Annoying to fit, mounting the water block is a pain..

Other Thoughts: When I took mine fresh out of the box, was impressed by the craftsmanship of the tubing and water block.

Upon further inspection, I noticed gouges/scratches in the copper block.

Worried, I continued to look at the radiator and noticed MULTIPLE light spots where the paint wasn't applied thick enough.

Mounted the block and ran some tests with Prime95 at STOCK core speed, temps exceeded the max 62C on my 8350. Mounted my older H60 and found temps stayed at a comfortable 50C at 100% load.

Will definitely be contacting Corsair.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Keeps cool at high load
- Most games at Ultra High settings
- Overclocks easily
- Runs quietly

Cons: - Massive card (heavy / long)
- Obstructs water cooling route
- Size of the card makes it hard to x-fire

Other Thoughts: Besides the size of the card, I have no major issues with this thing. It looks like a beast and runs like one.
