Corsair Hydro Series H100i V2 Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm (CW-9060025-WW)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Based on the info from online forums and my own analysis, this AIO liquid cooler is a rebadge of the H100i GTX, just like most of the other H--i/V2 variants are the rebadge of their numerically corresponding GT/X counterparts, with no changes to performance and almost no exceptions. Both the original versions and rebadged versions have easy to find reviews on the internet.
The performance is very good for units like this, with idle temperature of expected 30C and max temperature of 46C, just like in the reviews, depending on the ambient temperature. However, this performance is not too far off from the numerous competitors.
The PWM based on USB Corsair Link is very responsive since the noise levels are sensitive to it. The noise levels are fairly tolerable, but not nearly the best, just like in the online reviews.
The build quality is one of the best and installation is one of the easiest. The cable management is also one of the easiest, requiring only one 3-pin CPU fan connector. The radiator is basic and is same as other units made by other companies, but more dense than the ones in Swiftech, etc.
Corsair Link software and website are very easy to use. They have been refined with several updates but very little functional change except with customizable LED tied to cooling performance.
The warranty is five years and the quick installation guide is very simple to use.
The LED light tied to the CPU pump looks very good to me, and the color can be changed in Corsair Link to anything besides the default white color, with a temperature warning color threshold of the default and changeable 45C.
The fan performance is above average, not the best.
The price has been reduced to be more reasonable.
The packaging is what you would expect from a basic liquid cooler.

Cons: The acoustic levels cannot be optimized by Corsair Link, contrary of what you read in the reviews. Each Corsair link component requires its own internal USB2 connector, but most motherboards only have two of them. You will need to spend another ~95 dollars for the hub. This cooler is not expandable but this is outweighed by superb performance and compact design compared to older customizable solutions.

Other Thoughts: H100i V2 is made in China, just as expected. Corsair is an american company in California that do both rebrands and original design. For me the noise level is just as important as cooling performance. If you don’t know already, the noise level is comparable if not more than air coolers due to additional pump noise. The larger fans have better noise levels per CFM. Liquid cpu cooling is not designed for compact and mobile PC’s, which are becoming the norm nowadays, with only specialized computers survive after tech convergence.

4 out of 5 eggs low write speed but cheap 10/06/2016
