Summary: The Hydro H100 heatsink ships fully assembled, filled with a propylene glycol based coolant and plumbed. The waterblock is connected by 24cm of flexible FEP tubing to the heat exchanger which measures about 274x120x25mm in size.
Corsair Hydro Series™ H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
21 March 2012
Conclusion: The Corsair H100 is not just good, it’s great . It’s large radiator and fairly silent operation makes it a top choice. The biggest problem with the Corsair H100 is the size of its radiator, almost all midsize cases simply cannot fit the massive radiator.
Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
20 February 2012
Excerpt: I first ventured into liquid cooling for my computers way back, about a decade ago, for my Intel Pentium 4 "Williamette" and AMD "Duron" based test systems. This was when I was in high school and in my early years of reviewing computer hardware.
Summary: The H100 is currently the top of the line offering from in their Hydro series which is a low cost liquid cooling (LCLC) product line. Water cooling is far superior to even the best air coolers on the market, but will the H100 be worthy of being put into the same category as custom loops?
Corsair Hydro Series H100 Liquid CPU Cooler Review
17 January 2012
Excerpt: Corsair expanded their product line exponentially in 2011 by adding a variety of PC components like mechanical keyboards, gaming mice, performance CPU coolers, desktop and headset sound systems, solid state drives, and their trademark system memory modules.
Conclusion: We can’t deny that the H100 is an impressive cooling kit – it can cope with some of the hottest processors we’ve seen - even at its quiet low fan speed. It also costs a heck of a lot less than a custom water-cooling kit.
Summary: One of the main remarks we had when testing all the different all in one cooling solutions was the size of the radiator, which limited the heat dissipation. Secondly the modern units generate a fair amount of noise, if it's user opted for maximum cooling capacity.
Conclusion: Since the results in the end are very similar between the Antec 920 and the Corsair H100 you will have to just make up your mind on which to choose. The Corsair has a fan speed controller that I like, this I missed on the Antec.
Summary: The Corsair H100 was the best CPU cooler we’ve seen to date. With its 240 mm radiator, which is twice the size of the radiator seen in most sealed liquid cooling systems, it outperformed all the air coolers and liquid cooling solutions we tested so far. However, it is not perfect.
