Excerpt: ANOTHER ALL-IN-ONE liquid-cooling loop! Hooray! Corsair’s H100 is its fifth liquid cooler; after two with Asetek, the company has put out three with CoolIT. The H60 is your standard 120mm radiator-with-single-fan, the H80 is the double-thick double-fan version, and the H100, the first Corsair liquid-cooler to support LGA2011, is its first cooler with a 240mm radiator.
Pros: Quiet; excellent performance; easy install; supports up to four fans.
Cons: Won’t fit in every case; need to open case to adjust fan speed; expensive.
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. Two 120mm fans are included, these operate at 2600-1300RPM and create a fair bit of noise at full tilt.
Excerpt: What I am about to show you is something that I have sat back and hoped for in almost three years. In that time I have seen just about every incantation of all-in-one water cooling loops from various manufacturers. Even with the fact that we already know that CoolIT is tied to Corsair at this point and Asetek moved teams to deliver Antec their versions, the battle for cooling supremacy in this segment is still essentially a two sided battle.
Summary: The Corsair H100 has performed flawlessly throughout testing and I have witnessed the lowest temp recorded in the 4.8GHz test! Just take a look at those temperatures and let them speak for themselves… It would appear that Corsair has a real winner on their hands here; we have a well designed and constructed closed loop liquid cooler, that’s easy to install, performs well (extremely well at higher loads), looks good and is even well priced too.
Excerpt: 6 Flares 6 Flares × ‘All in one’ watercoolers have taken the enthusiast sector by storm in the last year. Not only have units from Corsair, Antec and Coolit proved to perform very well, but they are easy to fit and leave a lot of free space around the CPU socket. Today we are looking at the latest and greatest from Corsair – the H100.
