Not enough space in casing

,, TigerDirect.com
10 November 2014
  • Summary: I tried to install it in a Corsair Graphite 230T Mid casing but the memory DIMMS get in the way. On the Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P AM3+ motherboard the memory slots are too far to the left to clear the space necessary. Only a cooler with 1 fan would fit. I thought Corsair would figure out ways to have their coolers fit in their own cases! Apparently not.

Works well, very easy to install

  • Summary: Low cost, easy to install, looks great, works great. The Corsair Link software does the job, but it's not pretty to look at -- everything is gray.

Extremely cool

,, TigerDirect.com
10 November 2014
  • Summary: When I say cool, I mean it. This thing keeps my FX-9590 colder than the rest of my motherboard. However, it doesn't provide any headroom for overclocking the 9590, buts that's overkill. I recommend downloading the Corsair Link software to create profiles to control fan speeds when gaming heavily.

  • Summary: Got this cooler to replace a failing single 120mm water cooler. The highest temps I've seen with this cooler is 57C. That's benchmarking using XTU with the cpu OCed to 4.3Ghz. The old cooler would get to about 67C doing the same thing. The fans aren't too bad if you keep them at low rpms, but can be loud if you crank them up. I haven't seen any point in having the fans go any higher than 1200 rpms, which is pretty quiet.

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Summary: Ok, I have an older AMD quad core Phenom XII 3.2GHZ running on an ASUS motherboard. There is no overclocking being done other than all 4 cores are active at all times (a setting on the motherboard). With my previous Thermaltake Typhoon Heatsink I was seeing idle temps in the 15C-20C range and 30C under load. I know that's not bad but I went ahead and purchased this cooler along with the Corsair 400R case. Oh, my, word!

H100i FX-8350

  • Summary: It works as advertised, and keeps temps at under 50 deg at 4.8ghz. I installed the radiator in the top of my old Antec 900 case with zip ties. Not impressed with corsair link.

Corsair Hydro Series CPU Cooler - H100i

Riaan, TakeALot

  • Excerpt: Had to return the first one I got because the led showed red and fans ran full speed all the time... But the second one is working perfectly. Love the RGB corsair logo and the link software. Although the product has launched a while ago the software is still a bit buggy and I recommend users NOT to update it unless you have a problem. Does cool the 4790K nicely and also fits onto mini ITX boards without having conflict with the RAM.

  • Summary: Replaced my tower cooler with this. My I7 4970k runs cooler with this but it is a little loud. Plugged fans straight to my motherboard instead of using the y cable they give you.

Corsair Hydro Series CPU Cooler - H100i

Gavin, TakeALot
4 September 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a very simple way to implement water cooling for your CPU. I initially went this route as I though 2 large diameter fans and a radiator would run a lot quieter than the traditional CPU fan. While it is quieter, the noise reduction is not significant. Also be sure you have somewhere to mount the radiator and dual fans in your case - mine was a very tight squeeze.

Great unit

  • Summary: Running on a 5820k Hasewell overclocked to 4.3ghz, still seems like overkill, to the touch the air coming out feels like room tempature, which is great. My only grip is having to sacrafice a usb port on my board.
