Great Cooler

N/A, Newegg
1 week ago
  • Summary: I freaked out when I powered it up and heard a gurgle. I thought it was going to leak, but it seems it was just part of the initial start up. I haven't heard it since.
  • Pros: Major improvement over my previous air cooler. Keeps my AMD FX 4170 cool even OCed to 4.8ghz. I'll be pushing it further soon.
  • Cons: It is large, but that's probably true of all radiators of this size. I had some difficulty mounting it in my Antec P280 case. I had planned on installing it on top, but there's maybe 1/16th of an inch too little space. I had to install the fans on the outside of the case. This is my fault for poo...

It's simple and does the job.

  • Summary: Wish you could change the color of the Corsair logo on the block.
  • Pros: Run the pump power cord to a main power source off the psu, the pump runs full blast all the time. Run the PWM fan to the cpu fan header on the mother and you're golden.
  • Cons: None

Very Nice!

  • Summary: Corsair has made an excellent product here IMO. Will by other models eventually for my other custom builds. Keep up the good work Corsair!!
  • Pros: Running a i7-4820k on EVGA X79 Dark overclocked from stock 3.7 to 4.4Ghz using set fan speed at 45% and stock fans, idle temps at 35c and load at 69-70c (well under max temps for this cpu). If I crank up the fan speeds....well, you know what happens. Nice and quiet at 45%, start to hear it over t...
  • Cons: The only think I would have liked to see, which is not a con really, is quieter stock fans for such a nice product but it's easy enough to pick up some quality fans if necessary. I might just do that if I decide to OC to higher speeds but it's not necessary right now.

Easy to install

  • Pros: Nice cooler, well built with good material. Quiet, works well so far. Good phone support.
  • Cons: I bought the Corsair 730t case to put this cooler in with the hope that it would fit since both are from the same manufacturer. The 730t is also on Corsairs site as a case that works with the H105. But the screws for mounting the cooler to the top do not work with the rubber washers on the case. ...

Compatibility: Not As Advertised

KEVIN K., Newegg
30 June 2015
  • Summary: I ended up using a different cpu cooler. Also, I found a document on the Corsair site which stated that the H105 isn't compatible with 500R case. I also found the video previously described on this site (installation and compatibility).
  • Pros: Well made unit. Easy assembly and connection if it fits.
  • Cons: I thought I had done plenty of investigation when I purchased this item based on a Corsair video which states directly that the H105 is compatible with the Corsair Carbide Series 500R case. It will not fit as advertised. Now I am stuck with a H105 that I cannot use based on this false advertisement.

Corsair H105

Robert P., Newegg
29 June 2015
  • Summary: Replaced the stock fans if you want quieter operation.
  • Pros: Good quiet AIO cooling unit. I have never used on of these before so I was a bit skeptical at first. After having it a while I am pleasantly surprised. Does a good job keeping the CPU cool and I can't here the pump at all.
  • Cons: None so far
