Corsair Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance CPU Cooler Review

 

Introduction

Over the past two weeks we have seen a lot of new gear come from the Corsair camp. New mousing surfaces, power supplies, but the most exciting have been the all-in-one water-cooling. We had the chance to take a look at their update to the H60, and we'll also be bringing you a look at their new H55 in the next few days, as well as the H80i shortly after that. They perform very well, but we always seem to want more.

Many of you are familiar with the H80 and H100 offerings by Corsair. These two self contained liquid coolers were the ones that made us all want to hop onto the water-cooling bandwagon. These are the coolers that topped the big humongous air-coolers that were popping up at the time, those very same air-coolers that barely leave us two slots to install memory. Just as their H60 sibling they too have been given their own updates, but are these updates the H100i has received enough to merit us to ditch our older H100 and run out to nab the new ‘i’ model?

Corsair’s take on the H100i

Have a PC case that supports a top-mounted 240mm radiator? Take your CPU cooling to a new level. H100i starts with the advanced design of the Hydro Series H80i, and adds a double-wide radiator for even better performance.
