Corsair Hydro H100i CPU Cooler Review
Cases and Cooling
Article Publish Date:
We have had the privilege to examine nearly all of Corsair All-in-one water coolers and most have managed to exceed our high expectations. Today though, we have the flagship cooler in the corsair lineup, the Corsair Hydro H100i on the hot seat. What makes this cooler sits at the top of the stack is that comes with a large 240mm top-mounted radiator that gives it a large surface area and support for up to four 120mm fans. Additionally, the H100i also comes with integrated Corsair Link support, which allows the user to monitor the temperature, control lighting and fan speed via your display.
As a flagship product the Corsair H100i is a bit more expensive than some other water coolers on the market, but at $109 the price tag falls right in line with other water coolers that sport a 240mm radiator. In comparison to the other coolers in this price range though, the H100i is not based on the Asetek design, which most coolers are, regardless of the company that makes it. Very few companies actually have developed their own design in-house, which is why the CoolIt/Corsair partnership makes their coolers unique from other closed loop designs currently on the market.
