Corsair Hydro Series H100 CPU Water Cooling Kit Review

Today we are looking at newest addition to the Corsair Hydro Series, the Hydro Series H100. The Corsair H100 offers the best performance of any liquid cooling kit offered by Corsair since it uses a dual 120mm radiator! Since it is a bit larger than normal kits you will need to use it in PC cases that provide mounting capability for a standard 240mm radiator. Join us as we put the new Hydro Series H100 through the paces on our Intel Core i7 test system.

Sweet setup! And it costs less than my old TTake Aquarius did 10 years ago! A lot safer nowadays too, I remember having to constantly worry about irrigating my whole system if a hose failed. Plus I was afraid to leave it running overnite or if I was gone for a few days, one malfunction and PZZZZZZT! :lol:

Do you think it would fit in a CM Storm Sniper case, or would I have the same problems you did with your HAF 912? Not that I really need to uber OC my Thuban 1100T, but if I did this would probably be the cooling solution I'd want to try first.

Thanks for the great review, you got me jonesin' for one of these!

The Storm Sniper has 15mm more space at the top of it compared to the HAF 912/Storm Enforcer/Silencio 550.

Personally, I love the H100 for it's ability to cool in a quiet fashion. Gentle Typhoon AP-14's on this radiator give you great performance (4.4Ghz on an x6 is 100% possible, depending on ambient.)

The Sniper is in my basement, so it is the coolest place in the house. I've got an AC Freezer64 Pro on it now, played with an OC up to 3.8xx+ but never wanted to take the chance to go higher on air. This looks like I could finally go 4Ghz+ without worries.
