Pros: Easy setup, No leakage, Silent, Low temps

Cons: No external fan adjustment.

The H100 is a great liquid cooler for anyone wanting liquid cooling temps, without the liquid cooling installation. Taking the plunge into liquid cooling can be a little tricky for a beginner, from the leak testing, to deciding the loop order, not to mention the price. For anyone a bit hesitant of taking that on, the H100 is a great choice.

The main advantage the H100 has over full blown liquid cooling loops, is that you can just pop it in your rig and not have to worry about it. No worrying about leaks, no cleaning, and no lengthy install. The H100 will easily fit in most full tower cases, and some mid towers.

Temps wise, personally I have a 2500k with a 5ghz OC and I'm holding a 25c idle temp in a 22c room. When I get into 100% load using Prime95, my temps never break 65c. During a long gaming session, my temps are usually around 55c.

With all my case fans at the lowest speed, the two 120mm fans of the H100 are barely audible on max speed. I've kept my H100 fans on max since day 1 and feel no need to turn them down due to noise.

The sleek look, simple install, silent operation, and low temps that the H100 brings to the table makes it a sure choice for anyone looking for an easy window into the watercooling world.
