[sweclockers] the new Corsair Hydro H100 and H80 Cpu Coolers - Page 14

post #131 of 432
Time to buy a H100. It beats water-cooling.

These solutions are so much easier and require less maintenance than proper custom WC setups.

I had a full GPU/CPU loop in my TJ07 (D-Tek Fuzon, Laing DDC etc...) and it just required so much fiddling, getting ready, maintaining... it was horrible. Sold it before the year was out. Looked good, but worth the cost/hassle.

It IS water cooling. Just an easy to set up solution.

Unfortunately, I don't have the space in my case for the H100, I'll probably go with the H80 for my next build.

I want to know what the H80 offers over the H70...

Really?

An upgraded block and pump, and a newer fan design.

The fans look to be the ones on the H60.

Probably very little in the real world. A few degrees at best.

The H100 is looking rather sweet. Me thinks my rig will be wanting one of those.
Come to papa, got a space all picked out for you. LOL

The price equates to ~$165AU for the H100 which with current exchange rates is around $175USD

Why on earth would anyone pay even close to $175 for an enclosed loop like this? For only another $25-$50 you can get either an XSPC or EK kit that would perform better and has the expansion option of going full system (adding GPU)

You would have to be insane to pay that kind of money for that.....

The H50 is around $150 in AU anyway, lots of people still buy/bought it.

Currently the RS240 kit is $139 and RX at $159 and people still buy the H70. Its got to do with ease of use, size restrictions and just no up keep.

Personally, i think they are very well suited for different people with different needs.

Don't know where you shop but the H50 goes for around $105-$115 most places I've seen

H70 is $150+ and is a total rip-off at that price
