I think the entire purpose of the Corsair H line is simplicity > performance. Not really form over function.

I'll be happy with my RASA kit.

I think it's a choose 2 situation. Simplicity (in maintenance I assume you mean) + Form > function. Really though, the H100 looks like it will probably trade blows with high end air coolers. So the only reason to choose the H100 over a cheaper high end air cooler would be for its form (since it's not any simpler than a regular heatsink).

Anyone else notice the direction the tubes come from the pump? Straight down towards the MOBO?? I don't remember my h70 tubes being able to rotate, perhaps these will?

Was about to order an H70! Hopefully these are incrementally better or else waiting for benchies was a waste of time lol.

The H100 should perform close to real watercooling with the same rad space.

Obviously it won't be as cool (in temps and looks). But water is pretty efficient at taking heat away. A stronger pump and better block will only get you so far. At the end of the day surface area will dictate performance.

Again, don't reply and so WT#$$#$$F watercooling will bust this H100. Yes it will, but I would be curious to take your pump and block on this H100 radiator and compare.

The other H series coolers from Corsair trade blows with high end air coolers, why release another one that does the same. I believe this one will better high end air coolers, or there is no point!!

Then H80 is probably striving to fill a middle ground between air and water and I'm betting the H100 will be trading blows with those Rasa kits.

As in slightly less effective but far less money.

If they are going for the competitions H70 price drops H80 takes the ~$100 slot and H100 drops in at around $130. That's if they're paying enough attention to their competition though, we've all seen companies make stupid calls in the past
