We chose our suppliers based on a number of criteria including performance, price, reliability, etc. At the time we tested the Asetek and CoolIT units about three years ago, the Asetek unit had advantages that made it the best choice for H50.

We are still using both Asetek and CoolIT as suppliers for our watercooling products, but to be honest, both of them make good products so it's a matter of matching those products to the right customer. CoolIT's H80 and H100 proposals were more attractive to us than Asetek's, so we went with them for those parts. Asetek has made other, more attractive proposals as well, and we are working with them on other current and future products.

It's not switching from one vendor to another, it's picking the right part from the right vendor to match a specific performance/price point that makes sense.

So it can be said with certainty that the H100 will be significantly cooler operating than both the H70 and H80 with their thicker radiators but only a 120mm footprint?

Any idea how the stock Corsair fans will work with two Gentle Typhoon AP-14s in push and the stock Corsairs in pull?

@CorsairGeorge - Are you allowed to give us an approximate % of the performance increase between the H70 and the H100?

If you do the volume calculations based solely on the fan area footprint you will come up with a figure that is roughly similar. But given that the H100 has the ability to mount 4 fans it should cool better.

Now I'm no good with math but based on numbers alone 120x120x50 (H70)= 720K and 240x120x25 (H100) = 720K. Now since I'm a dope when it comes to math I don't even know what to do with those figures. Lol. But they are identical. Only thing separating the H100 and the H70 is the new pump, the ability to run 4 fans, and possibly higher fin density.

This is if they did not create a radiator with more dense fins. In which case all predictions go out the window.
The fin densities are different, but I honestly don't have the FPI in my inbox right now so I can't tell you exactly what the differences are yet.

The H80 will outperform the H70 at the same RPM by about 3-4C on an i7 930 overclocked to 3.8 GHz.

But that's based on the H80s "balanced" RPM mode for the fans. The included fans can spin from 900 RPM to 2700 RPM, and the RPM on balanced is from 1300 at low coolant temperature to 2000 at high coolant temperature, which is about the same as the H70 fans spin.

The "High Performance" mode starts at 1600 RPM and goes to 2700 RPM based on coolant temp, and the Low Noise mode starts at 900 RPM and goes to 1300 RPM.

The H80, being push-pull, does add a bit of noise over the H100 because it's got more turbulence and obstruction for the fan airflow. The H100 has a lot less obstruction so even with the fans on the same RPM, it's a bit quieter.

Plus, you can bump performance by adding the 3rd and 4th fans if your case has room.

The H80 is great because it's more widely compatible with cases, and the performance out of the box with H80 and H100 is fairly similar. But H100 has a bit more headroom.

Nice, thanks for the info!

Hmm I wonder what cases will fit H100. I currently have a dragonlord k56 which will probably need to be upgraded
post #248 of 432
If the H100 can compete with the D14 within 3-6 degrees, its a guaranteed buy for me.

Will we ever see like an H150 with triple 120 rad?

Never say never, but there's what, like 5 cases in the world that are compatible with that type of product?

At that point, it's more fun to build your own watercooling setup anyway. Guys who buy the 800D or Case Labs cases are doing custom watercooling rigs because it looks awesome and it's fun to do. Even if they only get a few degrees better performance for hundreds of more dollars, it's a hobby and it's enjoyable.

I don't see a triple 120 radiator version being popular enough to justify development costs. But I've been wrong before.
