I can't fit an H100 in mine, so I just bought an H80 instead.

The H100 appears not to be the savior everyone is making it out to be.
Instead I think that the H100 is exactly what people were expecting: best all-in-one watercooler with can be run much quieter. Noise/performance ratio is what shines (see the graph, push-pull at low settings).
A closed loop cannot do miracles, but the results are exactly what I was expecting.

Just installed the H80 in my build but encountered an issue with connecting one of the fans to the main unit. The left-hand fan installed easily, but I could not get the right-hand fan to plug into the main unit. Unfortunately, I had already installed the main unit and radiator onto the motherboard and into the case at this points, so I had to take the main unit back off the motherboard.

When I could get a good look at the unit outside of the case it appeared that the circuit board in the main unit was sticking out/up by a couple of millimetres and this was preventing the right-hand fan from connector from being fully inserted. With a bit of wiggling I was able to connect the fan correctly, but I’m sure this is not correct.

As the PC had not been turned on and the TIM was evenly spread across the cpu and base of the main unit I reinstalled the cooler and hopefully everything will be fine. I'm running a 2600K CPU (without over clocking to begin with) so what temps should I be looking for to confirm that removing and reinstalling the main until has not had a detrimental impact on the cooling performance?



CorsairGeorge,

I've not see anyone mention this issue before, so I am assuming it is a one off manufacturing issue with my particular unit. Therefore, I would be very interested to hear you thoughts on both the issue with plugging in the fan and in re-installing the cooler without replacing the TIM. I can send you a diagram to illustrate the issue more clearly if that would be helpful.

Best wishes
James

I'm getting better results than every h100 result I've seen with this antec 920. Its the best sealed system out now for sure. The h100 will need 4 fans to do the same most likely. The h80 will probably be on par with the h100, maybe minimal difference. And the antec is silent when not on extreme mode. So not the best.

Well, I read your system spec says your getting 71 on load with extreme yes?
Well check this thread: http://www.overclock.net/other-cooli...0-today-3.html

Check Moops screenshot, he's running the same CPU as you with the same OC and his temps are 7degrees cooler then yours with only 2 fans on the H100 and in balanced mode which is very very quiet.

This is worthless without comparing ambient temps.

Basically all reviews are useless without knowing the ambient temperature.

Great thread. Wish i'd found/read it before i installed my H80 and saved myself some hassle.

Thought i'd chime in with my install experience and results.

First off i'm using older h/w (q9450 and GA-EP45-UD3P) so not as comparable to the i3/5/7 most are using now.

First problem i had was that the fans and rad are not flush on the top. The fans sit just below the top of the rad.
My case (Thermaltake V3) has the 120mm rear exhaust sitting flush with the top of the case so the rad wouldn't fit.

So i cut a hole.

Fugly i know, but i got it in.

I bought this second hand ($75) so the tim was gone. Used MX-4 with the sandwich bag application on the CPU and a hazing on the water block.

Second, as was mentioned in prior posts, when i tried to mount the block it wasn't sitting flat.

Fortunately i took a better look at the bottom and noticed it was sitting on a row of caps above the processor. I thought i was FUBAR until i realized that although the top looks square the bottom is rectangular. Turned it 90 degrees and good to go.

That being said i shudder to think of what damage may have occured if i proceeded to try and tighten it down. People have mentioned the "manual" (if you can call it that) is lacking. Definitley feel that some instruction on water block orientation to avoid cap crushing is strongly needed.

Finally got it all in. Set up the fans push/pull as intake. Plugged in the molex power and attached the corsair fans (via Y fan slitter) onto speed controllable header on mobo (i use speedfan).

Powered up, booted into BIOS and watched my processor temps climb 50..51..52..53...

Shut down, tried again, same thing. Noticed i had no lights on the water block. Pushing button did nothing. F-me, didn't plug in the molex tight enough. No power, no pump, no cooling.

Plug it in good and off to the races.

I was using a Noctua NH-U12P SE2 with the noctua fans in push/pull.

Ambient in my room is about 28 degrees (hot summer here).

At stock speeds with the Noctua fans at 100% (~1300rpm) core 1 would idle at 47. If i set the fans to 40% (where i feel they are inaudible) idle hits 51-52.

H80 with fans at an inaudible 40% (~1030rpm) core 1 idles at 44.

I like.

IBT would send my cores into the low 70s with the Noctua.
H80 has them maxing out at 61.

I know, i know, if i put the corsair fans on the Noctua i'm sure i'd see more comparable results, but i'm not doing a mix and match comparison: i'm doing a whole product to product comparison.

The fans:

These fans are loud. REALLY loud. Of course, any fan that spins at 2300rpm is going to be, but they DO push a LOT of air.
At 40% they're nearly silent, but climbing to just 50% they're too loud (for my ears). That being said, i was going to use the Noctua fans on the rad originally, but glad i didn't. They woudn't have the power to cool the rad like the corsairs do.

Right now i've oc'ed to 450FSB @ 3.6Ghz, 1.25 vcore. The Noctua would be at 100% at all times with core1 idling at 55. Load temps would hit mid 70's.

The H80 at only 40% fan keeps it at 55 at idle. Load temps (100% fan) hit high 60's.

55 may be rather hot for an idle, but i'd rather have hot/quiet vs cool/loud.

Lovin the H80.

@erik257 - Thanks for the thread, lots of good info.
@corsairgeorge - I applaud your professionalism. Refreshing to hear a rep that's as up-front, honest, and attentive to feedback as yourself. Keep up the good work.

I'll stop talking now.

The H100 appears not to be the savior everyone is making it out to be. It's probably good anyways. I tried a H50 for about a week. It was very nice. Just needed more. Grabbed this antec 920 from Fry's and it's amazing stuff.
That review has been linked here before. The H100 comes out on top as push/pull, and ties the Kuhler with just push so I think it's a pretty good piece of hardware.

I will be changing my cooler from an H70 to the H100 I just ordered. I have kept a close eye on my temps and will document the change. I have a 600T case so I may have trouble getting space for push pull, but I'll give it a darned good try.....

That's easy, all you have to do is mount it as fans>radiator>top of case>fans.
