[HardOCP] Corsair H100 Review - Page 9

post #81 of 84
So does anybody have a good idea of exactly how the h100 compares to the h80? I'm positive that the h100 will fit inside my HAF 932, but is it really worth it compared to the h80? How far do you think it would be possible to take an i7 2600k with either?

I'm aiming for about 4.3Ghz, if not a little higher

And this may seem like a ridiculous question, but with a more elaborate radiator, is the h100 significantly more difficult to install than its lower-level Hydro series counterparts like the h80?

According to Corsair's own claims the H100 with 2 fans performs about 2°C better than H80, so it's probably worth it if you get 4 fans

You can take a 2600k to 4.3 GHz with any cheap cooler (probably even with the stock cooler), so expect at least 4.6 or maybe even 4.8-5.0GHz with a H100.

Also I don't see why the install would be harder, it's probably as difficult as installing a H80 and easier than the older hydro coolers.

I prefer the aesthetics of the thinner radiator on the h100. In terms of performance, they appear to be similar, with the h100 holding a slight edge. I don't think either is more or less difficult to install, as long as your case can support it. It's just screwing in the radiator and mounting the backplate/faceplate.

4.3 ghz is no problem on an i7 2600k. You can probably hit 5.0 if you're willing to take the voltage to the requisite level.

I cancelled my order for an H100 a while back. Looks like I would have been impressed with the results (was using CM Hyper TX3) but I'm glad I went with the Rasa kit as I'm going to silence my GPU with it eventually. In a way I owe the H100 for getting me into WC
