You mean like THIS THREAD in the Water Cooling forum?

Been there about 3 weeks now. Results are very good.

Ah, sorry. I was thrown off because this thread was about the H80.

corsair reps, if it's not already in the works, consider something like this.

If you're worried about compatibility constraints, make it so that they would be oriented next to each other to fill roughly the same space as the H100(might have to get creative such as alternating the order which the fan and the HS is mounted) and include long screws which would allow the two to be mounted from the same fan area.

I know there'd be a number of compromises, the second rad(or both) would likely have to be a bit less dense and costs would go up, but a TON of people would like to effectively double their surface area.

2) If the answer is yes, send them a unit and a reviewer's guide that explains our internal results.

If their data doesn't look similar to our data, it usually means something's wrong with the review unit. We've had this happen before with PSUs, coolers, etc. And we usually end up fixing the issue by sending out a second sample.

But there's no "conspiracy" here. Reviewers for major websites get to pick and choose what they compare the H80 to, not me.
Fair enough. It just seems odd that every major website that has put out a review thus far has entirely ignored what is widely considered the best air cooling option on the market. Having done some review work, I've been "prompted" by certain companies that I not compare X or do Y in my reviews, with the obvious implication of losing access to future hardware. I've never done work with Corsair, so I have no personal experience that Corsair engages in such policies. Instead, I'll take your word for it, since you seem a legit dude.

Nonetheless, the bottom line is I absolutely need to know how the NH14 compares to the H80 or H100 before I can make an educated purchase (of which I will admit I am hoping to be convinced of the H100). I prefer the much cleaner look of the water cooling loops in my case in contrast to the skyscraper tower of the NH14 or my current Prolimatech Megahalems. But if I can get -5c on the NH14, given that my temps are always sky high, I want every inch, you known?

Awesome, right? Get me one on order, pronto!

I think we all know here what the real deal is.

Within the review is a small pretext at the bottom of the page, many pages before the results that not many would read.

"During testing, our Corsair Obsidian Series 800D chassis is equipped with its default fan configuration; a 140mm drive-bay fan, a 140mm lower compartment fan and a 140mm rear exhaust. The rear exhaust is removed and replaced by the Corsair radiator/fan when testing the H50 and H70 coolers.

All dual-fan coolers are installed in a push/pull configuration, and five of the six coolers are configured to exhaust hot air to the rear of the chassis. The only exception is the Noctua NH-D14, which, when used in a large 800D chassis with an ASUS P6X58D and Corsair Dominator memory, is simply too big to implement horizontally.

As a result, Noctua's gargantuan solution is configured vertically and has one fan in close proximity to the GPU. With no top exhaust attached to the chassis, we suspect the NH-D14 will deliver sub-optimal results in this configuration."


Who sent or decided this would be reviewed on a Corsair 850D with the top fan missing, Corsair Ram too tall for an air cooler to be mounted. What a complete sham of a test.
