Pretty impressed with the H100

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just thought I would make a thread giving some quick results of my new H100, compared to my Antec Kuhler H20 620. I am using stock TIM and stock fans (2) that came with the H100. I dont really have many results of cooling with my 620, since I have only had my 2500K for a couple weeks, but one thing you can take my word on, a stock Corsair H100 beats the Antec 620 with a Push/pull setup by about an average of 8-11c. I cannot wait to try my Deltas on the H100.

The ambient temp was 25-26c at testing time for h100 test. Most likely was 1-3c cooler during 620 test.

Antec 620 with 2 2000RPM fans in P/P
Maxed out at 78/86/85/80 with cpu clocked at 1.48v


Corsair H100 stock fans (2) setup in exhaust (push) configuration, out the top of my HAF 922.
Maxed out at 70/78/78/73 with cpu clocked at 1.512v.


These results net about 8c difference in temps with the H100 test at slightly higher volts.

When testing a H100 at 1.32v temps maxed at, 55/59/61/55
Antec 620 maxed at, 66/69/71/67

This is just an FYI for anyone thinking of pulling the trigger. The Antec Kuhler 620 is right around the Corsair h60 in benches. Price wise the H60 and Kuhler 620 are good coolers, but at $89.99, the H100 has not disappointed me at all.

Pretty impressive compared to the H70. Massive disappointment if you ask me, I can't stand this cooler. Hits high 70s on COLD ambient temperatures with 1.312v.

Yeah I feel you. I like the temps at 5000mhz, but no way i am going to run 1.48-1.5v 24/7. Ill just keep it at 4500mhz and 1.30v. Had to test out the H100 though. Thinking of replacing stock fans with my Deltas, but not tonight. Maybe tomorrow. Also I have read that P/P on the h100 does not give a great advantage, mainly because of the thinner radiator. But if i try that in the future i will add my results to the post.

Very nice! I must say that your desktop looks almost identical to mine! I have all my stuff in folders labelled exactly the same! Haha

EDIT: Also, if you have some old fans lying around, gut them and make a shroud, will make a little bit more of the radiator from behind the fan hub usable.
