I'm pretty sure I saw more than one professional reviewer saying the Swiftech H220 is better than the Corsair H100i. I don't think I can just take this guys word on it. Could easily have been a wrong fan direction, or he could have had the tubes all twisted up who can really say but without more than a he said she said arguement I think the jury's out on this one haha.
edit: Here's a source that shows the H220 outperforming an H100i at idle temps to prove what I'm saying is somewhat backed.
edit2: Even more benchmarks claiming the H220 outperforms. http://www.techoftomorrow.com/2013/pc/swiftech-h220-cpu-cooler-review-and-benchmarks/
and 1 more for good measure http://www.xcpus.com/reviews/corsair-h100i-vs-the-swiftech-h220

Idle results show the Corsair H100i to be a few degrees above the Swiftech H220 overall. The results at idle are close enough that they are basically the same. When we look at load temps, we can’t say the same thing. With temperature differences as high as 10 degrees Celsius above the H220, the Corsair H100i seems to be no match.
