New Corsair Hydro H80i and H100i - Page 18

If you need to plug your fans somewhere else than where they should be, that is not acceptable at all if you ask me. Thats called a broken product.

I've had only minor issues using the stock fans, connected in stock fashion, using the manufacturer-provided software. These were quickly addressed with the latest firmware/software update. What's running in my build right now is not a "broken product".

 

The "Quiet" preset on my fans in Corsair Link now is exactly that, quiet. Now, if a user isn't satisfied with the Corsair Link software, and wants to use another method in order to reduce noise levels even more than what the software-based fan controller is able to do, then that's a strength of the product in my opinion. A product that allows the end user to add or subtract fans, use a different controller, mount the rad multiple ways, etc., is what I like to see. I'm not locked into a single configuration. Don't like the fans? Get different ones. Don't like the LED? Turn it off. Don't like the built-in fan controller? Use your own or your motherboard.

 

But since they're using software to control the fans, there are a lot more compatibility issues that will take some time to be rectified. That's how it is when you introduce a new product with updated software. There will be kinks considering the huge number of different OS and hardware configurations and conflicting installed software. And from my perspective, Corsair is doing a great job listening to the consumer and working hard (and quickly) to fix the issues that we as users discover.

 

And Simkin, this isn't a rant directed at you. I found your comment to be a good starting point to discuss some of the issues and solutions that have come to light during a few weeks of owning the H100i.

That was a very well thought out, comprehensive, explanation on the introduction of new technology into multi-faceted environments. The fact that you've not had any real issues with your setup after the firmware upgrade speaks volumes about Corsair's attention and care for their client base.

This has re-enforced my decision to pick one up. Definitely a big fan of this product! thumb.gif

Im currently contemplating between the H80i or the H100i for my new build to cool my 3770k. Not quite sure. My case is gonna be the new CM Storm Scout II and I've seen a 240mm radiator in the top with the fans on top of the case in a pull setup which I'm thinking of doing but I'm still debating. Reading through this whole forum post has been very informative and have helped me towards deciding.

I'm planing to replace my NH-D14 with a H100i but i have a simple (or stupid ^^) question, is it possible to keep my 4 x GT 1850RPM connected to my lamptron fan controller or i must connect the fans to the waterblock ?.

You can keep them hooked up to the your Lamptron. The H100i doesn't require that fans be connected to the cpu block.

Does the rpm lead need to be connected to the cpu header to actually see rpm in the corsair link software or is it just to keep the motherboard happy?

As far as I know, it's to keep the mobo from throwing a "no cpu fan" error. I'm fairly certain that Link sees the rpm through the USB link cable.

I'll pick up the H100i tomorrow, i just hope the new tube design will reduce the leaking chances, i understand with the old H100 the chances were 1/1000 but still, i hope its completely solved with the new models.

ps: Does anyone know if liquid on the H100i/800i conducts electricity ?.

Everything seems very solid on my H100i unit, so unless you start yanking on the hoses, you'll be fine. Can't hurt to briefly leak test it if you're worried about it. I imagine Corsair uses something other than distilled water (which doesn't conduct electricity) so I will go ahead and say that yes it will conduct electricity.
