Their H100, H80, H100i & H80i have a long history of problems. Now the new H100i and H80i are having pump failures.
Have been running mine for quite some time now, like a year.

Tek Syndicate posted a video recently with the Xigmatek Dark Knight Night Hawk edition showing similar performance to a H100 on an i5 3570k sock and a 4.5GHz OC.

The Phanteks and SB-E aren't just close but also beat the original H100. The H100i easily beats the original H100, whilst being quieter and the new H110 improves on the H100i by another 5C and is quieter.

To be honest I would get the H80i rather than the H100i, as it's a better cooler oddly enough. However, currently the AIO's produce a lot more noise for the performance and have trouble keeping up with traditional coolers when using them under comparable noise levels.

To me they're just not worth it, especially as Corsair and other manufacturers (they don't produce anything themselves) keep using low quality parts yet charge a lot for them. When they finally start using copper radiators and quality hot plates and pumps we will finally see traditional air coolers dethroned. Till then people will just have to live with excess noise (my H70 gets so loud when I stress my CPU mad.gif).

If you want to cool your cpu just for a benchmark, a custom open waterloop does wonders with only spending 20-25$ lol.
(Just tried, that's why xD. I only bought a cpu block and used just water from crane..)

honestly, even at the same performance levels, i might consider one if they were able to significantly increase the pumps on these units, and i've had bad experiences with both CoolIt and Asetek products.
