Best Water Cooler I Can Get For Under $100? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
I run a Corsair H70 myself. They're a fantastic little unit. Your rig should be able to hold an H100, as it's a 120x240 radiator (2x120mm). The smaller Corsairs are 1x120mm.

the h100 is better, it has more surface area = better cooling. thumb.gif

The H100/H100i basically gives you more headroom on Heat then a H80 does thanks to the extra RAD room and fans, might not see a temp drop with a H80 vs H100, but you want see you temps go up as much with the H100 smile.gif

linus tech tips did a video recently comparing all the high end cpu coolers, water and top end air coolers. iirc there was about a 8° temp difference between the h80i and the h100i...

For under $100, I would say the H80i. If you can add $39.99 more, you can get the Swiftech H220 in a month or so. The H220 will perform better than the h100i and will also give you the option to put another radiator in the future.

H80i will give you lots of breathing room. I've been using Corsair coolers for quite
some time now and love the reliability and zero maintenance is also a plus!

H100i Is also worth it if your case can fit it! thumb.gif

First thing I thought when I saw this product and read how it's better than the H100i: DAMN! Now I feel like saving up tongue.gif
Well, I'll see. Ether way, a H100i doesn't seem so bad, but a H220 looks pretty awesome! So I can save up for the H220 or soon go for the H100i

Hmmm, decisions decisions.

EDIT: Wait a minute, isn't the H220 that one watercooler that was shown off in CES 2013?? It looks familiar to me!

Yeah, the H220 was shown at CES. The h100i is limited to how much it can cool due to it having only one radiator. On the other hand, an h220 gives you the option to add more radiators. You already have a Megahalems, just wait until reviews come out for the H220 and then decide on what to get.

Edit: Go watch the four videos on the Swiftech website. http://www.swiftech.com/h220.aspx

yea, the H220 was unveiled at CES. absolute BEAST cooler. Defiantly worth the extra $40.


Closed loop coolers like the H100 are gate way drugs, once you get one you will want to go full custom loop in a few months. i think i had my H50 for like 3 weeks before i decided to sell it and build my first loop. The H220 will let you upgrade your loop much more easily. I really think its the best product of 2013. for the price and expand ability options, cannot be beat!
