Retesting the H100i in the Arc Midi R2, then the H220 is going in to be tested. Have the stock fans from each, and NF-F12s, testing all three on each.


For the PWM splitter, my board has CPU and three other PWM controlled headers. However only the CPU header is controllable by speedfan. So Ill be using the CPU header for the splitter to run all the fans, and the pump in one of the others, using the motherboard to set it separate.

i'm interested to see if your h100i/h220 comparison falls in line with my findings.

Make sure when plugging the pump into one of the PWM fan headers that they're either headers sys_fan 2 or 3. Sys_fan 1 is not PWM controlled even though it's got four pins. I just looked over the manual for your board.

Thats kind of odd, because there are 4 Sys fans, 1-3 are controllable via PWM in BIOS, and 4 is not. Its constant. Maybe they made a typo?
Ill use 2 just in case though.


ez12a, in your results, I didnt see anything about ambient temps. Were they being monitored?

I have a thermometer sitting on top of my case, next to the intake fans.


Testing Methods

Cooler mounted to the roof in an intake/push orientation (meaning the fans are intaking air from out side the case, and pushing through the radiator in to the case). Push/pull is used for the CNPS20LQ when using the 2x fans. Fans are 3ft away from my head in normal seating position.


Prime95 AVX small FFTs 15 minute runs are used for load testing. A thermometer is placed right next to the top fans to measure ambient temperature.


Core Temp is used to record temperatures of all cores, idle and load. Idle will be taken at 800RPM fan speed 30 minutes after the Prime95 run was done. Sound readings will also be done at 800RPM.



Thermal Paste

Small line of MX-2 between 3570K die and IHS. The CPU will not be removed from the motherboard, so this will not change at all.

Small dot of MX-2 between IHS and cooler block.




Fans

First testing will be done with included factory fans, limited to 1800RPM.
1800RPM was chosen, as that is the max speed of the Helix fans from the H220. Also, anything over that is just unreasonably loud with the SP120Ls.

I will also test the SP120Ls, Helix, and Zalman fans on a quiet setting. The RPM will be different from each, but will set them so they produce the same DB rating (29Db +/- 1Db) as NF-F12s 7V at 3ft. Idle testing will be 800RPM from all sets of fans.

Then I will test with Noctua NF-F12s. These are highly regarded fans, that are very quiet and smooth sounding, while offering good air flow and high static pressure. These will be tested at 1100RPM, which is the speed they run with the LNA (Low Noise Adapter).

Only other case fan installed is a stock Fractal rear exhaust at 7V. There is no perceivable noise from this fan at sitting distance. The Twin Frozr fans on the MSI GTX-670 is manually set to 30% fan speed (lowest setting). PSU fan will not be spinning.

For sound testing numbers, I will be using the sound meter app on my Nexus 4. This isn't the most accurate way of getting true decibel readings, but since it can be used to tell whether one is louder then the other. It will be placed directly next to my keyboard on my desk, and sitting directly above the fans on top of the case, with no other ambient noise.

They were not, but my small 1br condo on the ground floor stays at a comfortable 72F (thermostat right outside my room) pretty much all day long without HVAC.

Good luck on your testing. I would've done a more 'controlled' experiment but I gave up my h100i a long time ago. when I did that stability run with the h100i, i had the windows open too overnight.

even with a +/- 2F margin of error, it only equates to approx 1C difference. Doesnt account for the 5C higher temperatures with the h100i.

I wanted to give everyone an update who was getting bubble noises from the pump. I just took mine out and turned it over with the fill side facing up. The bubble noise was 99% gone in less than one minute.

Not trying start an argument or anything but if you already bought the H220 why do you care so much about the H100i? If you dont like the unit or it dont perform as well as you want i say return it or sell it. I can care less what the H100i can do. I bought the H220 because i wanted it and i plan to expand it later on. I say enjoy your purchase and stop worrying about other coolers. Like i said not trying to start an argrument just my 2 cents.

If you're referring to me, I compare the two because:
1. H100i is the closest competitor to the H220 in out of the box form and function.
2. My experience with the h100i wasnt good, and i was gladly looking at other solutions. Call it disillusionment with Corsair. And I did return it, only after 2 weeks of having it. CorsairLink was such a sad piece of software.
3. Swiftech must've thought the same as #1, hence why it had one in their live demo at CES.
4. People like TTL have publicly declared the H220 inferior to it, and to this day hasnt retracted his statement. I want people to read this thread and buy it over the h100i.

Simple as that, really.
