Corsair H100i vs Phanteks PH-TC14PE

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello all. I just had a question in mind which do you think would be better for me? The Corsair H100i or the Phanteks PH-TC14PE? I want it to quiet but good at cooling my CPU.

Considering the H100 is not quiet at all, your decision has been made. Its quiet if you run it on low, but in that case youd get better temps with a high end air cooler. On performance settings, the H100 is very loud.

The Swiftech H220 is quieter and cools better than the H100. It does cost more though.

RX7-2nr is right
The Swiftech H220 would outperform mostly all AIO kits in cooling and noise.

However, for $140 spent on a AIO, you could spend an extra $10-20 and get a custom loop like a XSPC kit that you could potentially ADD and MODIFY in the future. This way your not stuck with a closed loop that can only cool 1 thing!

Wish you best of luck mate, check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZgctchIQ7M , great video to show you why and how the h220 is a superior aio smile.gif

My Vote: Phanteks PH-TC14PE
I used the Corsair H100i with Corsair SP120mm Quiet Edition fans and it did a great job.

EDIT: It also depends on your case.

I see your point, but the H220 is expandable just like any other custom watercooling kit. The pump is FAR more powerful than any Corsair unit, powerful enough to feed the CPU block as well as at least 2 GPUs. H220 pump is better than the XSPC pumps unless you upgrade to a more expensive model.

According to Martin and his Liquid Laboratories, the H220 performs lightly better than the RS240. This seems to be because the H220 fans are better than the XSPC. When you use the same fan, the kits perform the same.

You can add a radiator to a xspc kit and add another gpu block
I don't think you're going to add another radiator and gpu block to the swiftech h220 whos pump is right on the cpu block smile.gif

Was just trying to give my opinion to the OP that AIO kits are basically that, all in one, they are not made to be modified or changed. Custom kits are basically that, custom, prepackaged but custom enough for you to change any part of it that you want.

My case is gonna be a Corsair C70. I might go with the Corsair H100i since I want my case to have a lot of room and easy to be put together. But thanks for the suggestions biggrin.gif.

wow really? I am indeed surprised mate..
I just assumed at paying such a high price for the h220 one would rather have a external pump and fully "custom" kit

+1 for swiftech:thumb:

I never like to give negative criticism but, please research a lot about this corsair smile.gif the problems are never ending whether new batches or old batches.
I personally bought a h100 and after the problems i had and the problems i read about on the internet i did not dare buy a h100i

GL with the searching !!thumb.gif
