AIO choices

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi new to the forums and was just after some advice

looking at getting an AIO cpu loop, was looking at the corsair ones mainly the h100i or the h105.

was thinking of using the h100i in a 750d in push/pull

or a h105 in push in a 750d

can anyone give me any advice on these or any alternative products?

thanks

currently running a 4770k with a asus formula vi motherboard

I've used the 100i and a CM Glacer 240L, the 240L did a better job of removing heat and has a bit quieter fans. It has a cooper rad instead of aluminum and is expandable. I added a gpu block and res to mine later on and it performed very well.

Technically the Corsair H110 pulls ahead of both of those units, but I'd stay way from it after owning it personally. Don't get me wrong, it's a great unit and it keeps my CPU nice and cool (even when I had a 4770k), but it's case compatibility is poor and even in a nice sized case like the 750D good luck trying to get P/P if you ever decide you want to go that way.

I'd go with the H105 and go P/P you should be able to fit it in the 750D like that. The H100i is a nice unit, but in a situation where every C counts (staring at you 4770k...), the H105 does pull ahead slightly in its ability to wick away heat. Don't quote me on compatibility with P/P with the H105 though. It'd be best for you to ask over at the 750D Owner's Club

Also, it'd probably be best to ask what thickness radiators people are running instead of just asking about the H105 because there are a lot of people with the 750D that are running really nice loops. Just in case you don't remember the H105 is 38mm thick, so with P/P it would be 88mm thick. So, if someone is running a 60mm radiator and they still have a bit over clearance, you should be just fine.


Hope I could help. thumb.gif

Welcome. I'd recommend the Swiftech H220. It outperforms most other AIOs, and is made by a real water cooling company. It has a good thick radiator made with copper fins (most AIO radiators come with aluminium fins) and the fans are alright too.

While the OP does not state where he lives. I would like to go ahead and say the H220 is not available in the US according to Swiftech's website. The newer models are available in the US but are almost twice the price of an H105. If the OP doesn't plan on expanding to a full custom loop, the H105 is one of the best options available.

I have had the H100i and an H110. They are both excellent coolers and handle pretty nice overclocks. The H105 is probably what i would go with of the units you listed though. I was actually looking for one when I bought the H110 but they were not available yet. As for fitting the H110 as one member said, they can be a pain. I mounted two fans on top of the case and simply placed 140 mm screens over the top and then mounted two more 140mms inside the case beneath the radiator.

thanks all for the advice there's lots of information there smile.gif I have mentioned on the 750 club thread and someone said about mounting offset closer to the window for extra clearance (not quite sure what they mean without having a 750 in front of me) im also after some advice on overclocking to go with the new cooler, not done any before but when I tried to apply the auto OC from the ai suite windows failed to load frown.gif

just had a few more replies whilst I was replying im in the UK

For an overclocking guide on Haswell. Look here Lots of good information and a bunch of people willing to help. Just make sure and read the guide a few times before attempting to overclock, and preferably keep the guide handy on another computer/phone to read through it while you are in the bios.

As far as offset mounting I know what they are talking about. I actually did it in my Air 540 in order to run a UT60 (60mm) 240 radiator in P/P

Here are some pictures to help you understand. thumb.gif
