H100i vs H110?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of getting an AIO and I can't decide between the H100i or the H110. I have looked at Swiftech, but I am just going with Corsair.

If I buy the H100i, I will probably add Noctua NF-F12's.

If I buy the H110, I will probably add Noctua NF-A14's.

Do you think adding Noctua's will improve the performance any? I am mostly doing it so they are quiet, but extra performance doesn't hurt. smile.gif

Both are within a few dollars of each other at Micro Center, so price isn't an issue here. I would have to order the NF-A14's from Newegg or Amazon though.

I have a 750D with a 4790K.

What do you think will work better? It's a really tough decision. Also note that Corsair Link is really buggy and practically useless from what I hear and have read, so that isn't a pro here.

Thanks.

H110 is better, 280 vs 240mm, Noctua Fans won't make much of a difference temp wise.

How is the mounting system on the H110? And the stock fans?

I've only used the stock fans for a few days before replacing them, one fan would rattle sometimes, which annoyed me. The mounting is ok, could be better. H105 has better mounting.

H110 every time. it performs better and quieter out of the box. it will still perform better and quieter with those noctua fans you plan to add. the H100i and H110 are $10 apart in price in microcenter. two NF-F12's are $10 more than two NF-A14's and they are louder fans with less airflow (both slightly, but the 140mm is better). that said, an H100i with two NF-F12's is the same price as an H110 with two NF-A14's. it makes no sense to consider the former. though the mounting on the H100i is the easiest I've ever done.

As long as it isn't crappy like some mounting systems, I don't think it will bother me.

I'll probably have to use the stock fans for a few days if I buy the H110, since Micro Center only sells 120mm Noctua and 140mm P14 FLX fans.

I'm considering the H110 more and more since the Corsair forums are just littered with H100i problems. I've heard they have good support, but I would rather not deal with it if possible.

Good to know, thanks!

I've heard the mounting system is great with the H100i, but I care more about performance. smile.gif

From what I've seen, the H110's mounting system doesn't look too bad, but Asetek could do it better.

H110>h100i due to cooling ability. The fans are garbage, but that is to be expected.

Noiseblocker fans are probably the best replacements. The noctuas are just too damn ugly. I have many of them and they piss me off every time I look at them.

Well, I bought the H110 but I'm having a bit of a problem. I am hearing this annoying buzzing noise.

At first I though it was the pump because it was only running at 1150 RPM but that was because of Q fan, so I manually set the speed in the BIOS and still have the problem. Connected it to a 3-pin to Molex and still have the problem. It could be these stock fans though.

I'm also getting a sound that sounds like a hard drive, which I'm pretty sure is the pump. I can't really hear it unless my head is next to the case though.

This thing was a pia to install, but that could be because I didn't use the adhesive on the backplate.

I don't mind the color of the Noctua's too much. They aren't my favorite color, but it's not too bad.

I replaced the stock fans on my H110 due to a clicking and buzzing noise.

The noctua fans dropped about 2C with just pull and 3C in push/pull for me.
