Nice job there. We're seeing more and more people completely removing the hard drive and optical bays to place radiators. You must have awesome air flow. What's the load temp on your 2500K?

ok all. i know this may of been asked before, but i searched and got no results. i wanted to put some anti-kink wire on 2 H60's and 1 H100. i wanted to know the tubing size for both, and if possible some pics/links of people who have already done so. Also if possible, the length of both sets of tubing. ty

Thanks. But the air flow it's not that great since I'm running my fans on low and that way not much air is blowing through the rad. My temps on prime load are about 72 never exceded 75 celsius. On gaming load is abou 56-58 max.

hey guys. Time for that promised H80i review and group of pictures.
Boy, its been an hour maybe installing all this only because of my youthful mistakes and double checking. The actual installation is rather easy, its just my case is crowded and my hands are large. Fun stuff.

First impressions: Very nice Newegg packaging. Very nice Corsair packaging (Quite well designed, nothing will be broken inside this likely). I was surprised by how light this baby was. Very good quality on the fans and connection.

Instructions: I didnt look at them too much, thus some of my errors. The pictures were rather easy to follow and pretty much the only thing I looked at for confirmation.

Mounting brackets: Now here's possibly the only thing I don't like. The back-plate is cheaply made and rather annoying. I think it might've been made of plastic. Either way, it gave me the most issues of all. the Intel 1155 bracket was not that bad (Bracket sitting on top to fasten the cooler down to the CPU). Also, you could not easily tell how well seated you were, as you cant see how the cooler is contacting the CPU. All in all, it seemed like something Corsair should definitely improve upon. A system much like the Hyper 212+ mounting system would be loads better.

Fans: Good fans, awesome that it comes with two. Not too noisy. One thing that frustrated me is the manual said they had arrows inside to show direction of airflow. For the life of me I could not find those arrows. Ended up comparing the fan to how I had my Antec fan in and I got it in right. P.S. These things push massive air even on a low-med RPM!

The tubing was very nice and quite flexible, as I had to twist them quite a bit for my case..I did not seat the pump/res? as well as I could have, and it did not take a liking to my case..A bit of a tight fit.

Startup: Oddly, upon the first startup, the fans started at 100% speed (very loud!) and I dont know why. A second later, the Corsair LED turned on. Then the fans slowed. I guess the fans were told to run at 100%, then the Corsair Link kicked in and told em to slow down.

Performance at stock i5 2500K (3.3-3.6GHz as per boost, whatever it would boost to):
Hyper 212+ // Corsair H80i
Idle: ~35C // ~29C
Load with F@H: ~55C // 41C MAX after 30+min of Folding.
I was suprised by the idle temps. Granted, as I said earlier, I was hardly able to properly seat the H80i since it was a tight fit and the twisted tubing made it want to turn and turn and turn the wrong way.

Performance at 4.7GHz Intel i5 2500k @ 1.425vcore (Yes my baby requires that much volts frown.gif )
Hyper 212+ // Corsair H80i
Idle: 35-40C I believe // 35C
P95 load (F@H stopped working) : 70C max // max 60C, avg 55C.

4.7GHz scores very impressive, with the clock and vcore it has to handle (Plus me writing this as P95 is running). Two cores generally stay near 55C, while two others stay at 52/53C sometimes.

Overall, I am very pleased with this product. Corsair would =/= quality but some minor adjustments are needed with the backplate/mounting bracket design and materials aswell as the location of the supposed fan indicating air flow direction.
Picture time! Many apologies for the low quality smartphone pictures.

My trusty assistant named Whiskers. Shes got whiskers almost bigger than my 9yr old dog and she has a tail almost the length of her main body. Shes under 1 year old.







Thats it! Theres my review.
Can I join the club? smile.gif

(Pardon the awful picture)



I got my H100i a couple days ago, and have been very pleased with its performance (FX-8320 @ 4.8 GHz, max temp during IBT: 53C!)

As you can see in the picture, due to the rather small case I have (Zalman Z9), I had to mount the rad to the inside of the top of the case, and the fans on the outside in an intake configuration.

Currently, I have to plug the fans into the motherboard since I am experiencing the rattling problem that seems somewhat common in the new models.

I am also having trouble making the H100i show up in the Corsair Link software, I hope that that issue can be solved with the upcoming firmware update as well.

Note that I am running Windows 8, which may not be officially supported by the Corsair Link software.

If it's the same kit, with fans that are not as good, how could it achieve better temps?
No matter how much I look at some of these pictures, my H100 does not look like a rusty old Ford.

Are there any pictures of the waterblock? I would love to see a comparison between the regular and the i series.

Some nice rigs and good info in this thread, I've been following it since I started looking into alternative cpu cooling for my first build. She's only been running for a month or so but I figured I'd jump in an switch out the stock intel fan as soon as possible. Went with the new H100i of course, going into my C70 with a stock i7 3770k on an ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe mobo. Installation seemed like a breeze, watched a few install vids including corsairs but I've run into a few concerns I figured I'd share here before I continue. Keep in mind I'm also completely new to building PC's redface.gif

1) Pre applied TIM - I've measured the amount on the cooler block and it will cover the entire cpu and then some, basically drowning the cpu & socket in TIM. A few people in the H100i review thread & the corsair forums say there is way too much, this seems obvious to me. Should I remove some to ensure no leaking/overflow onto the mobo/socket or should I wipe it clean and go with another brand TIM?

2) Backplate / Standoffs - While mounting the backplate & standoffs I've noticed they don't sit snug against the motherboard, I could probably fit a penny between the standoffs & mobo. I'm using the supplied 1155 standoffs. I've looked through several threads on corsairs forums stating the same problem from people using varied motherboards. Most people with this problem recommend using plastic washers between the actual backplate & backplate nuts going through the motherboard. However several people don't recommend this, stating it's the way it is designed and when the cooler is seated, the thumbscrews should pull both pieces together, essentially eliminating this space so it sits snug. I've even read someone was instructed by corsair customer service that they might need a universal backplate. sadsmiley.gif

A couple links from other users discussing the problem, first link includes images..

http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=104576&page=2

http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=109596

Anyways, just my luck, I decided to try and install on thanksgiving so now I'll have to brave the black friday mobs if I decide to head to the store tomorrow for some TIM & washers biggrin.gif I may end up just going for it and seeing how things turn out but FIRST, I will be filling my belly with a delicious turkey dinner! Thanks in advance and if you celebrate it, HAPPY THANKSGIVING OCN!
