H110i GTX (asetek) is a little better than H110i GT (coolit), and the H100i GTX (same as V2) is 1 degree hotter. So comparing H100i V2 vs H110i GT I would say they are equals. 140mm SP fans are usually louder and harder to find, also. The H100i V2 is a better option IMO.

I really don't think that is the case as said by Corsair's own employees

Actually, going for a CoolIT built cooler might be preferable for a plethora of reasons:

  • CoolIT H110i and H110i GT have two fan controllers. H100i and H80i have four. All Asetek built coolers have only one.
  • CoolIT can use any temperature source, Asetek can only use the cooler temperature.
  • CoolIT based coolers offer better LED functionality
  • Firmware on Asetek built units is not upgradable by the end users like the one on the CoolIT


Still for Corsair's own admission the hardware on the Asetek is silly. In light of all of this I am not sure I'd call Asetek product "superior"

Yeah, I read about that too. But I prefer to buy based on reviews and numbers than based on gossip. And everywhere you search Gen5 Asetek's are superior to basically any other AIO solution.

Was a happy owner of a coolit H80i for almost 2 years, nothing against the brand. These new asetek's are just better.

Anyway, both have 5yr warranty, only time will tell.

What do you mean with this:

I can read any temperature with my H100i V2 and control it's fan/pump curve based on any temp reading from the system. Actually, I use my pump at 100% full time (can't hear it) and my fan curve is based on my GPU temperature (since I run a strictly gaming rig and the CPU is not stressed at all with the other things I do)

I dont think this does make any sense, Or its not accurate enough.
Improved pump wont beat 2x120mm Radiator IMO.

Did they still using same thermal paste until last cooler, this is important thing !!

As far as I know, Corsair uses For Corning TIM, which they tested a few years ago. They said it equals Shin Etsu TIM. I wouldn't replace the stock TIM unless I had to remove the cooler for some reason.

Edit
Stupid auto-correct. That should have said Dow Corning TIM.

Could anyone tell me how hot the water on the H100i gets when the cpu is at 65-70ºC? With those temps I read 33-36ºC liquid temperature on my H100i V2. Is that normal?

I MAY have exagerated on the MX4 though. Will replace it with a thin layer of Kryonaut as soon as I get my hands on it.

EDIT: Boy, those SP120L rattles A LOT when mounted horizontal. Will have to replace them...

I agree, Corsair's stock TIM is very nice smile.gif

When my CPU gets about 57 the water temp is around 32.7-33.6

So, it sounds about right?

Hi there ! i have a question that has probably been answered but im not ready to read the 2780 pages of this thread so please forgive me lol

I have an H100i V2 and i can change it's led color when plugged with USB header. But i need that USB header and after reboot (unplugged) it goes back to red, and sometimes blue color ..

Is there any way to keep it white without plugging it to the internal USB 2.0 ?
thanks fro helping smile.gif

I believe there's an option where you can save the current settings into the device so it keeps it memorized even without corsair link installed. It's under Options > Devices > "Use current settings as default"
