Just my opinion but, I've owned both in previous builds. In 20/20 hindsight I might have paid the extra $50 for the Swiftech H220 over my $90 H100 but it wasn't available 18mos ago. And for the money the H100i (appx $95) compares favorably to it on a purely performance level depending on your end goals. see [HERE] biggrin.gif

Take your detailed specs/setup, thoughts and even screen shots of benchies over to the Corsair Hydro forum [HERE] and I think you'll find the guys quite helpful in possibly spotting something we might have missed? wink.gif You may just have a "hot" running 3930K and a custom loop is your only solution to get those overclocked load temps back down to your expectations?

Fair point, cheers mate.
Off chance, what should my H100i temp be if the CPU is at 60c right now?
Cheers.

Edit:
H100i Temp = 45c
Pump = 2130 RPM
i7 3930K 3.8GHz HT Turbo
V-core 1.3v (To increase heat)
Ambient 20c
Fan speed medium (Push/Pull)
Rad outside of case
Highest core temp 72c
Average CPU temp 67c

Time to RMA or are these temps normal?

Intel Core i9 9900K HT 5GHz
GIGABYTE Z390 Ultra
AMD ASUS STRIX OC VEGA 64
G-Skill Trident 2x8GB DDR4 4000MHz
Samsung EVO NVM.e 250GB

Those temps seem quite Normal to me. That's a bit of an odd test though (just a vCore increase). I like to do a base stock settings bench/temps, then OC from there, and of course you'll see some lower temps with different setups, but I wouldn't be worried with those temps. I'm not familiar with the (i) series "Link" software so I can't comment on what measures the H100i temp as stated above and what it should be relative to the CPU core temps. Check out the Corsair Hydro forum and maybe you'll even find another H100i/3930K owner to compare with wink.gif

Will do, cheers.
I just increased vcore to quickly generate much higher heat btw. biggrin.gif

Will installing this help with my case temps and air flow since there isn't a huge heatsink blowing hot air into the case?

I was gonna take my exhaust fan and mount it on the top for a second top exhaust fan and use the h80i fan as my rear exhaust.

You should see lower case temps if you use the H80i set up in exhaust in your case (not intake as recommended by Corsair). You're correct to use the H80i fans on the H80i. They are high static pressure fans and are made to push/pull air through a thick radiator. I hope you have room for the H80 and adding your 2nd case fan up top. Looks like it could be tight.

You can even get creative with designs if aesthetics are an issue, although once the rad is mounted, no one would notice anyway wink.gif

Thanks. I had already been thinking of cutting out my rear fan grill already for noise reasons but I guess now I have another reason:-)

Only read through a few pages but didn't see much mention of the Rosewill Thor v2. I just got my stuff in and have the H80i, fits just fine. I'm sure the H100i would fit up top perfect as removing the 230mm fan gives plenty of room.

I bought an H110 a few weeks ago to use in my Cosmos II, where it was NO problem at all to install. But then I thought I wanted a smaller case. Bought the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2, which just came out here in Denmark. Here's the result, though I'm still missing 2 fans for it.



And it's SILENT tongue.gif

Now updated with new pics and push/pull on H110 in a Fractal Design Arc Midi R2

Does anyone know if my H80 will fit in the front of a Fractal Define XL R2 (not sure if tubing will reach that far)? I'm in the market for a new case and want something that will accommodate a H80 in the front with plenty of room behind the mobo tray for cable extensions and management.

I just finished installing the H100i into a Thermaltake Tsunami Dream. If anyone would like to see the mod just hit me up. The rad is laying on the bottom. Ive heard this is not the best position, but it works great!
