    It would be nice seeing preapplied paste vs a preferred enthusiast paste. This would be a unique feature to the reviews and would be interesting to see because lately I've been seeing more people unable to match the temps of stock paste. I presume this is because stock paste has gotten better, but I'm also suspicious of the ideal thin layer application being hard to replicate.


    I deleted it because I thought it was a little harsh to post here as it was unrelated to the review and more of a complaint against Corsair and poor design in general.


    Anyone know the release date?

    Should compare with Noctua NH-D14: an air cooler that is arguably better than h100.

    Corsair water cooling is good and customer service is top notch if you get the rite number ;)! It all depends on your cooler orientation and fan's your using.

    if the temps on hw monitor made any sense i think an AMD FX 8350 may be a really good choice for a thermal solution testbed... its pretty hot, o/cs well, and temps scale pretty well too...

    anywho, what i really wanted to say is that i think comparing this to the H/70/80/80i could have been a better choice...

    You do realize your comment can't possibly be on the mark when we're referring to a deleted post...

    Nice to see this.

    I only miss a temp bench with the same fan for all tested coolers, many swap fans, don't we...?

    Awesome review! Maybe you guys could have used an AMD system since they overclock well at higher clock speeds

    +1 to the request to change stock fans with other fans (can show how good the radiator is + noise difference);
    also at least one high end air cooler + 1 mid end cooler...

    I think it is best to use stock config when comparing different cooling solutions at stock.
    Using different fans would be good for a separate review that compares stock fans to certain aftermarket ones.

    LGA2011 is fine. I can't complain just because the reviewer uses a different system than my own.
    I'm running 1366.

    what matters is that the same system be used for all the tests

    Personally, I would have liked to see this compared to more closed-loop coolers. I'd like to know just how much advantage a H90 would give compared to my H60 with push/pull fans.

    Only guessing, but I would think the reason for this new product lacking Corsair Link support is due to all the issues w/ the h100i software.

    My h100i is currently being shipped and I'm not sure what to do once I get it :|

    AS long as it's not a sleeved bearing, those fan always die when you put them horizontally :/

    I'll see with corsair, this might replace my CNPS10x

    Nice review, i currently have the H55 and i'm pretty pleased with it.

    it manages to keep my A10-6800K OC @ 5Gh 1.5V, the iGPU @ 1020Mhz and NB @ 2000Mhz 1.4V at 62 C full load with ambient temp 26 C. i changed the default fan with an artic cooling F12 PWM (7 USD at Amazon) which is quieter and i barely can notice the fan running.
