    Looks like general improvements. Like better fan, rad, pump etc. Nice find. Can't wait to see reviews.

    I too would like to know about the gpu question.

    It also comes with the USB cable and software to implement Corsair Link Digital Dashboard, which previously was a $100 option (now $59.99 on their website). This is obviously their answer to Water 2.0 Extreme, which has the monitoring software included. I'm not sure if it includes the cooling module or not (which let's you control 5 fans and 3 temp probes), but at least it has the software and cable. Corsair's webstore shows both flavors of the H100 and H80, and the i versions are the same prices ($119.99 and $109.99). Wow! I guess Thermaltake is really cutting into their cooler profits, looks like a price war is happening. Also notice the upgraded water block, perhaps Corsair's answer to Enermax's "boundary layer killer"? All of which is great for the enthusiast since it will encourage innovation while keeping prices down. But I'm mad now because I have the old version of H100!

    I predicted this when I saw the coolermaster h20 cooler. Now every company and their dog is making water coolers... PRICE WAR!

    So no one has anything to say about the gpu cooling? An antec 620/corsair h60 is able to keep a any gpu, even the monster of a 480, below 65c.

    Good question! My guess is because the GPU is more efficient, since it's designed to crunch only video data. I'm probably wrong so don't quote me!

    Can't wait to see some reviews to see if there are any big changes to its performance.

    I like this H100i and I will change my H100 probably if performanse is better.
    I can OC 3770k for sure more than 4.8GHz with little better cooler. I need 5-7C less temps.

    People come on some compare H100 > H100i stock fans on both with 3570k/3770k.
    It's far best CPU for testing all kind of coolers. :)
    What is with review, forums, call CORSAIR, ask for sample...

    I doubt this revision is going to be something H100 owners like ourselves are going to find value in upgrading to. Had they moved to a thicker radiator or built it out of copper, or even moved up to 280 vs 240 there may have been performance enough to upgrade. I'd be surprised if the difference between the H100 and H100i is more than 2-4C at non-extreme OCs.
     
    Super XP, PatoRodrigues and INSTG8R say thanks.

    Hopefully it doesn't cost an arm & leg for these new improvements. :p

    But I think it worth to try if someone is fan like me.
    I can sell my H100 for good price, because people can't buy CORSAIR things in Serbia and only 20e more and that's H100i. I sell my H70 and cross on H100 too. It's normal when someone love CORSAIR
    I am one of people who when see something and wish that no chance to buy other things same performance only that what decide or nothing.

    I have an H80i and 100i arriving tomorrow, the H80i to cool my new and free Bloomfield 950 replacement for my old 920 C0 and the 100i for the 3770K which i will be getting next month for a new build as an early Christmas present to myself :)

    I buy first H70 for Christmas present for myself, exactly that morning retailer deliver to me.
    H100 I buy for my birthday before 3-4 months.
    DEAD SILENT FAN, NOISE ON BEGINNING IS FROM FAN.
    But I expect only CM all in one in Serbia, but never mind I will laugh with CORSAIR H100i
    Ahaaahaaa Ahhhaaaa You can't imagine how I hate poor offer on IT market. People must lose money on options and choice of retailers, not their choice.

    Because when I bought H70 I ask Why not round tubes and I expect that in H100 and No.
    Now finally have round tubes and these best looking fans on market today.

    I ask and they will sell maybe same version SP120L in their shops for Push>Pull.
    Only need one 2011 upgrade kit with 8 more screws same to hold 2 more fans.

    stay away from the H100i and get the normal H100, fitted one to my system the other day which was running a normal H100 (which had to be RMA'd with the no pump light and dead fan speed button) the replaced worked perfect.
    the H100i arrived and was fitted making a horrible noise from the pump and stranges noises from the fans, Corsair had put up a new firmware, which was flashed using the latest corsair link software (no older versions had ever been installed), clicked update pump noise disappeared instantly ,fans went to full speed, software said updated successfully looked at the pump and pump light was off never to come back on again or be detected by corsair link again, looks like theres a fair few others with the same problem.

    pump still worked, fans are stuck on full. funny enough my temps were cooler with my original H100

    I have been using the H80i for a week now, albeit my motherboard failed yesterday, all I can say is it is fantastic....... better in fact than my old H100 that I only used for a month before I had problems and in the end took a refund and went air, this performs as well but is of course more compact and cheaper. If you like a near silent system then you may only want to set the fans to "quiet" as anything more is a little noisy, even the next setting up which is "balanced" shows a marked increase in fan noise.

    Having said that, for 24/7 use the "quiet" setting eats up most things, I ran a i7 930 at 4.2gig 24/7 on 1.375v and on linepack the highest temps were 73C, if I changed to balanced then they would reduce to 66C, at 100% fan speed we are talking fifties C.

    I will wait little more to see more comments, preformance because at this moment I don't think about Link and anything similar. They can say, update firmware and noise will gone... but what is with people without CORSAIR Link.
    Balanced is OK for me, I have gaming PC not HTPC.
    I love when hear fans little, nothing to disturb me only little...And H100i have options for MAX speed same when you connect fan with molex I think.

    The problem with that is your now at around air cooling HS performance , unless you stay at stock clock speeds .

    Lol, I had a top air cooling setup (Noctua D14) before this and I could run her at 4.2gig 24/7 but that would be in the eighties in Linepack, this thing is an improvement over that and my old H100..... do you know how toasty Bloomfields can get?

    I do. At 4.2 ghz my 920 ran over 90c regardless of what was cooling it. Literally it laughed at my attempts to tame it's heat. Was perfectly stable though.

    I missed you are using the newer i versions but say compared to old h100 the D14 is very close to it, within few c .

    I don't have or used corsairs water kit but from what I saw from others and reviews , once you set fans on low setting it didn't fair well , performance wise .

    So it seems your results match Link review I posted . Seems they did make decent improvement over older kits .

    I think the main improvement is radiator depth and improved fans. Your right in as much as it's only a few degrees better than the Noctua but it is smaller and quieter (on quiet) setting.
