Corsair Hydro H110i GT Cooler Starts Selling

Corsair started selling its Hydro Series H110i GT all-in-one liquid CPU cooler, which it launched at the International CES 2015, early last month. It's priced at US $129.99. The cooler consists of a new block+pump main unit, with a higher coolant pressure compared to the H105, because it's feeding coolant to a larger 280 mm x 140 mm radiator. The block features a glowing Corsair logo, with RGB multi-color illumination, which you can customize using the Corsair Link software. The cooler plugs into a USB header, in addition to power, interfacing with the Link software, letting you monitor and control its various parameters.

The H110i GT supports all modern CPU socket types, including LGA2011v3, LGA1150, AM3+, and FM2+. Also included are two Corsair SP140L PWM "high-torque" fans. These 140 mm spinners are a variant of the SP140 series, which lack LED lighting, but feature 4-pin PWM power inputs, offering speeds of up to 2,100 RPM, pushing up to 113 CFM of air, each, with a noise output of up to 43 dBA, each.

could be time to change out my H80i with this one for looks and hopefully a little better performance :laugh:

With 2x140mm you get really close cooling performance as a 3x120mm radiators.

The more surface area on the radiator the more cooling power this is the simple key of watercooling.

Aluminum -Copper !!!!! are not friends. Not good combo .Good results at the beginning of the operation but for how long ?

Oxidation is imminent and will be fatal after extended operation . Copper radiator and larger flow pipe are desirable .

Corsair has come along way. Best Power Supplies and Best CPU Water Cooling. Though I will take a GSkill DDR Ram over Corsair anyday, unless the price is right. But Power Supplies and Water Cooling, its Corsair all the way.

Great Point. Perhaps TechPowerUp can further elaborate on this issue and perhaps provide a test of some sort.
Though I do recall industries do melt and mix both Copper and Aluminum for purposes I am not currently aware of.

except that corsair isn't a PSU OEM, and you can almost always get the exact same PSU from the OEMs for significantly less. The Corsairs do look better though. That being said these AIOs are pretty nice looking and would probably get one from Corsair, if i were in the market.

The amjority of AIOs currently available use an Aluminum rad and copper CPU block with anti corrosion additive in the coolant.

The PSU thing is debatable. The CX series is pretty terrible and Corsair doesn't make any of it's own PSU so it really depends what unit you choose. Delta based PSU tend to have the same performance metrics but are built better in terms of protections. Superflower PSUs have the same performance metrics and come in higher ratings and cost less.

Laughable... "Best PSUs and Liquid coolers".

You must not read quality, accurate independent product reviews. BTW, Corsair does not produce any of their products with the possible exception of DRAM, they just re-brand them. FYI- as far as GSkill vs. Corsair DRAM, it don't mean jack in actual PC system performance. Either works just fine.

For those who don't know, these CLC/AIOs are pointless for 99% of the PC desktop market as lower costing HSFs can provide proper cooling and they never leak coolant to damage your PC. Don't get duped. Do your homework so that you are a technically educated consumer instead of a sheeple.

Uh, what? Just about every single cooler on the market mixes copper with aluminum, whether they're AIO water coolers or air-cooled.

It's not as if there aren't ways to prevent galvanic corrosion.

Exaggerations and inaccuracies in your statements are equivalent to the marketing schemes of major brands. Being an anti-sheeple does not make you an educated consumer.

that’s not a real problem , Asetek units use Aluminum rads and cooper waterblocks, also antec units do, they add some anticorrosive to liquid coolant solution to prevent Galvanic corrosion, the real problem is their integrated pumps and also for some units like H80i because of well known spill issues, also another fact that is pretty important to say is tubes stress due bad management and installation, some tick tubes are quite difficult to manage inside the case..

From personal experience I can tell you that the water flow is drastically reduced after two weeks of use Zalman VGA block andTHERMALTAKE CPU block from the oxidant which is seated into the slots . As far as pipes have only 6 max 8 mm cross-section and are thick only because that they would not be stupid pll broke pipe during installation and operation. 10 mm can give a much better flow .

Unfortunately most Corsair products are just branded by Corsair, they are not OEMs of their own products.

Cases and SSDs are about the only thing done in house, other than their peripherals.

@bogami that looks like the worlds worst block design. Restriction is probably fairly high, and AIO liquid flow at a trickle anyways.

I've yet to read an article that shows AIO leaking is any issue, but we get it, YOU prefer air over water. *smh*

This is a problem in custom loops where people are using mainly distilled water or distilled water with small amounts of additives.

However, the closed loop coolers are basically straight antifreeze or at least close to a 50/50 mix like you'd find in your car, which is a massive corrosion inhibitor.

Using an OEM to manufacturer the product does not make it a rebrand. I don't even believe Corsair manufacturers their own cases, the actual manufacturing is outsourced as well, AFAIK.

Even if the product is based on an OEM design, it still isn't a rebrand. Corsair adds their own design elements to the product. Seasonic is their main OEM for their high end unit, but I don't see a single Seasonic unit with Coresair link capabilities or anything even close. Also, the OEM has to go by the designed Corsair designed. Even if they are using the same platform, the Corsair unit can actually be better than the Seasonic(and vise versa) simply because Corsair decided to use different components on top of the base platform.

And other than Seasonic, most OEMs don't even sell directly to the public(at least in the US).

Delta based PSU tend to have the same performance metrics but are built better in terms of protections. Superflower PSUs have the same performance metrics and come in higher ratings and cost less.
The CX series is far from terrible. They do everything they are designed to do, and then some, at a very good price. Hell, if the CX750 can power two GTX470s, pulling enough power to melt the ATX 24-pin connector, there isn't much it can't power. And I'll put CX430s in office workstations all day long.

In fact the CX series is a great example of just because it is made by different OEM that doesn't mean it is just a rebrand. The CX series is generally made by CWT. They make a lot of crap power supplies. But the CX series is actually decent quality, some of the best quality seen from CWT, because Corsair demands it and Corsair is picking the parts.

And generally it depends on weather you can get a comparable seasonic unit for cheaper than a Corsair. The HX650 is $100 at newegg right now, and has a $20 MIR bringing it down even further. The comparable SSR-650RM from Seasonic is $95. So the Seasonic is cheaper if you don't consider the MIR but the Corsair is cheaper if you do. And which is cheaper will jump from day to day based on what kind or promotion is going on that day.

As for the others, Delta and Superflower don't sell directly to the public in the US. In fact, other than Seasonic, most other OEMs don't sell products directly to the public in the US.

Guys, mixed metals in a liquid cooling loop causing Galvanic Corrosion is a problem that was fixed DECADES ago by the automotive industry and a ton of other industrial applications. Corrosion inhibitors are not new science - they're not even particularly expensive.

Our liquid coolers typically use a Propylene Glycol / Distilled Water combination with heavy corrosion inhibitors to prevent any sort of galvanic corrosion.

I'm going based on my years of experience and usage. I not only use them, I've recommended them to family and friends
Not once did Corsair fail me or anybody I recommend to use them.

Anybody can put an order to have PSU's made and branded in your logo.

Correct!

Putting some distilled water and antifreeze is the best for me... (screw those expensive additives, same chemistry)

But in my experience, the main problem is the radiator, the how clean it actually was... Sometimes they are poorly washed out and still have some particles in it... sometimes active metals left from the welding, soldering process.

But in the end of the story, technology still does not stop the corrosive process... it is just slower... even cars are not meant to run for decades... especially the latest crap that runs off the belt... As with most consumer devices, it made to last 24months and that's it...

Its not oxidation. Its electrolysis or galvanic corrosion. None the less it can be controlled if it has a proper anode. Silver or led is commonly used.

A technically educated consumer wouldn't make such a stupid comment like that! Only sheeple waffle rhetoric that isn't worthy of debate.
Many people have very practical reasons for AIO cooling systems and custom loops, space, temperature and appearance are three reasons.
I have yet to see an AIO system leak, or a report of one.
