Take off the rad, sell it, put your own 280 on :)
Thats what the Swiftech is made for.
I'd of made something like that a long time ago if it was that simple. You need a res, not just a rad. Nobody is making a res/280 combo for that position.

Which reminds me, do these top mount AIO coolers actually function properly? Swiftech's res angles up, the res on these asetek units looks like it might not do anything in that position which might explain some of the noise issues with the pumps.

Swiftech has 280 rads, simple for them to make a version with that one them to be added.
The res to angle up, it is to trap bubbles in there.
As for the noise in the AIO, the pump is weak would the the cause to have issue matched with air bubbles.

The H220 uses the Apogee HD block which I can bet on it's so much better than the Asetek one that the H220 smaller rad will outperform any 280 AIO like this one.

Looks like the H110 incorporates the refinements from the H100i. Nice thing is, both will fit in my Arc Mini. :)

I've already got an H100, will probably upgrade to the H110 when it's available. (Won't get Swiftech in SA.)

Yes, the bubbles will settle at their highest point and flow just as it should...
the real problem can come in when you try to mount it on the floor.

I really hope this means an SP140 is in the works over at corsair towers...

I have a Corsair H80i and honestly I would never buy another Corsair closed loop water cooler, my problems with it is that it's extremely low quality, after screwing and unscrewing the radiator a couple of times some of the screw holes on it are basically stripped, I can only use 2 screws on one side of it, the cpu bracket is very poorly thought out, it doesn't account for different motherboard thickness and it doesn't put enough pressure on the CPU, I had to use rubber washers to be able to install it properly, the package was missing 4 metal screw washers (which seems to be a common issue), for some reason corsair link doesn't work for me anymore, I guess the IC for that died (the Corsaor Logo LED doesn't show either) and there are many people with the same issue if you look at the Corsair forums, and in the end for what? Something that cools moderately better than a CM Hyper 212+; to get proper cooling out of this thing you need a pair of turbines on the radiator, if you want a decent silent solution your only choice are some PWM fans, like Noctua or Be Quiet, but you won't get the best performance with those, and the H80i will have the same cooling ability as a mid-higher range CPU cooler.
I would RMA my cooler, but after reading how many people have done that and have still gotten broken parts, and since the pump still works, I'll just stay with it and get pissed every time I think about it.
Spot on. Thank you for your review.
Unfortunately it's the brand that sells, not the coolers. Remember, Corsair is "awesome".

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didnt Corsair buy out Coolit? These look close to what Coolit was putting out just before they closed the doors. I won a Coolit Vantage cpu cooler, LianLi case and many other items in a contest they sponsored just before shutting down. I'm using them in my current gamer and the cooler has been outstanding regardless of cpu used. Just wondering if Coolit's quality designs suffered after the takeover.





Some temps at idle and while gaming with the 980X...





A mild clock...

If Corsair would have bought CoolIt than they won't be using Asetek's units for the H110 and H90 :)

I've used an H50 for over a year, and now an H100 for over a year, and never had any problems with either.
