The Hydro H100 heatsink ships fully assembled, filled with a propylene glycol based coolant and plumbed. The waterblock is connected by 24cm of flexible FEP tubing to the heat exchanger which measures about 274x120x25mm in size. Two 120mm fans are...

Without a doubt if you want the best all-in-one water-cooling kit, you have to look at the Corsair H100 model. For a long time kits like these have been slightly less competitive to the higher-end air-cooling solutions on the market. H100 has changed...

I've been using consumer-level, self-contained liquid CPU coolers for about four years now, and it seems Corsair has found a good balance between price, performance, and quality when they developed the H100. Dual radiators used to be reserved for...

We can’t deny that the H100 is an impressive cooling kit – it can cope with some of the hottest processors we’ve seen - even at its quiet low fan speed. It also costs a heck of a lot less than a custom water-cooling kit. Unfortunately,...

Water cooling rigs used to be only for the dedicated or foolhardy. Custom waterblocks, galvanic corrosion issues, sourcing coolants and quiet-enough kits, and that was before the big leak or dud pump. Today, the experience is much improved with closed...

Both the Corsair H80 and H100 offer significantly improved performance over Intel's liquid cooler and allow for stable overclocks at a higher frequency than the Intel product can reach. Between the H80 and the H100, we like the H100 more--provided...

We are seeing that self-contained liquid cooling units are becoming increasingly popular, as technology improves and offers lower maintenance, better performance, and cheaper prices as things move ahead. The days of the garbage all-in-one wannabee...

Self-contained liquid cooling systems are practical alternatives to full-sized liquid cooling systems in terms of price and ease of installation. Self-contained units also offer significantly better clearance on the motherboard compared to large...

time : Without a doubt Corsair has managed to firmly secure the top spot with it's Hydro 100 all in one cooling solution. The 240mm radiator seems to pay off, besting the Hydro 80 with a few degrees Celcius. Corsair included two fans, identical to...

Since the results in the end are very similar between the Antec 920 and the Corsair H100 you will have to just make up your mind on which to choose. The Corsair has a fan speed controller that I like, this I missed on the Antec. The 920 performed a...

The Corsair H100 was the best CPU cooler we’ve seen to date. With its 240 mm radiator, which is twice the size of the radiator seen in most sealed liquid cooling systems, it outperformed all the air coolers and liquid cooling solutions we tested...

In terms of overall performance there is no denying that Corsair’s new H100 is nothing short of spectacular. Its large dual bay radiator, two high end fans and excellent block design allow for temperatures that until recently seemed impossible for...

In the world of CPU coolers nothing ever stops developing. These days you can pick a hundred differnt heatpipe based coolers, many are shaped, formed and priced the same. The better heatpipe based coolers are good though. Next in line are LCS...

When we last took a look at a Corsair cooler, the H80, we were impressed by the build quality and design. In the case of the H100 we have a product which follows...

Quality (30% of the total score) Quality has never been a concern when reviewing a Corsair product as the company designs their products to withstand long term usage and punishment, severely outliving the components they are supposed to power or...

Since our normal CPU cooler test system was not used, the results from the H100 testing will not be added to our temperature database, but that shouldn't really matter since it's in a class of its own. There are no other 240mm all-in-one liquid...

The Hydro H100 is a leap for the closed loop water coolers as it brings a larger 240 mm sized radiator to the mix. This is a logical step to take seeing how popular 240 mm mounting points are in modern cases, and also helps improve the performance of...

The Corsair H100 is the first ALC unit that has really impressed me, which is an achievement in itself. Cooling performance excels all previous single radiator ALC units including the thicker Antec KÜHLER H2O 920 unit. But more importantly, it is...

Should you be about to spend nearly £80 on a cooler, you'd better live somewhere incredibly hot, or make damn sure that you're going to overclock the pins off your CPU. Let's assume you are, because this Corsair H100 liquid...

The Corsair Hydro Series H100 has proved to be the best performing self-contained liquid cooling solution I have tested. In fact, it's the best performing solution I have tested so far, aside from a custom water loop. This of course falls entirely...
