Corsair has through time, established itself as the consummate leader in the closed loop cooling category. As one of the first companies to start selling these units, they have enjoyed a position as a known source of quality and performance. And in light of the H100i, I have to say that there are few who can rival it’s quality. The fit and finish of the Corsair H100i like the H80i is superb. It is a professional quality unit, that a novice can install. Add to that the well built Corsair Link software and this unit has plenty of appeal.
On the other hand, performance. While yes, the H100i does achieve a 4.9ghz overclock, it falls short of the supreme performance objective of reaching a 5.0ghz overclock on our test unit.
Over all ThinkComputers.org would like to award the H100i an 8 out of 10 score!
- Fit and finish
- Ease of installation
- Corsair Link
- Poor performance for a 240mm unit
