Works well, Corsair Link interface is simple and snap to install. I'll post some test temps soon.
This is a great cooler and it keeps everything nice and chilled. during my Linpack single run, core temps never went above 60c. Installation was easy for me (experienced builder) but the instructions had hardware mislabeled and plenty of procedural gaps (which resulted in 1 star being removed from my rating).
Another changed component!
I started out with the H80i GT - and while that performed well I knew it wasn't going to continually meet my requirements.
This clc fits perfectly in the radiator tray of the evlolv itx chassis, with room on each side for positioning.
My only complaint would be the lack of orientation of the corsair logo on the radiator itself. It'd be simple to do a single design that fits both sides of the radiator regardless of positioning. Obviously not a performance issue, but it bugs my attention to detail aspect.
Amazing improvements to the H100i, keeps cpu cool and is easy to install. Fans are quiet and keeps thing at good temps.
This was a difficult choice because I'm editing video, not gaming on quad 4k screens. I decided to over-engineer and go with the best. While the tubing seems super stiff, it's flexible enough to work even into my small case.
Not the quietest thing in the world. Maybe noctua fans would help
Made a pretty significant difference over my old 212 evo. As far as $/performance, the 212 evo was better but it didn't allow me to achieve the OC I wanted so my experience yields the following:
Works well, its software is very nice and easy to use.
The H100i V2 is a good AIO, and it keeps my 4.60GHz CPU at a nice 65 C at full load (benched over 12 hours on RealBench) on the "Quiet" setting. I can't make it any hotter, so it's doing it's job. Changing the glowing color of the Corsair logo is pretty sweet too, even if it eats up one of you USB2 headers.
I like this; it was easy to install. The instructions could have been better. I can't tell you about relative cooling performance though since I've only used this cooler on this chip. But, install was pretty easy and it keeps the chip pretty cool.
Great addition to keep the CPU nice and smooth, looks neat and really does its job. Also has some additional tools to help monitor it, and a changing LED. However it is rather cheaply built - for example, the back plate is made of plastic. Probably because they know nobody's going to see it in most final builds.
