Should I get the H100i or H110? They are exactly the same price on Newegg, and I just want to know the benefits of each, as well as your personal opinion. I have a Carbide Air 540 and a 4770k. Thanks!

you will need to change the fans on those , they are noisy and annoying so be careful you will pay alot more than you think for 2 fans. around 40$ more.

There is very little difference (both produced excat same thermal numbers in "balanced" and "performance" modes at stock....i does better when OC'd under load).... both are noisy as hell (the "i" gets 38.2 versus 38.4 db) ....and when ya change the fans ya lose the tiny cooling advantage they had over the better air coolers.

However, this performance comes at a cost; noise. At 2600RPM, the H100 isn’t a quiet unit at all and similarly at 2000RPM, it can still be quite intrusive. In terms of performance per noise, high end air coolers from Phanteks, Noctua and Thermalright still reign supreme, contrary to Corsair’s own marketing. Like other ALC units, the H100 relies too much on high RPM fans for its performance when the goal of water cooling is generally for extreme performance at low noise levels.


The Phanteks w/ stock fans is cheaper and cools better than the H100 with slower fans.

Are you trying to sell me a mobo? Lol I already have one. And if you are trying to sell me full water cooling, you're talking about another $300! Also H100i's and H110s will not leak. It's extremely rare, probably as common as heavy air coolers cracking mobos.

Go with the H100i, it has thicker tubing and digital control. And you're better off with 120mm fans because you need static pressure for radiators. 120mm will produce more static pressure than 140mm any day. If I remember correctly, the H100i was on sale for $89 on Newegg just last week. Though I will warn you that the fans you get from the H100i sound like jet engines. If you're deaf, no problem. But if you want peace and performance at the same time, get Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 fans, those are pretty much the best all around radiator fans, and they're pretty quiet. You can even get 4 of them and go push-pull if your CPU is made of lava.

Re-read your first post. You correctly wrote 110 in the title, but in your first post you put h100. Maybe you could check for your own mistakes before having a hissy fit over something that is your own fault.

I also do not like the closed loop watercooler fad. It needs to die off fast. It obviously it just for show when there are better performing air coolers for less money. When someone who knows about this stuff sees a build with a $100+ closed loop water cooler they know the buyer was not very informed about the decision. An air cooler is always a better idea. It makes WAY less noise, cools the same or better, has ZERO chance of ruining the entire system with a leak, and aids case airflow.

Point is, closed loop water coolers are a waste of money because the same or better performance can be had cheaper with less noise. There is no chance at all that the motherboard will break from an air cooler. I challenge you to find me one case where a motherboard was torn apart by an air cooler. For this to count, the motherboard must be correctly installed and the cooler as well.
September 3, 2013 4:44:10 AM

actually i think closed loops still work a bit better under full load when compared to air, maybe only a few degrees ... however the right air cooler can still keep mild OCs fairly stable

The difference between a corsair h100i and a noctua nh-d14 is 1-2 degrees. So basically nothing. No point to buy it. Water coolers are just noisy and expensive. They are a fad. Proper watercooling is the way to go if you want water cooling. Otherwise air is the obvious choice unless you are trying to spend extra money for noise and the ability to say you have water cooling. (although these closed loop coolers don't really qualify as actual watercooling)

Air coolers are 1/4 perceived loudness and come within 0.5C thermally but you don't get to tell ya friends "my system is water cooled". !

This is incorrect. A radiator + water weighs 2x more than a HUGE air cooler. Liquid coolers weight alot more than air coolers.
September 3, 2013 3:21:47 PM

Great advise for everyone but for those loyal to the big "C" I suppose (take it or leave it) but Im as green as it gets at this stage but I do have common sense. So pull me up where I go wrong please.
500 gm and above for an aircooler bolted to a mobo is nuts. Cantilevering less than 500gm is acceptable unless you are sticking it onto a flimsy ASRock board or such.
Circuitry boards hate flex, vibration and extreme heat. and they are getting worse as manufactures cut costs, especially the lower end boards, this is where intermittent failures crop up and drive you nuts thinking it's something else. So the water block solves all this (maybe block pump vibration should be measured for quality of build too ?)
Am I correct in saying that the CPU produces the highest heat, then dont blow that heat over the cooler parts in the case heating them up - object of all this is to keep your cool.
So take the CPU out of the case lol or isolate and transfer the heat out and up (heat rises so dont fight it)
This is where the rad is in its element, also when the power is off, the heat in the rad will continue to help drawing cool air in from the bottom for some time.
All rads need to vent out only and preferably at the top. I read about putting rads into the bottom of the case sucking in the cooler air, why? its not a vacuum cleaner but your floor will probably appreciate it.
Forget those silly small box rads and go for as big as will fit. triple and up
then you can slow the fans down even further and will draw less current from the PSU further reducing heat and noise levels too.
From what I have read , C is out, (the H100i is only written about so much as something had to be chosen as a bench mark for others as it was one of the first (down side is the competition only had to better it by 1 degree temp to be king) anyway Aquacomputer is my suggestion

Everyone who is talking about boards flexing is 100% wrong.

There was a test done where MANY different motherboards were tested when properly fastened to the case for flex. The CPU socket was strained in EXACTLY the same manner it would be when you have a CPU cooler installed. ALL boards required multiple lb/ft of tension for the board to crack or he CPU socket to de-laminate. Yes POUND/FEET of tension. No CPU cooler is going to do that. A properly installed motherboard can support many times more tension that the heaviest CPU coolers without batting an eyelash or flexing at all. Its just a fact.

Before Asetek came along, large coolers were standard fare (they still are) and there has been no epidemic of failures or problems, I am far more worried about leakage than I am about MoBo flexing. Not that the risk of leakage is significant, just that the risk or damage from warping is even smaller. The scientific method involves examining the data and drawing a conclusion that fits rather than picking a conclusion and trying to find data to fit. That data just isn't there.

Flex does not happen? wrong, seen a video review of an ASRock mobo flexing being taken out of the box. try adding 800 gm weight to it and then
sorry but please dont say 100%. its like people saying they tried 110% ,
The reviewer even commented he heard a crack but it still worked to his relief . would any one be interested in buying that board ?

Motherboard are DESIGNED to flex. ALOT. You can bend a motherboard a long way before it fails. Once it is fastened down to the motherboard standoffs there will be no flex even with a heavy cooler.

September 3, 2013 4:28:46 PM

The video confirms Asrock quality but does not address the question. Your MoBo is tied down with screws.... your cantilever is therefore reduced from MoBo width to the spacing between the screws. Then ya have the backplate which spreads the load over the entire area....further reducing ya cantilever to the distance between the mounting screw and the hold down screws. From an engineering standpoint, the argument is without foundation.

If ya worried about cantilever issues, the area to focus on would be GFX cards which have one corner wholly unsupported.

Yes, totally agree. Even though a GPU is screwed the the case, a GPU will create more torsion on the board than any CPU cooler will.

yeah but its bolted to the case.. or externally so its weight doesnt matter .. either way im still having a debate with myself wether i should by water or air .. like i understand the nh d14 is a great cooler but its SO BIG.. its a hard one .. but i also have the problem of .. if i mount a rad internally im going to have to do some custom work so its not just pulling hot case air through it.. and if i set it as an intake then ill have too many intakes and not enough exhaust .. ai ai ai.. but this is another thread lol so ill just keep reading everyone ones advice!

This is incorrect. A radiator + water weighs 2x more than a HUGE air cooler. Liquid coolers weight alot more than air coolers.
