Rampage 4 Extreme with H80 or H100

Currently i am confused between the H80 and the H100.
I want to choose one to use with my Rampage 4 Extreme (RIVE).
I want to choose based on leakage rate and performance.

As for the performance the H100 wins, but as for the leakage it is higher than the H80.
After searching google for H80 leak i have found only one topic , and they did RMA his H80 , no information if there were a hardware damaged or not.
Asking local resellers about any incidents about the H80 , they all said no problems with it.
As for the H100 there a youtube video and a about two topics and few accidents told by the local resellers , but they also said that it was not a leakage , it was a burn , and that users installed them incorrectly.

I want to know what you think should i go with , and if i am going with any of those too , will there be any additional information on how to install them on my RIVE to avoid any future accidents.
Also , are there any counter measures that are used to early alert me if there will be any leakage?

I really do not want to mess my hardware up.


Thanks for the support.

I'd vote for neither, and go with a good air cooler that will perform about as well for less money. Both are made by Corsair and built with very similar pump designs. These are sealed coolers but that does not mean they cannot leak. If you are afraid of leaks, you might wish to do more research and look for other options, but in most instances, these coolers don't leak.

If you are wanting to get an H80 or H100 simply because of the 'liquid cooling' concept, then you might wish to seek other alternatives once you compare the cooling performance compared to normal air coolers. If you truly want water cooling, there are very different options that will perform far better for around the cost of an H100.

I did the search and i bought the Noctua NH-D14 which did not fit with my backplated graphics card , the problem is that i could not return the Noctua , cause it has nothing wrong.

With a large air cooler, its a wise idea to get the dimensions for the cooler and ensure clearance....same concept as fitting a radiator.

I checked compatibility before changing the graphics card from a non back plated to a back plated one.

Well then by rule of thumb if your case supports the h100 go with the h100 what case do you have?

Read the middle reviews when pricing out items its unfair to read the top or bottom reviews. In order to get unbiased information read the middle ones. for a closed loops no hassle stand alone water kit the h100 is the current best. Now when using a real water cooling loop it really cant compare.

the reason we don't like the system is because it has to use antifreeze type coolant because they use aluminum radiators, where normally for water cooling we use a distilled water based coolant and Copper Rads. (Aluminum in a rad can/will cause corrosion overtime. witch is why they use antifreeze coolant less conductive at the same time is less heat absorbent)

That is what I was thinking as well but see with the x79 board he may need to change out his ram depending on how he has it setup.

The h100 is great the only complaint I have is the fans they are awful. They are loud. I would go with noctua fans that came with your noctua over the h100 corsair fans.

I feel kind of embarrassed after looking at it again the installation it looks like it only screws in one way I was thinking maybe you could turn it facing venting out the top but there isn't screw in the top middle or bottom middle hmm. If someones done it i'd like to know to I swore I've seen it =\ here it is. Although I still think it going from side to side would be the best option.

there are two options.
I put it facing the rear , and that is what i have tried which did not work out.
or i could make it facing top/graphics cards which is actually even worse.
:) 

I will probably go with the H80, and install the fan taking air from outside top.
hopefully it works.

I think its a bummer that you're going to have to swallow the cost of the noctua cooler. Hopefully you will be able to use it for something else.

I'm sure the h80 is fine but like I said for me personally I would change out the fans. They can get quite loud and from what I remember from using them have a bit of a ramp up on boot. here is a picture of my h100 not the h80 but so you can get an idea.



using these primarily for there high air flow and low speed/noise.

but noctua fans are good to the 120mm fan. They are very expensive :p

The NH-D14 comes with 1x 120mm and 1x 140mm. So he could use one with the H80 but he would need another to push pull :)  Which is why I brought up push pull because the H80 is a strictly 120mm fan supported closed loop system.
