All the H100i does is extend Corsair's new fetish with having software monitor everything to the H100 from the AXi series of power supplies. The AXi power suplies are among the best on the market but that has more to do with Flextronics being the manufacturer than anything else. Don't get me wrong I think it's a great idea to be able to have real time monitoring in just about everything but the H100 is still the H100. It has not been redesigned to cool any better than the old version. It will equal or slightly exceed a high end air cooler.
