Corsair H100x Review

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, 

 

Well I used to have a Coolermaster Seidon 120mm AIO and the pump gave up after about 5 years. Anyway I spent a long time looking around the various things on offer and I finally went for the Corsair H100x. This is the cheapest 240mm AIO in their line up because it doesn't use the patented Asetek kit and instead uses one supplied by Coolit (I believe) and this means that they can get the price down by not paying royalties. I ended up paying £79 for the AIO and I thought I would post my findings here as there isn't really much coverage of this cooler on the internet that I can see. 

 

My system is an Intel Core i5 4690k with a Gigabyte H97n-Wifi Board. under the old CPU cooler I used two fans in a push pull config, I used Akasa Piranha fans which I have always been a 'fan' of. I also use a NZXT Grid v3 to control all the fans but the Rad pump is plugged directly in to the motherboard. I use a Nvidia Super Palit Jetstream 1080 GPU. The games I play mainly are NFS and BF5.

 

Under the old 120mm fan I would get around 32 degrees idle, occasionally dropping to 25 on a cold day. Where i live at the moment the temperature is around 3 degrees Celsius. When gaming I was hitting temperatures of up to 70 degrees C on the CPU according to the Cam software. Now with the new H100x my gaming temperature is 35-38, this is a huge decrees! 

 

I have tested the new rad using 2 Piranha have fans, 2 Corsair Fans, all 4 fans together and even no fans at all. I can say that using 2 or 4 fans  doesn't really make much of a difference. the temps remain at the same when under load or idle. The new idle temperature is between 19-22 degrees C.

 

I would definitely recommend getting this cooler.
