Windows 7: Thoughts on Corsair's H100i Cooler

I don't think his case can handle 140 or dual 140mm rads in the top. It seems to be configured for a set of 200mm fans, or 120/240/360mm rads. Now.......if only there was an all in one unit that used a 200mm radiator and fan........

It will accept the X40(140mm) rad in the back, but he wants to fit a unit in the top of his case.

Then in my mind it's the Thermaltake 2.0 Extreme or Pro.

I agree 100% with that. Do you HAVE to use the software on the Thermaltake extreme, or can it work without it?

With or without and speaking to that it's a limited generic software package that could have been problematic in my system so I removed it as with Noctua fans I run my pump and fans wide open off 12v and it is dead silent.

Cool! My Intel unit doesn't have any software and that's the way I prefer it.

Again, that sort of configuration is not something I would entertain. I simply don't want something like that hanging off the back of my case, regardless of configuration. It's a personal style thing with me.

And yeah, the Thermaltake 2.0 Extreme and Corsair H100i are in the running, though the H100i is in the lead with it's sytling.

BTW which ever way I go, I may replace the fans with Noctua NF-F12 fans at a later date.

Either way you go is a good choice.

I've used the H50,H100 and am currently using the H100i without any issue's but I've always used different fan's to the stock one's. The Corsair Link software work's as it should and is pretty much set and forget but you don't have to use it as you can run the fan's off a controller or your motherboard. I did have to return my H100 after a year as the fan controller in the pump started to grind a bit.
I'd buy another H100i when the time comes unless there's anything better for my budget at the time.
