Corsair H110i GT Review

Introduction

We think it's fair to say that we've been anticipating the replacement for the H110 for quite some time now, and at last, it's finally here.  Ladies and Gentlefolk, we give you the brand spanking new Corsair H110i GT.  Like the H110 before it, it’s a twin 140mm fan based 280mm radiator unit.  Corsair though have of course made a few changes, the first of these being the face lifted cold plate pump assembly which now sports a brushed Aluminium style central section, into which is cut the Corsair name and logo, all of which is still illuminated via RGB control with the link software.  The Radiator itself is also subtly different, being some 10mm longer but 2mm thinner.  The biggest change though that we can see is the choice of fans.  Gone are the 35dB(A) 1500rpm models, replaced instead with faster and noisier 43dB(A) 2100rpm units.  These fans will we think most likely enable to the H110i GT to take the performance crown, the question is though, will they be too noisy at the higher RPMs?  We think a great deal will hinge on the unit's performance at more balanced and quiet settings.

Cheers Tom been waiting for this review.

The silver trims on the rad and block can be removed and replaced with a red or blue one.

Yes, i'm not sure I agree with everything but certainly i'm not going to hate on this at all. I did think the H100i pump block looked better and cleaner however I can appreciate this one is matt black which if it survives Corsair's packaging should stay looking fresh for a lot longer.

One thing, are the grey clips not replaceable? Why are you banging on about glue and hair dryers guv, I thought the idea was they just clipped off, is that GTX's only or something? Earlier in the day I was thinking to myself 'but it's gonna be upside down for some people' then I realized if they make it the wrong way up on the back when you swap them over it will be the right way around for everyone. Then watching the review it looked like they did exactly as I thought... but then you said glue. If they are infact permanent then I despise how poorly they fit around the octagonal part.


I can appreciate you must do A LOT of testing for these cooler reviews with multiple overclocks and multiple fan speeds all for an extended period of time. That must be time consuming. But I feel that it's a bit wasted when they aren't directly comparable from product to product.

By which i'm trying to say the Kelvin obviously has slow fans. If it had 2700RPM fans it would have humiliated everything ever but then you would have given it a shoddy award for being uber loud. Similarly the Nepton which is comparable size and product I have no idea how it 'actually' compares from the graph. ie. performance per db. I know it's not your style to analy measure noise levels and go nuts and I appreciate that because it's something the end user will never do either. But it would be great to have a result for every cooler at one fan speed and heat load. Not 12v or 7v! Just say 1500RPM. If it would be a total PITA to control each fan like that (it wouldn't you just need an Aquaero in the test rig) then maybe use the same fan every time. Just a directly comparable result at which the reader can sit back and think right at this noise level which is acceptable for me X cooler will perform the best.
