Corsair H110i GT Review
Up Close: The Radiator
The radiator measures 140mm x 322mm x 27mm, making it slightly longer but also a fraction thinner than its predecessor. Corsair have also opted for a more angular look, which is imparted by squared off edges to the end tanks. Each side of the cowling also sports a brushed Aluminium effect strip, widening towards the end to accommodate the Corsair name and logo.
The radiator itself is made from Aluminium, with the cold plate being Copper. Corsair don't give figures for the fin density but our measurements put it at 20fpi. On the whole, the fins were straight but we did notice one or two that had received a bit of a knock either in transit or more likely at the factory. We should add that it's very rare to unbox a radiator from any manufacturer and have it arrive with no bent fins whatsoever, so this is nothing unusual.
The ports on the end tanks are positioned with a bias inboard to the radiator edges, which will to some degree improve fitting options as they would otherwise undoubtedly be hard up against the case edge were they any further out. The tubing is quite flexible, though not so much as the Fractal tubing we looked at recently, but then the Corsair tubing does come covered in a very nice gloss black braid. this isn't a technique we've seen before, but we do quite like it. The terminations into the radiator are further protected by dense spirals which should help to resist any tendency to kink at the port. All in all, the radiator is very well made and nicely presented, with the brushed Aluminium effect strip on each side completing the aesthetic.
