Corsair H110i GT Review

Up Close:  The Cold plate and pump assembly.

The cold plate exterior is constructed from dense plastic and sports a brushed Aluminium effect central section imprinted with the Corsair name and sail logo.  Aside from the tubing there are quite a few power, monitoring and control connections to the pump,  These include a SATA type power connection, two PWM fan power leads, a fan speed monitoring cable and a mini USB input for connection via the included cable to the motherboard header that enables interaction and control via the link software.

The cold plate has two 90 degree rotary fittings which are again protected from kinking by a tight wound spiral.  The rotaries are on the stiff side but can be moved to any position you will require with a bit of persuasion.  The large copper contact plate comes with a coating of TIM pre applied.  This coating is protected by a plastic cap in transit, and will of course be removed by us and replaced with our usual Noctua TIM to ensure continuity of testing

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.
