Corsair H110i GT Review

Up Close:  Assembled with fans

The fans are attached with the supplied screws.  Corsair give a single set of 8 long and 8 short screws making it possible to attach the fans to one side and then the radiator to the case on the other side.  Sadly there are no additional screws included to enable a push pull set up with an extra set of fans as is the case with other manufacturers, but in the literature provided Corsair do let you know how you can order some.

The spiral twists certainly do a good job of resisting kinking and protecting the tubing port junction, while at the same time the tubing itself is reasonable flexible.  Viewed from the side we can also see that that at just 27mm thick, when the radiator is combined with the 25mm thick fans the H110i GT assembly represents a pretty low profile solution at a total of just 53mm.

Looking at the image below left you might be thinking that in not using a square profile fan cowling Corsair are not maximising the cooling potential of their fans as they are not covering the whole of the radiator.  In reality of course it makes little difference and to some degree it could be argued that the areas of radiator not immediately under the fan blades are better left open to air as opposed to being covered with a plastic cowling.  Finally then, a close up of the gorgeous gloss braid that Corsair have covered the tubing in.  If you haven't guessed by now, we quite like it.

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.
