Corsair Hydro Series H100 CPU Water Cooling Kit ReviewFri, Oct 07, 2011 - 12:00 AM
Temperature Testing Results
With the system running at stock settings the Corsair H100 on low is what got my attention. It is quiet and comes in at a very nice 54.75*C, just ever so slightly behind the Corsair H80 on medium, ahead of all the air coolers in the charts and it stomped the stock Intel HSF by 22.5 degrees. Bumping the Corsair H100 to medium the temps dropped to 51.5*C and a very cool 50*C on high.
Bumping the system with a mild overclock to 3.5GHz the Corsair H100 is still topping the chart. On low the H100 is still performing nicely at 58.25*C, beating the Corsair H80 on low by 5 degrees, and still in front of all the air coolers. On medium and high the H100 beats its sibling H80 by at least a degree.
Cranking the system up to 4.0GHz the Corsair H100 is still being very impressive on low coming in at 69.75*C, beating the Corsair H80 on low by 5.5 degrees. On medium the H100 comes in at 68.75*C, and on high 65.25*C.
