Intel LGA2011 CPU Cooler Roundup For Sandy Bridge-E Processors
Corsair Hydro Series H100
Corsair started selling the H100 in July of 2011, and it quickly became the flagship cooler for the Hydro Series. The H100 was also the first kit in the Hydro Series to have dual 120mm or 240mm radiators. We first looked at it in October; you can see our full review here.
The pump/cold plate housing for the H100 is powered from a single molex connector. The pump also acts as a fan speed control. Up to 4 fans can be powered from the unit and their speed is controlled from the button in the center of the top. This is the mode selector switch. Around the outside of the button is a meter bar. The bar sections light up to show which of the three modes is being selected.
When compared to single 120mm radiator units the Corsair H100 and its dual 120mm radiator has limited case options that it can fit in. The radiator is 27mm thick without fans and 77mm thick with four fans installed. Overall length is 275mm.
The Corsair H100 comes with all that is needed to mount the H100 to all the Intel LGA sockets and AMD AM2/3 sockets.
