Nice review.

Would the temperatures you achieved on the 3570K be similar to the 3770K? I only ask because they seem as good as or lower than a lot of people were reporting from their full watercooled systems.

3770K @ 4.4ghz (Liquid Pro TIM under IHS) | TPC-800 | ASUS P8Z77-V | Kingston 1600mhz 2x8GB | Gigabyte Windforce GTX670 x3 @ 1320mhz | Kingston SSDs 2x120GB RAID 0 | CM-Storm Trooper Case

Thanks for the good review. I saw this on TWO and was considering it. Good to know about the fans.

Do the versions that OCUK have now come with the updated firmware?

i7 4770k @ 4.4GHz | Corsair h100i | Asus Maximus Hero
Coolermaster HAF-X | 8GB Corsair Vengeance
Sapphire 7970 GHz | Crucial M4 512GB | Asus Xonar Essence STX
OCZ ZX 1kW | BT Infinity

Good review, and I definitely want one.

I posted a query off to Corsair tech support asking about planned support for socket 1150. I'll post back here with what they say.

Thanks for the review stulid.

I will just share my experience having had one of these units from the start. I installed my unit in mid november. Temps are great and the unit has no pump noise. I did not use the fans that Corsair supplied. I used Noisblocker NB-eLoop Fan B12-3. Great fans with great airflow and rpm.

After a few days I started to notice that the fans connected to the pump are not powering up. I did try everything possible but still no go. So now the fans are connected directly to the motherboard fan headers.

Just last week one of ram modules decided to go bonkers and locking up my system. Nothing is overclocked just everything on stock. After a few hard resets the pump led is not powering up anymore. No matter how many times I reconnect and disconnect the sata power for the pump.

After reading several threads on the corsair forums and other sites that led's are in fact failing with the current firmware and corsair link not even detecting the unit. I gave up trying to find a solution.

Since I am not from the UK sending this unit for RMA will cost me a fortune so I will just run the pump without any idea of what is going and no led indicator.

I am not saying this unit is bad or Corsair is bad its just my personal experience that probably the first batch of units is still with teething problems that Corsair cannot find a fix for with just a simple firmware upgrade.

That's bad mate. No wonder Corsair WC kits are just bad. I am saving up for this one: http://www.swiftech.com/pr-1-3-13-h220.aspx as this one beat Corsair H100i.

I used to have Corsair H50 and the pump is just too cheap, tubing too warm and even worse that it making a noisey from the pump and died later. Been replaced twices but still the same. I lose my confident in Corsair now after H50 failed, Corsair Force 3 SSD died. But, I only trust Corsair is great memory rams and power supply. Nothing elses.

I believe that socket 1150 uses the same socket spacing as 1155 and 1156.
So yes it should work.

But please post back Corsairs reply.

Well they did get back to me, but not with anything that helpful yet.

They basically said that they've yet to receive official specs from Intel, and hence don't know at the moment.

I guess we'll just have to hope that the spacing remains the same, or that they release a revised mounting kit.

Used one of these on a build for a customer, could not get away with the link software had to use the motherboard to control the fans. The software allowed me to make them go faster but wouldn't allow us to slow them down.

I got one last Saturday and it arrived with 1.0.5 (The latest firmware for download from their website is 1.0.4) I bought mine on impulse without doing loads of research. Its not silent but I am more than happy with it and I have not felt the need to connect the fans to my motherboard or replace them.

Ive got 4xsp120's on my h100.

2 double packs come to 34 which is good considering they are very quiet and push some good air.

I would assume High Performance...
They are a custom SP120 design for the "i" series coolers that lacks the aesthetic colored rings and vibration reducing rubber mounts of the "normal" SP120's, however has higher performance than the high performance "normal" SP120's. The noise issues are actually caused by the controller/software, connecting them to the motherboard eliminates this.

You can actually buy them on their own as replacement parts for the H80i/H100i and they are a great option for people who don't care about looks and just want a decent non-PWM fan to use with a fan controller that has better performance than the "normal" SP120's (but then so are Gentle Typhoons).

I did read somewhere that they were replacing the early fans with newer versions, I've just got to arrange for this and then I will be doing a quick follow up.

They are the same fans just with the option to control.

Any way of getting this to work on socker L775? aka q9550 chip I have? Would a previous generation of bracket fit? Perhaps the h70 or h80 bracket etc? Not been able to find anywhere online that can give me a deffo answer. I know it's not supposed to be for 775 socket any more but I want to try it on my current rig before buying a new cpu bundle in a few months time

Corsair 600t : i7 3930k @ 4.5 : ROG Rampage Extreme IV : 16 gig @ 2400 RAM Core Red : 240gig SSD : Asus GTX980 : Hydro 100i : 750w EVGA 80gold : Asus Xonar DGX 5.1 : Win 7 Ultimate :

Interesting that this gets bumped back up... planning my Haswell build and as the 280mm H110 won't fit my preferred case (650D), the H100i is currently looking as my favourite cooler .

I do have a update to do to this thread.

Corsair have sent me two new 4pin PWM replacement fans, this should cure the noise issue being reported.
