‘All in one’ watercoolers have taken the enthusiast sector by storm in the last year. Not only have units from Corsair, Antec and Coolit proved to perform very well, but they are easy to fit and leave a lot of free space around the CPU socket. Today we are looking at the latest and greatest from Corsair – the H100.
The H100 is a ‘no maintenance’ design which is claimed to deliver ultimate cooling performance with an idiot proof installation method. It uses a 240 x 120mm radiator to increase the surface area for improved performance.
Corsair are utilizing a new micro channel cold plate design with a split flow manifold. The new low profile pump is supplied with a push button control feature to offer three different performance settings.
The H100 also uses high quality Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) tubing which will ensure longevity thanks to reduced evaporation rates. The H100 supports AM2 and AM3 processors without a custom backplate installation. All Intel platforms are supported including LGA775, LGA 1155, LGA 1156 and LGA 1366 and even the upcoming LGA 2011 socket.
Corsair offer a five year warranty with the H100 cooler.
