Corsair H100i GTX Review
Up Close: Radiator and Cold Plate
Unlike the H110i GT which has squared off end tanks, the H100i GTX has more conventional looking rounded tanks. It does though share the same sexy braided hosing as the other two coolers in the new Corsair series, a feature we like a great deal. The H100i GTX also has the brushed Aluminium effect side strips to the radiator
The connections to the end tank are stealthed into the fittings but as with the H80i GT the whole appearance is let down by the fittings then thinning right down. The appearance kind of reminds us of someone with really skinny legs wearing trousers that are too short. Not a good look we think you'll agree
At the other end the fittings just go straight into what can only be described as a gigantic cold plate. We do though love the way the braided tubing just plunges in without a hint of a fitting in sight. The cold plate also has connections for power and a split line out for fan control, all of which is mastered by the USB link from the cold plate to the motherboard.
The cold plate itself is circular and comes with a layer of pre applied TIM, which of course will be removed prior to testing. The cold plate comes with the Intel bracket already attached, but this can be easily removed and the AMD bracket fitted
