Corsair H110i GT Review

Up Close:  The Radiator

The radiator measures 140mm x 322mm x 27mm, making it slightly longer but also a fraction thinner than its predecessor.  Corsair have also opted for a more angular look, which is imparted by squared off edges to the end tanks.  Each side of the cowling also sports a brushed Aluminium effect strip, widening towards the end to accommodate the Corsair name and logo.

The radiator itself is made from Aluminium, with the cold plate being Copper.  Corsair don't give figures for the fin density but our measurements put it at 20fpi.  On the whole, the fins were straight but we did notice one or two that had received a bit of a knock either in transit or more likely at the factory.  We should add that it's very rare to unbox a radiator from any manufacturer and have it arrive with no bent fins whatsoever, so this is nothing unusual.

The ports on the end tanks are positioned with a bias inboard to the radiator edges, which will to some degree improve fitting options as they would otherwise undoubtedly be hard up against the case edge were they any further out.  The tubing is quite flexible, though not so much as the Fractal tubing we looked at recently, but then the Corsair tubing does come covered in a very nice gloss black braid.  this isn't a technique we've seen before, but we do quite like it.  The terminations into the radiator are further protected by dense spirals  which should help to resist any tendency to kink at the port.  All in all, the radiator is very well made and nicely presented, with the brushed Aluminium effect strip on each side completing the aesthetic.

Cheers Tom been waiting for this review.

The silver trims on the rad and block can be removed and replaced with a red or blue one.

Yes, i'm not sure I agree with everything but certainly i'm not going to hate on this at all. I did think the H100i pump block looked better and cleaner however I can appreciate this one is matt black which if it survives Corsair's packaging should stay looking fresh for a lot longer.

One thing, are the grey clips not replaceable? Why are you banging on about glue and hair dryers guv, I thought the idea was they just clipped off, is that GTX's only or something? Earlier in the day I was thinking to myself 'but it's gonna be upside down for some people' then I realized if they make it the wrong way up on the back when you swap them over it will be the right way around for everyone. Then watching the review it looked like they did exactly as I thought... but then you said glue. If they are infact permanent then I despise how poorly they fit around the octagonal part.

I can appreciate you must do A LOT of testing for these cooler reviews with multiple overclocks and multiple fan speeds all for an extended period of time. That must be time consuming. But I feel that it's a bit wasted when they aren't directly comparable from product to product.

By which i'm trying to say the Kelvin obviously has slow fans. If it had 2700RPM fans it would have humiliated everything ever but then you would have given it a shoddy award for being uber loud. Similarly the Nepton which is comparable size and product I have no idea how it 'actually' compares from the graph. ie. performance per db. I know it's not your style to analy measure noise levels and go nuts and I appreciate that because it's something the end user will never do either. But it would be great to have a result for every cooler at one fan speed and heat load. Not 12v or 7v! Just say 1500RPM. If it would be a total PITA to control each fan like that (it wouldn't you just need an Aquaero in the test rig) then maybe use the same fan every time. Just a directly comparable result at which the reader can sit back and think right at this noise level which is acceptable for me X cooler will perform the best.
