Installation is as simple as it has always been, the new aesthetic is easy on the eye, and cooling performance on an overclocked chip continues to impress.
Corsair has refreshed its range of all-in-one Hydro Series coolers with the introduction of the 120mm H80i GT, 240mm H100i GTX and 280mm H110 GT.
Covering all the popular form factors and touting a new industrial design as well as Corsair Link integration, the trio continue to rely on a tried-and-trusted formula of pump and radiator in a single, closed loop.
Installation is as simple as it has always been, the new aesthetic is easy on the eye, and cooling performance on an overclocked chip continues to impress. The H100i GTX plays to the Hydro Series' strengths, however the two potential weak spots - pump noise and software refinement - still need to be addressed, and as high-performance PCs become increasingly quiet, liquid coolers are starting to be identified as one of the primary contributors of overall noise.
Bottom line: it'll look great in a windowed chassis, and the Hydro Series H100i GTX should be considered if you prioritise cooling performance above all else, but if you're planning a near-silent build you'll want to look elsewhere.
