4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Cooler, shame about the fans!, 11 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series H100i All-In-One 240mm Digital High Performance Rad Liquid Cooler for CPU (Personal Computers)
Turn up the H100i fans higher than the 1000 rpm "quiet" setting and you will start to notice them, at 1500 rpm they are the loudest fans in my case, at 2000 rpm they make a helluva racket, anything over 2000 rpm, in the words of Tony Soprano, forgetaboutit. The obvious answer is to go out and buy a pair of quieter static pressure fans but that's going to add another 20 quid to the price pushing the H100i over the £100 mark and at that point I would start looking at entry level custom kits from the likes of XSPC. I did buy the H100i and it happily runs 24/7 on "quiet" settings keeping an overclocked Core i7 nice and cool, but on "quiet" settings it's not doing anything better than a Noctua D14 or Phanteks PH-TC14PE air cooler can do for 65 quid. The H100i is a great unit but the stock fans are way too loud so overall it gets 4 stars from me. Corsair should have fitted the H100i with their Air Series SP120 Quiet Edition fans as standard, but why would they do that when they can sell them at 20 quid a pop
