Corsair H100 Water Cooler Review

 

Even though computer water cooling started off about fifteen years ago, it was not until a couple of years ago when companies first released closed loop, ready to run liquid based coolers for PC components. One of the first companies which released such a liquid based cooler a couple of years ago was Corsair. Today we are going to have a look at the latest and largest liquid based CPU cooler Corsair ever released, the Hydro Series H100. The H100 features a dual fan radiator and Corsair boasts that the cooler can deliver extreme performance; we will find out if that claim is true in this review.
