Corsair is one of the most loved brands on the market today, with a huge range of award-winning products, such as their power supplies, peripherals, chassis and more. Of course, today it is their range of ever-popular CPU water coolers that we’re interested in today, as we take a look at their newly refreshed H100i V2 240mm AIO cooler.
On of the most important improvements that the H100i v2 offers is a much better installation procedure, as well as a more streamlined set of power and data connectors. We found that the H100i v2 was incredibly simple to attach, and had the Intel bracket pre-installed, making this essentially a one-step process in terms of the cooling block. Corsair has whittled down the number of connectors from USB 2.0, a 3-pin fan connector plus SATA power to just the first two. The fact that all power is drawn from the fan header (or potentially the fan header plus USB) has ramifacations for fan and pump controls.
The Hydro Series H100i v2 is an extreme performance, all-in-one liquid CPU cooler for cases with 240mm radiator mounts. The 240mm radiator and dual SP120L PWM fans provide the excellent heat dissipation you need for highly overclocked CPUs. Corsair Link is built in, so you can monitor temperatures, adjust cooling performance and customize LED lighting directly from your desktop.
Corsair Hydro Series CPU coolers give you the power of liquid cooling in a compact, easy-to-install package. They offer superior cooling for higher overclocking performance, without the complexity of traditional water cooling kits.
Keep your CPU cool and operating at optimal speed with the Hydro Series H100i v2 Liquid CPU Cooler from Corsair. This CPU cooler consists of two 120mm high performance torque fans complete with liquid coolant to keep your system from getting too hot. You can even keep tabs on the status of your system with the ability to monitor coolant and CPU temperatures, and customize cooling performance with the included Corsair Link cable that plugs directly into the USB header on your motherboard. This updated version of the H100i cooler has its CPU block slightly adjusted to ensure compatibility with some Skylake m-ITX motherboards that may have components really close to the socket.
