Dual SP120L PWM fans
With Corsair Link monitoring and control for extreme liquid CPU cooling performance
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.
Built-in Corsair Link for monitoring, customization, and control
Attach the included Corsair Link cable to a USB header on your motherboard and download the free Corsair Link software to unlock even more power. You can customize cooling performance, monitor coolant and CPU temperatures, and change the color of the RGB LED lighting from the default white to match your system, or to change color based on temperature readings and other inputs.
Advanced SP120L PWM fans
Our custom-designed SP120L fans are different than standard case fans – they’re custom-designed to deliver high static pressure for mounting directly against radiators, and the fan blades are specially shaped for maximum air delivery with minimum noise. Since they’re PWM controlled, you can customize the fan speed to choose the optimal point on the performance/noise curve.
High-performance CPU cooling made simple
Gone are the days when watercooling required lots of work. The H100i v2 is a closed loop design that comes pre-filled, and it comes with a modular, tool-free mounting bracket for faster installation.

The H100i V2 is simply a re-branded H100i GTX. I own both and can not find any discernible difference between them. The CPU core temps that were measured using HWinfo are basically the exact same. There was a difference of about 3 degrees under load but this is due more to the silicon lottery than the radiator. IMO buy whichever is cheapest at the time of purchase because the differences are not worth paying more for.
The fans on the radiator are SP120L PWM fans which are very solids fans however are still a bit loud for my liking. I have replaced them with Noctura Nf-f12 fans and it works amazing. Replacing the fans did not provide a decrease in temperature but will allow the system to run near silent. Here is a link to the fans that I purchased Noctua NF-F12 PWM Cooling Fan
Compared to an air cooled system you can expect to see a decent drop in temps anywhere from between 5-10C depending on the cooler you are using. If you are planning on Overclocking then I highly suggest you purchase a liquid cooler to protect the CPU from thermal throttle and silicon degradation. Honestly once you make the move to liquid cooling you will never go back.
A couple things I want to point out:
Installation is very easy however to install this cooler you will need to install a support bracket on the underside of your motherboard. For new builds this is not an issue at all since this is easily done before the board is installed into the case. For others that are simply looking at transferring over from an air cooled build then you most likely will have to remove the motherboard from the case in order to install the cooler. Not a deal breaker and definitely worth the trouble, but it is something to consider if you are not comfortable removing your motherboard.
The last thing I want to point out is that you need to be very careful when tightening down the radiator to the case. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN it. It is very easy to over-tighten the radiator and it will strip the threads inside the radiator which will not grab the screw anymore. (please don't ask me how i know this :( ). It is not a huge deal if you do to one or two screws since there are several more that will hold it in place but just be careful and make sure the bolt is snug and leave it be.
In summery this is an amazing cooler for those that are not ready for the DIY liquid cooling builds. The pump itself uses RGB leds that allow for almost any color you would ever want. Corsair coolers are really top notch and I highly recommend them to anyone interested in using a liquid cooled system. If you have any questions feel free to post them in the comment section and I will do my best to answer them for you.
Edit: I have confirmed with corsair that this unit and the h100i GTX are the exact same unit. No changes have been made to this unit besides the change in the name. I also wanted to update and clear up any confusion buyers may be having regarding the color panels. The panels do not ship with the unit and actually are not even available for purchasing at this time according to corsair. Corsair informed me that they plan to make them available in the future, but as of now they are not for sale.
This product was very easy to install in a corsair case. It keeps everything cool. Looks nice.
Negative 2 stars:
The fans??? The stock fans almost immediately (within a week) started rattling whenever the rpms were increased. I tried remounting the fans, remounting the cooler (in a corsair case with rubber grommets stock). Nope taking the cooler out of the case completely it was the fans themselves internally and both of them? Final Solution have corsair send me the same thing?? No. I had to replace the fans with noctua 2000 rpm fans. What did I notice the cooling/noise ratio was better, no rattling, and the noise pitch/signature was improved (less annoying obtrusive though stock wasn't bad). Honestly without the rattling I could totally live with stock fans. But now my purchase price is +50% or hope corsair can eventually send me a good fan.
Honestly I did not see may complaints about this issue from other reviewers, so it may be semi-isolated. At this point though I am happy with the noctua fans which have run the unit well without a second thought.
-Device Manager >Universal Serial Bus Controller >USB Root Hub >Properties >Power Management
Then I unselected the "Allow this computer to turn off this device to save power"
I did this to every USB Root hub in Device manager. I also did this to the Generic USB Hub.
Beforehand I tried the registry edit, resetting the BIOS, Changing the USB 2.0 ports on the motherboard. Updating the chipset and USB drivers, and trying older versions of the Corsair link software. Nothing worked. There is little useful information on the web and I found this Power feature while reading another forum.
When I rebuilt my system using the x99 parts the only compatible cooler I had was either an old H80 or H100. So I went with the H100. Prime95 small FFT got me 43c with the H100 and now I'm getting 41c. Coolers like this don't really shine until you overclock them so I'll post those results when I get to it.
I'm using this with a Gigabyte X99 Phoenix board and a 6800k, Win 10 Pro
