H100i Cooler Layout
The Hydro Series™ H100i cooling system consists of an aluminum-based 240mm x 120mm x 27mm radiator capable of supporting four 120mm x 120mm fans, attached to a CPU copper-based cooling assembly via 3/8 inch rubber hoses. The CPU cooler contains embedded magnets to better hold the CPU clip to the body of the cooling assembly. The cooling hoses are attached to the CPU assembly by rotating nozzles, capable of almost a full 360 degrees of rotation.
The H100i comes standard with two 120mm x 120mm x 25mm fans that can be front-mounted for a push configuration, or back-mounted for a pull type configuration as shown in the illustration. In testing, there was no difference seen with fans mounted in push or pull type configuration.
The H100i's CPU contact area is a pure copper-based cold plate, with the pump, Corsair Link™, and LED electronics and ports sitting atop the cold plate itself. Additionally, the block has a coolant drainage port included. The pump, LED, and fans are powered via the attached SATA power cable with pump speed monitoring provided by the 3-pin fan cable.
