You've likely seen Sebastian's review of the Corsair H100i in which he failed to provide the exact barometric pressure or even altitude above sea level, merely showing the delta between the base temperature and sound pressure of the room and that of the cooler. The Tech Report on the other hand offer you insight into the quality of the sound the fan produces as well as the pump. They also compare the performance to a different cooler, the Aerocool P7-L24 so check out their review.
If that doesn't satisfy your aesthetic desires there are more reviews below the fold.
"Corsair refreshed its closed-loop liquid coolers earlier this year with the Hydro Pro series. Those 280-mm and 360-mm liquid coolers boasted bold RGB LED lighting and a fresh design, and they turned in good performance, too. We go hands-on with the 240-mm H100i Pro to see whether Corsair can close out the hat trick."

Introduction and First Impressions
Corsair’s Hydro Series H100 all-in-one liquid cooler has been a mainstay on the market for years now, with iterative updates to add features such as software integration. With this new H100i PRO, now joining the ranks of the existing H115i PRO and H150i PRO, the venerable cooler has again been revised, and this time RGB lighting is featured - though a subtle integration.
“The CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i PRO is an all-in-one RGB liquid CPU cooler with a 240mm radiator built for low-noise cooling performance and bold styling with an RGB LED pump head. Two included 120mm ML Series magnetic levitation PWM fans provide great airflow and static pressure, with a wide PWM speed control range between 400 RPM and 2,400 RPM.
Powerful CORSAIR iCUE software lets you customize RGB lighting, monitor temperatures and precisely adjust fan speeds, or stop fans entirely with the H100i’s Zero RPM fan mode. Easy to install and compatible with most major CPU sockets, the H100i makes it easy to cool your system in silence and style.”
The RGB lighting effect can be adjusted to any color using the iCUE software

Are you still hunting for that perfect gift for the hardware and technology fan in your life? Or maybe you are looking for recommendations to give to your friends and family about what to buy for YOU? Or maybe you just want something new and cool to play with over the break? Welcome to PC Perspective's 10 Days of Christmas where we will suggest a new item each day for you to consider. Enjoy!
When the Corsair H100i was released two years ago it was an advancement over the original H100 in both cooling and features. The 240mm all-in-one (AIO) liquid cooler features a thicker radiator than the original H100, along with high performance SP120L fans, Corsair Link technology, and many other changes.
Originally selling for $119.99, the H100i is now selling for as little as $89.99 on Amazon which puts it closer to the middle of the AIO market in price for a very high performance part. And the H100i boasts higher convenience than other AIO liquid coolers, with software control provided by Corsair Link and a magnetic mounting system to help keep things in place during the waterblock installation.
You can check out our Corsair AIO liquid cooler roundup here to see how the H100i stacks up, and if you are looking for a nice upgrade for someone with the space for a 240mm radiator this would make a great gift idea!
If you are having trouble picking out a gift for a loved one, consider buying an Amazon.com gift card! Amazon has basically every product on the planet for your gift recipient to order and purchasing gift cards through these links directly sponsors and supports PC Perspective! And hey, if you were to buy gift cards for yourself to do your own Amazon-based Christmas shopping...that wouldn't exactly be a bad thing for us either! ;)

The updated Hydro Series coolers, the H80i and H100i both feature all new tubing that might not be much more flexible than the previous models but offers improved flow rates. As well these coolers are now able to be controlled via Corsair's Link technology, allowing you to either set the LED colour displayed or to use it as a real time temperature indicator. As you would suspect the H100i is the larger of the two units, the H80i being 120 x 38 x 152mm and the H100i measuring 275 x 120mm x 27mm with both supporting up to four fans via the Link software. [H]ard|OCP saw an improvement from the previous models which you can read about in their full review.
"Corsair updates its aging H80 and H100 performance liquid CPU coolers, with the new H80i and H100i models. Changes include a new cold plate design, smooth outer diameter no-kink tubing designed to further limit evaporation, and newer designed fans claiming better static pressures, and quieter operation."

The Corsair Hydro Series™ CPU water coolers come in a variety of sizes and configurations to fit the needs of all classes of computer enthusiasts. We decided to look at their latest revisions of these coolers, embodied in the H60, H80i, and H100i cooling units. We put these units up against the Swiftech Apogee HD custom cooling system on our test bench to see just how well these coolers performed. Starting at a base price of $79.99 for the Corsair H60 cooler, you really can't go wrong with the any of these standalone units.
