Corsair H110i GTX Review

Introduction Who says reviews have to be 100% serious all the time? With the time of the year being what it is, I decided to have a little fun with the video portion of the review. This could be the first and last time you get to see a star ship captain explore the finer details of a PC component. We hope you enjoy the video, but let’s go ahead and jump into the written review of this Corsair unit. Corsair has been known for making silent CLC units. They usually sacrifice pump and fan speed to avoid some noise, but at the same time their units have managed to stay pretty high on the performance pile. Recently, however, the competition has been working harder and Corsair has had to start making units that could offer better performance over raw silence. This is where the GT and GTX line of coolers are coming from. The Corsair H110i GTX is trying to offer the best performance of any CLC on the market. Will it succeed? We’ll try and find out how well this unit measures up, but before we begin, let’s hear a brief word from Corsair themselves. Founded in 1994, Corsair has grown from pioneering the high-performance DRAM market to one of the world’s leading providers of enthusiast-grade PC components and peripherals. Our groundbreaking technology and innovation can be found in our high-performance memory, ultra-efficient power supplies, PC cases, PC and CPU cooling solutions, and solid-state storage devices. Under the Corsair Gaming brand, launched in 2014, w...



 
 
 
 
 

Corsair Vengeance LP Low Voltage 8GB 1600 MHz Memory

Intro [Editor’s Note: We would like to introduce our newest contributing member to the writing team: Mike G. He will be writing reviews for us on several different products from now on and we are glad to have him. For this first review, Mike used a product he already owned. This is also why we couldn’t do our typical unboxing treatment, as he no longer had the original packaging. Regardless, he did a bang-up job and will fit in well here at PureOverclock. Please welcome Mike G. to the PureOverclock Staff! ] Let’s face it: when most system builders get their parts lists together, one of the affecting factors in product selection is product aesthetics. Whether is is the style of heat pipes on a graphics card or the color of the motherboard, looks can make or break a system. Of course after appearances are considered, performance matters as well. Depending on whom you ask, performance may mean a few different things; it could mean raw power, or it could mean efficiency. Rarely can you have both in one finely tuned package that also happens to look good and is reasonably priced. Corsair has maintained such a balance since 2002 with some of the most stylish and best performing memory you can buy, both in terms of pure bandwidth capabilities and responsible power consumption. Most recently, their Vengeance lineup has epitomized this balance, offering not only varying levels of performance, but offering several different styles of heat sinks in many different colo...



 
 
 
 
 

Corsair H100i Review

Introduction Corsair – if you have been into PCs over the past few years, you will probably view them fondly. They make some of the best cases, RAM and power supplies available, not to mention other accessories like SSDs, keyboards, mice and audio products. Corsair got into the AiO cooler market a few years ago with the H50. It was a great cooler for an initial offering, and despite being a thin 120mm radiator, it performed admirably well. In fact, I still have an H50 running on a Q6600 @ 3.7GHz in a spare system right now! Things have come a long way since the original H50, though. The radiators are thicker and longer, the tubing is larger, and the fans are quieter. Fast forward to today and you’ll notice that Corsair’s new H100i has “all that and then some” in an effort to keep your system cool and quiet. They were kind enough to send me one to check out, so without further delay let’s get to it!   About Corsair: “Meeting Performance Computing Demands since 1994. Corsair is a global company bringing innovative, high-performance components to the PC gaming market. Specializing in very high performance memory, ultra-efficient power supplies, and other key system components, our products are the choice of overclockers, enthusiasts, and gamers everywhere. Founded as Corsair Microsystems in 1994, Corsair originally developed Level 2 cache modules for OEMs. After Intel incorporated the L2 cache in the processor with the release...
