Corsair Hydro H100i GTX Test Results
The table below shows the relative temperatures of each of the test systems at an ambient temperature of 25.4 C.The Corsair Hydro H100i GTX shows the best performance in all modes. Note that the Corsair H80iGT was tested with the dual push/pull fan installed and the Nepton 240M was compared to the Corsair Balanced mode where the temperatures were most similar.
The image below is an FLIR infrared camera image showing the Corsair H100i GTX cooler operating in Balanced mode. Despite the overclock and 100% load, maximum temperature shown by the temperature bar on the far right of the image shows a maximum temperature of only 40.1°C.
Noise measurements for the three systems are shown below. For similar cooling performance, the Nepton 240M takes the lead in silent operation.
