Great review HH, good set of coolers in there to compare it to. The H110 looks like the best all round AIO cooler at this minute in time.

Will you be reviewing the Shiftech H220 when its released?

Thanks for this review, Hilbert.

If I can get a few days off this month I'll be building a new rig and I am considering the H110 in a 500R for a 3770K.

I usually have the machine 24/7 operational, so I am wondering if the H110 (or water cooling in general) can take that.

Awesome review as always Hilbert.

The NH-D14 is up top.

I can't vouch for 24/7 operation long term as I haven't tested it, but if you ask my personal opinion ... running it 24/7 should be better than turning it on/off all the time. They give 5 years warranty on this gear, so they are convinced themselves it's good quality.

There's only one way to find out ...

I have a question, If a water cooling kit like this fails, lets say a leak, and it then kills other parts like the GPU and mobo.. will corsair replace all what was damaged?

I don't know but this is what is keeping me away from using any watercooling solution. If the NH-D14 is just about the same as the U12P in performance, then it is amazing and you can run only one fan with ULNA adapter and it wont be noisy at all with very good temps.

The liquid inside these coolers will be non conductive and if they failed the pc should just shut itself down.

I can't say I'd bother with something like this. I'd rather go high end air or fork out the extra for custom water.

Considering I had to get 4 H100 coolers before I got a good one, I'm not holding my breath. That said, it is a different and newer model so lets hope they get it right with this series over the first lineup.

Understandable.. that said there is a cosmetic angle to it.. it looks great in cases and depending what fans and arrangement you use you can get great performance with little noise. I'd much rather use this with two gentle typhoons on lowest rpm than a single hsf and listen to it wind up when the heat builds up. If you're going for silent performance these really do come in handy.. between the h100 I'm using (on low) and the twin turbo on my gpu I barely hear my computer if it weren't for the hard drive
