    Recently announced here. Would seem like they've taken one of the awesome features of Antec's Kuhler range (USB connectivity) and implemented it in the redesigned versions. Also they're apparently using better cold plates, tubing and fans based on their SP range of fans.

    Might have to get me a H100i as I've been looking at them but the fans and the controllability have been putting me off - good job I've got a little bonus coming my way :thumb:

    IMO they definitely look better than the current H series, but I guess it matters less what they look like and how they perform. Have Antec released a new range of sealed coolers yet?

    No point if they're still using CoolIT as the OEM

    Fans look great though

    Looks good, also looks like they have gone with their own custom fan connectors which is never a good sign. Custom fan profiles will only work with those fans id imagine.

    Didn't twig that when I first looked... I just thought "those fan connectors look odd... oh well..." :duh:

    That's a bit of a let-down then since if a fan was faulty you'd have to RMA it and wait for a replacement rather than just swapping out the faulty fan - also if they turn out to be loud / rubbish then you're stuck with them...

    Don't fret, the fans use the standard connector and Corsair provides an adapter:

    Hopefully they've fixed the issue with the rattling H80 pumps!

    You can pre-order the H80 at scan but not the H100. But you can at overclockers for 92 quid and 91 at yoyotech

    Needless to say, we're banging down Corsair's door for these to review. Corsair Link software has come a long way, and us really quite impressive now,

    I was intrigued by the Corsair Link software when I first heard it announced, but to have to buy a separate controller ('Commander') for $70 was a bit ridiculous even if it did come with some temperature sensors thrown in...

    Edit: Still no sign of these being in stock anywhere... :(

    Order a H100 the day before this was in the shops.. Ah well. :) I like the look of the old one anyway. The tubes on this one look like the inside of a car. :/
