Corsair H110i GT Review

Corsair H110i GT Review

Today Corsair are launching three products to refresh their range of factory sealed, easy to install liquid coolers. The new models are the double thickness H80i GT 120mm model, the H100i GTX 240mm model and the subject of our article today. This is our Corsair H110i GT Review.

Corsair H110i GT Review – Packaging and Bundle

Corsair have their packaging style very much nailed down. It doesnt matter if we are getting a PSU or a cooler, the styling is the same and in this case gives us a nice clear image of the product along with details of key features. Inside the cooler is protected by cardboard and each component, or bundle of items is wrapped in plastic. In terms of bundled items we get some product documentation, a usb cable which allows us to control the cooler using Corsairs software and then we have our installation items. These allow us to install the H110i GT on all recent AMD and Intel boards (including Socket 1150, 2011, AM2, AM3 and FM2).


Also included in our box are two 140mm fans. These are Corsairs SP140L models which have a speed of 2100rpm, static pressure of 3.99mmH2O and airflow of 113CFM. Corsair rate the noise level at 43dB(A) and the fans connect to our system using 4pin connectors.

Corsair H110i GT Review – The Cooler


The H110i GT uses a radiator which measures 322x140x27mm and of course it is an aluminium part. Corsair add a nice silver trim to the edge and then extending from the end are two tubes. Corsair stand out from the crowd on this front as they add braided material to the outside of the tubes.

Down at the other end of the braided tubes we find the CPU block and extending from it is a 3 pin header for our motherboard and a SATA power connector. On top of the CPU block we get another silver panel which matches the radiator and integrated into the pump is a set of RGB lighting. Flipping the block over we find that it has a full copper base and that Corsair pre-apply their thermal paste at the factory.

Corsair H110i GT Review – Installation

Installation of the fans on the radiator is a very simple process. Just choose the orientation which suits your system and screw them in place. We then install the radiator in our case (likely at the top), again just a case of screwing it in place with the bundled screws.

There are three ways our installation can go next. Differing from the norm on the AMD front we use the standard motherboard bracket to attach our cooler rather than a Corsair backplate. On Intel 115x we do need the bundled Corsair backplate and that gets us to the same situation shown above on socket 2011. Basically we will have a screw at each corner of the CPU. We then grab the cpu block and slide on the bracket Corsair provide. The final step, other than attaching our cables, is to screw this bracket down onto the CPU. This can be done by hand, or by screwdriver.


The final part of our installation is to install Corsair Link. This is a control panel which interacts with key components in our system such as the motherboard, as well as Corsair items like their PSUs and of course our cooler. it displays various voltage readings on items like PSUs, or fan speeds on our cooler and allows us to configure and monitor the system as we wish, including changing the settings for our CPU block LED.

Corsair H110i GT Review – Performance

Test Platform: X99, i7-5960X at stock and at 1.425v/4.4GHz.

Corsair H110i GT Review – Conclusion


Starting with the build quality and design of the H110i there is a lot to like. The radiator is constructed well with a nice solid frame and the finish was flawless throughout. The little flashes of silver work nicely overall on both the CPU block and radiator, especially with the LED lighting. The CPU block itself is one of the better looking in this marketplace and one of the real highlights is the braided tubes. They really stand out from the competition and will look great in any build.

Installation is simple, regardless of the platform and takes no more than 20 minutes. We like that on AMD Corsair have been able to use the standard bracket which makes the end users life easier and the instructions for both that and the Intel alternative are well written and easy to follow. As for the Link software, it is fairly intuitive and allows us to control and monitor our components as required.

As far as performance goes the Corsair H110i GT very much impresses. Yes it can get loud at full RPM but this common for this type of product and in normal use it is very quiet. At stock speeds and voltages it kept our i7-5960X very cool, easily outperforming other liquid coolers. Then when pushing the volts and MHZ, the impressive performance continued. Without doubt the H110i GT is the highest performing liquid cooler we have tested lately.

Summary: With a 5-year warranty, great build quality and industry leading performance the Corsair H110i GT wins our Gold award.

Gold Award

MSRP $99/£79 (H80i GT), $119.99/£96 (H100i GTX), and $129.99/£99 (H110i GT). More info available from Corsair.

  1. It would have been nice to have a sound reading for comparison purposes for all tested coolers.
    While 113CFM is great, 43dB(A) is a bit high in my opinion.
