This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Seems like a decent price for this, went hot at £75 delivered the other day.

Corsair have been praised for the warranty on these.

Arctic freezer 2 was suggested to be thermally better, however its almost £20 more than the h100x and is a 280 mm radiator so may not fit all cases. Either way this is a good option for those wanting a dual radiator cpu cooler.

Still undecided myself, have always used air coolers. Recently bought a 3600x so in the market for something as my thermalright HR-02 will be going into a second build

I've never used water cooling on a build. How easy are there to install?


Easy as a normal cooler

Install the radiator last if you top mounting as you won't be able to reach the PSU power and fan headers etc. Apart from that, real easy!
These things are great. I was skeptical about the "dont use any paste, just use the included pad", but I am still getting temps sub 30 after 18 months! (after a bit of burn-in)

Very difficult. Your airflow needs reversed, you need cool air from outside over the radiator which means hot air inside and brings in dust if not placed over a dust filter which slows flow. Need to reconfigure bios to link cpu temp with pump speed instead of fan speed - slower flow takes away more heat when temps arn't extreme. Lots of experimentation to get it a quiet PC. Sticking to fans and traditional airflow and bios settings is probably smarter.

Thanks for the top tips. I've recently done two builds with the same ryzen 5 3600. One runs cool one runs hot. Exactly the same stock cooler. Re-applied the thermal paste and its the same. Was wondering if water cooling would be a solution, but might be that I have a different random issue.
I have an H100i inside a Corsair 250d with the fans blowing air over the rad and outside the case (push config) cooling a 3700x and it idles at 35C, gaming it doesn't really go over 60C and under heavy load like encoding it doesn't break 70C. There are a lot of schools of thought around airflow but a lot of them are heresay. Installation wise it's a breeze. YMMV.

Different motherboards on each build? Check for bios updates for the motherboard, if no luck read up about undervolting, could be solved without changing cpu cooler with any luck.

They are different motherboards. I will try your suggestions. Thank you very much.
I've just ordered the Corsair iCUE H100i PRO XT RGB for £115 - apart from the iCUE stuff, which I'll never use because I like sealed cases, is there much difference to this setup?

I've just had a quick Google for you and from the Corsair forums:

forum.corsair.com/for…774

The stand out line for me was "Mechanically, it's the same pump and same fans". The difference appears to be iCUE and RGB.

ML fans on the H100i PRO XT... considering sending back and ordering this now
Highly recommend, this cooler keeps my ryzen 5 3600 at 50 to 52c under load. Spikes up to 55c occasionally.. At first I thought this was higher than it should be until I saw the stock cooler reaching 70+

Did this come with am4 bracket? Amazon says fits am4 but reviews says a buyer had to purchase am4 bracket separately.

Did you purchase from amazon?
I purchased this for a 3600x build. Works a treat.
Ordered, thanks OP! Saved me £45 on the RGB XT kit I ordered. That'll be going back now

Ordered this last week from the £75 deal and mine came with the bracket
In two minds, arctic freezer 34 esport duo or one of these on a ryzen 3600
Unless you're specifically after Corsair for aesthetics or you've got a small case, why wouldn't you get the Liquid Freezer II? Better cooling, quieter, cheaper and really easy to install if your case supports the radiator size. You can even throw in a tube of thermal paste and it'll be cheaper.

Little late, but as said previously, different boards (and even CPUs) will pull different voltages. The hotter one is likely pulling more. Either setting VCore to a manual setting or tinkering with the LLC should solve your issue.
