What do you mean fan controller hacked? I am having trouble what this post is about. If you are asking if anyone has experience with H100 then I will tell you mine.

I wish I hadn't bought it and went with a custom loop like a simple XSPC kit. I didn't look on the corsair forums or do any reviews but there are a lot of problems with the H100. Check their forums and you will see countless posts about problems with H100. I am sending mine in for RMA.

I think Khacked = some version of toast/busted. Good news is that Corsair generally has excellent support, and the H100, when working properly, is a great cooler.

Do you have to send it to the states? do you have to pay shipping both ways?


EDIT: Also I have two NH-D14 and they are the best air cooler I have ever used!

I would also like to testify as a happy customer of the Noctua NH-D14, considering the bad airflow I put my case into (under a desk with no ventilation what so ever) my temps never go over 45 degrees. I just don't like their fans though, voided the warranty on 2 of them when I spray painted them black.

So you like the fans, but not the colour choices?

I like that the fans are quiet but TBH I would rather have some higher perf fans that were PWM controllable. I like it when fans speeds on a cpu HSF are proportionally controller based off of cpu temps. In addition, if the cpu is at max usage/max heat then I am not so concerned about fan noise just so long as when the cpu goes back to idle it all quiets down again!
