H80 or H100 Reviews?
Are we going to be seeing H80 or H100 reviews from Akg? I know there are already reviews on other websites out there for these two coolers. However, I find that in most cases the reviews don't over the same level of detail or completeness as the reviews Akg puts out.

I am leaning more and more towards some sort of water cooling for my rig and wouldn't mind seeing a review of these to aid in the decision.

I forgot these things were coming out. I too would love to see some results as the H100 I've heard is suppose to be quite the beast, if that's true we'll have to see hopefully.

I'll be picking up my H100 tonight likely, but won't be installing it until the weekend I think.
I've read a great review on [H] for the H100, so it sounds like it'll be a beast.

Got one to replace a D14. It offers decent performance and can almost keep my 2600K from burning itself out when test clocked @5.1Ghz/1.525V. For comparison I couldn't run at 5.0Ghz/1.495V with the D14 (with 3x140mm) as it would run @high 80s and low 90s with P95 Blend. The D14 with 2xSanAce fans was able to get the job done but as expected it's noisy as hell. The only con about the H100 is the noise. It's very loud at performance mode, decent at medium but almost completely drowned out at low. With low performance mode it keeps my 2600K at 4.9Ghz/1.475 at acceptable levels, low 70s high 60s with p95 blend. With that performance though, I could have just kept my D14 and saved some cash.

We should receive ours soon.

I've been looking myself for decent reviews before purchasing and other than one on a Romanian site, I have yet to find one. I'm sure AkG will do his usual top to bottom review. :thumb:

it isnt lab501.ro is it? looked around tehre and besides a kickarse apu review(vs core i3 2105/2100) theres nothing for the h80/100

The H100 seems very good. But is it cost effective? According to Cooler Master's claims for the Hyper 612, they say it can out-perform the all-in-one liquid coolers (and we all know CM prices their products well).
