The H100i V2 is simply a re-branded H100i GTX. I own both and can not find any discernible difference between them. The CPU core temps that were measured using HWinfo are basically the exact same. There was a difference of about 3 degrees under load but this is due more to the silicon lottery than the radiator. IMO buy whichever is cheapest at the time of purchase because the differences are not worth paying more for.
The fans on the radiator are SP120L PWM fans which are very solids fans however are still a bit loud for my liking. I have replaced them with Noctura Nf-f12 fans and it works amazing. Replacing the fans did not provide a decrease in temperature but will allow the system to run near silent. Here is a link to the fans that I purchased Noctua NF-F12 PWM Cooling Fan
Compared to an air cooled system you can expect to see a decent drop in temps anywhere from between 5-10C depending on the cooler you are using. If you are planning on Overclocking then I highly suggest you purchase a liquid cooler to protect the CPU from thermal throttle and silicon degradation. Honestly once you make the move to liquid cooling you will never go back.
A couple things I want to point out:
Installation is very easy however to install this cooler you will need to install a support bracket on the underside of your motherboard. For new builds this is not an issue at all since this is easily done before the board is installed into the case. For others that are simply looking at transferring over from an air cooled build then you most likely will have to remove the motherboard from the case in order to install the cooler. Not a deal breaker and definitely worth the trouble, but it is something to consider if you are not comfortable removing your motherboard.
The last thing I want to point out is that you need to be very careful when tightening down the radiator to the case. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN it. It is very easy to over-tighten the radiator and it will strip the threads inside the radiator which will not grab the screw anymore. (please don’t ask me how i know this 🙁 ). It is not a huge deal if you do to one or two screws since there are several more that will hold it in place but just be careful and make sure the bolt is snug and leave it be.
In summery this is an amazing cooler for those that are not ready for the DIY liquid cooling builds. The pump itself uses RGB leds that allow for almost any color you would ever want. Corsair coolers are really top notch and I highly recommend them to anyone interested in using a liquid cooled system. If you have any questions feel free to post them in the comment section and I will do my best to answer them for you.
Edit: I have confirmed with corsair that this unit and the h100i GTX are the exact same unit. No changes have been made to this unit besides the change in the name. I also wanted to update and clear up any confusion buyers may be having regarding the color panels. The panels do not ship with the unit and actually are not even available for purchasing at this time according to corsair. Corsair informed me that they plan to make them available in the future, but as of now they are not for sale.
I Called support and set up an advanced RMA which placed a 150$ charge on my credit card until the defective unit is received and despite doing this a day ago they still haven’t shipped the replacement. Corsair used to be a name I can trust, now I have no access to my primary PC and am at their mercy until they ship me a new unit, needless to say I will not be buying through them again.

Back to the H110i, it’s great. The radiator is big–almost TOO big–and it keeps my Ryzen 7 1800X temperatures cool and stable. I would suggest mounting the radiator to the front of your case and using the fans as an intake rather than exhausting out the top. This will drop your temperatures by a few degrees without substantially impacting the temperature inside your case. One very small annoyance I have with the water block is that the RGB LED on the water block has a minor, occasional flicker if you set it to cycle between colors. That’s not a huge deal for me, though. Otherwise I have no complaints. The clip included in the box for AMD parts mounts to AM4 without additional hardware or an extra bracket.
