Initially, the H105 might leave you scratching your head. It's listed on Corsair’s site with the same $119.99 MSRP as the H100i, and both are 240mm designs featuring the same high performance fans. The similarities end there, however, as the design of the H105 is more akin to Corsair's new 120mm H75 (which we recently reviewed) than to the existing 240mm H100/H100i. With the H75 already a solid price/performance pick in Corsair’s lineup - and the various other options still available - it's reasonable to wonder exactly where H105 fits in.
Quote: "The Corsair H105 is a solid performer with tremendous upside. It was able to compete with every other cooling solution at lower fan speeds and noise, but during the most grueling tests it really showed some exceptional cooling performance. The thicker radiator design Corsair has implemented here really pays off, and the H105 is capable of keeping some very high processor overclocks nice and cool."
