Corsair Hydro Series H80 Liquid CPU Cooler Review
Luke Hill / 10 years ago
Corsair’s all black styling doesn’t just stop at the product. Even the box has a smooth black finish. A picture of the H80’s low profile pump unit as well as a smaller picture of the complete H80 are located on the box front. The CPU compatibility and cooler model (H80) also make an appearance. Every modern mainstream platform is supported by the H80 as well as the future platform, LGA 2011.
Specifications are positioned on the left side of the box in 6 different languages.
Moving on to the rear reveals some key features stated as well as a chart comparing the H80 against the H100, H60 and stock CPU cooler. The chart shows the H80 offering great performance while cooling a Core i7 920 overclocked to 3.8GHz.
Pictures of the cooler along with information about “Corsair Link Digital” are situated on the top of the box.
Box contents and “The Corsair Advantage” are detailed on the bottom of the box.
The cooler itself is secured in sturdy cardboard specifically shaped for the task of protecting the H80. Plastic bags ensure that scratches aren’t received.
3 documents are enclosed. The installation guide, a Corsair product guide and a leaflet instructing you to RMA a unit through Corsair rather than the retailer.
The instruction manual folds out into an 8 step guide for Intel and AMD installation.
The “Corsair solutions guide 2010” indicates some of the other products that Corsair sell.
Mounting screws, an Intel backplate, fan screws and AMD mounting hardware complete the accessories bag. The Intel mounting hold-down is pre-applied to the pump unit.
