Corsair Hydro Series H80i Liquid CPU Cooler Review

/ 6 years ago

Next Page »

Recently we published a review of the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Pro liquid CPU cooler and I was inundated on the forums, main site and on the Facebook page with requests to review Corsair’s H80i. Most people believed the Corsair H80i was a direct competitor to the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Pro that needed to be tested for comparative purposes. Shortly after this I spoke with Corsair and they very kindly sorted us out with a H80i for review which leads us on to today’s review.

Corsair’s H80i is one of the most premium solutions of the Corsair Hydro Series and it sits just below the Corsair H100i in terms of its market placement. You can check out our review of some other Corsair Hydro Series products below, note particularly the H90 and H100i as the closest H80i competitors from within Corsair’s own product series.


Without any further ado let us get on with the testing of this Corsair H80i liquid CPU cooler and see how it stacks up against the competition.

    Nice review. I suspected that it would be around that position on the graphs but its nice to get a confirmation. I am glad I went with the H80i. Although I have replaced the fans to GT-AP14 which preform about the same but about 10dba less.

    Thanks for reminding me, I have one of these still fully sealed in it’s box stashed away among my collection of parts. It’s time I did some cleaning out to make space.

    I got H100i for my AMD Test Drive system now. I was wondering where that update was. The help section tells you download the firmware but it wasn’t listed in the downloads. Anyways the unit already has 1.0.5 installed so no problem.

    What is the connector next to the USB?

  5. Tim Auger says:

    I’ve used 2 of these now and in both cases swapped out the whiny fans for a pair of Nanoxia Deep Silence PWM ones, although I did use a pair of Noctuas on one for a while, until I needed them elsewhere. From reviews I’ve seen on retailers’ sites, the supplied Corsair fans seem to be a regular source of complaint.
