We have already tested many compact liquid-cooling systems available in the mainstream market. According to our most modest estimates, there are over 15 reviews of systems like that available on our site alone. However, there hasn’t been a single system yet that could outperform a quality air-cooler of the same or even lesser price that is why systems like that haven’t become very popular. Corsair Company, which already had a number of systems like that including Corsair H70, H60 and H50 decided to continue the line-up and take another shot at the victory by releasing two new products: Corsair H100 and Corsair H80. Today we are going to take a closer look at the top one, and later we’ll discuss the junior model of the two.
