Less than a week ago we introduced to you a new liquid-cooling system from Corsair that belongs to the Hydro Series – Corsair H100. At that time, this system made a very good impression even despite the high level of generated noise and demonstrated superb cooling efficiency. As we know, Corsair launched two liquid-cooling system modifications: the flagship H100 and a less expensive H80. For as little as $80 (which is $20 cheaper than they ask for H100), you will get a slightly more compact radiator, which will guarantee better compatibility with computer cases. At the same time, according to Corsair, H80 should be only 2°C behind the H100 leader under maximum load. It seems like a really tiny difference. So, today we are going to take a closer look at Corsair H80 and find out if its cooling efficiency is exactly as good as promised.
Package and Accessories
The cardboard box is designed in the same style as the one from Corsair H100, but you will never take one for another, because of different box size and the model name written on the front of the box in very large letters:
The information on the back and the sides of the package is the same as on H100 box, except for the technical specifications:
The accessories bundle is also fully identical:
The cooling system is made in China (H100 is made in Taiwan). It comes with 5-year warranty and retails for $80, as we have already mentioned above.
