The Hydro H80i High Performance differs from Corsair’s junior liquid cooling systems in one more way as it supports Corsair’s Link Monitoring and Control technology implemented via USB. Corsair Link 2.2.0, a highly functional utility with broad monitoring and control capabilities, is used together with it. Its main window shows CPU, coolant, GPU and HDD temperatures as well as the speed of the pump and fans. You can also regulate the color of the pump’s LED indicator (if you’ve got a computer case without a side window, for example).
You can customize the representation of this information using groups:
The monitoring data can be viewed as graphs:
You can create multiple profiles with system settings and set up email notifications.
The speed of the pump cannot be regulated but you can monitor it and regulate the fans.
Corsair Link even helps you update the firmware of your liquid cooling system:
And finally, you can set up logs for any or all of the monitored parameters.
So, this utility has excellent functionality and makes a perfect addition to the cooler itself. Now let’s move on to the next product.
