Today we are going to take a look at Corsair’s latest high-end CPU cooler, the H80i. It boasts a similar feature set to the H100i, however it has a more compact radiator which only requires one 120mm fan vent for installation. It replaces the popular Corsair H80 cooler which is very highly regarded among enthusiasts.
With the exception of the smaller radiator, the Corsair H80i is pretty much identical to the H100i. It benefits from the same updated feature set as the H100i which includes broader tubing, a revised pump and a pair of Corsair’s impressive SP120 fans.
The main advantage that the H80i has over the H100i is compatibility. There are many cases on the market which simply don’t have room for the H100i and its large 240 mm radiator. The H80i, on the other hand, only requires a single 120 mm fan vent which can be found on most cases.
