Corsair Hydro Series H80

Intel LGA2011 CPU Cooler Roundup - Corsair H80

The Corsair Hydro Series H80 is a thick single 120mm radiator that supports twin 120mm fans in a push pull configuration. We first looked at it back in July. The H80 also was the first cooler in the Hydro Series made by CoolIT Systems for Corsair. The previous generation H50 and H70 were made by Asetek. With the H80 being a single 120mm radiator cooler, the unit can be mounted in just about any case with a rear 120mm exhaust port.

The H80 is powered from a single molex connector. The pump also acts as a fan speed control. Up to two 120mm fans can be powered from the unit and their speed is controlled from the button in the center of the top. This is the mode selector switch. Around the outside of the button is a meter bar. The bar sections light up to show which of the three modes is being selected.
