Looking back into the not too distant past I can remember when the original Corsair H80 AIO cooler come out. I had started out my overclocking adventures a little while before that using an H70 and remember thinking how cool it would be to step up to the bigger more powerful H80. It had a much thicker radiator than my cooler and dual fans as well! Flash forward half a decade and here we are with the newest iteration of that cooler. While many things have changed, some things such as the dual fans and super thick radiator have stayed the same. The H80 was an excellent entry level cooler for those looking for higher performance back then; lets check out the latest version the H80i GT and see if the same is still true today.
We’ve looked at a large portion of AIO coolers from the Fremont, California based hardware manufacturer Corsair. This includes our most recent review the H110i GT which set the bar high as the best performing AIO cooler that we have tested here at ThinkComputers. Of course that isn’t the limit of Corsair’s capabilities as they offer a full line of coolers for all different needs. Today we’ll once again take a look a large AIO cooler, the 240mm rad equipped H100i GTX. Follow along as we find out if this cooler can go punch for punch with it’s highly successful bigger brother.
Corsair has been selling all in one liquid coolers since these coolers first started hitting the market. In fact without them it’s possible this category would never have gotten off the ground. With such a broad line of AIO coolers keeping them busy, it’s been some time now since Corsair has made an addition to their 280mm category. Today we’re going to be taking a close look at the H110i GT. This dual 140mm unit boasts some fresh aesthetic designs as well as some really cool new technology. Follow along as we find out if this GT reboot is really a luxurious high performance cooler worthy of the GT moniker or just another AIO with a fancy looking name.
Corsair has just released their Hydro Series HG10 A1 GPU liquid cooling bracket. This GPU cooling bracket is made to work with AMD Radeon R9 290X and Radeon R9 290 graphics cards. The bracket will allow users to attach a Corsair Hydro Series liquid cooler to their graphics card to cool the GPU and other critical circuitry.
It looks like Corsair has noticed the popularity of NZXT’s Kraken G10 cooling bracket that they have developed their own. The Hydro Series HG10 cooling bracket is a powerful accessory that allows users to replace a stock graphics card cooler with any of Corsair’s Hydro Series liquid CPU coolers.
Corsair has just launched the latest liquid CPU cooler in their Hydro Series the H75. The H75 is made up of a 120 mm radiator with dual Corsair SP120L PWM fans, a copper microfin coldplate cooling block and kink-resistant rubber tubing. Like all of Corsair’s Hydro Series liquid CPU coolers the H75 is completely self-contained and never needs filling or maintenance.
Not long ago we took a serious look at one of Corsair’s most promising closed loop coolers, the H80i. It performed very well for a single 120mm radiator and left us wondering; if this is how well the H80i does, how will the H100i perform when it has an additional 120mm of rad space? Without further speculation, let’s get down to business shall we and see if the H100i can stand with the exceptional, or if you should pass on this one.
In every industry there is always at least one company that seems to always be on top. No matter what product they are releasing they always sell well and everyone seems to love them. Without a doubt one of these companies is Corsair. As an owner of one of the original Corsair AIO’s, the H70, I am very interested to see how far they’ve come over the years. Today we will be taking a look at one of their most recent AIO units, the H80i. At the mid-top end of Corsairs line and with so many AIO cooling units on the market, lets take this cooler for a test drive and find out where it falls when the heat is turned up.
