After the success of their popular H70 and H50 water cooling systems, Corsair has announced the H80 liquid cooling system for CPUs. Their new flagship cooler will be available officially starting today with a retail price of Rs.9,000, along with a 5-year warranty. The H80 supports all major sockets like Intel’s LGA 1366, 1155, 1156, 775 and AMD’s AM2, AM2+ and AM3 sockets.
Some serious cooling
The latest entrant in their Hydro series, the H80 features a double-thick radiator with two 120mm cooling fans. The pump is a low-profile one, so it can be easily fitted inside your cabinet. The cooling block sports a fan speed control button, which lets you adjust the performance depending on the clock speed of your CPU. There are three white LED lights on the cooler, which tell you which mode you’re in. The H80 has a sealed, closed loop system just like its predecessors, so it’s easy to install out-of-the-box. The tubing is constructed out of low-evaporation FEP to give it a longer lifespan
The bundled 120mm fans run at 1300rpm and can go all the way up to 2500rpm. At the highest setting, the fans can move up to 92CFM of air with a noise level of just 39 decibels. Also bundled in the package are the different mounting brackets and thermal compound, which is pre-applied to the base of the heatsink.
