Corsair Hydro H80i and H100i sealed liquid coolers
Corsair delivers two new all-in-one watercooling solutions; the Hydro H80i with a double-thick 120mm radiator and the Hydro H100i with a 240mm radiator. These units come with a five year limited warranty, they will ship in november for $99.99 and $119.99, respectively.
Corsair, the leading supplier of high-performance liquid CPU coolers for PC enthusiasts, today announced the Hydro Series H100i and H80i liquid CPU coolers, a ground-up re-design of the world's most popular, proven, and award-winning liquid CPU coolers, the H100 and H80. The new H100i and H80i models have been enhanced to deliver improved cooling, quieter operation, simpler installation, and Corsair Link digital control.
Better Cooling, Lower Noise
To improve cooling performance over previous generations, the Hydro Series H100i and H80i coolers use new, more efficient copper cold plates, improved manifolds, optimized fan designs, and larger diameter tubing for increased coolant flow. Corsair's new flagship liquid CPU cooler, the Hydro Series H100i, utilizes a 240 mm radiator for increased surface area and cooling capacity. The Hydro Series H80i uses a double-thick 120 mm radiator and two fans in a 'push-pull' arrangement and is compatible with most enthusiast cases with a 120 mm rear exhaust fan.
Both the H100i and H80i use new SP120L High Performance fans based on Corsair's static pressure optimized Air Series SP120 fans. The SP120L utilizes wide-body, low-pitch fan blades designed for outstanding static pressure at a lower noise level, and a motor that has been specially tuned for high torque, ensuring consistently high performance when used in high resistance environments such as on a liquid cooling radiator. With the new SP120L fans, noise levels have been reduced significantly.
"Class-leading performance, and reliable, quiet CPU cooling have made the Hydro Series the most popular and award-winning liquid CPU coolers in the world," said Thi La, Senior VP & GM of Memory and Enthusiast Component Products at Corsair. "The new H100i and H80i coolers demonstrate Corsair's commitment to providing our customers with the latest and best technology, including unparalleled configuration and monitoring, while improving ease-of-use and compatibility."
Integrated Corsair Link
Out of the box compatibility with Corsair Link provides control over fan speeds and noise levels, pump head LED lighting customization, and the ability to create custom cooling profiles from the Corsair Link Dashboard's easy-to-use software interface. An additional Corsair Link Digital connector on the pump head provides monitoring and control of other devices, such as Corsair Link equipped power supplies, Lighting Nodes, Cooling Nodes, and the Airflow Pro memory activity and temperature monitor kits.
The integrated design of the Hydro Series H100i and H80i combined with new materials and features make installation simpler than ever. The composite rubber tubing is more flexible than the FEP/FPA tubing used in previous coolers, making installation and routing easier but maintaining the previous generation's ultra-low evaporation rates. A new magnetic mounting bracket allows PC builders to quickly and effortlessly configure the coolers for all modern Intel or AMD motherboard sockets.
Superior Compatibility with Cases and CPUs
The Hydro Series H100i is compatible with most cases that feature 240 mm fan mounts designed specifically to support radiators. In most Corsair cases, the H100i can be installed in minutes, and requires no adapters or user modification. The Hydro Series H80i is compatible with most cases that feature a rear 120 mm fan mount. All support motherboards based on the Intel LGA115x/1366/2011 and AMD AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 CPU sockets.
