This is a preliminary review of the Corsair Hydro H80i self contained liquid cooling system. The Hydro H80i is a compact all-in-one liquid cooling solution built around a 120mm aluminum heat exchanger with two 120mm fans mounted on either side, in a push-pull configuration. The waterblock features a USB interface for software monitoring of pump and fan speeds, temperature and so forth. The tubing is a fairly ridged rubber hose and power is supplied not by a fan header, but via a SATA power connector. Corsair's Hydro H80i installs onto Intel socket LGA775/115x/1366/2011 and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 processors. Retail price is around $116 USD / CDN. Please see corsair.com for the full spec sheet.

NOTE: In an effort to keep up with the increasing pace of heatsink releases and provide a timely reference to our readers, Frostytech has decided to release its heatsink test results in a preliminary review format as soon as the data is compiled. Contained within this preliminary article are the complete set of test results charts for Frostytech's 125Watt AMD, 150W & 85W Intel LGA115x/775 and 200W Intel LGA2011 synthetic thermal test platforms, acoustic measurements and a 360° pictorial overview of the thermal solution. This preliminary look at the Corsair Hydro H80i will be updated to the complete review at a later date.
