been holding out for an h-series cooler for a while now, was originally considering the h50, but got the frio instead. then it came h70 and h60, almost pulled the trigger on the h60, but heard h80 was coming out. so after weeks and weeks of waiting, bang, bought the h80 yesterday, and it's in store to pick up from today!!! would love to get it today, but i'm away from the city with family, so it'll have to wait till tomorrow.

not sure how the h80 will compare to the likes of nh-d14 or silver arrow, i know those h-series coolers aren't that amazing, but always wanted to give them a try, guess i will find out pretty darn soooooooon!

for those who are interested in the h80, stay tuned, i will test it as soon as i have it installed. shame i don't have anything to compare with other than my frio, but it's something at least rolleyes.gif

oh i'm getting pretty excited already, wish the coming 24hrs will fly-by biggrin.gif

UPDATE 1 - UNBOXING PHOTOS


so finally got the time to go to store and get my h80, literally just got home and took some photos for those who are interested. gotta go for a football session soonish, so not gonna have time to install and test it until later tonight or early tomorrow (have a day off on monday smile.gif) will update more photos once i have the h80 installed wink.gif

so here are some photos i've took just now, enjoy! and if anyone wants any different angled shots or whatever requests, just leave a reply, i'll try my best to answer!

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/23857814/PC/H80%201.jpg
brand spanking new unopened box

H80%202.jpg
back of the box, it states 10'c improvement over h60, which worries me a little coz it's 2 fans vs 1 fan...i don't know how h60 performs with 2 corsair stock fans rolleyes.gif maybe later when i get to test the h80, i will do a 1 fan test so for those who has an h50 or h60 you can compare the actual block/pump+rad better

H80%203.jpg
packaging...standard i guess...

H80%204.jpg
box content

H80%205.jpg
block/pump unit, the button in the centre switches between the 3 performance profile, white led light will indicate which performance level is currently being set. the little man will only lit up when the h80 is paired up with the corsair link unit

H80%206.jpg
the corsair digital link...need to do some reading on that, not sure how it all works yet. 3-pin motherboard fan connector and molex

H80%207.jpg
2 4-pin fan headers to connect the two fans provided. the block/pump unit has a built-in pwm controller i believe

H80%208.jpg
pre-applied paste, i will be using this to do the testing first, then i will probably use mx-3 or mx-4 i haven't decided yet rolleyes.gif

H80%209.jpg
radiator fins, for those who are interested in how dense the fins are, i never owned any other h-series cooler so i can't really compare, i'd assume they're all the same to be honest

H80%2010.jpg
corsair fan, only 3-pin connector, but as i mentioned already, the block/pump unit has a built-in pwm controller so 4-pin fans are not required here

so, that is that, hope it's been an interesting read for you guys thus far. like i said already, if you want more photos or have questions, just leave a reply smile.gif

out for now...more to follow later, stay tuned rolleyes.gif

UPDATE 2 - INSTALLATION PHOTOS


so here it is, i was gonna take photos as i install the h80 step by step, then decided to just show you guys the complete product, it's not a rocket science to install those h-series cooler anyway...

H80%2011.jpg
for comparison purpose, i threw in my frio setup, personally i still like the frio's look, but in my opinion it makes the rig look a 'little' crowded

H80%2012.jpg
so, took off my frio and top exhaust fan, ready to install! one note, due to the fact that my case only has 4 fans, 3x180mm intakes at the bottom, now that the top exhaust is gone, which leaves me no option but use the h80 fans as exhaust. i will see how temp goes, maybe later on i will turn the fans around tongue.gif

H80%2013.jpg
for those who expressed worries about cable management, i'd say there isn't much you have to worry about, the molex and the cpu fan connector can be easily 'hidden', well....semi-hidden, i think it doesn't look that bad. then there are those 2 fan cables that go into the block/pump unit, again, you can make them look ok-ish, i think they way i did it is not that bad, you guys may have better ideas too wink.gif

H80%2014.jpg
and here is the final look, pretty happy with the way it looks this far, makes the rig looks quite a bit more spacious...smile.gif

alrighty then, photo time is OVER, time to get some numbers up, next update will be i7 950 stock clock idle and ibt max + i7 950 @ 3.82 idle and ibt max...

sorry for those who have been itching to see some 4ghz+ overclocks, i'm having problem getting my 950 stable at 4, but strangely it did before, oh well, i guess it will have to be 3.82 for now, i will tweak some settings a bit more later on and see if i can get it to 4+ again.

also, since corsair tested the unit at 3.8 with a 920, would be interesting to see how my setup compare to that.

enough said, stay tuned, give me a bit more time, results will be up soon wink.gif

UPDATE 3 - NUMBERS


ok, before i go any further, just to say this again that i used both stock fans as exhaust, and pre-applied paste was used.

first up, stock i7 950 performance with some voltage tweak. exact voltage settings can be found in any of the h80 stock screenshots on asus turbo v.

idle first...

Stock%20Idle%20Frio.jpg
this is my frio with stock fans in push/pull at approx 1800rpm

Stock%20Idle%20H80%20Low.jpg
h80 at low setting

Stock%20Idle%20H80%20Medium.jpg
h80 at medium setting

Stock%20Idle%20H80%20High.jpg
h80 at high setting

now, intel burn test max, ht on, 8 threads, 5 runs, custom ram set at 4800

Stock%20IBT%20Frio.jpg
frio, same setting as idle

Stock%20IBT%20H80%20Low.jpg
h80 at low setting

Stock%20IBT%20H80%20Medium.jpg
h80 at medium setting

Stock%20IBT%20H80%20High.jpg
h80 at high setting

now move on to 3.82ghz, i've only done the high performance settings on the h80, as i have a dentist appointment, so other tests will have to wait...

3.82GHz%20Idle%20Frio.jpg
frio, same fan settings, idle temp

3.82GHz%20Idle%20H80%20High.jpg
h80, high setting, idle temp

3.82GHz%20IBT%20Frio.jpg
frio ibt, same setting as before

3.82GHz%20IBT%20H80%20High.jpg
h80, high setting, ibt temp

sorry guys, i don't have time to leave my thoughts here right now, really need to run for my dentist appointment, but i'm sure you all understand numbers...

long words put short...disappointed so far...frown.gif

I sure would like to here some specs on this after you get it installed. Stock settings temps and of coarse overclocked temps. I have the H50 and it dose ok for what i do but, was looking for a beefier all-in-one solution. I'll check back and see what you come up with.

i think the h50 with a pair of good fans in push/pull can still do the trick, but yeah, i sure hope the h80 won't be a huge disappointment.

i would get the h100 if my case has the space, but for what i do i think 80 should be ok, i least i hope...same for me, the aircoolers are just way to big nowadays, and i wanna try something a bit more compact rolleyes.gif

will report in with temps as soon as i have time to do it, this weekend is event packed coz it's my bday tongue.gif, so might not be able to upload test results until monday frown.gif BUT before tuesday for sure smile.gif

lol, i was sooooo close to pull the trigger on the h60 last night actually, but did a quick search on h80 just before i did it, and surprise surprise, it was in stock!

to me the h80 looks pretty much the same as h60, i like the squarish look on the block/pump unit. i know the h80 is equipped with a built-in fan controller and all that corsair link stuff, but i don't know if it actually use the same pump as the h60 or not? i'm not entirely sure...
post #7 of 1192
Not sure, but the only thing that annoys me about the H60 is that the pump is a little whiny when on full. I leave the pump on full for good idle temps and the fan ramps up to feel speed at anything over 45c.

hmmmm, i guess i'll find out how loud is the h80's pump....

what fans are you using with your h60 if you don't mind me asking?
