I just got a Thermaltake FRIO after looking at this thread.

57.99 vs 121.99+ 7.87 shipping from NewEgg. It's a no brainer at more than half the price for the same performance.
LOL, i would make a very bad sales person for corsair

but at least you found the thread useful in some way

bottom line is, i cannot control or monitor my room temperature unfortunately, so people here will have to take my results with +/- 1or2'c guess...
Either way, these temps could be better. I'm not seeing what makes this worth blowing $120 for. Hopefully more people will post results so we can see.

We use an 800D case with the side panel closed. Open-air bench testing isn't very accurate as you're using all ambient air and all your exhaust just lifts up into the room. A case is more reliable and fair to do performance testing.

As for the stock thermal paste, it's very, very high quality stuff that's actually not easily accessed on the market. We switched from Shin-Etsu because we found a superior TIM, but I'm not at liberty to discuss exactly what it is yet.


MSRP of the H80 is going to be the same as the H70 - $109 - with dips down to $99 and such pretty frequently. Because it's only been out a few days, a lot of people are marking it up right now. (supply and demand - hoorah!)

Price should settle down.

H100 is going to be $10 more than H80.

intersting, so now i have a mysterious high quality tim sitting inbetween my cpu and h80 cold plate. i think you just made me not want to ever take off my h80 again, well...until we figure out what tim corsair is using here

I'm debating on getting the H80 because it's not bulky, heavy and tall like my CPU cooler.
(It's not breaking/bending or stressing my mobo as some seem to think these big coolers do.)

I like the looks of Corsair Hydro's personally, I had an H50 in my old AMD 940BE build.

It's about double the price of the Silver Arrow though, but expected I guess being a closed loop and all. Maybe I'll wait for price drops as George said.

the size of aircoolers are exactly the reason i wanted a hydro cooler, i could have waited longer and get it cheaper, but from h50, to 70, then 60, i've been indecisive, and i just couldn't wait any longer so pulled the trigger the day h80 came out

for me personally, i think for about 85euros, the h80 is worth it, my frio when i got it was about 45euros. now for a modest improvement in temps some people may find it hard to justify that extra 40euros, but being closed loop and with the corsair warranty and their replacement scheme if it leaked and damaged your other components, i really think it's not too bad, that's just my personal opinion...

Is it the EVGA Frostbite??

sorry I had too!! lol


Well I wanna see more reviews on the H80. It seemed like it was going to do so well....maybe it needs the corsair controller?? For my next build its between the H80 or the Antech Kuhler 920
