[OCCLUB] COrsair H80 review.

Cooling down that multi-core CPU can be accomplished with the stock heat sink delivered by the CPU manufacturer, be it Intel or AMD. However, it just does not do a very good job of it. Even at stock clock speeds, the delivered temperatures are "high" for an enthusiast's tastes. This stock cooling solution is meant to keep the silicon within the thermal boundaries set by the manufacturer and must do so in all the chips running in cramped, poorly ventilated cases that are the hallmark of the mass builder. When you think of it, how many die prematurely from running to hot? Cooling and chassis technology have come a long way, with products out now that allow us, enthusiasts and gamers, to step away from that poorly ventilated case and CPU running at stock speeds.
Bottom line- loses to the Noctua.

Personally I'd buy the H80 since the Noctua isn't that cheap either, and is huge.

Agreed and agreed.

I'm just guessing, but I think he means that it gives great temps [albeit not beating the D14] and looks better.

While the D14 only offers awesome temps.

Again, not sure, taking a shot in the dark.

Anyways, I still love my H80.

i mean to say that D14 give better temp than h80.But its ugly
H80 give 2C-3C more that's not an issue but H80 look very good in case
i will buy it soon

Indeed. It seems the price of self-contained liquid cooling units are getting cheaper (considering the price the H60 is now compared to the H50 last year) making them much more tempting, and you don't have to put up with huge air coolers.

From the H series only the H100 is interesting, though I don't understand why only 1 site review it?!
post #9 of 114
And D14 wins again. It's crazy how even the latest closed-loop watercoolers can't beat that monster of an air cooler back from Dec 2009.

Considering both coolers will achieve the same thing (high OC with plenty of temp headroom to spare) i'll take the one that doesn't fill up half the case. The H80 is awesome
