[Hard OCP] Corsair H80 review

Not much difference with the H100.

The main difference is the H100 is much quieter with the same fans while being couple degrees cooler.

The H100 is only 2C cooler because Corsair uses the stock config - the H80 is push/pull out of the box while the H100 isn't. Adding two more fans to the H100 would widen the gap a bit more.

Review shows H100 in push pull only beats the h80 by 2.4 degrees. Seems pretty fail to me...

A little blurry, but that's the chart on the box for the H80/H100. The H100, with two fans, is around 2C cooler than the H80. Not sure how/why adding another two fans for push/pull would have no effect

That testing was done by corsair wasn't it? Can't really trust them testing their own product. This is the only review so far and there is only a one degree improvement when 2 more fans are added. Guess we need more reviews.

Can't really trust them testing their own product? They test under heavily-controlled lab conditions. Corsair George has talked about it a bit on these forums, and they seem to be very thorough.

So wait Antec 920 is both better then H100 and H80?
Edit: Never-mind was looking at stock settings.
