Corsair H80 question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi I was thinking about a corsair H80 for my new build for 2500k CPU. What do you guys think of this CPU, of course I will overclock it.
Can anyone tell me how good it is it?
The temps if OCed around 4.0-4.5 GHz?

I have an H80 on my 2600k and it's good up to 5GHz. It should work fine for you since the 2500k will more than likely be putting out less heat than my 2600k.

I just got a H80 myself and it is on its way back to Corsair because the pump didn't work =(

On the highest fan speed its obnoxiously loud. I wear headphones when I game and I could still hear it so I dropped it to the medium setting.

I run an h80 on a 2600k @5.0ghz w/1.49v
idle sits in the mid to upper 20's normal loading high 30's low 40s
bf3 gets it up to 58c and folding at 100& for 24 hour maxes at 62-64c or so
I"m not using the stock fans, I had some 90cfm ones laying around that i tossed on it.,

Great, I love my H80. I hit 59°C MAX (56 - 57° on average) at 4.5 GHz (1.27v) after 15 hours of Prime Blend test. Safe to assume that I'm comfortably below 50°C while gaming at 4.5 Ghz.

I never possessed a 920 so I can't compare the two and say which one is better, I don't know. Yes the H80 is loud if it is cranked up to the max, but pretty much all devices are. I always let mine to mid and I barely hear it.
