Corsair Hydro 80 v1: replace or fix?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, my Hydro80 is aging: the internal fan does't spin anymore, I have not even clue on how to verify that the liquid is actually flowing correctly (btw, is there any way to check this?)
temperature wise, I'd say everything looks normal, but you never know, after all this cooling system will be 6 years old in a few weeks.
So, I am looking for some wisdom: should I simply change the fan(s) -and that's 50$- and perhaps keep going, or simply buy a new one altogether (100$)?

thanks

I'd just buy a new cooler. 6 years is really good but it's time to move on lol.

I see. Any advice for the migration?

I'd get one of the handful of good air coolers. Less things to go wrong, quieter, and cheaper. Will match or beat the H80 in performance as well. Cryorig, Phanteks, Thermalright, and Noctua all have great offerings, to name a few.

If you want to stick with a CLC or AIO, how much space do you have? Budget?

Based off his case, looks like he has room for rear: 1x120mm and top: 2x120mm.

As stated before, I'd just go with a high end air cooler. If your looking for to stay with a close loop water unit, get whatever you fancy.

wait, quieter than liquid? really? that would be awesome, I am out of the geeky stuff since this last build (okay, I know, that's a lot) so for sure I am unaware of many improvements that are available. Would you kindly point out for me some precise model that would outperform the H80 for this rig? keep in mind that it's OCed to 4.6Ghz, but I don't plan to OC any further.

this is extremely interesting, I remained stuck to the archetype of "liquid cooling outperforming air cooling" which now seems surpassed, so I would ask to you the same question: please, point out some model that would outperform the H80v2 and is compatible with my case/socket. Thanks! smile.gif

Take a look at this for example: https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/7986/thermalright-le-grand-macho-rt-cpu-cooler-review/index6.html

Other options include the Cryorig H5, Phanteks TC14PE, and the Noctua D15S.

wow! biggrin.gif does that thing really fit in my case? xD

the Corsair H80i still has the edge on cooling with average 2° less than air cooling, but noise wise AC wins hands down....

thanks a lot, that was useful thumb.gif

The one I linked is 159mm tall, while your case supports coolers up to 180mm. You shouldn't have much issue with clearance with any cooler. One thing to look out for is the cooler potentially interfering with your RAM slots, however.
