CRHi02 300x199 Corsair Hydro H80i & H100i CPU liquid coolers review

H80i Packaging

Corsair supplies the H80i inside a sturdy cardboard box with a serious black/red visual theme. Inside the box, the contents are well-packed in plastic bags and protected inside environmentally-friendly cardboard material.

H100i packaging

The box which the H100i comes in is very similar to that of the H80i, just a little larger and with a different picture decorating the front side of the box. Once again, everything inside the box is packed inside plastic bags and firmly secured.

Bundled items

Both liquid kits share the exact same bundle, which is depicted above. Corsair supplies a thorough installation manual, a warranty card, installation plates for AMD and Intel processors, the necessary hardware to install the cooling block, the fans and the radiator, a Y cable for the two radiator fans and an USB cable for the Link interface. We should note that the H100i comes with two Y fan cables, allowing the user to monitor up to four fans; however, only two fans are supplied with the kit.

SP120L cooling fans

Corsair supplies two SP120L fans with either the H80i or the H100i. The fans have been rebranded and thus we are unsure who the OEM is; after examining a fan however, we discovered that they are using dual ball bearings. The maximum speed of the fans is 2700RPM and each of the fans is rated for 37.7dB(A) and 77CFM at that speed.
