Corsair H80i GT Rushkit/ First look
When it comes to AIO liquid coolers it is easy to say that Corsair provide some of the best on the market. While Corsair do not offer features like expandability into a new or existing custom water cooling loop, they do provide a great deal of customisation options through their Corsair Link Software as well as fantastic cooling performance.
Compared to the H80i the H80i GT does a lot to differentiate them, firstly the radiator on the H80i GT is thicker, with a thichness of 49mm compared to the 38mm thickness of the H80i. This difference in thickness is an difference of over 25%, which should give a great increase in cooling performance over the older H80i.
Both the H80i and the GT use the same PWM 120mm Corsair SP120L fans and have the customisable LED's in the water block, which can be accessed through the Corsair link software. The H80i GT is also compatible with all major CPU sockets used today.
Corsair have also changed the CPU block/ pump and the tubing used in the Corsair Hydro Series. The Tubing is now covered in a gorgeous braid, which undoubtedly makes the unit look a lot nicer, especially if you use braided cables for your PSU.
Looking at the pump we see a very different to the H80i, it is constructed from dense plastic and sports a brushed Aluminium effect central section imprinted with the Corsair name and sail logo. The CPU block has two built-in rotary fittings which help prevent the tubing from kinking.
Personally I prefer this new look from Corsair, as having worked with the H80i for some time now I really prefer this new look to the H80i's glossy black, which I found to be very prone to finger prints and smudging.

The H80i GT has a lot of improvements over it's older brother, both in terms of aesthetics and specifications. We at OC3D cannot wait to put this on our test bench and give you guys a full review of this unit.
If the H110i GT was anything to go by, we expect great things from this AIO watercooler, especially given the fact that this uses a thicker radiator than it's predecessor.
