Up Close

The H80i v2 is a 120mm fan based AIO from Corsair.  It comes neatly packaged in a striking yellow and black box, the exterior of which has images of the cooler as well as pertinent technical data on the product.

The Cooler and the other components are protected by plastic bags and the now familiar formed egg box card.  the two white boxes you can see are adding further protection to the pair of 120mm fans.

The H80i v2 comes with the fitting for Intel processors already attached, but Corsair do supply an AMD fitting.  It goes without saying that all other fittings required are included.

The Rad itself is quite a chunky monkey at 49mm thick, which when combined with a pair of 120mm fans will give the assembly an overall thickness of 99mm.  This pretty much means that it's unlikely to fit in the roof of a case unless there's a significant offset, but should fit in the rear of most cases.  The rad is finished in satin black and has nice silver/pewter coloured Corsair logo plaques attached to each side.  The wide diameter pipes are beautifully braided in gloss black braid, ansd we have to say look stunning.

The Pump assembly also has a pewter plaque, and can be illuminated with RGB LEDs via the Corsair link software.  the Cold head contact face is copper and comes supplied with TIM applied.  We will of course be removing it for testing and using our Noctua TIM as always.

The radiator measures 154x123x49mm, and has a total of 12 water channels with a fin density of 21 fins per inch, making it quite dense.

The H80i v2 had to be fitted to the rear of our case as it was to large to fit in the roof.  Experience though has shown us over the years that there is no real difference in performance for these two positions.  Fitting was easy enough, although it was quite a fiddle to hold the assembly in place while passing the fan screws through from behind.

 The tubing flexes well and cuts a nice even curve as it moves between the cold head and the rad.

Once downloaded and installed, the Corsair link software gives you information on installed components, and pretty much enables you to take control of every element of the cooler, from fan speed, via set profiles, to any of a myriad of colours for the cold plate lighting via the colour and shade fader.

Amazing amount of in depth analysis and explanation fellows, as always, thank you for not only presenting detailed and thorough information but explaining the points you make and why certain aspects/elements are more effective.

Great to see Cryorig putting up great figures. Seems like all of their offerings are at least solid, if not phenomenal, especially for the value.Quote
