:banghead: I just bought a H80 few weeks back lol. Well it works very well, and I think this might be even better. However, the fans they came with were terrible and to loud for my taste. I used some Noctua fans I had left over, and the temps and sound has been great.

I'm digging the smooth finished tubes and quieter fans. I've never liked the corrugated tubes often found on Corsair AIO liquid cooling products. To me, anyway, I find the smooth finised tubes a lot more aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

The H80i is way overpriced, only $20 difference from the H100i.
H100i=$0.5 per mm
H80i=$0.83 Per mm

I suppose the block/pump assembly is the pricier part then.

The H80 fits perfectly on the case-fan area at the rear of the case. You have to do something special for the larger rad.

in other words, the h80 is for everyone(almost), the h100 isnt.

Why the hell no one specifies tubes lenght!? Here on picture they look damn short. I'm looking for a closed loop cooler for my PC-V354 case but they all brag about awesome features and they just forget about the most important, tubes lenght...

it's nice to see what looks like rubber tubes, and not the plastic once on the normal H100 which i just bought on sale not long ago, i guess i will be jumping on the H100i when it comes out...

H80i=$0.83 Per mm
Rad thickness is quite a bit different between the H80 and 100. Calculate off volume. H80i will sell better in general as well as the 100i is much harder to fit cases.

Cannot wait to see performance comparisons of the old vs new to see if the new pump design helps out. bet it does as that was one of the main weak points (mega low flow) of the old design. :toast:

Quote from Corsair George, a Corsair rep on another forum:

At 200W of heat, it's about 3 degrees C and 2-3 dBA quieter.
I'd say not bad for a refresh, naturally we'll have to see independent reviews but these numbers seem pretty honest ;)

3dB is technically 100% decrease in volume - not perceived 100% but technically speaking. I could more than live with that :) 3C is a nice decrease as well.

Shame they didn't go with a 280mm design for the dual-rad. I like what NZXT(Asetek) is offering in that regard.

Would be nice to see a larger radiator, but how many can realistically fit a 280mm radiator? Sales and return volumes will be very high on something like that. I am curious to a comparison between the H100i and the NZXT version with larger radiator as the corsair unit has superior fans.

Is the block/pump a new design, or the same as the regular H80/H100 (ECO II)? Assuming by the prices, the rads still use aluminum fins/tubes and they haven't switched over to copper/brass. Atleast they switched over to the more manageable tubing that the Asetek units use.

I don't understand, maybe the systems that others had came with shitty fans. The ones that mine came with are the most solidly built 120mm fans I have ever seen. The noise of both the fans are less than the single stock AMD HSF.

Temps on a small (20%) overclock are 23c idle, 37c load.
Please include the ambient room temperature. Since not all of us have Air-conditioning, and live in warmer regions than other's. Those temps mean nothing to me.

The ambient room temperature of my room is around 32 degrees. That said, running a antec kuhler 920, AMD PII 1090T, idles at 39 degrees celcius, and maxes out at 49 degrees under load.
Bought it over the more expensive corsair H80 and don't regret it at all. It performs admirably. Changed the stock fans to something that moves more air through and is quieter, and its bloody good.
