When I see the posting I was like WTF is that!
Cool little design for sure. What voltage are you testing for 4.2 ghz?
They are thinking out of the box (pun intended) with this one. Too bad about the price point and the noise!
Yeah - something other than the usual AIO´s - too bad with the price and the noise - kind of like the radiator...
Kudos must be given to Zalman for the unique design. Seems to cool well too but that NOISE!!!!!!! damn that is crazy.
If Zalman can reduce the noise level on the next iteration this would be one badass product. I was tempted by the single 120mm reserator cooler (purely for the unique design tbh) for my setup but the noise put me off.
Decent performance, but like all AIO water kits, it needs a pair of leaf blowers to get that performance.
The H80i is the last AIO water kit I'm getting before some generation leaps are made for them, it just isn't worth it unless you have no room for a big tower cooler. You have to balance noise with performance. With a pair of good beQuiet PWM fans, at around 1000 rpm (where they're silent) it barely performs 1-2C better than a Hyper 212 Evo (with the same fans).
We seriously need to up our standards with this grading, seriously, mediocre performance, bigger, bulkier and pretty much the loudest of them all and it still gets an 8.9? how shitty must one be to get like a 7 or so?
Unrelated, but I seriously never thought i'd see the day air cooler were hanging with and beating liquid. Speaking Noctua and CryOrig mainly
AIO liquid coolers, not custom loops. Big difference here.
