Great liquid cooler but its no dual core radiator. Single core packs a punch for what it offers. I am running a 4790k with a 4.6 overclock and it runs from 25 idle to 70-72 on full load.
I really like this cooler its not the smallest and easiest thing to fit into a case but it does work great and looks amazing and I love the rgb lighting on the waterblock. The Lines were pretty stiff and little frustrating for me because this was my first build so I was worried I would mess something up.
I had my eye on a water cooled PC from the start but knew I should ease into the field with just the CPU closed loop to start. The Corsair H80i GT was recommended from a friend and it works great. At idle I am never over 28C however I have yet to really push the limits (while update accordingly as I progress). My only qualm with this is that I am unable to fit both fans onto the radiator. I instead used one fan on the bottom as an intake and the other on the rear intake for the radiator. Corsair Link helped me regulate these fans however they are very loud. Pro: Cooler keeps me CPU and room super cool! No complaints on the power this pump provides. Con: Stock fans are decently loud. Looking for quieter 4 pin 120mm fans that have a blue led.
Was recommended by someone at Frys Electronics for my i5-4690K as he had the same cpu. Glad I choose to go with this cooler as it keeps the cpu VERY cool while overclocked and runs quiet with the Corsair Link software.
Had to return to Fry's for another unit as the pump stopped working causing my cpu temps to skyrocket! Since replacing it with another all is well again.
The Corsair H80i GT pump stopped working again but at least this time it took about a year for it to happen. Had to RMA and Corsair sent a brand new H80i V2. Now lets see how long this one will last....
One of the best Liquid Coolers keeps my i5-6600K under 45c when overclocking
At the performance mode, it makes some rattle noise every few seconds when its on low, but its pretty quiet at the quiet settings.
Previously, I was using the NH-L12, but it requires a top exhaust fan to keep it cool which makes quite a bit more noise than I wanted. Then I bought the H80i GT from where I work (employee discount~) and I find it pretty quiet and able to kept the temp under 50c in normal use which the L12 can't. But it feels like the tubing is flexing the motherboard @.@
Keeps my i5-6600K super cool. Idle is 26°, high 60°’s under load.
I'd like to see improvement with the flexibility of the tubing, all while keeping the system secure and just as functional. The tubes block my Corsair LED, and I frequently worry about breaking them.
This Cooler is amazing for the price! It's not that big and it's not the best in the world, but if you don't need more than that, like me, it's perfect! The installation can be a bit difficult if you're alone to do it, so arm yourself with some patience. In some cases, like mine, it blocks the holes that allow you to access the back, so you can't do much with those cables. I don't remove a star for that, because I blame the case for having too little holes that reach to the back.
Great cooling system, quality construction, was everything I expected this cooler to be and more. Keeps my system very cool.
Great look and the Corsair Link is so useful. I have all the fans configured to get the best out of them no matter what I'm doing.
