The Corsair Hydro H80 promises to bring the easy-to-install, all-in-one water cooling seen in the H60 to new levels with new and improved components, including a beefier radiator. See just how well it performs compared to both its predecessor and the competition in our latest liquid CPU cooling review.

Nice review, NeoSeeker. I have an H80 sitting right in front of me right now. Peeked at the h60, h80, and H100, and the H80 seems to $$ for the H100. I need cooling, using an 8 core FX-8150, so this is coming at the right time for me.
I'be glad to give a report on its use in the real world. My system runs hot when backing up Drive C: (Velociraptor 600GB) using Acronis, which grabs 100% of all eight cores and overheats (65C) roughtly halfway through the backup (65GB) using the stock air cooler.
I'm hoping to get that down a bit with the H80. Looking forward to it! I'm also upping the CPU from the 8120 to the FX-8150, using 4x4GB 1866Hz Corsair Vengeance DDR3 and a GTX580 SC. Object: To get to do quick video rendering work, along with digital music in the studio here. Adobe.com certifies the GTX580 as being able to be "borrowed" during rendering operations for Prem-Pro.
