Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Corsair.

The majority of all-in-one CPU cooling systems are designed with a radiator that is based on the dimensions of a single or dual fan. It’s common sense that, for a given fan size, a dual-width radiator has more surface area and better cooling capability than a single-width unit. The new Corsair Hydro series H80i GT challenges this assumption with an extra thick single-width radiator and two fans for out of the box push-pull operation.

In this article, Benchmark Reviews will look at the performance of the new Corsair H80i GT all-in-one cooling system and compare it to some of the competition.


The Corsair Hydro Series H80i GT Is based on a standard 120mm fan size, but has a radiator depth of 49mm to provide increased cooling surface area. This should translate to improved cooling performance compared to a typical single fan radiator.

Corsair link functionality is built into the unit to provide selectable speed operation of the unit as well as temperature and RPM monitoring capability.

Key features of the H80i GT from the Corsair website are:

  • extra thick 49mm x 120mm radiator
  • dual SP120L PWM fans
  • Corsair link compatible
  • modular tool free mounting bracket for faster installation
  • improved cold plate and pump designed for highly tuned efficiency
