The flexible, powerful 120mm liquid CPU cooling system for high performance PCs
The Hydro Series H80i v2 is a high performance, all-in-one liquid CPU cooler that works with standard 120mm radiator mounts. The extra-thick 49mm x 120mm radiator and dual SP120L PWM fans provide the excellent heat dissipation you need for high performance CPUs. It’s Corsair Link compatible, so you can customize cooling performance, monitor system temperature, and change the color of the RGB LED lighting.
The 120mm radiator works with standard 120mm fan mounts for wide compatibility, but has a depth of 49mm for increased cooling surface area and faster, more efficient cooling.
Customized cooling performance
You can select the speed of the dual SP120L PWM fans via the Corsair Link control panel or any standard fan speed utility. And, you have options: use just one fan to save space, or install both in a push-pull configuration for extra cooling efficiency.
Built-in Corsair Link
Attach the included Corsair Link cable to a USB header on your motherboard and download the free Corsair Link software to unlock even more power.
You can customize cooling performance, monitor coolant and CPU temperatures, and change the color of the RGB LED lighting from the default white to match your system or to change color based on temperature readings and other inputs.
High-performance CPU cooling made simple
The H80i v2 is a closed loop design that comes pre-filled. It includes a modular, tool-free mounting bracket for faster installation, and it features improved coldplate and pump designs for highly tuned efficiency.

Now, the flaw, and it’s not insignificant.... check your motherboard for capacitors that are inside that box created by the heat sink support holes. If you have any capacitors inside that area, and a LOT of MBs do, these coolers WILL NOT mount correctly without modification.
They will SEEM fine, but if you look at the core temps on the side of the processor where the capacitors are you will notice that those cores run hotter by 10c or more.
Now, this flaw is fixable if you’re a semi-competent PC builder all you need to do is sand about .01” off the edge that overhangs the capacitors. It’s such a tiny interference it’s ridiculous but it’s there, and if you’re having overheating problems with these Corsair products, this is why.
With the compatibility issues solved the H80i really does a good cooling job, will not be my last water cooler but will do my homework a little better before purchasing the next time.
I don't see myself trying for a 5GHz overclock any time soon, but it's nice to have that headroom for overclock if needed in the future. No bells or whistles (RGBs, software tools, etc.) to drive the price up, so makes an excellent entry-level AIO cooler for those of us who aren't going nuts on our setups.
One slight negative: The included 120mm fan is much louder (3-5 db) than the case fan that was in before. You might want to replace this with a quieter fan if your build is pretty silent already. I'm making some plans in this regard, but it isn't enough to make me rush out and buy a replacement.
Keep in mind that it doesn't screw straight into the backplate like the stock AMD cooler does... it uses the hook type and requires those little plastic brackets that come with AM4 motherboards (seen in attached picture), which you don't use with the stock AMD cooler. I made the mistake of losing the screws for the plastic pieces when I got my motherboard and took the plastic pieces off to install the AMD cooler and had to find some spare screws lying around.
This is my first AIO and once I found and installed the motherboard brackets (something you wouldn't have to do if you're installing this when first building your PC) it was about a 10 minute installation. Very easy process. The tubes are the perfect length for the Phanteks P400, and probably most cases with a rear exhaust fan in that general location (so, like, pretty much any ATX mid- or full-tower case).
Now for why I almost derated it to 4 stars:
The fan. For one, it's pretty loud just from RPM alone. At full speed, it's very audible and quite distracting in my otherwise quiet computer (during CPU intensive tasks such as video encoding, though in gaming this won't be a problem as the GPU will be much louder). It also only goes as low as 1000rpm which is still pretty audible while comparable fans will easily spin down to 500rpm, or are able to stop completely when the system is under light load and be totally silent.
Unfortunately it doesn't stop there.. not sure if it's my particular one or something with all of them but mine has an audible rattle while spinning. It happens whether the fan is mounted vertically or horizontally and in the full RPM range. Quite distracting, especially at idle when my rig is otherwise almost completely silent.
I promptly replaced the fan with a Phanteks 120mm, PWM, High Static Pressure Radiator Retail Cooling Fan PH-F120MP_BK_PWM fan for $15... much better. Totally silent at lower RPMs and even at full bore it's massively quieter than the stock Corsair. Highly recommend this fan if you're having issues with the stock one. If you don't care about noise, however, the Corsair fan is just fine and dandy.
That said, even though the fan sucked, I didn't think that was worthy of knocking off a star, because the cooler itself is simply awesome.
I am running the pump at 3400rpm ("performance" mode on ASRock motherboard) instead of full speed (4200rpm). That might affect temperatures slightly, but not much I don't think. Idle temps are around 29-30 degrees.
Temps reported by HWMonitor in degrees Celsius (using the Phanteks fan)
Ryzen 3 1200 @ 4.025GHz 1.35V
AIDA64 V5.95.4500 - 1 Hour, FPU calculations stress test
Max: 63 degrees
HWMonitor Powers section shows peak package power of 74 Watts.
My Fan Curve is rather aggressive, yet the CPU fan only reached a max of 1090rpm during the entire test. So even though it was being stressed the cooler was eerily quiet. Mighty impressive for a $50 cooler.
IntelBurnTest V2.54 - 4096MB RAM preset stress test ran 20 times (approximately 1 hour)

HWMonitor Powers section shows peak package power of 100 Watts.
CPU Fan never went above 1032 RPM during the entire test. Again, eerily quiet.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend this to anyone wanting an affordable cooler that performs well. I can't speak for its longevity yet as I have only had it a few days, but I'll update after a few months, or if it ever fails I'll be sure to update. I'm certain it could handle a larger CPU (i.e. the higher end Ryzens) with ease. Very impressive little thing. If I ever need to buy an AIO for another computer, I'll be taking a look at Corsair from the start, and probably this one.
