Being closed-loop models, they don't need external reservoirs or pumps
Corsair's Hydro Series H100 and H80 have gone long enough without successors. The company has decided to take the concepts behind them and use them in new products.The photos below are of the Hydro Series H100i and H80i closed-loop liquid coolers. They are “a ground-up re-design” of the other ones, with larger diameter tubes and more efficient copper cold plates.
The former has a 240mm radiator and two fans, while the latter has a 120mm radiator with a single spinner.
Sales will begin this month (November 2012). The Hydro Series H100i is priced at $119.99 / 119.99 Euro, while the Hydro Series H80i bears a tag of $99.99 / 99.99 Euro.
"Class-leading performance, and reliable, quiet CPU cooling have made the Hydro Series the most popular and award-winning liquid CPU coolers in the world," said Thi La, senior VP & GM of memory and enthusiast component products at Corsair.
