H80 vs H80i?

Question

Posted

Hy, I'm looking to get into water cooling, for overclocking my 3570K. :p

I can't tell much of the difference between the two. I read certain things on it, over google, but WHAT really is the (now) $10 difference between them?

The H80 is pretty loud when you first turn your system on. An the H80i is ment to solve that problem + other things.

Ah, OK, so I guess the current $10 difference is well worth it.

I use the H80 and must say it does an excellent job cooling my 1.5ghz overclock. True, at post the fans run max RPM for 5 seconds or so as a test, but I'd rather them do that and I find something wrong than they just sit at 1900 rpm and fail quietly as my temps skyrocket. It really isn't that long, but I think if the H80i resolves other issues or adds improvements aside the fan test at post then I'd say go for it. If it's just the fan noise during startup you're concerned about, save the 10 bucks and grab the h80, love it.
