The H80i features a 120mm radiator but the actual length of it including the reservoir where the tubes connect the pump/block comes to 152mm.

As it is an AIO liquid CPU cooler, the H80i features a radiator with 2 tubes that allow for water to flow from the radiator to the pump/CPU block and of course a couple of power connectors so the pump can do its job.  The logo on the pump actually illuminates and can the colour can be customised via the Corsair Link application software.

To power up the H80i, you will need one SATA power connector from your power supply and will also need to plug the 3-pin header onto your motherboards CPU fan header.

The H80i comes with thermal paste pre-applied so it is ready to use right out of the box with minimal work having to be done; this is of course you want to use your own which we of course will for the testing with the Noctua NT-H1 thermal paste.

On the north side of the pump is where the included USB connector plugs in which is to make use of the included Corsair Link software.

You will also notice that Corsair have included two fan headers and the H80i comes with a splitter allowing 2 fans to connect to 1 header on the unit itself.  This is most likely due to the fact Corsair use the same pump/block for both the H80i and H100i; saving on overall productions costs and of course the H100i is a 240mm radiator which can accommodate 4 x 120mm fans in total.

The Corsair logo on the pump features an RGB LED and  as I previously mentioned, is controlled via the Corsair Link Software.
