Corsair H80 CPU Cooler

There is a review of the Corsair H80 CPU cooler posted at Hardware Secrets for those of you interested. You can see our evaluation here for comparison purposes.

We tested the cooler with a Core i7-860 CPU (quad-core, 2.8 GHz), which is a socket 1156 processor with a 95 W TDP (Thermal Design Power). In order to get higher thermal dissipation, we overclocked it to 3.3 GHz (150 MHz base clock and 22x multiplier), keeping the standard core voltage (Vcore), which was the maximum stable overclock we could make with the stock cooler.
