Don't confuse the Corsair H80 High Performance liquid cooler as a less expensive version of the H100 Extreme, with a price difference of $10 you will be disappointed with it.  Instead think of it like a small form factor version of the very large H100.  It is not quite reduced 50% in size, sitting at 152mm (6") x 120mm (4.7") x  38mm (1.5") it has a substantial radiator but not big enough for a pair of 120mm fans to be needed.  Overall it performed as well as the larger H100 if not better but like its bigger brother it falls behind the competition once [H]ard|OCP breaks out price to performance measurements.

"Today we are reviewing the Corsair Hydro Series H80 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler. This cooler may look very familiar in that it is a step down from the flagship Corsair H100, but still carries much of the same DNA. Basically the H80 is about $10 less expensive with a lot less radiator to worry about."
