In the automotive world "GT" stands for Gran Turismo (or Grand Tourer), though it often connotes that a model will have more power and speed. Thus, in the parlance of PC components it makes sense that this would represent the fast version of a part - or in this case, a cooler version.

We haven’t reviewing one of the new "GT" all-in-one liquid cooler revisions from Corsair just yet (stay tuned, we will soon!) but we reported on the new H110i GT cooler during CES 2015, which is a large 280mm design. The two new coolers being announced will be the smaller 240mm and 120mm entries in the Hydro series of AIO coolers, and they presumably replace the venerable “i” versions of the well-known H100 and H80 liquid coolers in the lineup.

Extending the same new colorful (and customizable) design options from the previously mentioned H110i cooler, the new H100i GTX and H80i GT share these features:

  • Improved coldplate and pump design
  • Dual SP120L PWM static pressure fans
  • Modular, tool-free mounting bracket for faster installation
  • Built-in Corsair Link support for configuring fan and pump speeds
  • Use Corsair Link to customize the RGB LED lighting and monitor multiple system temps
  • Support for Intel LGA 115x, 1366, 2011 and AMD AM2, AM3, FM1, FM2 coolers
  • 5-year limited warranty

There are a couple of important distinctions separating these new models (other than the obvious size difference). With the H80i GT this is the radiator thickness, which is a whopping 49mm thick, making its potential for heavy-duty cooling in smaller spaces a very interesting prospect. The H100i GTX on the other hand offers user-replaceable pump and radiator caps.

The MSRP for the H100i GTX will be $119.99, with the H80i GT priced at $99.99. These will be available from the usual retail locations beginning this month.

This looks like they are finally dropping the CoolIT based units, based on the pics of the cpu block these look like Asetek. :(

I think CoolIT has dropped this OEM AIO business, and seem to concentrate only on making cooling for datacenters and servers. I do like the look of these new coolers only thing wrong with them is the fans don't have square frames and these frames tend to leak air rather than push through fins of radiator.

What the hell are you talking about? Corsair been heavily abusing that AssTake's ultra-crappy patent troll design for YEARS. This trash is in every first-and-a-half Corsair's AIO unit they've released so far.

So do these actually use wider tubing or do they just cover over to give illusion that its better?

Damn that's ugly. And AssTake's crap yet again, too.
No. Just. No. I'll still stay with my Swiftech's GODLIKE H240-X, thank you very much.
