Specifications and Package

There are many similarities between the H80 and H100 units, so we’ll focus on the differences and move on from there. Primarily, the H80 comes with two fans in a push-pull on a thick 120mm radiator, while the H100 comes with two 120mm fans on a slimline 240mm radiator. The H80 is compatible with almost all cases that feature a 120mm rear or top fan mount, while the H100 will need a case that can accommodate the longer rad length.
