We present an X-ray study of the galaxy group RGH 80, observed by XMM-Newton . The X-ray emission of the gas is detected out to ~ kpc, corresponding to ~. The group is relatively gas rich and luminous with respect to its temperature of 1.01 ± 0.01 keV. Using the deprojected spectral analysis, we find that the temperature peaks at ~1.3 keV around , and then decreases inwards to 0.83 keV at the center and outwards to ~ of the peak value at large radii. Within the central ~60 kpc of the group where the gas cooling time is less than the Hubble time, a two-temperature model with temperatures of 0.82 and 1.51 keV and the Galactic absorption gives the best fit of the spectra, with ~ volume occupied by the cool component. We also derive the gas entropy distribution, which is consistent with the prediction of cooling and/or internal heating models. Furthermore, the abundances of O, Mg, Si, S and Fe decrease monotonically with radius. With the observed abundance ratio pattern, we estimate that ~ or ~ of the iron mass is contributed by SN Ia, depending on the adopted SN II models.
