Corsair Liquid Coolers Bigger and Badder Than Ever James White February 5, 2013 Press Release 1 Flares 1 Flares × Corsair is not backing down from the move into self-contained closed loop water cooling systems. This year, after some new updates to previous models, they are expanding on variety by offering options. The focus of the new Hydro Series H110 and H90 is low noise cooling thanks to super-sizing everything. The previous Hydro coolers use 120 mm and 240 mm radiators with matching fans. The new H90 and H110 use 140 mm and 280 mm radiators with matching fans. The increase in surface area means you can match heat dissipation and air movement with lower speed fans, which reduces noise. This would be good enough, but Corsair also took the opportunity to actually increase performance. In addition to larger fans and a larger radiator, Corsair also added an enhanced copper cold plate to increase heat transfer. If you are going to have a larger radiator you might as well use it. The kit also comes with braces for both Intel and AMD sockets released in the last few years and the foreseeable future. The Hydro H110 and H90 are available now for $129.99 and $99.99 respectively. Full Press Release » Corsair Super-sizes Hydro Series Liquid Coolers with 280 mm and 140 mm Sizes – New Corsair Hydro Series H110 and H90 Liquid CPU Coolers Deliver Extreme Cooling and Quieter Operation – January 17, 2013—Corsair®, designer of high-performance PC hardware components, today announced the Hydro Series™ H110 and H90 liquid CPU coolers. With huge radiator cooling surfaces areas of 280 mm and 140 mm respectively and specially designed 140 mm low-speed, high static pressure fans, the new coolers deliver superior CPU cooling and quieter operation than smaller 120 mm designs. The Hydro Series H110 is a low-noise, high-performance liquid CPU cooler with a double-length 280 mm by 140 mm radiator. The H110 radiator's large surface area provides more contact room for heat dissipation and for side-by-side mounting of dual fans. Each fan is a specially-designed low-speed 140 mm static pressure fan, which moves much more air per decibel of noise than 120 mm fans. Combined, the larger radiators and lower fan-speeds produce better performance with much lower noise levels than smaller 120 mm dual-fan coolers. The H110 fits cases with dual 140 mm top fan mounts and 20 mm screw spacing. The Hydro Series H90, like the H110, is a low-noise, high-performance liquid CPU cooler, but with a more compact square 140 mm radiator and a single 140 mm static pressure fan. The large radiator and spacious surface area combined with lower fan-speeds produce better performance than smaller 120 mm single fan coolers with lower noise. The H90 is compatible with many cases with a rear or top 140 mm fan mount. The Hydro Series H110 and H90 liquid coolers feature an enhanced copper cold plate with soaks up heat more efficiently than previous generation designs. Both coolers are compatible with most modern CPU platforms including AMD AM2, AM3, AM3+, FM2 and FM1 and Intel LGA 1155, LGA 1156, LGA 1366, and LGA 2011. "Many PC enthusiasts choose liquid cooling for its extreme cooling efficiency and quiet operation," said Thi La, Senior VP and GM of Memory and Enthusiast Component Products at Corsair. "To take liquid cooling the next level, we super-sized the Hydro Series H110 and H90, providing users our best cooling-to-noise ratio ever." Pricing and Availability The Corsair Hydro Series H110 and Hydro Series H90 liquid coolers are immediately available from Corsair’s worldwide network of resellers and distributors. Suggested retail prices in the United States are $129.99 for the H110 and $99.99 for the H90.
