Corsair launches Hydro Series H90, H110

Corsair launches Hydro Series H90, H110

Corsair's new Hydro Series H90 and H110 sealed-loop watercoolers feature 140mm fans for the first time, alongside a revised cold plate design.

Corsair has announced a new pair of entries in its Hydro Series sealed-loop watercooling rigs which pack vital extra inches for those whose cases can take the load.

The Corsair Hydro Series H90, to start, features a square 140mm radiator fitted as standard with a single 140mm static pressure fan, compared to the 120mm radiator and fan used in the H80. The result, Corsair claims, is improved cooling from the extra surface area of the larger radiator and reduced noise from a slower-spinning fan that can nevertheless shift the same amount of air.

For those with more heat to shift, the Hydro Series H110 doubles things up to a 280mm by 140mm rectangular radiator fitted with a pair of 140mm static-pressure fans side-by-side. Again, Corsair claims improved cooling at lower noise levels that its last-generation Hydro Series H100 version, which used a 240mm by 120mm radiator with a pair of 120mm fans.

Both models include a revised cold plate design, constructed again from copper but offering a claimed improvement in heat transfer compared to the design used in the H80 and H100 models. Both are supplied with fittings for Intel socket LGA 1155, 1156, 1366 and 2011 and AMD socket AM2, AM3, AM3+, FM1 and FM2.

With the radiators taking extra room, however, cramming the new models into your case may be a struggle: Corsair advises that the H110 will fit in the top of cases that have dual 140mm fan mounts with a 20mm screw spacing, while the smaller H90 should be compatible with any case that has a rear or top 140mm fan mount.

UK pricing for the new coolers has yet to be announced, with Corsair setting US recommended retail prices at $99.99 for the Hydro Series H90 and $129.99 for the larger Hydro Series H110 (around £63 and £82 respectively, excluding taxes.)

The H90 in a mITX case would be a great combo.

Still with the stupidly thing rad, why can't they make a Enthusiast grade one with a 45mm or 60mm rad as I then would probably buy one but at the moment, I would rather pay more for a custom loop and get a decent rad.

Not saying that these are not good coolers but for me I wouldn't buy one without it having a better rad on it.

I think if you're going for a 45/60mm radiator, you might as well just get a proper custom kit..

The H100's etc do exactly what they are designed for very well, hence why they sell like hotcakes. Getting a 3750 up to 4.7Ghz or so perfectly stably is no mean feat.

And so now we wait for AF140 fans in the different varieties. And the subsequent H90i and H110i?

Why aren't these named to follow the others in the series such as the H80i and the H100i?

the i models have the 'corsair link' gubbinz, these don't, hence, no i

Seems a bit pointless for them to release these, considering I am sure that in a few months they will release 'i' Versions.

These look alright to be honest, they gave NZXT the competition quickly. Although I prefer NZXT in general.

Would be good to see these for GPUs sometime soon. I reckon the only thing stopping them is that there are so many different cards to cater for. Until then, we'll have to either stick with a custom loop, or mod one of them to fit on the card.

That is insanely expensive just for a cooler that is purely extra as most modern GPUs come with very good coolers as stock.
