    Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced shipments of the new Hydro Series H60 High-Performance Liquid CPU Cooler. The Hydro Series H60 brings remarkable new technologies to the CPU cooling market at an affordable price point. New features include:
    • A low-profile, light-weight cooling unit that reduces clutter around the CPU
    • A redesigned microchannel cold plate with a new fin design that dramatically increases the surface area of copper available for heat absorption
    • A new split-flow manifold that delivers coolant directly to the center of the cold plate — the warmest area of the CPU — significantly improving cooling efficiency
    • A custom-designed 120mm fan with very high static pressure, which allows for more cold air to be drawn through the radiator to vent heat from the cooling liquid
    • Compatibility with the recently announced Corsair Link system for monitoring and control

    "Corsair brought reliable, easy-to-install liquid CPU cooling systems to the masses with the groundbreaking Hydro Series H50," said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager for Components at Corsair. "With the new H60, Corsair provides a new level of performance, ease of installation, and affordability."

    The Hydro Series H60 is currently shipping to distributors and resellers worldwide and should be available from Corsair-authorized retailers in the Americas, Europe, and Asia in early March. The Hydro Series H60 is available for a US suggested retail price of $79 USD.
    WarEagleAU and Radical_Edward say thanks.

    So is the performance in between the h50 and h70?

    Sounds like the pump and block is better than the H70, the rad will hold it back though. If you felt ambitious you could mod on a double thick rad and have yourself a H80 before anyone else.

    See the size of the microfins? I'd be worried about air pockets because of water surface tension. Or maybe they have additives to combat surface tension like water wetter or something...

    The base finish sucks too

    Looks like the CPU-blocks surface could need some lapping

    AFAIK CoolIt no longer has ties to Asetek.

    so maybe i should go from air to water, but is it safe to run for 24-7 use? or will it expire too soon on it's life time? :(

    Looks like a better mounting system, I might just have to pick one of these up for my rig and put the H50 in Lauren's rig.

    Looks nice,but no way will I switch my H70 double thick radiator and go back to a thinner one..It would have to be one hell of a difference in cooling for an H70 user to want to switch..

    Been running an H50 24x7 for a little over an year now and no issues at all. If you clean the rad every now and then, it performs just a well as the day you bought it.

    The first thing I did when i got my H50 was switch out the Corsair fan for two Yate Loons in pull-push.

    Cant wait for them to break out a dual rad like 2x120 or 2x140 with push pull config.
