    Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the Hydro Series H40 and Hydro Series H70 CORE liquid CPU coolers.

    The Hydro Series H40 is Corsair's new entry-level liquid CPU cooler and is designed to provide effective and reliable liquid cooling at a price that's affordable for mainstream computer users. Like all Corsair Hydro Series liquid CPU coolers, the H40 is a self contained, closed-loop system that comes pre-filled and never needs refilling. It works with most modern AMD and Intel sockets, and comes with an illustrated quick start guide to make installation easy even for CPU cooling novices.

    The Hydro Series H70 CORE is based on Corsair's award-winning Hydro Series H70 and is provided without the fans so users can personalize their cooling performance. It is aimed at experienced PC performance enthusiasts who already have 120mm fans, or who otherwise wish to supply their own fans. The H70 CORE includes a 38mm double thick radiator for superior cooling potential.

    "The Hydro Series helped revolutionize the liquid CPU cooling industry by providing the power of liquid cooling in self-contained, maintenance-free systems," said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager of the Components Business Unit at Corsair. "As CPUs continue to get faster and hotter, liquid CPU cooling is going mainstream and the Hydro Series H40 is an excellent choice for adding liquid CPU cooling to basic desktop PCs. The Hydro Series H70 CORE was developed to meet the needs of customers who'd like to save money by purchasing a high-performance liquid CPU cooler and making use of the fans that they already have."

    The H40 and H70 CORE will be available in October from authorized Corsair retailers and etailers worldwide. The Hydro Series H40 has an MSRP in the United States of $59 USD, and the Hydro Series H70 CORE has an MSRP in the United States of $89 USD.

    Is this [​IMG] an aluminum base or nickle plated copper? I assume it is aluminum due to being the entry level model but i can't even remember the last time i saw an aluminum water block.... Although i may just not be paying enough attention :laugh:

    Good to know corsair is listening to what people want (i assume?), i have no clue how many times i have seen people say they wish they could get one without the corsair fans as they either have their own better ones spare or would want to buy their own to fit their needs.

    How does the H70 compare to the Antec Kuhler 920? Are they the same Asetek unit?

    I think the Corsair coolers are done by CoolIt now, not Asetek.
    And they're all pretty similar in terms of performance, anyway. Only so much you can do with a single rad and an enclosed loop.

    Nice to see them selling without fans. Hopefully, they are priced to match.
    @bear jesus It could be aluminum to cut down on costs. Don't know though.
    bear jesus says thanks.

    they all look.. the same.. h50, h70, and h100 are pretty much the base. Everyting else from the looks of it is just permutation / mix of the pump, block, and rad.

    Warranty:
    H60/H80/H100 - 5 years.
    H40/H70 - 2 years.

    What gives? :confused:
    All in all, those seem like good cooling parts. Good performers. Although I would only use the the H40 for CPUs up to 125W TDP.

    Expensive junk.

    But marketed well enough it will sell even if there are better,cheaper, quieter options.

    glad they decided to manufacture these to be align with fans that are industry standard in size

    I had to drill out the holes on my noctua fans in order to barely fit on my H100

    I guess Corsair changed the warranty to match the OEMs quality. It seems all the CoolIT models are getting 5 years while the Asetek models are getting 2.

    I knew either Antec or Corsair was going to release one of these with an aluminum block. I saw an Asetek 510LC being sold on Anandtech a while back for dirt cheap so I looked it up on the manufacturer's website and found it.
    CyberDruid, _JP_ and sneekypeet say thanks.

    Is that why Coolit comes with a 5 year warranty, and the Asetek units come with 2?

    Many high end air coolers have similar results, or you do some custom WC system or do not buy these because they have no real advantage.

    The advantage over Air cooling is lower system temps.

    Means potentially higher GPU and ram overclocking as the heat is exhausted directly out of the case.


    But yeah, I prefer high end AIR or full blown water cooling too :laugh:

    No. While I won't comment on the complete lack of logic in his claim, I will point out that the H70 has a much thicker radiator than the H40.

    I fail to see your logic. You're telling me I shouldn't buy these AIO liquid coolers because high-end air heatsinks, which are comparable in cost, perform similar?

    Yes they are similar at the end.

    The fact is that, or you do at 100% or just leave, because the advantage is minimal even if the expenditure is similar to high end air heatsinks ... A custom kit costs more but i assure you it's worth all the money spent.


    In these kits, the problem is the length of the circuit that should make the water is simply too short the water does not have time to cool down.
