    Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced an updated version of the award-winning Hydro Series H60 liquid CPU cooler, and the new Hydro Series H55 liquid CPU cooler.

    The Hydro Series H55 is an update to the hugely respected Hydro Series H50, and is based on the latest, 4th generation cold-plate design. The updated version of the Hydro Series H60 takes advantage of the latest cold plate, manifold and fan technology to further increase performance and reduce noise levels.

    "The Hydro Series H50 and H60 have a hard-won reputation for delivering effective, reliable, and quiet CPU cooling," said Thi La, Senior VP & GM of Memory and Enthusiast Component Products at Corsair. "These new and improved versions demonstrate Corsair's commitment to providing our customers with the latest and best integrated liquid cooling technology."

    In addition to the new cold plate and manifold design, the Hydro Series H60 also utilizes larger diameter tubing, which increases the coolant flow rate and performance. The new composite rubber tubing makes installation easier, but retains the low-evaporation rates of the older, more rigid tubing, guaranteeing a long lifetime. The Hydro Series H60 also introduces a new magnetic mounting bracket, which makes it simple to select the correct motherboard socket format.

    H60 Includes Fan Based on Award Winning Air Series SP120

    A high-quality fan designed specifically to move air through the fins of a liquid cooling radiator is an essential part of any liquid cooling system. The new H60 includes a 120 mm fan based on the award-winning Air Series SP120. This utilizes a motor that has been specially tuned for high torque, ensuring outstanding static pressure, and consistently high performance at low noise levels.

    The Hydro Series H55 is designed to provide a simple and effective upgrade from a basic CPU air cooler. The 4th generation cold plate design, and high static-pressure, low noise 120 mm fan provides great performance, while the tool-free mounting bracket and low-permeability rubber tubing makes installation simple.

    Both the Hydro Series H55 and Hydro Series H60 CPU coolers are compatible with most cases that feature a rear 120 mm fan mount. Both support motherboards based on the Intel LGA115x/1366/2011, and AMD AM2/AM3/FM1 sockets, and are backed by a five year limited warranty.

    Pricing and Availability

    The Corsair Hydro Series H60 is available immediately from Corsair's worldwide network of resellers and distributors, at a price of $79.99 in the United States.

    I do like the square design and would love to see how it has improved over their previous gen.

    SP120 (static pressure) to be exact

    looks like H55 fan pulls through the rad.. but not sure why (?!)..
    from Corsair site:
    hmmm..

    In single fan arrangements without a shroud, it doesn't make a huge difference. Some people prefer push, some pull.

    Push is the better, push pull is a bit better but F....ing noisy

    On systems this small, it makes minimal difference. Not enough to really change anything. Fan characteristics are more important on these systems.

    Now, add a shroud, and pull is better in a lot of instances. Depends on the airflow characteristics of the rad. My high fin count, restrictive airflow, old-school GTX360 prefers push, my MCR320 prefers pull.

    Adding push/pull improves both as much if not more than a shroud and is roughly the same thickness.

    Granted, but also requires you to purchase more fans.

    Not if they were smart like thermaltake and include an extra fan plus mounting screws :)

    I like how they built two just for the images. There is no way that the tubes can go 360 degrees on the block/pump to be able to get the unit to sit like that....lol

    All the corsair liquid coolers I've installed all recommend that the fan be arranged to pull cool air in through the radiator, no exhaust hot air out.

    Why not? The fitting at the pump rotate 360 degrees.

    Yes, but they can both be rotated outward to twist the tubes around in the orientation that they are in the pictures.

    Always twisted the tubes funny, those look built specifically for images to me is all. Maybe they got lucky and the goofy bend left in the hose is behind the head unit.

    The cooler in the first image even uses thicker tubing than the standard Hydro units, and that would make twisting it even harder IMO.

    I honestly don't know what you are getting on about the tubes are facing the same way as the ones on my H70.

    Look at the first image, the fittings are facing the CPU, not the sides or the top;)

    Whenever I tried that for images, it either looked bad with the goofy looking twisted hose, or the kink would force the block to fall over. Hence why I mentioned that I thought it was built (possibly empty) just for imaging purposes.

    I have no complaints with the new H60 design though I worry about the price never reaching that $60 free shipping spot the old one did.

    You just have to flip the rad through in between the tubes to remove the wind up.

    They changed the tubes also, they are smooth now. I use an H60 now and might just buy a new one just for the looks of the new tubes.
