    Our friends at HEXUS.net today posted pictures of Corsair's latest watercooling solution for computer processors. The Corsair Hydro H50 is essentially an Asetek LCLC OEM unit rebranded and sold under the Corsair trademark, but with one change - redesigned copper cold plate. The system itegrates the pump in the waterblock and adds a 120 mm radiator to the loop to cool the circulating water. Corsair will ship the system completely assembled, and ready to use for 50,000 hours without maintenance. Thanks to the redesigned base of the waterblock, Hydro H50 is compatible with Intel LGA775 and LGA1366 sockets. Owners of Socket AM2 and AM3 machines can ask for a free mounting bracket directly from Corsair. The cooler is expected to arrive later this month and cost around $82.

    For the price it looks good but a really good air cooler will prob be cheaper, Cant say nothing about the cooling performance yet....But looks good and from corsair quality has to be there.

    I wonder if it's gonna be better than a high-end air cooler. If so, i might pick this up.

    I'd like to see this compared with something like a Tuniq Tower 120. I'd also like to see what the results for the noise level on that fan are. If they are a bit high (for someone looking for silent cooling) then don't forget the price of an extra fan in the mix.

    If this offers a large benefit over a cooler like the tt120 then I might be getting it. I mean, I've got the silent high flow fan taken care of, and I definitely see myself upgrading to LGA1366 someday, so why not?

    I just wonder if it is all copper or if they mixed aluminum in there as well. Galvanic corrosion FTW... That single 120 rad won't be enough to cool an overclocked i7 very well either. But, this would go nice with my server that is only an E2140.

    Meh, radiator is too small to handle anything hotter than a stock dual core.

    And then factor in that this kit is non expandable by design so you'll never be able to swap things out for better parts.

    The Swiftech all in one kit is MUCH better in terms of quality, expandability, and design.

    not necessarily true. For the price I think Corsair knows what they are doing. In fact, my D4 Laing pump is made by corsair. The cooler should do well for mid clocks on AMD and Core and I5/I7s. I would not expect huge gains, unless you could put the cooler on another rad.

    I have the Asetek and I can keep a 24/7 over clock of 4.2GHZ at 1.375 VOLTS...I do at times hit low 80's but only things like WPrime Benchmark will get me into the 80's......Its an okay cooler and the performance greatly depends on ambient temps.

    Innovative but expensive... Ive tried something like this before, you have to fight just to get sub air temps because the loop is so small, it heats up really quick.

    The Corsair would be good for me now because I have a duel core cpu, but I am saving up for a Phenom II and I know this wont cut it. I have seen this Swiftech kit before and was interested in it. But I've been hearing your better off buying all parts separate for the best quality and results. Water cooling is just so expensive so the kits don't seem like a bad option. I know when it comes to WC'ing "getting what you pay for" can result in Serious consequences:(

    I'm 99.9% sure this will suck. The rad is really the biggest key to a WC system, and one this small will never handle an overclocked i7. Best you can expect is on par with a decent air cooler, but certainly worse than a true...

    No, Corsair did not make that pump, knowing the story behind those I can tell you that these were an accidental purchase from Laing, the maker of all D4, D5 and DDC pumps.

    They meant to buy DDC's for their older external water cooling kits but someone screwed something up along the line and they recieved an entire shipment of D4's instead. When this individual realized the screwup the pumps were relegated to a corner of a warehouse and forgotten.

    A few months ago Corsair contacted Petras and sold the (useless for them) pumps to him at a nice price.

    That's where those pumps came from, and no Corsair did not make them, they just had their name printed on the label.

    Continuing, saying they know what they're doing is also pretty silly IMHO, their first venture into water cooling used a primitive copper water block and an aluminum radiator which is never a smart idea.

    Feel free to go buy it, but don't come crying to me about it's performance when you discover it's a letdown.

    I was very tempted by the North Q Siberian Tiger II (same unit as this), but they have a dual rad.

    If Corsair release the dual rad version with their improved block and its priced right, ill be all over this! :D

    So if this is the same thing as the asetek kit then can someone find some reviews of that to get a general idea as to what we can expect from this thing?

    Also, can someone help me find something like this? I noticed this Masscool all in one water cooler - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835150097. Does anyone have any suggestions for quick and easy liquid cooling like this? Anyone own this masscool thing?

    Does it cool as well as a regular water cooling setup?

    The coolit domino works relatively well, it's a single rad and very similar. Got great results from the reviews I read.

    It looks to be very good simple kit. I wouldn't bank on it doing very well in heavy duty OCing, but for stock, or mild oc's it should be better than air. Corsair is one of those companies that keeps putting out good product after good product. I installed their nautilus 500 on my first build then put it on the rig I built for my girlfriend...And after almost 3 years, it is still going strong and is doing what it should be doing; keeping the cpu cooled down.:toast: In my opinion you get what you pay for with Corsair. I don't think this product will be any different.

    I'm really interested to see reviews on this. I've never put much stock in these little stock contained WC setups, but I like me some Corsair products.
