    Corsair, designer of high-performance PC hardware components, today announced the Hydro Series H110 and H90 liquid CPU coolers. With huge radiator cooling surfaces areas of 280 mm and 140 mm respectively and specially designed 140 mm low-speed, high static pressure fans, the new coolers deliver superior CPU cooling and quieter operation than smaller 120 mm designs.

    The Hydro Series H110 is a low-noise, high-performance liquid CPU cooler with a double-length 280 mm by 140 mm radiator. The H110 radiator's large surface area provides more contact room for heat dissipation and for side-by-side mounting of dual fans. Each fan is a specially-designed low-speed 140 mm static pressure fan, which moves much more air per decibel of noise than 120 mm fans. Combined, the larger radiators and lower fan-speeds produce better performance with much lower noise levels than smaller 120 mm dual-fan coolers. The H110 fits cases with dual 140 mm top fan mounts and 20 mm screw spacing.

    The Hydro Series H90, like the H110, is a low-noise, high-performance liquid CPU cooler, but with a more compact square 140 mm radiator and a single 140 mm static pressure fan. The large radiator and spacious surface area combined with lower fan-speeds produce better performance than smaller 120 mm single fan coolers with lower noise. The H90 is compatible with many cases with a rear or top 140 mm fan mount.

    The Hydro Series H110 and H90 liquid coolers feature an enhanced copper cold plate with soaks up heat more efficiently than previous generation designs. Both coolers are compatible with most modern CPU platforms including AMD AM2, AM3, AM3+, FM2 and FM1 and Intel LGA 1155, LGA 1156, LGA 1366, and LGA 2011.

    "Many PC enthusiasts choose liquid cooling for its extreme cooling efficiency and quiet operation," said Thi La, Senior VP and GM of Memory and Enthusiast Component Products at Corsair. "To take liquid cooling the next level, we super-sized the Hydro Series H110 and H90, providing users our best cooling-to-noise ratio ever."

    Pricing and Availability
    The Corsair Hydro Series H110 and Hydro Series H90 liquid coolers are immediately available from Corsair's worldwide network of resellers and distributors. Suggested retail prices in the United States are $129.99 for the H110 and $99.99 for the H90.
    nt300, KissSh0t and Anth0789 say thanks.

    They are iterating their products pretty rapidly considering that the amount of power needed to be dissipated has not increased much.

    Shouldn't the H90 be double thickness?

    Just doing this because they don't want to be left behind by NZXT with their Kraken X40 and X60. This is nothing new, just a normal H100 and H80 with a larger radiator slapped on. Probably still the same pump.
    IMHO I would go with the kraken, cause it glows different colours, and has the control software.

    I have a Corsair H80i and honestly I would never buy another Corsair closed loop water cooler, my problems with it is that it's extremely low quality, after screwing and unscrewing the radiator a couple of times some of the screw holes on it are basically stripped, I can only use 2 screws on one side of it, the cpu bracket is very poorly thought out, it doesn't account for different motherboard thickness and it doesn't put enough pressure on the CPU, I had to use rubber washers to be able to install it properly, the package was missing 4 metal screw washers (which seems to be a common issue), for some reason corsair link doesn't work for me anymore, I guess the IC for that died (the Corsaor Logo LED doesn't show either) and there are many people with the same issue if you look at the Corsair forums, and in the end for what? Something that cools moderately better than a CM Hyper 212+; to get proper cooling out of this thing you need a pair of turbines on the radiator, if you want a decent silent solution your only choice are some PWM fans, like Noctua or Be Quiet, but you won't get the best performance with those, and the H80i will have the same cooling ability as a mid-higher range CPU cooler.
    I would RMA my cooler, but after reading how many people have done that and have still gotten broken parts, and since the pump still works, I'll just stay with it and get pissed every time I think about it.
    claylomax and erixx say thanks.

    Hmm. Getting the H110 might finally allow me to cool my cpu with an ultra quiet fixed fan speed, but then I run the risk of introducing a new annoying noise into my system. Took a month for my H60 pump to stop making a ball bearing sort of grinding noise. Most AIO coolers have this problem if your room and pc is silent it will drive you nuts. And it's not encouraging these are asetek pumps since they do it the worst.

    Also I want to see this thing for real to be sure they didn't fuck up like NZXT with that cable squid crap.

    Dont bother, wait for the Swiftech H220 for $140US. Actual watercooling loop in a CLC style with expansion.

    You did see the test they did right? It's not miles ahead like you'd expect. The difference is close to the difference between the X60 and H100. A 280 rad makes all the difference and allows me to use my current slow speed fans. Now if Swiftech does a 280 rad variant that would change things.

    Take off the rad, sell it, put your own 280 on :)
    Thats what the Swiftech is made for.

    Best cooler I have ever owned to be honest, had no issues at all. If you take into account that the H80i pretty much cools as well as the old H100 then for me thats good value.

    Yes they are coming with a 360 and 280 version. Like ALMOSTunseen said, take off rad, add you own or add it current setup.
    The X60 is exactly the same as H110. There is no difference. With slow speed fans, wont help if the rad is using a higher FPI. Swiftech is 12-14FPI, while the X60/H110 is 17-19FPI. That difference can be a big one.

    If I didn't have those issues, I think I would be pleased with it too. It has a very good pump, it's pretty silent, I can only hear it when my system is idle and by getting my ear close to the case, with two BeQuiet! Shadow Wings PWM fans on it it's very silent and cools reasonably well, and I especially like the fact that it's not a big hunk of metal on the motherboard (since I have a mini ITX mobo). I also don't see the point of the Corsair Link software, the application is pretty resource heavy and does about the same thing HWInfo64 does, I think they could have made it cheaper if they just made a H75 version without the Link nonsense and just put the bare minimum. The included fan controller isn't that good either, since it starts hissing at low RPM, and the SP120L fans aren't bad, but they're turbines at high speed and at low speeds are way noisier than the BeQuiet fans I replaced them with.
    It's not all bad in the end, but I think Corsair could have done a much better job of Quality Control.

    I must have been looking at other tests, as the Swiftech spanked the two other coolers it went up against, even with gpus in the loop. And that's not even mentioning that it was miles quieter, like dead silent.

    You do know that it was not a real test. Re-watch the video again. It was a basic setup, where they used auto OC button and set the fans to 1400RPM Silent mode in the software of each company.
    This is to see how a novice would set it up easily for a quick OC and temps control in quiet setup.

    TPU you said that it uses 20mm spacing, which incorrect. The spacing is 15mm, same as the NZXT X60. Which is what the H110 rad is based off.

    corsair's close loop water cooling products are decent and they're able to cool your processor down respectable. i have experience with corsair product especially with H100, it's an amazing product but unfortunately after around 8 months my H100 coolant got leaked and rendering it useless :eek:

    I had the H60 and usually the pump give up and start making annoying tickle noise.
