    A Swedish online store early-listed two of Corsair's unheard of upcoming CPU coolers in the Hydro series, the Hydro H80 and Hydro H100. The Hydro series includes pre-assembled, closed-loop CPU water-cooling kits that are relatively inexpensive compared to full-fledged custom-made loops. Corsair sources these kits from OEMs such as CoolIT and Asetek. Both new models are positioned above the existing single-fan slim H50, single-fan bigger radiator H60, and double-fan (push-pull) bigger radiator H70.

    The Hydro H80 uses a thick 120x120 mm area radiator that's roughly as big as that of the H70, but has a bigger block unit, probably amounting to higher water flow. The block unit also appears to have a control knob. The Hydro H100, on the other hand, uses a large 240x120 mm area radiator that can hold two 120 mm fans on either sides, but comes with two fans. It seems like H100 has the same exact block unit as the H80, with its control knob. The Hydro H100 is listed at 1,075 Swedish Krona (US $172.5), while the Hydro H80 is listed at 965 Krona ($154).

    These will probably be the first iteration to really pull ahead of air coolers, but I'm left wondering why bother. My H70 and many coolers aren't challenged by 1155 procs, and 2011 is going to be a die shrink so it might run even cooler. Paying over $100 for no increase in overclocking headroom seems like a waste when you'd be just as well off spending half that.

    It's not so much in gaining an OC headroom but having it cool at very high clocks. Plus these usually take up less space on CPU socket alone which might be better for some (for my system if i coudl fit the radiator on the grill...).

    Can't wait to see how the H100 performs, it will fit perfectly in my case.

    The square block ones are coolit, just like the H60.

    H100 looks awesome, but the price is too damn high! I think H80 is going to suffer a pricing fail, judging by initial looks.

    and you decided this how?

    some people live in hot areas where during the summer even the best water coolers will be challenged by rather simple tasks.

    If it's so damn hot why are you wasting your money on a tricked out rig? Get yourself a friggin' AC.

    I see only H100 worth and sure if the price drop to 150, the H80 will come with a bit improve in performace over H70.

    Hmm, H100 looks nice, but price is getting pretty high . . . Might as well just do a custom loop.

    Those are both prices in Sweden, on a not yet released product. The actual retail price will likely be about $30 to $50 less. Which will likely mean that from time to time you'll be able to get the Hydro H100 for around $100 if you catch a good sale.

    Those look good, especially he H100, and I'm glad they are coming out... even though I bought a H60 (on sale for under $50) two weeks ago.

    no they will not pull ahead of air coolers. There are thinner single fan air coolers that are quieter and take up way less room that will preform better. Its one of those or water cooling. There is no real difference. Plus the thresholds for heat are higher fanned heat-sinks when OCing. After a curtain temp the they stop being "proactive" Its full on water or a good heat sink.

    The only other reason i see pro wise is relocation of cooling apparatus for ram with tall fins. But if you are buying that kind of ram then your ocing... and if you are doing that you need a heat-sink or water.

    If its worth anything I've had 2 of these H7 and another after that that didn't perform much better than the h70.. I would not trade my heat sink for a 2 fanned version of that. Its cool that there are alternatives but they are not close enough for the money and don't preform well for slightly rational to serious long term overclocks

    Well, my all-in-one does pretty good, but it's got some low-power TECs on it :laugh:

    There's hardly a difference between the H70 and top air right now. It's not a really big leap of faith to assume one of these gens they're going to break out ahead. The basic design certainly has the potential for it, they just have to stop sucking at the implementation. This could certainly be it.
