Packaging & Contents
Corsair's Hydro Series H110 CPU cooler comes in a rather large box that measures roughly 35 cm in length, 15 cm in width, and 21 cm in height. The box has, as one would expect, a lot of relevant information on the cooler. The side of the box lists some of the features of the Corsair Hydro Series H110. These include 140 mm fans for lower noise and superior cooling and low evaporation rubber tubing, to name a few. The back of the box lists the cooler's performance in comparison to the stock Intel cooler, with both of them on the i7 3770K. It also lists socket compatibility for a wide range of Intel and AMD products.
One of the sides lists the Corsair Hydro Series H110 radiator's dimensions and all the pertinent information about the fans. The opposite side notes that it was designed for cases with mounting points for 280 mm radiators, so make sure your case can accommodate the product first.
Upon opening the box, I found the instructions neatly on top. The pump and tubing were, of course, in a plastic bag, with the pump's coldplate protected by a plastic cover. The radiator was placed in a cardboard sleeve for protection, with the fans situated side by side in the cardboard tray.
After removing the Corsair Hydro Series H110 from its plastic wrappings and cardboard tray, I found the mounting hardware tucked away safely inside a plastic bag. The pump and radiator were safe and sound. Good packaging really does go a long way.
Upon emptying the contents of the plastic bag, it is easy to see that everything needed to mount the cooler has been included. However, only eight fan screws have been provided, which means that you will need to get another set of screws if you wish to use a push-pull setup. The screws users will need to install another set of fans are 6/32 UNC, with 1.25 inches or 3.175 cm. Still, users will find that everything they need to install the Corsair Hydro Series H110 on nearly every current Intel or AMD socket has been included.
