CORSAIR Announces Hydro X Series DIY Liquid Cooling Hardware

CORSAIR , a world leader in PC gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today announced the launch of the highly-anticipated CORSAIR Hydro X Series, a complete line of custom cooling parts offering PC enthusiasts a new standard of hardware to build the world's most powerful and stunning systems. From CPU and graphics card water blocks to a pump/reservoir, fittings, tubing, radiators, and coolant, the Hydro X Series offers everything you need to build a spectacular custom cooling loop that lowers system temperatures and improves performance, complete with vivid RGB lighting.

Rigorously tested and validated to ensure the utmost reliability and stability, the Hydro X Series has been meticulously designed to work best alongside the massive range of CORSAIR cases and cooling components, fully integrated with CORSAIR iCUE software for automated fan and pump speed control and complete lighting customization.
The Hydro X Series cools any modern desktop CPU using the lineup of XC7 and XC9 RGB water blocks. A nickel-plated copper cold plate, more than 70 high-efficiency micro-cooling fins, and pre-applied thermal material ensure powerful cooling performance, with 16 individually addressable RGB LEDs and a transparent flow chamber to show off your style.

The XG7 RGB range of graphics card water blocks fit a wide variety of popular graphics cards, including NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-Series graphics cards. XG7 blocks are total conversion solutions designed to completely augment the looks and performance of the graphics card, with an included full-length aluminum backplate and integrated RGB lighting. Pre-applied thermal material and thermal pads make installation quick and easy.

The XD5 RGB Pump/Reservoir Combo delivers a strong flow for your loop thanks to its D5 pump, with a 330ml reservoir and an integrated fillport. Ten top-mounted RGB LEDs light up the reservoir, and an included temperature sensor provides real-time coolant temperatures from inside your loop.

All the remaining parts to complete your custom cooling system are available from the Hydro X Series: copper-core radiators from 120mm up to 480mm, soft and hardline tubing, a wide range of fittings with a variety of angled adapters to accommodate all kinds of tubing runs, and several vibrant colors of extensively tested coolant. The Hydro X Series is designed to fit perfectly in a wide range of CORSAIR cases, and thanks to standard G1/4" fittings, is compatible with the vast majority of existing custom cooling parts available today.

The core Hydro X Series components feature vivid, integrated RGB LED lighting to further accent your system, controllable with a CORSAIR iCUE RGB lighting controller and CORSAIR iCUE software. iCUE connects all your compatible CORSAIR components and peripherals together in a single interface, allowing you to create synchronized lighting effects across your entire system or experience immersive integrated lighting with compatible games.

The Hydro X Series is not just about pushing performance and customization, but also opening the world of custom PC cooling to more enthusiasts than ever before. Building a custom cooling system has long been considered a project for only the most dedicated builders. With pre-applied thermal material and thermal pads, easy-to-follow video installation tutorials, and dedicated 24/7 customer service, the Hydro X Series is the most streamlined and accessible path for both beginners and experts to enjoy the lower system temperatures and amazing aesthetics of a custom cooling system.

To easily determine exactly which parts you'll need for your specific build, the online custom cooling configurator is now on the CORSAIR website. By simply entering your key hardware components into the configurator, it will compile a full list of the specific Hydro X Series parts needed for a custom cooling loop tailored to your PC. The parts list can also be modified based on other preferences, such as overclocking. Afterwards, the configurator can automatically populate your cart with your personalized list of parts, for a quick and easy shopping experience.

The Hydro X Series delivers a complete range of high-quality parts to build an amazing custom cooling system, while removing many of the complexities in the process. For those who want to take their PC build to new heights of performance and style, the Hydro X Series puts custom cooling firmly within reach.

Availability
The CORSAIR Hydro X Series is available immediately from the CORSAIR webstore, and will be available in the coming weeks from the CORSAIR worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors.

Pump is £150 Has a in loop temp sensor too :)
Water blocks start at £69 for CPU and £134 for GPU
360 xr5 radiator is a ver good £69 and the XR7 is £104
Fittings start at £12.99 Tubing is £12.99 for soft and £17.99 for hard

This stuff looks very good, I think Corsair is going to sell a Sh*t ton of it.

The GPU block water flow pipes are reversed. OUT/IN IMHO.

I'm not seeing the issue with the design.

Pump -> GPU -> CPU -> radiators.

Looks fine to me.

This stuff is just too tempting, but I'd better steady up since I've only just fitted the Platinum RGB.
It does look ultra sexy.

I tried out the their Configuration tool. It doesn't look like they can be purchased separately. The generic fittings and RGBs don't look so appealing to me...

No jetplate to force flow down the center of the die first, so I don't think it matters. In either direction it'll be going over one half of the VRM section before the core.

Apparently their rads are from hardwarelabs so that's VERY good news.

They work with Bitspower on the fittings, according to Linus at the show in Taiwan?

I think you can. I added just a pump to cart went to checkout and it seemed fine.

Its a good idea but the LL fans are really bad in air flow, there great looking but just really bad performance.

No jetplate is bad news in the first place. I woupd not invest.

Then don't buy the blocks, there's nothing keeping you from mixing and matching parts. HardwareLabs rads are top of the line and sell out constantly so it's good to have another source. You're kind of mixing context between two unrelated statements I made too.

Definitely, also an idiocy like some rattling flow meter in the block? You are talking about rads, I fail to see who made that GPU block. They have two types of water blocks in the video. The pump uses vintage molex not Sata? I don't even have those in any of my PC's anymore.

They kind of look like alphacool gpu blocks.

So it's like buying Swiftech X3 except you have to put it together and spend more money ?
