Hydro Series H50 Liquid Cooling System from Corsair
Corsair has launched a new CPU cooler today with the introduction of the Hydro Series H50 designed to fit Intel and AMD processors. The result of working with liquid-cooling system manufacturer ASEtek, the Hydro H50 is a self contained, closed-loop system consisting of a cooper cooling plate with integrated pump connected to a 120mm radiator. The aluminum radiator is cooled by a 1700RPM low-noise fan with the entire unit connected by low permeability tubing.
Corsair claims that in tests performed in its own labs, the unit cooled an Intel Core i7-965 processor overclocked to 3.46GHz with a vcore of 1.3V 30% better than stock cooling and over 10% better than a high-performance air cooler, achieving idle temperatures of 38.375C and full loads temperatures of 55.85C. The unit ships with brackets to fit Intel LGA775 and LGA1366 boards and brackets for AMD AM2/AM3 socket boards can be ordered directly from Corsair but you'll have to pay shipping. Backed by a two-year warranty, the H50 will be available by the end of June but Corsair didn't disclose pricing.
