New Closed Loop Cooler From Corsair
Corsair has revealed its latest addition to the ever expanding Hydro Series closed loop CPU coolers. This new cooler, the H105, should allow for even better cooling than its predecessors. This is due to the increased radiator thickness, which increases the total surface area to allow for even greater heat dissipation. The new radiator is 38 mm thick compared to the H100's 27 mm. George Makris, Product Manager for Cases and Cooling at Corsair, explains this choice: "For 240mm radiators, we’ve had a lot of requests for a thicker version with more surface area to improve cooling performance." The cooler will come with two SP120L PWM 120 mm fans. These fans run from 800-2700 RPM, has a maximum noise level of 37.7 dB, and can push up to 73 CFM. The fan speed can be managed in the BIOS with no mention of Corsair's Link software being able to do it.
As for mounting, the cooler uses Corsair’s new tool-free CPU mounting block, which should make it much easier to install the cooler, and it is available for a wide range of Intel and AMD sockets. It also features kink-resistant rubber tubes, and a high-quality on-board ceramic-bearing pump. The cooling block is made of copper to ensure fast heat transfer.
If aesthetics is your thing, then Corsair has got your back too with an LED backlight logo on the CPU block and a replaceable color ring, so the cooler can match any rig no matter the color theme.
The MSRP is $119.99 in the United States, and it is available now from Corsair's website. Other distributors should have it available some time in January.
