Corsair's Hydro Series CPU coolers are a popular choice to keep any number of processors from going up in flames, and now it can add video cards to the mix. The company recently introduced the Hydro Series HG10 GPU cooling bracket, which allows for one of the Hydro coolers to be adapted for a video card. The HG10 replaces the stock cooler on reference video cards, and it covers not just the GPU, but also the VRM and VRAM. Corsair says the new HG10 can help reduce noise by a significant amount, and drop temperatures as much as 50 °C on the GPU and 25 °C on the VRM/VRAM. Installation is promised to be painless, as all that's required is a screwdriver to swap the stock cooler for the HG10. The stock cooler's radial fan gets reused in the HG10, so there won't be any concern about lack of airflow over the memory and power circuitry.

Introduced alongside the HG10 are the new Air Series LED SP120 and SP140 static pressure fans. These fans come with either red, blue, green, purple, or white LED lighting; and feature ultra-wide, custom-molded fan blades to generate high static pressure that is perfect for heat sinks and watercooling radiators.

The Corsair Hydro Series HG10 GPU cooling bracket arrives this month for $39.99, and will fit the AMD R9 290/290X video cards. An NVIDIA model for the GeForce GTX Titan, 780 Ti, 780, and 770, is set to arrive later this year, as well as one for more AMD cards. The Air Series LED SP120 and SP140 fans are priced at $12.99 for the SP120 and $15.99 for the SP140, and should now be available.
