Post Corsair Hydro Series CPU Cooler



Anyone got a Corsair Hydro, tried one? Looks nice and a new way of cooling. I'm thinking of getting a Corsair A50 myself, since this Hydro might be a bit too extreme for what I want.

I have one - As do several member on this board. For the people that hate it, they hate it because it's "crappy water cooling", which it isn't. It's an average priced high end air cooler, basically.

Idle on my i7 930 I get around 20c and with load I don't go over 38c.

Yeah, I noticed it was air cooled and using the back case fan vent. Seems like a really good idea and looks neat in the case as well.

Ya it's a FANTASTIC cooler. I love it. As does everyone else on here that uses it. Granted, temps are also contributed to room temp but I'm in my basement where it's always really cool.

You won't find a better high end air cooler, IMO.

I was thinking about getting one but I don't know how it compares to my U12P.

Would the H60 or H70 perform significantly better? Radiator sizes don't look different enough to matter...

The risk of watercooling with worst performance than air.
