Corsair has announced a new liquid cooling bracket for graphics cards, the Hydro Series HG10 N780 Edition.

The bracket allows a Corsair Hydro Series liquid CPU cooler (not included, of course) to be attached to select NVIDIA GeForce cards. What cards are compatible? Reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770, GTX 780, GTX 780 Ti, Titan and Titan Black. (Reference design refers to the board itself, and you will often find aftermarket cooling on reference-based cards in the retail channel. As always, it's best to research your card beforehand!)

The HG10 N780 requires just eight screws to install, and Corsair states that the bracket "when combined with a Corsair Hydro Series CPU liquid cooler" of course, "can reduce the GPU’s temperature by up to 45° C, and works with the GPU’s automatic temperature control (to) lower the speed of its onboard fan for quieter operation".

VRAM and VRMs are also cooled with the bracket, "helping extend the life of the GPU and providing more overclocking headroom".


Specifications:

  • Allows any Corsair Hydro Series CPU cooler to be attached to and cool NVIDIA GeForce GPUs
  • Compatible with reference NVIDIA® GeForce® GTXTM 770, GTX 780, GTX 780 Ti, Titan and Titan Black graphics cards
  • Reduces GPU temperatures by up to 45° C

Corsair has announced their newest Hydro Series all-in-one (AIO) liquid CPU cooler, the H110i GT. This new model has a 140x322 mm radiator and dual 140mm SP140L fans.

Corsair points out the "striking new look with logo inserts on the block and radiator" which add style, but more importantly part of the design changes with the H110i include a new cooling block to make potential performance gains over existing designs an interesting possibility. Certainly the larger radiator surface area and 140mm fans suggest lower noise.

Corsair Link support is also provided to allow "monitoring and customization of built-in logo lighting, fan speed, pump speed". 


Specifications:

  • 140mm x 322mm x 27mm aluminum radiator

CES 2015: MSI AG240 4K Edition Gaming All-in-One

Subject: Systems, Shows and Expos | January 5, 2015 - 03:01 AM |
Tagged: msi, ces 2015, CES, all-in-one, AIO, ag240, 4k

Our review of the MSI AG270 Gaming AIO was pretty eye opening; I really didn't expect to find that kind of gaming capability inside an all-in-one chassis. Building on that success, MSI is preparing for a March release of the AG240 4K Edition, which as the name suggests, includes a 24-in 4K IPS monitor.

Other hardware specifications include a 4th Generation Haswell processor, a yet-to-be-named GTX 900-series mobility GPU from NVIDIA and up to 3x mSATA SSDs running in RAID-0 (MSI sure loves its SuperRAID). The 4K screen itself definitely looked nice though I am curious about the choice to only include a single GPU in a system with that many pixels. You can still play your games at 1080p though should GPU horsepower be a concern.

I'm sure we'll have a review sample sometime this quarter, so stay tuned!

PCPer 10 Days of Christmas: Day 8 - Corsair Hydro Series H100i Liquid CPU Cooler

Subject: General Tech | December 21, 2014 - 11:00 AM |
Tagged: liquid cooler, H100i, h100, cpu cooler, corsair, AIO, 10 days of christmas

Are you still hunting for that perfect gift for the hardware and technology fan in your life? Or maybe you are looking for recommendations to give to your friends and family about what to buy for YOU? Or maybe you just want something new and cool to play with over the break? Welcome to PC Perspective's 10 Days of Christmas where we will suggest a new item each day for you to consider. Enjoy!

 

When the Corsair H100i was released two years ago it was an advancement over the original H100 in both cooling and features. The 240mm all-in-one (AIO) liquid cooler features a thicker radiator than the original H100, along with high performance SP120L fans, Corsair Link technology, and many other changes.

Originally selling for $119.99, the H100i is now selling for as little as $89.99 on Amazon which puts it closer to the middle of the AIO market in price for a very high performance part. And the H100i boasts higher convenience than other AIO liquid coolers, with software control provided by Corsair Link and a magnetic mounting system to help keep things in place during the waterblock installation.

You can check out our Corsair AIO liquid cooler roundup here to see how the H100i stacks up, and if you are looking for a nice upgrade for someone with the space for a 240mm radiator this would make a great gift idea!

If you are having trouble picking out a gift for a loved one, consider buying an Amazon.com gift card! Amazon has basically every product on the planet for your gift recipient to order and purchasing gift cards through these links directly sponsors and supports PC Perspective! And hey, if you were to buy gift cards for yourself to do your own Amazon-based Christmas shopping...that wouldn't exactly be a bad thing for us either! ;)

Introduction and Specifications

Several weeks ago, during an episode of the PC Perspective Podcast, we talked about a new all-in-one machine from MSI with a focus on gaming. Featuring a quad-core Intel Haswell processor and a GeForce GTX 980M GPU, the MSI AG270 2QE takes the best available hardware for mobile gaming and stuffs them into a machine with an integrated 1080p touch screen. The result is likely to be the most potent gaming AIO that you will find available; it should be more than capable of tackling modern games at the integrated panel's 1920x1080 resolution.

IMG_0611.JPG

A gaming all-in-one is an interesting idea - a cross between the typical gaming desktop and a gaming laptop, an AIO splits the difference in a couple of interesting ways. It's more portable than a desktop and monitor combination for sure, but definitely heavier and bulkier than MSI's own GT72 for example. The AG270 offers a much larger screen (at 1080p) than any gaming notebook on its own, which improves the overall gaming experience without the need for additional hardware. While not ideal, it is totally feasible to take the AG270 with you to a neighbor's house for some LAN party action.

So what do you get with the MSI AG270 2QE, and more specifically, with the 037US kit we are reviewing today? Let's find out.

Another look at the Corsair H75

[H]ard|OCP are returning to several of the CPU coolers that they have reviewed over the past year to provide a more up to date and accurate comparison of their current performance.  They have deployed a new testbench and so there are a few coolers that were tested on older hardware and so the performance they observed does not refer to current hardware.  In order to give you an informed opinion on the current contenders for your cash they have replicated their Corsair Hydro H75 with comparison charts that show the performance of various coolers all on the same hardware and with current pricing.  If you are already familiar with the H75 then you can jump to the last page for the overall results and price to performance measurements, those who did not read their initial review should take the time to read through the full review.

"Corsair has been in the liquid CPU cooling game for over 10 years now. As sealed system liquid CPU coolers have become the norm among hardware enthusiasts, the competition has gotten stiff to say the least. Another thing that has changed over the years is that many DIYers are going to smaller cases for their systems."

Revisiting an old favourite, Corsair's H60 is still going strong

Subject: Cases and Cooling | November 25, 2014 - 12:57 PM |
Tagged: corsair, h60, AIO, water cooler

It is somewhat surprising to realize that the Corsair H60 has not been updated since 2013 and even more surprising that it remains relevant even after what equates to a huge slice of time in the component industry.  It retails for $60 and is compatible with every modern AMD and Intel socket and thanks to its compact design it can fit in smaller systems that the competitions larger coolers cannot.  The H60 now falls towards the middle of [H]ard|OCP's performance charts with larger coolers providing a better result but only in systems which they can fit into and also commanding a much higher price than the H60. It may no longer be at the top of the cooler rankings but when you look at the price to performance and flexibility the H60 remains a viable choice for those shopping for an aftermarket cooler.

"Today we are re-reviewing an older All-in-One CPU from Corsair that is surely a stalwart in the CPU cooling industry. The H60 AIO CPU cooler is a cost effective choice for those enthusiasts looking for a good solution at a good price. The redesigned H60 has been in the market place for 2 years now, which is saying something if it is still competitive."

Enermax goes big with the Liqtech 240 AIO cooler

Subject: Cases and Cooling | August 6, 2014 - 07:19 PM |
Tagged: AIO, enermax, Liqtech 240

As you can see in the picture the radiator on the Enermax Liqtech 240 is not small, at 273mm x 27mm x 120mm you should ensure that it is compatible with your case or be willing to dig out the dremel to mod said enclosure.  The large fans run almost silently at lower temperatures and even when going full out this AIO cooler really does not produce a lot of noise.  As to its performance, [H]ard|OCP found it to be significantly better than the smaller 120 version though the price is higher than some of the competition however for some the quiet performance will be worth the price.  Check the full review here.

1404089484jLZmukEb3r_2_5_l.jpg

"Enermax comes to us today with its Liqtech 240 AIO liquid cooling system for CPUs sporting healthy list of features including; copper cold plate with patented Shunt-Channel-Technology (SCT), seamless contact radiator fins, non-permeable flexible tubing, and a fan control system offering three cooling modes."

Release the all new Kraken X61

Subject: Cases and Cooling | July 11, 2014 - 05:55 PM |
Tagged: Kraken X61, nzxt, AIO, water cooling

NZXT's new Kraken X61 has a new trick up its sleeving, a variable speed pump for those who want as quiet a cooler as possible. [H]ard|OCP found that the design was so efficient and quiet that they really didn't need that feature but for those with sensitive ears it might be a perfect solution.  The performance was on par with many of the other AIO coolers they have tested however the price was higher at ~$140 which may be a deal breaker for some.  The other possible barrier for potential purchasers is the lack of documentation for both the physical installation and the software; experienced users will not be daunted by this but those who are not comfortable with muddling around in advanced settings and mounting coolers may want to print out the online docs before attempting to use the X61.

1404094271nRNYtBCSEy_1_1.jpg

"NZXT is known to many enthusiasts for its computer cases but not so much for its Kraken series of CPU closed loop liquid coolers. After a year of design NZXT has introduced its new Kraken X61. Its claim to fame is that it is the "world's first variable speed liquid cooler." Let's see what this variable RPM pump does for the new Kraken."

Enermax gets wet, the Liqtech 120X all in one liquid cooler

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 6, 2014 - 03:07 PM |
Tagged: enermax, Liqtech 120X, CPU Water Block, AIO

Enermax's AIO watercooler is a bit smaller than some, as the name implies the Liqtech 120X uses a 120mm fan on it's radiator making it easy to fit into most systems.  [H]ard|OCP recommends you approach the installation with great patience as the rubber grommets make attaching the radiator somewhat tricky but they are worth keeping as the dual fans can be quite loud at full speed.  [H] had hoped for performance comparable to the Silverstone Tundra TD03 that this cooler resembles but ended up disappointed with the results.  Hopefully Enermax can refine the design and produce a more impressive Version 2.

"Enermax is most well know to computer hardware enthusiasts for a long standing tradition of building some of the world's best computer power supplies. Enermax comes to us today with its first All-In-One CPU water cooler, AKA, an AIO cooler. This cooler looks very promising as it hits all the right check boxes with a quality build."
