The Corsair Hydro Series™ CPU water coolers come in a variety of sizes and configurations to fit the needs of all classes of computer enthusiasts. We decided to look at their latest revisions of these coolers, embodied in the H60, H80i, and H100i cooling units. We put these units up against the Swiftech Apogee HD custom cooling system on our test bench to see just how well these coolers performed. Starting at a base price of $79.99 for the Corsair H60 cooler, you really can't go wrong with the any of these standalone units.

Corsair's H60, an easy to install self contained liquid cooling apparatus

The model numbers that Corsair is using for their self contained liquid cooling devices is a little confusing.  With the H50 and H70 already on the market, one would be forgiven for thinking that the new H60 should perform in between the two existing models.   That is not necessarily true as the H60 is more of a redesign of the lineup.  The installation process has been simplified with a square waterblock to fit your square CPU and they've changed the mounting bracket as well.  The cooling performance is exactly like the H50; it is the acoustic performance that has been improved as this cooler is much quieter than either of the other models.   Head on over to [H]ard|OCP to see their final verdict on this cooler.

No word on if it will blend yet.

"Corsair's H60 liquid CPU cooler comes to us with different technology than we saw with its H50 and H70 as Corsair has switched up supply sources. Corsair is touting a micro-channel cold plates and a split-flow designed manifolds. But, will it blend?"

Here are some more Cases & Cooling reviews from around the web:

As you can no doubt tell, PC Perspective got a HUGE and much needed facelift over the weekend to what we are internally calling "PC Perspective v4.0".  I know there are still some kinks to work out and we are actively addressing any feedback from our readers in this comment thread.  

But we want to celebrate the launch of the new site in style!!  Some of our site sponsors have very generously offered up some prizes for us to give out throughout the coming days...

The second prize is in fact PRIZES since Corsair is going to be handing out a Hydro H60 CPU water cooler to TWO lucky PC Perspective readers!

What do you have to do to win this wonderful piece of hardware?

Couldn't be easier: post a comment in this post thanking Corsair for its sponsorship of PC Perspective and maybe include a thought or two on the new site design (compliments, constructive criticism, hate filled monologues, whatever).  You should probably have a registered account or at least be sure you include your email address in the appropriate field so we can contact you!

We will pick the winners tomorrow and move on to the next hardware that finds its way to PC Perspective offices.  Good luck and thanks for reading!!
