FREMONT, California — October 25, 2012 — Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced an updated version of the award-winning Hydro Series H60 liquid CPU cooler, and the new Hydro Series H55 liquid CPU cooler.
The Hydro Series H55 is an update to the hugely respected Hydro Series H50, and is based on the latest, 4th generation cold-plate design. The updated version of the Hydro Series H60 takes advantage of the latest cold plate, manifold and fan technology to further increase performance and reduce noise levels.
"The Hydro Series H50 and H60 have a hard-won reputation for delivering effective, reliable, and quiet CPU cooling,” said Thi La, Senior VP & GM of Memory and Enthusiast Component Products at Corsair. "These new and improved versions demonstrate Corsair’s commitment to providing our customers with the latest and best integrated liquid cooling technology.”
In addition to the new cold plate and manifold design, the Hydro Series H60 also utilizes larger diameter tubing, which increases the coolant flow rate and performance. The new composite rubber tubing makes installation easier, but retains the low-evaporation rates of the older, more rigid tubing, guaranteeing a long lifetime. The Hydro Series H60 also introduces a new magnetic mounting bracket, which makes it simple to select the correct motherboard socket format.
H60 Includes Fan Based on Award Winning Air Series SP120
A high-quality fan designed specifically to move air through the fins of a liquid cooling radiator is an essential part of any liquid cooling system. The new H60 includes a 120mm fan based on the award-winning Air Series SP120. This utilizes a motor that has been specially tuned for high torque, ensuring outstanding static pressure, and consistently high performance at low noise levels.
The Hydro Series H55 is designed to provide a simple and effective upgrade from a basic CPU air cooler. The 4th generation cold plate design, and high static-pressure, low noise 120mm fan provides great performance, while the tool-free mounting bracket and low-permeability rubber tubing makes installation simple.
Both the Hydro Series H55 and Hydro Series H60 CPU coolers are compatible with most cases that feature a rear 120mm fan mount. Both support motherboards based on the Intel LGA115x/1366/2011, and AMD AM2/AM3/FM1 sockets, and are backed by a five year limited warranty.
Pricing and Availability
The Corsair Hydro Series H60 is available immediately from Corsair’s worldwide network of resellers and distributors, at a price of $79.99 in the United States.
The Corsair Hydro Series H55 is available immediately from Corsair’s worldwide network of resellers and distributors, at a price of $69.99 in the United States.

The new Hydro series sealed-loop water coolers from Corsair that we got a sneak peek of earlier this month have now been officially announced by Corsair. The H80 is a double-thick 120mm radiator, and will be compatible with the majority of standard ATX cases on the market. In contrast, the H100 uses a dual 120mm radiator and will require modding or a case that supports mounting holes for standard 240mm radiators.
Both sealed loop water coolers feature a low profile water block and digital fan control, which will allow enthusiasts the choice between maximum performance and quiet operation. Further, the coolers include Corsair’s Link technology, which provides a “system for monitoring and control.” Systems that have Corsair Link Commander hardware, which is a hardware monitoring kit that mounts in a 3.5” drive bay and connects to software on the PC via USB, will be afforded even more control over sound levels and performance. The H80 includes headers for two fans while the H100 includes headers for four fans.
The H80's fan connectors
Ruben Mookerjee, the VP and GM for Components at Corsair stated that with the H80 and H100 coolers, the company focused on what made the earlier Hydro series so successful; “closed-loop reliability, straightforward installation, and, of course, the best CPU cooling technology available.” The Hydro H80 and H100 will be available from authorized retailers beginning in June, and carry a MSRP of $109 USD and $119 USD respectively.
Corsair's Hydro H70 has been their top of the line sealed-loop water cooler for some time now. While it can be great for overclockers on a budget and enthusiasts who do not feel comfortable mounting a heavy air cooler on their motherboards, it has not been able to match the cooling performance of self assembled water loops. Corsair may be looking to change this, as Sweclockers found two new sealed-loop H80 and H100 Hydro series coolers posted on a Swedish online store. Tech Power Up reports that the H80 is listed for $154 USD, while the H100 is listed for $172.50 USD (converted from Swedish Krona).
The H80 looks very similar to the H70, with a few small tweaks on the CPU water block. The block appears to be thicker than that of the H70, which may indicate a higher flow pump. A control knob is also present on top of the water block, which may control the amount of water the pump pushes. The H100, on the other hand starts to look less like the current Hyrdo series coolers and more like a traditional water loop with its double 120mm radiator. The H100 further has a the same control knob as the H80. While the H80 has a lot to prove as a single radiator cooler versus its H70 predecessor, depending on the street price the new additions to the Hydro series should help fill in the performance gap between the H70 and a full DIY water loop.

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!!
