Packaging and Manuals

View Full Size

The Hydro Series™ H90 liquid cooler is shipped in a form-fitted cardboard enclosure, similar to the material that egg cartons are made from but thicker stock. This keeps the cooler and its components in-place and protected during shipping and store handling. Further, each component in the box are individually wrapped so that all the parts and pieces remain separated and organized for quick unboxing and assembly. The unit's radiator and fan are both protected by cardboard sleeves so that the delicate radiator and fan fins do not become crushed or misshapen during shipping.

Corsair includes a very detailed and straight-forward manual with the H90 cooler, containing good explanations and illustrations covering unit setup and installation into motherboards of all supported socket types. Additionally, they include a warranty pamphlet as well as a warranty instruction card should you run into issues.

The Hydro Series™ H90 cooling system consists of an aluminum-based 170mm x 140mm x 27mm radiator capable of supporting up to two 140mm x 140mm fans, attached to a CPU copper-based cooling assembly via 1/4 inch rubber hoses. The cooling hoses are attached to the CPU assembly by rotating nozzles, capable of a full 360 degrees of rotation.

The H90 comes standard with a single 140mm x 140mm x 25mm fan that can be front-mounted for a push configuration as shown in the picture or back-mounted for a pull-type configuration. When using the H90 in a  single fan configuration, Corsair recommends front mounting the fan in a push-type configuration.

Great review, will try to save up for one for my AMD CPU that keeps hitting 70c at load using the sunbeam core contact cooler

Mind you that the CCF is a direct touch heatpipe cooler, so you might want to check out if it's making contact well, and re-TIM if necessary.

I had one back in the day and even thought a cheap cooler, it wasn't that bad. It did the job and kept my E6600 cool. It's not all that well built though you might want to remount it or slap a second fan to it somehow. A second fan would help that cooler.

And well, I wouldn't suggest these cheap AIO water loops. Just get a TPC-812 and be done with it.
