Corsair has upped their presence in the cooling field with the new 140mm fan-based additions to the Hydro Series™ CPU water cooler lineup. Corsair was kind enough to provide us with samples of their H90 and H110 series cooling units, both using 140mm fans. We put these coolers up against their H80i 120mm fan-based unit as well as our custom-built Swiftech Apogee HD cooling system to see how well these new Corsair units performed. Starting at a base price of $99.99 for the Corsair H90 cooler, you can't go wrong with either unit.

Corsair worked with Asetek to design their new 140mm-based line of coolers with the H90 and H110 introduced to enhance their current line of coolers. Both coolers are built using aluminum radiators capable of holding 140mm fans and copper cold plates. The rubber coated tubing used is low permeability 1/4 inch based tubing with multiple layers used to prevent liquid evaporation and to provide maximum tubing flexibility. Unlike their Corsair Link™ based coolers, the Corsair H90 and H110 units do not have integrated LEDs nor the Corsair Link™ based monitoring system.

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.
