Computex 2009: Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50 self-contained water cooler

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 1, 2009 - 09:01 PM |

Corsair has a few new goodies to share at Computex this year including a new self-contained CPU water cooling product called the H50.  Though it is quite obviously based on an Asetek unit, Corsair claims that this is the best performing unit Asetek has ever developed and that Corsair has exclusive rights to sell it.

The new Corsair H50 consists of a reservoir and pump integrated onto the water block itself running to a radiator and fan that mounts on the interior or exterior of your case, depending on case design and preference.

The Corsair H50 apparently no only outperforming other high end standard coolers like the Thermalright 120 but it will also cost about the same, if not less.  If that turns out to be true once we see these products for sale, I would imagine they will be very popular indeed.

The H50 will only support Intel LGA775 and LGA1366 platforms out of the box but brackets are going to be made available for AMD's AM2/AM3 motherboards as well.

UPDATE: Corsair is telling me now that the H50 cooling system will be available at the end of June with an MSRP somewhere around the $80 mark making it a GREAT option to compete against high-end air coolers.
