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.

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.

I be getting a H100 if it will fit in my 600t case.

I just hope they don't make it to high a price to buy.

Looks like the H100 is going to run you about $129.

Antec 1200, want to mod the front I/O by getting an antec 1200 v3 I/O panel, and will upgrade my H50 to an H100 pending some reviews and more information. Hopefully it fits in the back of the case.

Too bad they can't pair these with some custom scythe GT 1450 - 1850's, by far the best midrange RPM fans there are for noise : performance ratio.

I've actually thought about buying one of these CPU coolers and forcing it to fit on my GPU, then cutting up the graphics card cooler to fit around it and cool everything else. No friggin' idea how well it would work, but it would be pretty fun to try out if I could find one of these all-in-one loops for ~$50

That sounds like a hell of a weekend project. If you decide to do it, let us know how it goes. :)

I'm going to order the H100 when i comes out. Can't wait to see the temp differences over the H50 and it will fit perfect in the top of my 800d.

That seems to be a consensus: if you have a Corsair case these things are made to fit in perfectly.

I got a 600T so I hope your right I just don't think there will be to have fans and rad in side case
