Ok then, we are ready to review Corsair Hydro Series H70. If you are serious about high-performance computing and overclocking, you already know that youve need to have your PCs processors cool. In order to do this you need a CPU cooler that not only outperforms your current heatsink, but preferably also does that quietly.
The Hydro Series H70 has been designed to deliver exceptional levels of cooling performance, and to provide significant headroom for overclocking your processor, quietly and reliably. To avoid misunderstandings we have added some noise level measurements in next pages as well.
According to Corsairs advertisement, the Hydro Series H70 is a significant upgrade of H50 that enables it to deliver even greater cooling performance than its predecessor. These upgrades include a thicker 120mm radiator unit (50mm) with a higher heat-exchanging capacity, and a more efficient, low-profile pump/cold-plate unit that can soak up more heat and provide even lower CPU temperatures. The Hydro Series H70 also features two speed-switchable 120mm cooling fans in a push-pull configuration to provide powerful cooling airflow at low noise levels. Also, it is compatible with all current CPUs socket designs:
Pre-filled, closed-loop system is easy to install. No maintenance.
Copper CPU cooling plate for maximum cooling performance
Integrated pump and reservoir is sealed for zero maintenance and improved leakage protection
120mm radiator for fast heat dispersion
Two high-efficiency, 120mm fan for drawing cool air across the radiator at speed of 1600 or 2000 RPM
The first concern with this product is its actual s price, which is tagged around 110 Euros. Corsair, wanted to justify the high price, and offers a single 120mm radiator one of the thickest models in the market.
For those who are novice in water-cooling fields, the thicker the radiator is, the higher the cooling performance is.
Although many thrilled users expected a dual 240mm radiator, Corsair chose again to use a single 120mm one. Maybe, we will witness such a implementation in the forthcoming H90 (who knows ?). Finally, another point worth mentioning is that there is a capability of using a push-pull fan configuration mount onto the radiator, which is also a factor that improves heat dissipation.
Corsair H75 review In this review we test the Corsair H75 liquid cooler. The H75 features a 120 mm radiator that is a good 25mm but also was applied with two really silent low RPM fans, so you add this kit in a push-p...
Corsair H105 review We test and review the Corsair H105 liquid cooler. The H105 features a 240 mm radiator that is thicker then normal, with a 38 mm thickness. As comparison the H100 uses a 27mm tick radiator....

Corsair RM650 Watt Gold PSU review We review the Corsair RM650 GOLD power supply. Yes, the silent and a bit mainstream RM650 is now Gold certified, that means it's 90% efficient at 50% load. Efficiency matters. The PSU itself is partly modular, for most of you with a side panel window in their chassis a must really as you'll want modular cables. The new PSU also improved on the audibility front. Have a peek at the article.
