Corsair H70 review

The main purpose of every cooling system is to take the heat from one component and send it infinity and beyond ..
Using the traditional air-cooling method, the thermal energy from the cpu starts moving forward to the fins though the heatpipes. As an effect, the whole heatsink gets hotter and hotter, thats why we need a fan to push away all these waves of thermal energy. In the end, the hot air goes out of the case by using the help of other case fans, which are usually installed in the back of the full tower. Everything is about ambient temps and air flow, whereas in water-cooling method, coolant is the mean of heat transport. The coolant is pumped to the radiator where it cools down. Then, it flows back towards the component we want to take the heat from the processor. Note that the coolant is transferred through plastic tubes.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Guru3D presents you the Corsair Hydro H70 Series
Lets take a closer look to the components that actually define our water-cooling kit. At first we see an integrated pump into the CPU block. A pump is amongst the most vital component of the water-cooling circuit. We could say that its the heart (similar to human body) of it. The most important thing about the pump, it is reliability. Other parameters interfere with dimensions and space, and last but not least everything ends to the price. Bad quality pumps are not reliable. However, high-profile models are not only trustworthy, silent and reliable, but they can also offer you a descent rate of pressures, so you will never worry about pumping issues.
The block utilizes an improved copper cold plate, which is directly integrated into the pump unit. The cold plate soaks ups the heat from the CPU and dissipates it into the coolant via copper micro-channels. This provides significantly higher cooling capacity compared to the H50 and traditional heatpipe-based HSFs. Contrary to H50, its size has improved and looks slim and nice. In addition, once concern we had is that the pump is tend to get warm and that heat might move downwards to the CPU block.
At last, an essential improvement. The hoses swivel at the water block! As you can see from the picture above, Ive stretched them without any problem. Hence feel free to swivel the hoses and make your life easier during installation into the chassis.
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
Corsair H90 review
A test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor.
