Corsair H70 CPU Cooler Unboxing
Just a quick sneak peek at what the new Corsair H70 looks like coming out of it packaging. If you are familiar with the Corsair H50, then you will likely guess that Corsair is looking to do the world of sealed water cooling a little bit better.
We just received the first Corsair H70 CPU cooler into our offices and wanted to share some pictures with you. The official name and part number is the Corsair CWCH70 - Corsair Cooling Hydro Series 70. Here is what Corsair has to say about it.
The Hydro Series H70 has been designed to deliver exceptional levels of cooling performance, and to provide a significant headroom for overclocking your processor, quietly and reliably.
The Hydro Series H70 is an evolution of the award-winning Hydro Series H50, with several significant upgrades that enable it to deliver even greater colling performance. These upgrades included 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.
The Corsair H70 is a pre-filled and sealed system that does not require maintenance. It is not really meant to be in competition with "real" water cooling configurations, but rather it is aiming to earn a spot in the super-high end air cooling market.
Corsair still instructs its users to configure the fans' airflow to pull air into the case. Of course in this setup, you get cooler air across your radiator and therefore lower temps. The bad thing about this is that you are now dumping all of the CPU's heat inside your chassis. I greatly disagree with Corsair's directions on this. I think that you should set up the system to exhaust the hot air from your chassis, which in my opinion is the best advantage you get when it comes to using a radiator. Then of course if you attend to proper airflow in your computer's case all should be well. Something to think about when you are installing yours.
Anyway, enough jabbering, onto the H70 pr0n.
