Corsair Intros Hydro Series H50 CPU Cooler

If you snap up Corsair's Obsidian Series 800D chassis, cooling is likely not going to be a big concern. For everyone else, the aforementioned company's Hydro Series H50 CPU cooler just might come in handy. Working in conjunction with ASEtek, who knows a thing or two about liquid cooling, Corsair has developed an easy-to-install CPU cooling solution that outperforms stock CPU coolers by more than 30%.



Utilizing a copper CPU cooling plate and integrated pump connected to a 120mm radiator and high-efficiency, low-noise fan, the Hydro Series H50 delivers better-than-average cooling for higher overclocking performance and greater stability; very much unlike traditional liquid-cooling solutions, the H50 is a closed-loop system that is supplied pre-filled and fully connected using low permeability tubing to virtually eliminate evaporation and leaking.

Jim Carlton, Vice President of Marketing for Corsair, had this to say regarding the announcement: "Until today, most innovations in CPU cooling revolved around how to fit increasingly bulky and unmanageable heatpipe-based air coolers into a chassis. The new Hydro Series H50 changes the game, packing an incredible amount of cooling into a much more compact solution and delivering better performance than even high-end, dual-fan CPU coolers that barely squeeze into a system."



Tests performed in the Corsair Lab show significant improvements over traditional air-based CPU coolers.  Using a test system built using a popular gaming case and an Intel Core i7-965 processor overclocked to 3.46GHz with a vcore of 1.3V, the following results were obtained:

That's just like the CoolIT Domino A.L.C. Except the Domino has adjustable fan speeds. The Domino doesn't have a copper bas however... I think it's aluminum? I'd like to see the 2 go head to head. :-)
