Corsair Stretches Hydra Series H60 Cooler Warranty to 5 Years

A high-five is in order for Corsair for more than doubling the warranty period on its Hydra Series H60 CPU cooler from two years to five years, ensuring that there's at least one component you won't have to worry about for the life of your system (unless you keep your systems for more than five years, in which, it's time to upgrade, playa!). And don't go pounding sand if you already purchased an H60 cooler, the extended warranty applies to you, too.

"The new, longer warranty reflects the care that Corsair has taken with design and construction of the H60, as well as the choice of high-quality materials," said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager for Components at Corsair. "Our customers can enjoy the benefits of high performance CPU cooling and confidently expect reliable operation for at least half a decade."


Amen to that, and kudos to Corsair for its confidence in the H60, which is a closed-loop CPU cooling system that uses a custom-designed high static pressure fan, the newly designed micro-channel cold plate, and split-fold manifold. The cooler carries and MSRP of $74.

That's a good price for a good cooler. The latest CPU's seem to be a little cooler running than the last generation was. So monster coolers are less desirable, and even unnecessary these days. These little water coolers are quiet and get the job done. You can mod them to add another fan for the push/pull effect if you're into overclocking your rig.

A five year warranty just makes it a sweeter deal than it already was.

Win-Win,..............

Big ups to corsair and standing behind their product. I will definitely consider them for my first build as I have heard and read great reviews on their cpu coolers.

this is really great news for those considering Corsair H60 coolers to extend the warranty to 5 years .They should, because they are using better materials these days and backing up the product.Great cooler, higher quality of manufacture extended warranty all gooood !

Yeah; my coolers have been in place for a year or slightly more now, of course neither is an H60, but I have been thinking about replacing them with H60's or 70's when the time comes for replacement or resealing, and or pretty soon.I would probably also replace the fan or go with a dual fan implementation either way. One thing which is confusing to me is of the H60 and H70 are the same unit one being single and one being dual fan, or if the H70 is actually bigger. I have not compare the details yet really I just looked at the generals!

The cooler on your prize rig is probably like the one that came on mine. It's an Asetek LCLC (low cost liquid cooler) and it's essentially the same as the H50, but it's only sold wholesale to boutique builders to use, not the general public.  Asetek makes the full line of Antec water coolers and Corsair's water Coolers too.

The H70 has a thicker, square 120mm. radiator than the H50 does. I went to dual fans with my Asetek LCLC, and my Corsair H50 and both of them cool better that way. I used aftermarket high airflow & low noise 120mm fans from NewEgg. Here is a picture of the Corsair, moving air out of the case, with two more fans exhausting air above the cooler's radiator.

And here's the other one.

Actually the H60 has a different heatsink design than the H50-H70s. I am currently running a H50, and am thinking of upgrading to a H60 because of the thermal differences, and the price is right on it as well.

Corsair goes and makes the H50 even more desirable; now all I need to do is get myself a case with a 120MM fanhole and I'll be set for life!
