Self-contained liquid cooling kits can be interesting alternatives to air coolers, especially for folks obsessed with low noise levels. Corsair is still hard at work promoting the concept. In fact, the firm has just added another design to its Hydro Series coolers: the H70.
If you're familiar with the Hydro Series H50—and loyal TR readers should be, seeing as we reviewed it last year—the H70's looks and basic functionality won't surprise. Corsair has, however, made a few tweaks that should result in more effective cooling:
The Hydro Series H70 CPU cooler is an evolution of the award-winning Hydro Series H50, with several significant upgrades that enable it to deliver even greater cooling performance. These upgrades include a double-thickness (50mm) radiator with higher heat-exchanging capacity and a pump/cold plate unit with increased efficiency. The H70 also features two 120mm speed-switchable cooling fans in a push-pull configuration to provide increased airflow at low noise levels.
The H70 supports the latest processors from both AMD and Intel, and Corsair says the cooler is available "immediately" from its "network of authorized distributors and resellers." I don't see the H70 in stock at Newegg just now, although the H50 is still selling for $79.99.
