Excerpt: It seems like every month brings a new liquid cooler to review. Sometimes this rapid pace creates unexpected side effects. Exhibit A: The Corsair H110 , which is nearly identical to the NZXT Kraken X60 reviewed on page 81 of this issue. They don’t use the same fans, they don’t recommend the same fan orientation, and the H110 skips software-based controls, but the rest of it appears to be the same bits manufactured by Asetek .
Pros: Solid performance with the right hardware and fan direction; uncomplicated installation.
Conclusion: It took a while for Corsair to produce a successor to 2011's Hydro Series H100, but good things come to those who wait and we now have not one, but two viable upgrade paths. In the 240mm corner, the Hydro Series H100i offers Corsair Link integration and remains one of the best all-in-one solutions on the market, and in the 280mm corner, the new Hydro Series H110 rightfully takes its place atop of the ladder as the company's best-performing cooler to date.
Summary: The Corsair Hydro Series H110 is the best performing cooler I have tested thus far. The H110 performed admirably under almost any kind of load, especially when it came to overclock testing where it soundly beats the former performance champion, the H100. With an overclock of 4.1 GHz under Prime95, a gap of 4°C forms between the Corsair Hydro Series H110 and the H100. All other competitors aren't even close in relation to pure performance.
Pros: Fantastic cooling performance, Fairly quiet, Clearance for tall memory modules, Solid construction, Great warranty
Cons: Large radiator means limited case options, Lacks Corsair Link support, Complex install compared to older Hydro Series models, Lacks screws for push/pull setups, Lacks Y-cable for attaching two fans to one fan header
Excerpt: It is sort of funny to think back to when I started reviewing CPU coolers, and when I got my first AIO cooler. Back then we were all just happy to try out the new technology, and used these systems at the time for looks and weight reduction on the CPU sockets, since performance wasn't all that great back then. Today there are enough manufacturers out there that you have a full array of options.
Corsair Hydro Series H110 Liquid CPU Cooler Review
8 March 2013
Conclusion: Now for the all important pricing. Corsair’s H110 will be retailing in the UK at approximately £95 . It’s closest competitor, the NZXT Kraken X60, costs £115 – that is 20% more. It is also worth giving an honourable mention to the Corsair H100i which showed itself as a potent competitor against the might of the 280mm radiator units, the Corsair H100i costs £91 .
Summary: The Corsair H110 is a simple liquid cooling system for CPUs with a huge radiator cooled by two 140 mm fans side-by-side, with a cooling performance that equals the most powerful sealed water coolers we tested so far.
It may lack extras such as color-changing LEDs, integrated fan controller, and USB interface, but what the H110 delivers is simple, plain, cooling performance.
Corsair H90 and H110 Hydro Liquid CPU Cooler Review
27 February 2013
Summary: Corsair, once known only for quality enthusiast RAM modules, has successfully diversified its products reaching into cases, power supplies, processor cooling solutions. With the release of the H90 and H110 Hydro Series, we see the first new refresh in its closed loop liquid cooling systems.
Summary: You know, we recently tested the NZXT Kraken series which in essence is a product close to the Corsair H110. Both originate from the very same ODM, albeit with different preferences and specs. The basis (radiator/cooling-block) however is from the same DNA. So it's not a surprise to see the two similar sized products perform very close to each other. My preference however goes to Corsair for the simple fact that is it the most silent product.
Corsair Hydro 90 & H110 Review - 140mm Cooling Power
28 January 2013
Summary: Corsair just recently launched a brand new Hydro series with the H80i and H100i units, both coolers being updated versions of their predecessors, not alone being overhauled in the cooling/pump block design, but also the addition of the new CORSAIR AIR Static Pressure fans was a big plus for the new Hydro i series. Secondly the LINK software was now directly supported, without the need of buying the optional Command Control set.
Excerpt: 268 Flares 268 Flares × Today we are going to look at the Corsair H90 which fits into the middle of the Hydro range, in a similar position to the H80i. It is designed to compete directly with the new NZXT Kraken X40 (review forthcoming), boasting a 140 mm radiator to improve performance over standard 120 mm models. We are also going to take another look at the Corsair H110, and see how it compares when cooling an Intel Core i7-3930K processor.
