Excerpt: Since the inception of AIO coolers, and when CoolIT and Asetek went to making third party coolers and dealing much less with a retail product of their own, Corsair was one of the first to get on board and start selling AIOs under their name with the Hydro series. Back in the beginning, things were chunky, failures were a bit more rampant in forums, but with a brand like Corsair they were able to overcome issues along the way.
Summary: Great stuff, if you are not voltage tweaking heaps on your Ivy Bridge based processor then the h90 might be an excellent alternative towards bulky big heatpipe coolers. At 1.30 Volts however you can see what they have invented 240 and 280mm radiators. Overall though this new 140mm cooling solution is offering good performance at a great price. The aesthetics however are 10x better then any heat-pipe based cooler you can purchase.
Summary: The Corsair Hydro Series H90 is certainly a stand-out product. While it may be overshadowed by more value-oriented products at more typical loads, overclocking is where its value becomes apparent. With just a light overclock under Prime95, a gap of 15°C forms between the Corsair Hydro Series H90 and its next competitor.
Pros: Fantastic cooling performance, Quiet, Clearance for tall memory modules, Solid construction
Cons: Lacks Corsair Link support, Complex install compared to other Hydro Series models, Lacks screws for dual fan option
Summary: Estábamos ansiosos por poder probar este nuevo kit de refrigeración líquida de Corsair, y hemos quedado realmente satisfechos en todos los aspectos. Para empezar, las principales ventajas de un kit como este son, como ya hemos comentado en la introducción, una instalación sencilla, un diseño gracias al cual no obstaculizará con otros componentes como los módulos de memoria RAM y en especial un rendimiento superior a la competencia por aire en la mayoría de los casos.
Pros: Rendimiento excelente., Muy apto para Overclocking., Sencillo de instalar, Diseño y estética., No interferirá con ningún modulo de RAM.
