8 March 2011
Summary: Based on our evaluation and testing here today, Corsair has done a great job on improving virtually every aspect of the original H50 that we took a look at over a year ago.
Starting with the radiator, the unit has the same 120mm fan dimensions but is a bit thicker than the original.
Conclusion: Please remember that these test results reflect our experience with each cooler on a specific motherboard, with a specific processor, BIOS revision, BCLK and voltage settings, and test programs. The results of this test cannot be directly compared to other tests since many factors will have changed.
Pros: Good performance/noise balance with fans on low speed, Included "Y" and resistor cables for fans, Easy entry into water cooling, No maintenance required
Cons: Outperformed by less expensive air coolers, Installation can be a bit tricky, pump mounting brackets seem flimsy, Standard installation dumps hot hair back inside your case, Cannot expand the system with chipset or GPU coolers, Specifications for pump, fans seem to be secrets
Corsair Hydro H70 CPU Cooler Tested On Intel S775,S1156,S1366 and AMD
19 November 2010
Summary: We test Corsair’s latest all-in-one watercooling unit on 3 Intel platforms and one AMD system to find out how it stacks up to its predecessors as well as a Thermalright high end heatsink. How does it cope with different heat loads? We overclocked four systems to 4Ghz+ to find out.
Conclusion: Overall then the H70 is a nice successor to the already good Hydro H50. The larger fin area coupled with two fans makes it one of the most powerful all in one-coolers on the markets today. The installation isn't the easiest we've experienced and definitely trickier than the one of the H50.
Excerpt: Corsair has made huge strides as a company this year and the expansion of their product lineup has really shaken up the power supply, CPU cooling, SSD, system memory, PC enclosure, and audio industries.
[Review] Corsair H70 – Water Cooling for the Masses?
14 October 2010
Conclusion: I started off asking whether or not Corsair was successful in filling the gap in the market between the top end air coolers and the monster custom water cooling solutions. That question is a bit difficult for me to answer definitively with the limited testing I’ve done.
Summary: Let's start off with the basics, packaging. We appreciate the fact that Corsair takes care of the package protection and convenience inside the typical box. Also, the outside look remains similar to Corsair PSU’s package which is attractive as well.
Corsair H70 High-Performance Hydro CPU Cooler Review
9 September 2010
Summary: Corsair's H50 sealed processor water cooling system has been a favorite among many. While it is a very solid product there was nothing truly stellar about the H50. Corsair is back to the design table today with its new H70 sealed processor cooling system.
Conclusion: Targeting the enthusiast user, Corsair's H70 lives up to its billing of class-leading performance. Priced at £77, the H70 is a significant step up from last year's H50 and offers an increase in performance that will appeal to an overclocking audience wanting to push the latest AMD or Intel CPUs to...
