Corsair Nautilus 500

Velocity Reviews
20 November 2006
  • Conclusion: Now you have seen the cooler in action. And this is where I whine and congratulate. I have had previous experience with other water cooling kits, some good, some absolute rubbish. But the Nautilus makes a mockery of them. With detachable fitting and valves, small external unit (the correct size to sit on top of a case), 20 minute installation and that’s not it there’s much more, that you will only get when you actually buy this cooler.
  • Pros: Copper Water Block, 3/8" Tubing, Sensors for both Pump and Fan, Corsair Cool Water Additive, Mounts for most common CPU's, Quick Release Valves and Connectors, Back Plate with Connectors, 120mm Fan, External Unit, More then Just a CPU Cooler, You can get water blocks for VGA/Chipset, 500 Watt Dissipation fo Heat, Installion that doesn't require the removal of the Motherboard for installion, Cheaper then the competition by $50 US
  • Cons: You have to feed the tubing through the back plate, no connectors., Attaching the Water Block requires strength and alot of pressure, so much it feels like you are breaking the CPU.

Corsair Nautilus 500: Water Cooling Goes Mainstream

HotHardware
15 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Using water to cool the components in a PC was once considered and outlandish idea, and maybe even a little crazy. We all know what happens when water gets spilled onto something electronic, so why intentionally pump it into a system? Well, the short answer to that question is that water is far more effective at absorbing and removing heat than air.

  • Conclusion: At ~$159 USD, the Corsair Nautilus 500 Water Cooling kit is an affordably priced water cooling system lives up to its claims.While there were things that can be improved, overall Corsair has once again proven they are able to produce a quality water cooling product.I would recommend this product to anyone (like me!) who is looking for a practical and solid external water cooling unit.Overall, I would give this cooler a solid 5 out of 5.

  • Excerpt: The most obvious advantage of having everything in one unit is that the assembly has a very clean look. Furthermore, it makes assembly easier and the margin of error that could result in a leak is reduced because there are less hose connections to make than your traditional home brew water cooling ensemble.

Corsair Nautilus 500 External CPU Water Cooling Unit

  • Summary: has a very interesting product on their hand with the Nautilus 500. Their second foray into water cooling brings about many changes, and the most significant is the absolutely quick and easy installation process. The whole process took me about 15 minutes, and that time may be much longer than average simply because I was taking pictures and checking everything two or three times to make sure it was correct.
  • Pros: » No need to remove motherboard to mount CPU waterblock!, » Simple installation, » Quality components, » Includes quick connect fittings with check valves, » Easy option for a first timer, » Kit comes complete with all you need but the distilled water, » Good documentation
  • Cons: » Decent cooling, not extreme cooling, » Could be / should be quieter, » Socket 775 bracket seems far less durable than all others

  • Excerpt: Odds are good that when you think Corsair, you think of memory. As with so many other manufacturers, though, this company is expanding their product line to cover a more widespread DIY market.
