Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50 CPU Cooler Announced

Intel® and AMD CPUs Just Got Cooler

The new Corsair Cooling™ Hydro Series H50 high-performance CPU cooler outperforms stock CPU coolers by up to 30%

Taipei, Taiwan R.O.C., June 2, 2009 – Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer memory, power supplies and flash memory products, including solid-state drives, today debuted the new Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50 high-performance CPU cooler at Computex 2009.

Working in concert with ASEtek, a worldwide leader in liquid cooling systems for high-performance computing, Corsair has developed an easy-to-install CPU cooling solution that outperforms stock CPU coolers by more than 30%. Utilizing a copper CPU cooling plate and integrated pump connected to a 120mm radiator and high-efficiency, low-noise fan, the Hydro Series H50 delivers superior cooling for higher overclocking performance and greater stability. Unlike traditional liquid-cooling solutions, the H50 is a closed-loop system that is supplied pre‑filled and fully connected using low permeability tubing to virtually eliminate evaporation and leaking.

“Until today, most innovations in CPU cooling revolved around how to fit increasingly bulky and unmanageable heatpipe-based air coolers into a chassis,” said Jim Carlton, Vice President of Marketing for Corsair, “The new Hydro Series H50 changes the game, packing an incredible amount of cooling into a much more compact solution and delivering better performance than even high-end, dual-fan CPU coolers that barely squeeze into a system.”

Tests performed in the Corsair Lab show significant improvements over traditional air-based CPU coolers. Using a test system built using a popular gaming case and an Intel Core i7-965 processor overclocked to 3.46GHz with a vcore of 1.3V, the following results were obtained:

Corsair H50 High Performance Air Cooler Standard CPU Fan

IDLE 38.375°C 43°C 47.95°C
50% Load 42.5°C 49°C 57.55°C
100% Load 55.85°C 62.5°C 79.85°C

The Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50 comes complete with the copper CPU cooling plate and pump unit, 120mm radiator and fan, and mounting brackets for both Intel LGA775 and Intel LGA1366 socket motherboards. Brackets for AMD socket AM2 and AM3 motherboards are available for a nominal shipping and handling charge by contacting Corsair Technical Support.

The Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50 will be available by the end of June from Corsair authorized resellers and distributors worldwide, and is backed by a two year limited warranty. Complete customer support via telephone, email, forum and Tech Support Express is also available.

nope, just what they showed here. Corsair did send out 2 beta review units (hexus and hardocp got them). We are on the first group of final production samples that will be sent out in ~2 weeks... They say it crushes the CoolIt Domino and even some popular Noctua and Thermaltake air coolers that cost roughly the same price.
