It looks like Corsair has come up with a new water cooler and it's a larger and improved H50 and are calling it the H70. With a thicker radiator and a push/pull fan configuration should greatly improve performance. The Corsair Hydro H50 had a 25mm radiator, so Corsair has doubled the thickness of the radiator on the H70. Very cool!
Advanced technology for cooling the world’s fastest CPUs
If you’re serious about high-performance computing and overclocking, you already know that you’ve got to keep your PC’s processor cool. In order to do this you need a CPU cooler that not only outperforms your current heatsink, but also does it quietly.
The Hydro Series H70 has been designed to deliver exceptional levels of cooling performance, and to provide significant headroom for overclocking your processor, quietly and reliably.
The Hydro Series H70 is an evolution of the award-winning Hydro Series H50, with several significant upgrades that enable it to deliver even greater cooling performance. These upgrades include a thicker 120mm radiator unit (50mm) with a higher heat-exchanging capacity, and a more efficient, low-profile pump/cold-plate unit that can soak up more heat and provide even lower CPU temperatures. The Hydro Series H70 also features two speed-switchable 120mm cooling fans in a push-pull configuration to provide powerful cooling airflow at low noise levels.
The Hydro Series H70 is compatible with all current CPU socket designs, including Intel LGA775, LGA1156 and LGA1366, and AMD Socket AM2 and Socket AM3.

120 x 50mm Radiator
The Hydro Series H70 uses a high-quality 120mm radiator unit that is double the thickness of the radiator used in the Hydro Series H50. The increased thickness of the radiator unit, compared to the H50, equates to a larger internal volume and hence higher coolant capacity. The total surface area of cooling fins is also vastly increased. Both of these upgrades contribute to significantly higher cooling capacity compared to the H50 and other high-end HSFs.
High Performance Copper Cold Plate
The Hydro Series H70 utilizes an improved copper cold plate, which is directly integrated into the pump unit. The high-quality cold plate soaks ups heat from the CPU and dissipates it into the coolant via copper micro-channels. This provides significantly higher cooling capacity compared to the Hydro H50 and traditional heatpipe-based HSFs.
Low Profile Pump Unit
The Corsair Hydro Series H70 utilizes a low-profile pump / cold-plate unit. This compact, high-performance pump unit not only allows the H70 to be used in a wide range of systems / chassis, where the size of many premium HSFs would be prohibitive, but it also places no stress on the motherboard for better overall system reliability.
Push-Pull 120mm Fans
The Hydro Series H70 utilizes two high-quality 120mm cooling fans in a push-pull configuration. The fans are speed-switchable between 2000rpm for maximum cooling performance and overclocking flexibility, for enthusiasts who want to push their CPUs to the limit, and 1600rpm for those who want a balance between powerful cooling performance and low sound levels.
