Liquid CPU coolers have become quite prevalent over the last couple years, and you can’t help but notice another one pop up on the market here and there, especially from Corsair. Ivy Bridge and Haswell CPUs are very well known to be large heat producers, so one needs a better solution to cool them down. The stock HSF that Intel includes with these CPUs isn’t enough, since even in stock form you can see very high temperatures, depending on the application you’re running. Not something you want to see with a brand new processor, right?
Step on over to Corsair’s recently released Hydro Series H75 liquid CPU cooler. This cooler is designed to tame those nasty temperatures that you may be seeing and also be very compact, measuring only 25mm thick, fitting in small cases and/or tight spaces. Compatible with both Intel and AMD CPUs, this kit features a slim 120mm radiator, an Asetek pump, pinch resistant tubing, and dual SP120L fans to maximize the cooling potential of this kit.
The H75 will set you back $84.99 shipped on Amazon and comes with a 5 year warranty. Talk about a piece of mind if your kit ever breaks down. The big thing that drives down the cost of this kit is the fact that it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that say the H100i has; this meaning, it has no USB interface to monitor pump’s RPM, liquid temperatures, or LED functionality.
