Good performance/noise balance with fans on low speed.
Included "Y" and resistor cables for fans.
Easy entry into water cooling.
No maintenance required.
Compact and totally self-contained.
Relatively easy and quick installation.
No manual options for configuring fans or system itself.
Extra software for monitoring system would be beneficial.

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...-

Corsair H70 failed to destroy the stereotype that compact liquid-cooling systems are not as efficient as super air-coolers. Again a cooling system like that proved to be less efficient than the best CPU air-cooler. To be fair we have to admit that...-

Looking at the results on the different test platforms, it's clear that the new hydro 70 gives quite a a good showing. The bigger radiator and extra fan have really helped to improve the aging Hydro 50's performance. The new mounting (compared...-

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...-

Liquid cooling still has the image of being expensive and complicated. Corsair, in cooperation with the cooling specialists at Asetek, now offers the H70 that aims to simplify the step up from air cooling. Can it beat less expensive premium heatsinks?...-

Our experience with the H70 had many high points, but there were a few minor issues that might turn off some enthusiasts. The first minor issue I noticed was the additional noise from the fans. We tried the fans with and without the voltage...-
