    Sorry if there's already a thread for these but I searched and nothing really popped up so thought I'd start a discussion. I've actually been eagerly awaiting something like these for a while considering many cases, especially those from Lian Li and my cases maker Cubitek, come with predominantly 140mm fans and it seems strange that no 140mm AIO coolers have been released yet, so hopefully this starts a competitive trend.

    Just a few reviews I got from googling:

    http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/corsair_h90_review,1.html

    http://www.hardocp.com/article/2013...hydro_liquid_cpu_cooler_review/1#.UTE1DjCqa6M

    http://www.hitechlegion.com/reviews/cooling/liquid/33257-corsair-h90-h110?showall=&limitstart=

    And product links from PCCG:

    H90

    H110

    These look like really worthwhile coolers, all the review I read were positive and you can see why. Closed loops have always had good mid end cooling capabilities but you'd have to use high speed, high noise fans to really reap the benefits, where as the H90 and H110 don't really need speeds above 1500RPM, probably not even over 1000RPM to get comparable performance to other AIO coolers but with significantly lower noise. I plan on buying the H90 for myself as I have a top mounted 140mm fan directly above my motherboard which will be perfect for mounting the H90 and keeping my system how I like it. Quiet.

    So well done to corsair I say, for once again paving the way for AIO coolers for the mainstream consumer, what are your thoughts on these?

    Cheers

    And just thought I'd raise another question as to what people think the best fan would be for these coolers? I have Thermalrite X-Silents which are unbelievably quiet, but there might be better options I'm unaware of.

    Sorry to burst your bubble here but NZXT already released a 140.2 AIO cooler, heres a link;

    http://www.nzxt.com/new/products/cpu_cooler/kraken_x60

    Only difference is that Corsair have better channels for pushing their products into (and established product base) so while it seems they are the first to the market, they are in fact playing catch up.

    Get them to release a 360mm or 420mm AIO cooler and I will be interested :thumbup:

    They all seem to come from Asetek anyway. They are better than air for sure, if you want quiet.

    I really dont like that mounting system, its the same as the h50 by the looks of it. Was a serious pain in the ass to mount that one.

    Yeah I agree, not sure why they didn't stick with the square design of the lower h80 and h100... It's still better than most tower coolers imo.

    too thin, doubt there'd be a hell of a lot of difference between the 110 and 100i.
    the funs supplied are (from the looks of it) nowhere near the quality of the ones on the 100i.

    true, you can buy the equivalents separately but they're $25 each, which I guess is why they're so much cheaper... but for around the same performance you do get a lot lower noise levels, which is what intrigues me.

    The Thermaltake dual 120 is better :p

    Thick dual rad.

    then again with the H220 out, that's even better still.

    Great to see more options in the kit WC market, still waiting for a 180mm for my FT02 though.

    bought my H90, will let people know how it is when I install it. One thing I noticed is the block is much bigger than previous revisions, which I think is a good thing

    could put a 120mm there, with the AP fan it should do okay still. I'e seen builds with 120's in the bottom.

    they just need to make a hella thick 240mm, 280mm is not supported by too many cases.

    I just think they should have a thick and thin variant of all their closed loops, something for the space conscious and then the one for the people who want a big rad without the hassle.

    Links plz? I am yet to see a rad more than 25mm-30mm thick.

    Edit: Sry, remembered the corsair ones, but they're low fpi which is pretty gay..... and also only 120.1

    I mean all of them, there's no h80 thickness variant of the h100. There are only thin 140 closed loops too, what if I want a thick one without doing a full loop?
