I’m a big fan of these closed loop all-in-one liquid coolers.  For a little extra on the cost of an air cooler we can get a quieter cooling solution and something that can offer a great way to remove heat from the CPU without going for a full blown self-build water loop.  AnandTech covered the first Corsair closed-loop liquid cooling range back in June 2011, and Dustin recently covered six of them including four from Corsair and two from NZXT in December 2012, with the larger 280mm model taking the top spot.  With that in mind, Corsair has announced a pair of larger CLCs, in the form of the 140mm H90 and the 280mm H110.

The Corsair H90 is a single width 140x140mm model that comes with a single 140mm fan, making it the bigger version of the H55.  The H110 by contrast is a double length 140x280mm loop and a pair of fans, pushing the size of the H100 but using the Asetek based mounting system of the H55.  The switch to 140mm should allow for quieter operation from the bigger fans, and Corsair states the bundled fans are designed for the high static pressure that these loops need.

It is worth noting that both models use the Asetek mounting system used on the H80/H100 rather than the CoolIT mechanism of the H80i/H100i.  Similarly, there is no mention of Corsair Link integration like the H80i/H100i, which may mean that the -i variants could be coming later this year if Corsair want to release them (and they can get the OEM of the H80i/H100i, CoolIT, to make them).

We should be getting both in to review within due course, but eager buyers can find the H90 and H110 available at the Corsair Store online for $100 and $130 respectively.  Both coolers will support all modern motherboard sockets - 2011/1366/1156/1155 for Intel and FM2/FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2 for AMD.

    Does corsair still offer their 5 year warranty, where if there is a defect and it leaks and damages other computer parts they will replace said parts?

    I ask for this piece of mind is far more important to me than a few degrees cooler or a few decibels quieter.

    At last. And all it took was someone else doing it first... Reply

    The biggest source of heat AND noise in my system has always been from the graphics card. IMO, more companies need to offer graphics cards with high end cooling (air or water) out of the box. Preferably not solutions that blow the air into the case. Reply

    What we really need are standardized graphics boards so that installing aftermarket cooling solutions onto them is easier.

    There already are manufacturers who install higher-performing cooling solutions onto their garphics cards.

    Folks, I seriously need some help here. My "home lab" is rapidly turning into a small but serious dev environment.

    Has anyone seen dual-cpu "all in one" coolers?

    I run stats and operations research (O/R) models. When they really get running, possibly for a full 10-20 hours, everything heats up dramatically.

    Any help very much appreciated.

    You either need to go with decent air coolers or custom water loops. Reply

    i've been very happy with the 80 and 100 series Corsair has made
    and we've used here.
    ... comments...
    it would be nice, not mandatory, but nice if they offered longer
    presupplied hose options on these. some cases and mounts are
    just a bit cramped or have the cooler positions a bit far from
    the CPU target which stretches things or limits choices
    for mounting orientation etc.
    i'd prefer top mount cable sockets to those on the sides
    of the heatsink-fan blocks...makes it easier to cable set
    correctly and the first time.
    perhaps the manuals could have a 'bit' more local language
    content? i've had a learning curve without text a time or two.
    we actively discourage huge bolt on air coolers now that the
    quality of these has been stable - especially for a system
    that is moved or relocated.
