Corsair Releases the Hydro Series H5

Corsair has launched the Hydro Series H5 SFF cooler. This is a closed loop cooler directly aimed at the SFF market, and Corsair claims it can cool 150w of heat quietly and efficiently.

As we know all too well, cooling in SFF builds can be somewhat of a challenge. Corsair hopes that the Hydro Series H5 will help with that, ensuring that even overclocked CPUs can be cooled effectively.

Corsair’s says that their Hydro Series H5 SF is easy to install and measures just 84mm in height. The design allows the unit to be fitted directly atop of any Mini-ITX motherboard with no need to attach the H5 SF to any external fan mounts or brackets. That’s great for compatibility with a large number of systems based upon the mini ITX design and motherboards.

The closde loop features an integrated 120mm x 40mm radiator, which is then exhausted by a low-noise tuned 120mm blower fan. To help with cooling, the bower fan draws air over other heat creating motherboard components like VRMs and chipset heatsinks.
