All In One water cooling kits are starting to take center stage more and more these days. It seems that 75% of the new builds I see are incorporating them over air coolers, even if it means greater cost. I'm not sure if this is because it is the cool thing to do, or if the previous versions of AIO water coolers are just easier to use. I'm leaning on the fact, that up till now, it was the cool thing to do. From our testing, the numbers didn't justify the end result. Don't take this as hate towards them; I like them for certain instances. These are instances where room is too tight for a tower cooler to be used, or if you just want a cleaner look to the interior. Otherwise, without adding fans, or swapping for higher CFM fans all together, there are cheaper solutions to cooling already on the market, if they fit!
I have seen a lot of love on many forums about the performance capabilities of the H50 we tested not too long ago. What I have seen time and time again, is that users are at least opting for a second fan. I learned over the years that a push/pull setup, when configured correctly, can seriously benefit the efficiency of the cooler. Corsair has listened and read what everyone was saying and revamped the H50. Hopefully with the new ideas and implementations, Corsair's latest submission could top the charts in AIO cooling.
Not only does this new version come with two fans, there is also a new head unit design and a thicker 120mm radiator is used. That's right, TweakTown has gotten its hands on the new Hydro Series H70, and I am eager to see how much more efficient this sealed, AIO water cooling unit is. All of these units are maintenance free and don't require any re-filling or bleeding of the loop. They do require cleaning as does any cooler, but this one can go where full tower coolers cannot! With the new redesigned head unit, thicker radiator and twin fans, I'm a bit excited to see how well it can stand up to our testing.
