Corsair Hydro Series H75 Liquid CPU Cooler

The head unit is likely the most stylish design we have seen from Corsair, with the thick metal ring surrounding the name and logo. Inside of this is the pump and impeller that use the ceramic bearing for smoother operation, and longer lifespan.

The pair of angled fittings are screwed into the plastic head unit, and have plastic collars to keep the rubber tubing attached. Also, the 3-pin fan connector comes out of the block very close to them, and its orientation to the logo allows the cable to run cleanly to the fan header.

Corsair sends the micro-channeled cold plate with a round application of thermal paste. Once this is done, the entire bottom of the head unit gets a plastic cover to protect both the base finish, as well as the TIM application, until you are ready to mount it.

With the TIM removed, it is easier to see the circular milling that the base goes through for the final surface. Also, with this plate, it is higher in the middle, and reduces in height as you move to the sides. This means that mounting pressure is the key to this cooler's success, as the dead center isn't the only hot part of the processor.

To keep the Intel mounting ring on the head unit, there is the black plastic ring that clips into it. This will need to be removed to swap out the AMD ring for AMD installations.

At the other end of eleven and a half inches of black rubber tubing, they meet up with the aluminum radiator. Here, the tubing is stretched over aluminum barbs, but again uses plastic collars to make sure the tubing won't creep off under pressure.

As for the rest of the single 120mm radiator, it uses a high FPI arrangement of the aluminum fins. We all know from experience that to get high performance out of these radiators, you need some serious fans with good air flow, and static pressure, to do these any justice.

This shot was to show off the sticker that is applied to the top of the radiator, but it also works out to highlight the thin 27mm of breadth that the H75 is working with.
