Corsair Hydro Series H105 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler Review
It's time to look at the newest AIO from Corsair. This time we have optional color choices, and a whole lot of great performance.

Packaging

The H105 arrives like most other Hydros series coolers, that is, in black packaging with a single highlighted color for the naming. We get to see the entire AIO on the cover, we see it mounts to both AMD and Intel, and it says Extreme Performance in the red line near the bottom.

Laying the box back down, we can now take a trip around the side panels. In six languages, we are given the contents, with two renderings at the bottom showing the radiator dimensions from every angle, with or without the fans included.

This time, we see six languages covering the extreme performance, easy installation, and customizable performance features of the H105 with a stock cooler comparison to the right. At the bottom, we see compatible sockets and processors to the left, and we see that the ring on the head unit can be changed to the right.

Around on this side, we are given the basic specifications and dimensions of the H105.

The last panel then lists five more features of the H105. They cover the large radiator, the SP12L fans, the improved mounting (we will see), the low-evaporation and flexibility of the tubing, as well as the copper micro-fin coldplate.

Once the box was opened, we found the H105 comes with the same internal packaging as all the rest of the AIOs. Separated compartments made of recycled cardboard keep all the parts from touching and does a great job of protecting the cooler inside. Our sample showed up in perfect condition without even a single bent fin on the radiator, and that is rare in our experience.
