Corsair changes the entire cooling game at Computex 2019

Computex 2019 - Corsair, I know you're listening -- you killed it at Computex. If there was a 'favorite' cooling company, you are it. Every show you blow my mind and this year more than ever. There is a lot to go through, but we'll cover the basics of what they unveiled at the show and some nice pics in between.

Corsair unveiled its new Hydro X initiative makes building a watercooled PC easier than ever before, with it holding your hand and walking you through the entire process in a super-slick interface. Corsair walked us through it in their suite, where even for me -- an enthusiast who isn't into watercooling, want to actually build a watercooled rig because this takes so much of the work out of it.

The new Corsair Hydro X custom cooling configurator will let you tell it your PC specs (things like your CPU, GPU, the case you have) and then work out the measurements for you and start preparing what it will recommend. Not every one of their cases or their competitors' cases are supported, with Corsair saying that around 85% of their own cases, and around 40% of their competitors cases are supported.

The new Hydro X Series XC7 RGB CPU water block next to the XC9 RGB. The XC7 RGB will fit onto LGA 115x sockets as well as the AM4 socket, with a nickel-plated copper cold plate and over 60 high-efficiency micro-cooling fins. RGBs are also obviously included, and they look bloody awesome. The XC9 RGB on the other hand is for LGA 2066 and STR4 sockets, with over 70 high-efficiency micro-cooling fins and the same nickel-plated copper cold plate and RGBs.
