    Damn, dude, those partnerships are *exactly* the ones you'd hope for. I'm impressed. Corsair knows their audience, that's for sure.

    Love it but unsure whether this will be a good go too with my Corsair 1000D case

    Could build 3 watercooled pc's the same spec for what it'd cost to cool with corsair and bitspower.
    Aesthetics are on point though. be nice to have a competitor with thermaltakes overpriced crap

    everyone in 10 years will have epileptic issues due to EVERYTHING having way too much RBG. Or at least vision issues. You all know its true.

    Ive never done water cooling with my system. Does it use liquid like the coolant like you use in your car and if it doesnt can you use engine coolant?

    Looks like the screws will make it so the GPU will not be completely covered by thermal paste little less coverage .. will it effect it??

  • Tomos Saggers
    Tomos Saggers Month ago

    Corsair hydro X looks both expensive and cheap at the same time. The colours look off and give a light piping look to it such as that from cheap 80's transformer toys. Much more impressed with cooler master and thermaltakes journeys in this arena.

    I have become quite a fan of Corsair. I currently own their 250D case, H100i cooler, and PSU. I've been thinking about upgrading my 4770K/GTX 760 4GB rig. Probably not until next year, though. But it looks like Corsair sold me on going water cooling. Thanks, Corsair! Upgrading to a Corsair mechanical keyboard soon.

    But have they fixed the issue with custom fan curves causing iCue system monitoring to crash? Literally all of this water cooling tied to iCue is useless if it crashes a few minutes after setting custom fan curves.

    Debating on whether I should hold out for a white AM4 CPU block. Granted my current one is silver from corsair, but white would match so much better with everything else on the pc.

      Before you fully buy in, just know that the commander kits are an absolute nightmare to wire when you're just dealing with fans.

    Now all Corsair needs to do is take a cue from InWin and make daisy chainnable fans so connecting a multi-fan radiator up doesn't require a crap tonne of cabling. I mean seriously, why AREN'T more companies using that idea?

    I saw a lot of people talking about the novec phase change cooling concepts at computex, but I actually think the dielectric coolant could be better than novec. You can see it here:
    or their site here:
    At first it looks more boring as it is not a phase change liquid immersion coolant, but I think that actually makes it better.
    What I want to see eventually is an immersed system that is actively refrigerated. This would allow cooling well below ambient, and even below freezing point, depending on the freezing temperature of your liquid. Normally cooling at or near 0 degrees Celsius is hard because of condensation, but in an immersed system with no air or water you cant get any condensation. So the basic design would be an immersed and sealed system with a water pump sending your immersion fluid out through a tube to some kind of radiator or heat exchanger, but that heat exchanger would be mated to the cold side of a refrigerator. You could take apart a chest freezer for the refrigeration part, or you could use a window mounted AC unit for it. A decent sized 6000 BTU window unit costs around $200 so that wouldn't be that bad. A small chest freezer is about the same. 6000 btu's is about 1800 watts so that should be able to keep up with a computer as long as it is less than 1800 watts total power draw. Then the question is just how cold do you want your evaporator coil to be. Do you want to chill down close to 0 degrees for extreme overclocking? Or just a little below ambient? After that you can add in some extras like the ability to mount your condenser unit in a window like a regular window mounted AC unit so you blow your hot air outside instead of heating up your room.
    So Linus, when are you going to tear apart a deep freezer to combine with single phase liquid immersion coolant and rig together a condensation proof refrigerated immersion liquid cooling setup for overclocking? Get on that already, chop chop. If its too much work just make Steve over at Gamers Nexus do it for you. The hair makes him infallible so I'm sure he wont need any help.
