    I think this is badass. If you don't like it why bother bitching about it and frustrating yourself, if you like to bitch then bitch away, I cant stop you, maybe your mom.

    I have always liked the idea of a remote radiator/ fan system with tubes to another room for sound and look reasons, would love to see their version of an external cooling tower with perhaps dedicated cooling channels, great vid and thank you.

    My gaming rig from 5 years ago is looking more and more dinosauric.
    Though I do think my Thermaltake level 10 GT case is worth keeping.

    Trend Case Design
    1. Have a lot of Fans compatibility
    2. Choke the airflow and functionality, to cut the production cost
    3. Put extra "Premium" components or RGB, to justify The High Price

    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 4 months 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.

    the whole RGB trend is just getting ludicrous. I like small rgb details here and there, but these lightshows... nur noch zum fremdschämen!

    Just in time for my build this year too. Trying to match RGB software between parts just became a thing of the past, now that Corsair takes care of it all.

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