    Corsair Hydro Series/all self contained water coolers Question.

    I know the H40-H80's use a 120mm rad and the H100 is a double length 120mm rad, are there any water coolers that use a 140mm rad?

    It was just released, looks to be in stock in 1-2 weeks.

    It is getting some excellent reviews it seems.

    Ya the reason I asked was because my case is an Antec 300, and I've got a 120mm exhaust in the back of the case and a 140mm at the top and it just seems like there's more room at the top of the case then at the back over the I/O panel. I mean I could jury rig a 120 in place and stick the rad there but that seems like a waste. I'll have to wait for this Kraken to come out and see what the pricing is like. Either that or replace my Hyper 101 with a 212 with Corsair SP120's and call it a day.

    Any reason why you would opt for that type of cooling over a equal preforming/cost cutting air option?

I've never been a fan of CoolIt Systems, who make the H60/80/100 line for Corsair. The H50 and H70 were both Asetek and since Corsair still uses both companies, I suspect we'll see their equivalent branded versions of it in the near future.

    No need for low-profile ram only, case might not be deep enough, no custom bracket hassle, quiet when not under full load, and slightly better cooling for more extreme overclocking/volt modding over the air Juggernauts which are Phanteks and Noctua would spring to mind. I find them to be more aesthetically pleasing too.

    The trade off being that water-cooling solutions, even closed loop systems, are notoriously loud when running full-tilt which is often the make or break 'design'...

    Yep I had an old Coolit ALC Domino and a H80 sold both to a friend for noise reasons (hoovers) then decided on the D14 which makes them closed loops I had previous look like a cheap gimmik.

    Depends on if I buy my new case or not, my current only has a single bay 140mm top fan, the new case I'm looking at has a dual bay 140mm top. It's an Enermax Ostrog, sounds cheap but I've read the reviews on it and other then side panels fitting a little flimsy the build is solid and has nice features for a sub $50 case. I'll move the guts of my gaming rig to the Enermax and stick my server in my Antec 300, I'm tired of the hidden cabinet I stuck it in makes maintenance difficult.

    Swiftech H220 looks so awesome and it's around $140 that's really great.

    It'll be replacing a CM Hyper 101, I'll grab 2 Corsair SP120's to go with the H50. No overclocking just can't beat that price ya know.

    For the price of that h50 plus a dual SP120 kit you can pretty much afford a top of the line air cooler. The h50 isn't even that good to begin with.
