    I like the fact that the whole thing is pre-built for you so you don't have to faf around with all the different parts of a water cooling-setup (with associated leaks). You can just fit it and you're done.

    Re: Forum Exclusive: Win a Corsair Hydro Series cooler

    great comp guys

    What I've always liked about the hydro series is the ease of use and the flexibility of the size/space, because the radiator doesn't have to be mounted where the cpu socket is, so it can be used in cases where cpu socket space makes it impossible to fit a large cpu cooler.


    EDIT: Plus I want to get my grubby mitts on one but cannot justify the expenditure.

    I never tried a Corsair Hydro series cooler! I like them because they are easy to mount and in no time you get a water cooled system!

    Re: Forum Exclusive: Win a Corsair Hydro Series cooler

    I think the ease of install is good, but the winner for me is how I can direct the airflow through my case and around my chipsets without a large heatsink getting in the way. :-)

    Quiet and effective, what's not to love? The reviews look good, so I think it's going to be time for me to switch away from air cooling soon. Plus it leaves lots of space on the motherboard to make building easy.

    Re: Forum Exclusive: Win a Corsair Hydro Series cooler

    The best thing about the Corsair Hydro series is that they can often be fitted into htpc/low profile cases in place of a low profile heatsink, yet they perform as well as, or even better than, top end air coolers

    Re: Forum Exclusive: Win a Corsair Hydro Series cooler

    I like that the Hydro series lets "noobs" (like me ) dip their toe into water-cooling without having to get involved with the more complex high end gear - I'd love to try one of these out
