    Will be interesting to see how this performs. It would fit nicely into my rack mount workstation case, although its ATX/MATX which doesn't seem to have an option for mounting. Will be keeping an eye on this.

    Re: Corsair launches Hydro Series H5 SF low-profile liquid CPU cooler

    I think it looks almost-awesome!!!

    I say almost, because something that funky really ought to have pritty pritty lights and illuminated Corsair logos - Some people do still have windowed SFF cases, ya know!!

    Also...
    "The design allows the unit to be fitted directly atop of any Mini-ITX motherboard "
    Atop, or on top of - not atop of!!!
    /Grammar-Ranty

    But definite congratulations to Corsair on this idea... and fingers crossed that it performs well!!

    Re: Corsair launches Hydro Series H5 SF low-profile liquid CPU cooler

    I wonder how a similar non-water heat pipe setup would compare, like the shuttle I.C.E. but with a bigger heat sink. Especially considering how small the radiator on the H5 appears.

    It looks like the mounting posts for the radiator sit on a frame that attaches to the motherboard mounting holes, so it's possible that it would work on non mITX motherboards, since the mITX mounting holes are a subset of ATX. Looks like there's a chunky frame that might foul mobo components though; shame they couldn't work out a way to make it fit directly over the mounting holes so it was more generic.

    Yeah I had a look at my motherboard and I think it might actually work as I have screws in all the same places, I think my CPU is a bit further away from the I/O though so it will be interesting to see just how flexible the thing actually is.

    Edit - Upon inspection of the bracket in the pictures again, this will never fit with the boxed bracket with most mATX/ATX boards

    I was thinking similar - that is a very small radiator - I wonder how noisy the fan is to get a 150w capacity...
    With that said, If I put my CPU under this; I could re-purpose my h100i to GPU duties and still keep it all in my PC-Q36, which is rather tempting!

    I don't think that thing would work anywhere near as well as your h100i, it just doesn't seem to have enough surface area for anything other than basic cooling.

    Going on Corsair's page about it they claim using a i7-4790x @84w the H5 hit 69c while both Intel's stock HS and a premium SFF air cooler failed (100c).
    I didn't know Intel and other SFF coolers were so bad.

    If that's without an overclock I'd be very sceptical of the claim. Intel wouldn't supply a cooler incapable of cooling the chip at stock settings.

    I wasn't sure the undecided smiley conveyed my skepticism when i used it, guess i have my answer now.
    I wish we had a itchy beard smiley or something similar.

    Probably not very; it's a 120mm blower which is larger than you get on most graphics cards; 150W isn't really that high a TDP; and the radiator is fairly deep with a good fin density, which probably means more heat exchange surface than most mid-range GPU heatsinks. So it's likely to be quieter than a well-engineered mid-range GPU blower-style coolers. Given there's plenty of quiet GPUs out there at well over 200W, cooling 150W really doesn't seem like much of a stretch.

    It's not just about cooler heat dissipation, it's about recirculation of heated air and ventilation within the case. I'd be happy to accept that a closed-loop water system could manage a lower stable CPU temperature in non-ideal conditions ... water has a much higher heat capacity than most metals, so you actually get a lot of heat dissipation just from having the liquid in the system.
