If anything, I would hope Corsair made the rads bigger to use at least a 120mm fan instead of 92mm.

Interesting, although the smaller 92mm form factor is probably going to limit performance in anything that a good air heatsink couldn't also handle.

First model should be 545LC, I think.

Default not for OCing

Theses are for making quite computers, My DIY system runs cool with my CPU oced to high speed (i5 750@4.4 1.35v) with only temps that only increase 7C over idle Ive never seen 40C, you can bet these setups you will be seeing temps of 50C+. I just cannot see these working any better then I high end air cooled heatpipe cooler just quieter.

As much as I applaud the recent consumer-market trends for water cooling (e.g. systems like Corsair's 50 and 70), why do these manufacturers create cool, cost-effective setups and then f*ck the product up at the last moment by using an obsolete, small 92mm fan setup?!

So to quote myself here:

It's meant for servers, not your freakin desktops. Sure you can use it for a desktop computer, but it's not what it was brought to life for.

However, you have servers rammed into small spaces, and with no room for 'high end' Air coolers. As those need to be towers and real estate is at a premium in those setups. Which is why as well the Cooler uses 92mm fans.

Much better option than the blowers we see on server CPU's.
