Not anymore. Coolit doesn't have a 140 solution provided to Partners yet, or not one that I have seen.

And as others have pointed out Astek is OEM for the new H90's 110's.

Hmm, ya, I see that now. It is indeed an Asetek mounting system on the H90 & H110. How disappointing.

As an aside, I hate this 'planned obsolescence'. Why can't Corsair just realease an H90i and a H110i with the same block/mounting system as the current H80i and H100i? Now, anyone who wants the best cooling, will have to buy an H110 this year, then next year will have to re-purchase the H110i in order to gain the benefits offered. It's ridiculous.

Its a PITA yeah, you need 3 arms sometimes....that being said, my H50 (yes I still have one) has been utterly reliable since launch day (When I got it) , and I just did an Intel Branded Unit (Maybe H60 Equiv?) and it keeps under 60 degrees for my 4.0 3770K with Prime.
So, while being a Pain it does do the job.

I do understand the grumpy part though with the i and non i models being released. That can be a pain.

Holy awards given! Seems like a very nice performing cooler. Will 140mm be the new 120mm in time, or is 120mm the end all of common fan sizes?

Remember when 80mm was the standard? LOL. I still have a Vantec Tornado with an uber high RPM on it.

I touch on that in upcoming review....it comes down to SOFTWARE. LINK software doesnt work with Asetek gear...as its (basically) made for CoolIT coolers.

If that is not enough...it is gets 'better'....but you will have to read the review to find out what the other 'great' feature of the 90/110 is that just made me soooo 'love' them.

Personally...my fav of this gen is the Kraken X40. Even with the less than optimal install. Most cases support 140 rear exhaust...no worrying about 15vs20mm spacing. Good cooling capacity. Great stock fans, decent software. Not much to not like. Just wish they made a 38mm (or thicker) rad version

Is it the fans? From pictures, they look like generic 140mm fans, not the nice SP fans that Corsair ships with the H80i.
