Default Corsair Hydro H75 & H105 CPU Coolers Review Comment Thread

Review Here

I made this thread to discuss this cooler and something I've been thinking about for a little while.

These single and dual coolers are decent and all.

but who else thinks that a AIO solution with a dual and a single in series or a loop would be nice.. or even two single 120mm rads for cases like the P180 with two 120mm slots instead of a dual slot or tripple slot support.

i think something like that would be quite interesting .. like a dual 120mm rad that can be ran side by side in a dual 120mm spot like a normal h100i .. .or can be split apart to run in separate 120mm areas in a case that doesn't have 2x120mm area but you still want the cooling that comes from h100i's rad space.

They could do that or start making the AIO's with quick disconnects you can add rads too without problems. and then sell just the rad and hoses separated for cheaper add on parts.

i think it would be a good business model to use.

and those not wanting to buy a new loop for a spare pc may opt for something like that.

I have a full loop on my main rig but for my guest pc i may go for something like that .. heck they could even start adding in their own GPU block's and what not like the NZXT G10 but without the rad so you can just add it too your loop if you buy all the same brand.

personally i think these ideas are the logical next step for AIO's just surprised no ones doing it yet.

what do you guys think.

It's an interesting idea. However, you have to remember that the more complicated a system, the more points of failure there will be. The quick-disconnect concept has been discussed in the past but maintaining a proper seal over the long term with such a system would be impossible IMO.

wonder whether the pump can handle the extra load also? Is the idea of the separates now in a custom loop. AIO are good for just cpu or maybe vid card cooling albeit on a universal block in another AIO.

yea it just seems to me their is only so much you can do to the current AIO model unless they can figure out a way to add and customize they are going to run out of things to innovate in the current model.

Quick disconnects fail over time? I've never had any issues with the QDC's I've used in waterloops. most of the problems ive seen from them are from reconnecting them and disconnecting them to often perhaps I've just been lucky in the past?

If you included a quick disconnect you then have to warranty the eventual problems that they can entail. Remember this is for peeps who know zero about water cooling...but want to water cool.
"what do you mean I have to burp the system"
"what do you mean you wont cover the water damage from me disconnecting the tubes while inside the computer system (and some fluid splashing over the mobo) "
Honestly it would be a recipe for headaches and bad PR. Thats why it is unlikely to ever be made.

water cooling imho is for cool and quiet, vid cards these days see the most advantage compared to good fan/s and heatsinks vs cpu water blocks temps, more rads less fans and low speeds AIO's believe are going to be awhile catching up except for swiftech which may have the most experience of both hsf and water cooling. They were the first aftermarket performance hsf i bought and was made in canada the blocks back then for awhile, machined out of copper blocks...

True.. perhaps extended tubes - 2x120 and 1x120mm rads in a AIO loop with included GPU block / nxzt g10 style setup all in one no qdc... i think it would sell like crazy.. every pc chassis has typically a rear 120mm or 140mm fan and a 2x120mm or 2x140mm top spot.. all they would have to include is a shroud to fit to a 140mm and include 120mm rads.

the Swiftech kits sort of have customization but their pump failures are a real issue imho. but atm id say they are the closest you can get to a customizable aio.

I think the problem would be the pump is not powerful enough to run an extended loop, I have a custom loop right now but i am also looking to switch to AIO to save the hassles everytime I have to change sth with my computer
