While its design may not have changed all that much, the new Hydro Series H105 looks like a significant improvement over its predecessor, the H100.

Corsair has announced the all-in-one Hydro Series™ H105 dual-fan 240mm liquid CPU cooler. The H105 is Corsair’s first Hydro Series cooler to be equipped with a 38mm thick 240mm radiator, greatly increasing radiator surface area and improving heat dissipation. Fitted with a pair of high-performance SP120L PWM 120mm fans designed to balance static pressure and noise levels, the H105 pushes liquid cooling performance to the next level in the 240mm category.
The H105 also benefits from Corsair’s new tool-free CPU mounting block, called by press “the simplest mounting mechanism we have experienced*” and making installation easier than ever. The low-profile CPU cooling block also includes an LED backlit logo and replaceable color ring, allowing PC enthusiasts to co-ordinate their CPU cooler to match their other system components.
Connecting the cooling block and 38mm-deep 240mm radiator are a pair of sealed and kink-resistant rubber tubes, with a high-quality on-board ceramic-bearing pump providing reliable flow and heat transfer away from the CPU. As with all Hydro Series CPU coolers, the H105 is completely self-contained, requires no maintenance or filling and is supported by a five year warranty.
By retaining the popular 240mm radiator mount, the H105 is also compatible with the vast majority of cases on the market, meaning enthusiasts needn’t worry about having to compromise on their choice when it comes to case or CPU cooling.
“For 240mm radiators, we’ve had a lot of requests for a thicker version with more surface area to improve cooling performance. Now those requests have been answered,” said George Makris, Product Manager for Cases and Cooling at Corsair.
The H105 supports a wide range of Intel and AMD CPU sockets and is available immediately for $119.99.
