Review Score:
270 Flares 270 Flares ×

Today we are going to look at the Corsair H90 which fits into the middle of the Hydro range, in a similar position to the H80i.  It is designed to compete directly with the new NZXT Kraken X40 (review forthcoming), boasting a 140 mm radiator to improve performance over standard 120 mm models.  We are also going to take another look at the Corsair H110, and see how it compares when cooling an Intel Core i7-3930K processor.

The Corsair Hydro H90 is designed as a high performance cooler for those who only have room for a 140 mm unit in their case.  We look forward to seeing how it compares to the H80i, which boasts a thicker radiator and an extra fan.  There are a number of cases on the market that feature 140 mm rear exhaust fan vents which are ideal candidates for this cooler.

We have already taken an in-depth look at the Corsair H110 over here so we will be focusing on the H90 in this article.

    THey are expensive, shame they hadn’t bundled better fans, their fans were always great, like Lian Li.

    How do you/they solve the Galvanic Cell problem that occurs with all copper – Aluminum cooling solutions? Are they still on the “special coolant” wagon?

    Why do you say that the H110 has 20mm fan spacing? All of the images appear to show the two 140mm fans touching with zero spacing, which is compatible with just about any case that supports dual 140′s.
