Overall we are very impressed with what the Corsair Hydro H75 brings to the table. This particular model works without any clever software trickery, relying on our motherboard to control the speed of the fans.
As we have come to expect from Corsair, the build quality of the unit cannot be faulted on any level. Corsair also include two high quality AF120L fans with the cooler which would cost over £20 separately. It’s clear that Corsair engineers have spent some time refining the mounting mechanism compared to previous models. This has to be the simplest mounting mechanism we have experienced, so far.
Corsair have designed the H75 to be compatible with all current platforms, both from Intel and AMD. It is clear that they expect most users to be using Intel based systems as they pre-attach the appropriate bracket to the cooler. AMD users have a little extra work during installation.
The Corsair H75 boasts impressive performance credentials, holding an excellent thermal curve even when an Intel Core i7-3930K was overclocked to 4.7 GHz. The fans were quite noisy at full speed, however they were almost silent in PWM mode. The PWM mode is fantastic for those who are looking to sustain a long-term overclock as the fans only spin up when the processor gets hot enough.
The Corsair H75 can be purchased for around £67 inc. VAT from Scan. This makes it a great alternative to the slightly more expensive H90 which the H75 usurps, both in terms of performance and compatibility.
