Corsair is launching a low-profile liquid CPU cooler

We often see Corsair’s line of all-in-one liquid coolers used in PC builds these days, and while you can cram one in to a Mini-ITX case, it isn’t always the ideal or easiest solution. However, Corsair is looking to make things easier on those with small form factor rigs, with a low profile CPU cooler, the H5 SF. The cooler could be seen as far back as Computex this year as part of the Bulldog range of pre-built systems.

Now though, Corsair is launching it as a standalone product with up to 150W of thermal dissipation and a blow style fan that pushes air across the compactly designed radiator.

The idea behind this is to offer a liquid cooler that can fit on to any mini-ITX motherboard without the need for external fan mounts or brackets. The extra cooling should also help with overclocking in such a small rig. The CPU block uses a copper plate for heat transfer, while the 120mm blower-style fan will take care of the rest.

Here is the full list of specifications from Corsair:

  • Socket Support: AMD: AM2, AM3, FM1, FM2, Intel LGA: 115X, 1366
  • Cold Plate Material: Copper
  • Radiator Material: Aluminum
  • Radiator dimensions: 167mm x 40mm x 57mm
  • Total cooler height: 84mm
  • Fan dimensions: 120mm x 32mm
  • Fan speed: 1000 – 1800 RPM
  • Fan airflow: 12 – 24 CFM
  • Fan pressure: 2.5 – 8.3 mmH2O
  • Fan noise level: 36 – 42 dB(A)
  • Tubing: Low-Permeability Tubing
  • Warranty: Five years

KitGuru Says: This should make liquid cooling a little easier in those tiny ITX cases. Do any of you use a small form-factor rig? Would you use Corsair’s low-profile cooler?
