Hexus reports Corsair is getting ready to introduce the Hydro H50, a new water cooling solution for AMD and Intel processors. The Corsair Hydro H50 is based on a design by Asetek but features a new copper pump/cold plate.
The new liquid cooling solution is expected within a week or two for £50, which equals around $82 at the current currency exchange rate.
Corsair is keeping the finer details of the tweaks and adjustments under wraps, but the Hydro H50's implementation goes largely unchanged. The unit comes bundled with motherboard backplate-supported retention brackets that support Intel's LGA 1366 and LGA 775 sockets, and mounting systems for AMD processors will be available upon request from Corsair's website.
Using Asetek's hassle-free design, the cold plate/pump unit is mounted to the CPU, and ribbed tubing connects to a fan-assisted radiator. Doesn't get any easier, but keep in mind that there's no means of daisy-chaining other components into the loop.
