How would you change the Corsair Hydro Series coolers? - Page 6

Here's your chance to tell us how to modify them and what kinds of things you'd like to see in future versions. I'm the Product Manager for Cases, Cooling, and PSUs, so at the end of the day, I'm the guy in charge of saying it gets X feature or Y feature. This is your direct line to product development.

Thanks in advance!

I think they should come with the screws for push/pull, rubber tubing simmilar to the tubing used on the Kuhler series. I think there should be a new version of the H100 also, with maybe a little stronger pump and bigger rad. I also think maybe a 140rad or 320rad version would be good. GPU cooling would be good also, but i don't know how realistic that really is.

My biggest complaint is with the H80 and H100 and fan control. They don't use PWM ... and imo that three speed thing is totally useless, basically trying to get the user to buy the "Corsair Link" thing.
Another thing i've read a LOT about is deffective/doa H80s and H100s.... my H80 was basically falling apart out of the box. The QC needs to be better.

Some way to determine the liquid level within the system, sometimes wonder if mine is filled properly.

Different tubing would be nice.

Maybe different colors on the system as a whole like white or red.

Possibly a clear cpu block with leds.

Sleeve any and all cables on the pump or fans, in different colors to match what you offer for the psu's

CorsairGeorge - I created and OC account just because of this thread smile.gif

I just bought a Corsair 650D and would have REALLY liked to pair it with an H100 but instead I went with an RX240 rad, D5 pump, dual bay res.

Why? Simply because in my eyes the Hydro series right now is only as good as good air cooling. I wanted a little more cooling and also wanted to keep the option of cooling my GPU later on down the line.

The Corsair Hydro series definitely has a lot going for it. I love the pump-on-block and lack of res. I'm even using the H60 on my HTPC right now as I type this thumb.gif It seriously took 5 min to install!

In my opinion you shouldn't change anything about the current Hydro series. I think Corsair should simply add an enthusiast-geared model for those that want cooler temps and/or the option of upgrading later. Most of the options have already been listed before - better rads that allow lower fan speeds, better pumps (that don't crap out or make noise), ability to refill system (would probably help the pump situation too), list could go on and on but I'm sure if your going to come out with a new Hydro cooler it will be worth taking a look at.

They are already pretty good as far as closed loop for CPU goes. Perhaps, as mentioned a 140 mm thin (~25 mm) rad with quiet fan and pump would have a niche although I dont know how large.

However, perhaps a preassembled modular system might be able to offer best of the two worlds (custom loop vs. closed loop) - so people who just want something simple to strap on their CPU at reasonable price can have it with an option for upgrading or expanding later on. As it stands currently modular kits go for something around ~150$ with a reservoir (Rasa, upcoming cooler master one).

For example, Alphacool DC-LT pump (or similar) thats straped (~15$) on top of CPU block (~30$) and small (~ 50 ml) reservoir on top of that (~5$) plus some tubing (~ 10$) and a copper rad (~30$..45$ depending on size) [altogehter ~90 .. 110$) that comes prefilled and ready to be installed would be able to undercut the competition in the section of modular closed loops, especially so if combined with your currently very good 5 year warranty.

As far as your current offerings go - dunno what it would do to a price but would it be feasible to use copper/brass cores on rads eliminating the danger of galvanic corrosion ?

I would make the H100 Expandable that way if you need more RAD space on your cooler for say a HEAVY oced 3930k then you could and i would improve the pump so it has more power and a higher flow rate (and make it no knock)

all the above are cool thumb.gif
with copper fin rads, and add a combo gpu waterblock. could it be possible?
post #58 of 63
I've got the H60 in an mitx case. Here are some of my suggestions. Most of them have been mentioned already.

-less nosier pump (combined with the air going through the rad, its noisier that my aircooled setup.
-softer tubing
-additional fan screws for puhl/pull
-maybe redesign the 240 rad inlet/outlet to allow it to fit into smaller cases.
-spring loaded mounting screws

other suggestions not related to the actual product.
-provide an actual product dimensions template that people can print out to test fit in their systems. (something like: http://www.mnpctech.com/Radiator_Grill_Templates.html)
-place a piece of plastic to protect the fins in the packaging. (the backplate dented some fins during transport)

Something just entered my mind...

What about a 240 and 120 slim (should fit in most of your cases and ATX cases with a top exhaust).

Paint skills:
587

To reduce clutter with tubes, getting two rads that are parallel on each entry/exit point will be needed.

More paint skillz...
479

I think you could also reduce the amount of fins needed per inch for noise reduction (a la SR1, RX etc).

This maybe without the leds just a really nice quality looking cpu block.
