bad news

here is a forum post by a corsair rep on the possibility of a 240mm rad version

As for performance, that Asetek unit uses a different copper contact plate than ours does, which isn't quite as high performance. Though the double radiator should make up the difference and then some.

Really that product is designed for somebody who has dual 120mm fan mounts with the right spacing for the radiator already. The number of cases out there with that type of layout are increasing, but still a tiny minority of the market, so the number of people who could install that without modding is pretty small.

We are working on some stuff, though. So keep your eyes peeled.

One factor contributing to the H50's success and high penetration rate into the target market is the usage of a single 120 rad which can be fit easily inside a case.

A big problem for a 240 rad (of a 'H60') is that very few cases have 2x120 fan openings for mounting. And, as pointed out above, if you put the 240 rad outside the case, you have to cut a new opening for the block to come in. This is a big drawback as it 'significantly' reduces its ease of mounting and user-friendliness (which is a very big selling point of the H50).

If a H50 does not satisfy and one wishes to move up but does not want a custom setup, perhaps a Swiftech H20-220 kit is the best option.
