In the end, they could find nothing to complain about given the H75's performance, low noise and reasonable price and reward it with a Gold award.

Hexus.net also gave the H75 cooler a test drive. They too were impressed and said "anyone in the market for a sub-£65 cooler that performs well and keeps relatively quiet should have the Hydro H75 on their shortlist. No bells, no whistles, just solid closed-loop cooling in a simple, convenient package." They awarded the Corsair Hydro Series H75 CPU cooler a "Recommended" award.

Over in the HID department, "Benchmark Reviews" has a look at the Corsair Raptor M45 gaming mouse. The review notes that "with the PixArt 5,000-DPI sensor, the performance of the M45 was stellar, equal to mice I’ve used that cost almost three times as much." They were also impressed with the build quality, stating that "although the Raptor series mice lack the metal chassis of the Vengeance series, the mouse nonetheless exudes a solid, quality feel."

Furthermore, they write "Corsair provides a lot of functionality in this mouse. The ability to have button macros and performance configuration handled by the driver software or directly by the mouse hardware adds a welcome degree of versatility." and award the Raptor M45 gaming mouse with their "Golden Tach Award"
