    Corsair H90

    Hello! i have a h90 aio water cooler for my i5 7640x and for some reason a week ago the pump stoped working. Saturday i got back to my pc and decided to give it another try and i've taken the pump out and remounted it with the radiator in another position and now it works... Can you please tell me what is wrong with it? if i put it back in its original position it doesn't work and if i put it the way it is now, it works.... i find it pretty strange and i'm worried that something might happen to my pc.Also when i start the pc sometimes it gives me the water pump failure alert and after 2-3 seconds it stops as the pump works..
  2. Hi all, What are the exact dimensions of a Corsair H90? Specifically, how much space does the radiator take up on the tubing and non-tubing end caps, beyond the fan slot? I know the overall length is 170mm, but I need to know how much of that is on each end. I just bought a new video card, and I'm thinking about water-colling it (because it's noisy, and with a Kraken G12). My case is already pretty cramped, so my three options seem to be 1) I can move a bunch of stuff around, and probably not get a better result, 2) I can remove a 140mm fan from the bottom and use a Corsair H55, which should fit with room to spare, or 3) I mght be able to fit an H90 at the bottom of my case with fans pushing air into the case. But I don't have a lot of clearance on two perpendicular sides of the spot where I want to put the fan. Please help! Thank you,
  3. Having been in the cooling business for a few years now, at Corsair we’ve developed a pretty healthy lineup of liquid CPU coolers. So healthy, in fact, that it may be a little bit difficult to figure out which cooler you want or even need.So how do you figure out which cooler to buy? For starters, the larger the cooler you use, the slower you can run the fans. The slower you run the fans, the quieter the cooler is. In our testing, we found that even an H80i GT can run with its fans on their minimum setting and keep a mighty Intel Core i7-5960X (at stock speeds) under 55C. So while it’s entirely possible to have “overkill,” it’s also typically pretty safe to just buy the largest cooler we offer (that’s compatible with your case) since you will, if nothing else, reap lower noise levels. Of course, what you’re cooling plays a big part in determining which cooler you’ll need. If you’re not planning on doing any serious overclocking and not using one of AMD’s 220W processors, you can actually likely get by with even an entry-level Hydro Series H55 or H60. But different chips have different thermal characteristics and produce different amounts of heat. For example, Intel’s Haswell (non-E) and Devil’s Canyon processors can hit a heat wall where they simply can’t transfer more heat into the cooler. Getting a bigger cooler can get you lower noise levels, but if your core voltage is already at 1.35V, odds are good a beefier cooler isn’t going to get you more overclocking headroom. And it shouldn’t; that heat wall shows up at roughly the highest amount of voltage you’d want to put into an Intel chip for daily use. So even though an overclocked Core i7-4790K may only dissipate about 140W of heat – essentially where Intel’s Haswell-E processors start – characteristics of the chip itself prevent it from dissipating any more heat than that, regardless of the cooler used. Haswell-E chips, on the other hand, can dissipate as much as 300W when overclocked, but because they have lower heat density and better thermal transfer characteristics than non-E chips do, they can eke more performance out of a better cooler. With all of that information in mind, I’ve produced a “decoder ring” which should give you a clear idea of the differences between all of the coolers we have available. Note that all of our coolers support all modern Intel (LGA 1150, 1155, 1156, 2011, 2011-3) and all AMD sockets after the ancient Socket A (excluding AM1). If you have an older Intel CPU (Core 2 Duo or LGA1366), please refer to the individual cooler pages for compatibility information. About Radiator Thickness The greater the thickness of the radiator, the deeper the cooler overall and the greater its performance potential. Note that a 240mm radiator with the standard 25mm thickness requires less static pressure to cool than a 120mm radiator with <50mm thickness; though the 120mm radiator may have nearly as much surface area, greater static pressure from the fans – and thus greater noise – is required to adequately cool the radiator. About Corsair Link Any cooler with Corsair Link can be connected to a USB 2.0 header on your motherboard and have fan speed programmed through our Corsair Link software. These coolers also sport RGB-backlit pump caps that can have their color changed in Corsair Link. 120mm Coolers These coolers are typically going to be the most compatible as far as cases are concerned. If your case has a rear 120mm fan mount, you should be able to use one of these.

You should measure a minimum of 50mm from the absolute rear of the case to the CPU socket to ensure compatibility. 140mm Coolers We only have one 140mm cooler: the oft-overlooked Hydro Series H90. The H90 comes with a single 140mm PWM fan, is 25mm thick, and does not offer Corsair Link connectivity. Compatibility is also dependent upon your case having a 140mm fan mount. That said, the H90 can also offer surprisingly exceptional cooling performance. Adding a second fan to the H90 can also generate enough air pressure to let you substantially reduce the speeds of both fans, giving you great cooling without a lot of noise. 240mm Coolers Most of our cases are compatible with our 240mm coolers, but you’ll want to measure at least 55mm of clearance to mount any of them; the H105 requires an additional 15mm of clearance. This form factor has become very popular for its balance of noise and performance, and support for it is very common on modern cases. Cooler Thickness Fan(s) [attachment=41265:name] [attachment=41266:name] Hydro Series H100i 25mm Dual 120mm PWM Yes [attachment=41267:name] Hydro Series H100i GTX 25mm Dual 120mm PWM Yes [attachment=41268:name] Hydro Series H105 37mm Dual 120mm PWM No At the time of this article’s writing, the H100i is the outgoing model and being replaced by the H100i GTX, which features a newer pump and more efficient fans. The H100i GTX will consistently outperform the older H100i. Please note that the H100i GTX has a slightly thicker radiator housing that may interfere with some motherboards in our Mini-ITX cases. If you’re unsure of compatibility, please use an H100i non-GTX. If you need more performance, the H105 sacrifices some compatibility for greater surface area and can come within striking distance of a larger 280mm cooler. 280mm Coolers While this is generally the “flagship” form factor, cases which support coolers this size are much less common. That said, these are the ones you want for absolutely the best performance Corsair offers.
