Based on a size that supports any mini-ITX motherboard and with a low height of just 84mm, the new Corsair Hydro Series H5 SF is obviously aimed at SFF and HTPC builds. It also packs quite a punch for its size as it can dissipate up to 150W of heat.
The Hydro H5 SF liquid CPU cooler is based on a copper cold plate with pre-applied thermal compound, a 167x57x40mm aluminum radiator, low permeability tubing and a 120x37mm blower fan that should, according to Corsair, cool both the radiator as well as surrounding components on the motherboard, like the VRM and chipset. The fan spins between 1000 and 1800 RPM, provides between 12 and 24 CFM of airflow and produces between 36 and 42 dBA of noise.
According to Corsair, the new Hybrid Series H5 SF low-profile liquid CPU cooler is compatible with Corsair's Obsidian Series 250D, Carbide Series Air 240 and Graphite Series 380T cases as well as Corsair's Bulldog 4K barebone, for which the Hydro series H5 SF liquid cooler was actually made. According to Corsair's product page, it supports AMD AM2, AM3, FM1 and FM2 sockets as well as Intel's LGA115X and LGA1366 sockets.
The Hydro Series H5 SF low-profile liquid CPU cooler should be available immediately with a suggested retail price of €79.99/US $79.99 exc. tax and backed by a five-year warranty.
