Corsair to Release Hydro Series H5 SF Liquid Cooler

Taking into account the increasing number of cases when it’s impossible to install highly efficient air coolers on mini-ITX motherboards, Corsair has developed a universal low-profile liquid cooler. Entitled Hydro Series H5 SF, the unit shows compatibility with the majority of small-sized platforms for Intel LGA1366/115x and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3 sockets. Besides, this model is able to manage with up to 150 W of thermal power.

Corsair Hydro Series H5 SF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It employs dedicated props which hover the heatsink over the motherboard; thus, the system does not require additional space within the case. The base is made of polished copper.

The aluminum heatsink (167x40x57) is accompanied by a 120-mm fan that drags out hot air from heat-generating components. Its rotation speed varies from 1000 RPM to 1800 RPM, producing 12-24 CFM airflow. Still, the fan appears to be rather noisy with the peak levels of 36-42 dB.

Thus, each manufacturer increases the number of practically analogous products but with a slight distinction. The situation is different with LG that always tries to offer only innovative facilities.

Not 23 inch as standard IPS models have, not 24 inch as AMVA items have, but a totally unique panel! Certainly, this is not the only advantage of this display.

Design and Ergonomics

In regard to design, 24EA53VQ resembles its predecessors a lot, having a thin frame, classical look, and plastic coating. The display case is equipped with an external PSU, a dedicated VESA bracket, and W-LED that owns power-saving properties. Such …
