Corsair’s H90 and H110 Hydro CPU Coolers Sport Beefier Radiators and Fans

It seems that Corsair didn’t get its fill of announcements at last week’s CES, as the company has just issued another. This time, it involves two new models in the company’s Hydro line of liquid CPU coolers; the H90 and H110. You may recall that in November, the company rolled-out its H80i and H100i coolers. Essentially, today’s H90 and H110 coolers follow-up by dropping Corsair Link capabilities and beefing up both the radiator and fan size.
First up, the H110. This cooler sports a double-length radiator (29mm thick) that supports dual-140mm fans (included). Thanks to the increase in size for both the rad and fans, Corsair specs the H110 with a noise-level of 35dBA, versus the H100i’s 37.68dBA.
The H90 sticks to a single-fan radiator size, but is still bumped to 140mm (27mm thick). This cooler is spec’d for the exact same sound levels as its H110 sibling, but cooling effectiveness will of course be decreased thanks to the standard size of the radiator.
Overall, sharp looking coolers, and a nice beefing-up of Corsair’s Hydro line-up. Both coolers are “immediately available”, and pricing settles in at $129.99 for the H110 and $99.99 for the H90. This is a bit strange, as the H110 is $10 more than the H100i, while the H90 is $10 less than the H80i. Premium at the high-end, but slight savings at the low-end.
