Future retail products from CoolIT will be sold under the Corsair name, with the Corsair H60 as the first example in the lineup. But don’t panic CoolIT fans! CoolIT tells us they are still doing what they’ve been doing, but refocusing on system integrators and system builder partners. So we can expect CoolIT to continue developing and releasing new products, however they’ll become the man behind the curtain while the products are sold under Corsair brands.
Performance on the H60 (CoolIT ECOII) is reportedly improved by nearly 15% over previous versions according to internal company testing. We’ll be getting a unit for review to give it our own tests, but they claim the improvement comes from a change in flow within the block… The water enters over the center of the die, then flows to both sides returning to the radiator rather than making a straight pass in one side of the block and out the other. Additionally, the block has been refined with a finer micro-channel design with spacing that is only .150 millimeters apart. Outside of performance, they also are offering an up-sell product capable of system monitoring, fan and lighting control, and automated system reactions to predefined events you can configure. This is also assisted by an internal thermocouple embedded in the CPU block, which they report to be accurate to within .5C.
We’ll have a full review and further details, but for now I leave you with a few quick shots.
