Corsair H50 CWCH50
Corsair has enjoyed a strong name among overclockers because of their system memory products, but in the past year the product line has extended to Solid State Drives, computer cases, and CPU coolers. Many of Corsairs latest cooling products call upon designs from Asetek as the OEM. The Corsair H50 (model CWCH50) utilizes the Asetek LCLC cooling unit, and offers overclockers with a silent-running cooling solution for the performance computer system.
The Corsair H50 kit Includes mounting brackets for only the Intel LGA775 and LGA1366 socket motherboards. However, brackets for AMD socket AM2 and AM3 motherboards are available for a nominal shipping and handling charge by contacting Corsair Technical Support. The Corsair H50 CWCH50 kit is currently available at FrozenCPU and NewEgg for around $90.
Corsair H50 Features
The Corsair H50 comes with pre-applied thermal compound, which spreads when contact pressure and heat are applied. The mounting system is comprised of a bolt-through retaining clip that mounts to a metal motherboard backplate, and is tightened once the waterblock is fitted beneath the retaining ring. Our installation of the CWCH50 kit on the Intel LGA1366 was very simple and straight-forward, although access to the backside of the motherboard is required.
