Corsair Hydro Series H75 AIO Liquid CPU Cooler $82.39 Delivered @ Amazon AU

40

Cheaper than H60, and a perfect alternative for those recently bought Aurora R10, looking to upgrade CPU cooler with AIO liquid cooler.

The main difference to H60 is it has an extra fan for push-pull configuration.

Same price at Mwave if one prefers. https://www.mwave.com.au/product/corsair-hydro-series-h75-v2...

    A 120mm for $82? hard pass. 120mm aios in general underperform due to low surface area.

    I don't know much about water cooling except all the buying guides say don't buy 120mm, 240mm is the sweet spot

    •  

      Some cases would be limited with the space, so it depends on your set-up.

    •  

      any decent air cooler and case fan set up should outperform a 120mm AIO, so the only real suitable use is where you are space limited.
      (or you simply prefer the look of a system with the AIO for whatever reason)

        2 of the best air cooler under $50 are the Deepcool Gammaxx 400 or the 'Snowman'. I've had both and for a mid-level PC, they are fantastic.

        Had a Snowman on a Ryzen 5 2600.
        Stock cooler AIDA64 - 88c
        Snowman - 62c

        I'd say the Gammaxx 400 performs a smidgen better.

    I'd be careful. Recently upgraded my R10 with H60 and there isn't a lot of space in the chassis for a push pull config. PS, buy some 120ML Pro or Noctua to avoid any BIOS errors.

    •  

      There seems to be a few success stories with H75 too. At this price, might be worth considering over H65

      •  

        The fan that comes with it is fine, no bios error. Just plug it into the "CPU fan" socket, not the one for water cooling.

        I have used CM fan for the AIO, and both Noctua and Arctic fans in the case. All without bios error trigger.

          Hmm you are meant to plug the radiator fan into the top fan, then the pump plug into pump fan + SATA.

            @fidelio: Cnt remember, but def not the fan socket for the OEM AIO as it will through out some funny error.

            @fidelio: generally speaking if you get a bios fan error, its probably because your CPU fan pin isn't plugged in.

            its quite common for a user to plug the AIO fan into the AIO_Fan header instead of using the CPU_Fan header

            the motherboard by default will always expect a fan connected to the CPU_Fan header, thats why if you don't use it you get a warning message.

            so you generally plug the AIO fan into it, otherwise you can simply disable the CPU_Fan header doing a check in the bios - which port you use doesn't really matter, they both supply 12v and you can control the headers in the bios regardless in regards to fan speed (not that you would ever really want to run the AIO fan at a reduced speed anyway, unless its for audible reasons - but in that case just get better quality fans)

              @mooncake111: You don't get the error with the config I've listed, not sure why googleyahoo69 was getting the error. He's done something wrong.

    An air cooler at this same price will significantly outperform this and outlast this. 120mm AIO's are a waste of money.

      Colour it RGB and that’s pretty much what everyone is going for.

    •  

      Sounds like you are not a target market for a 120mm AIO. Some people don't have a choice but to go 120mm due to case limitation, and can't get a decent air cooler either.

        really if your case is limiting your cooling… get a better case.

        •  

          The post was for those who bought the pre-built Alienware Aurora R10. So your point is not relevant.

          •  

            @fidelio: Can that case not fit an air cooler?

            •  

              @brimmy11: Only a low profile one, as the height is limited by the psu mechanism.

      Smaller AIOs still have a place especially for the ITX crowds. So while niche, but not completely useless.

      •  

        What ITX cases? I’m pretty up to speed on the current ITX fads (both my PC’s are ITX). I cant think of a current day ITX case where a 120mm AIO makes sense.

        You also have to consider the AIO is going to hamper your air flow, if you chuck this in your ITX case you’re not going to be moving heat out from the case very efficiently and the rest of your components will suffer.

          Silverstone SG05, SG13.

          They are probably niche old examples, and yes you can do with a fan cooler, but depends on the PSU and CPU choices. The PSU choice will dictate how much room you have for the CPU cooler, while CPU choice decides how much heat you'd like the cooler to be able to handle.

          In the SG05/13 example, the AIO fan would also be the intake fan.
