Corsair Hydro H55 vs H90 - worth the higher price?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi Folks, how much would cooling performance benefit from a bigger rad in an AIO ?

 

I could get the Hydro H55 wich has a 120mm rad and fan for € 72.90 while the H90 with the 140mm rad+fan would be € 96.90 - so we are talking about 24 bucks difference.

 

The case can mount a 140mm fan next to the mainboard I/O and has plenty of space inside (big tower) so thats not the problem

only place i could probably mount a 240 rad would be in the top but that space is taken by a 230mm fan wich i would like to keep there - the case is a bitfenix colossus

H55 is noisy, and many people had leaks issues (I didn't -yet-)

right - there are a lot of reviews to be found, the trick is to filter out the helpful ones :- )

 

like I seen someone complain about the H90 because of how hard it is to find a case with a 140mm mount since most cases tend to have 120mm. that is no reason for a bad review on my book.

I used a H90 for years on my PC. Now it's on the wife's gaming box. Still going strong. It's a great cooler. I changed the fan to something better, but that's not completely necessary at all.

You can get a h100i for around that price.
