Hydro Series H5 SF Low-Profile Liquid ITX CPU Cooler


When building a small form factor PC cooling is usually something that is limited, fans have not much room to breathe and heats is not exhausted fast enough for high end CPUs to run low temperatures, especially when there are other hot components in your PC. 

When Corsair was designing their Small form factor Bulldog Living Room PC they needed to address this problem, so they developed a smaller CPU water cooler than they ever had before, offering liquid cooled temperatures in a form factor that is not much larger than an Intel CPU cooler. 



What is great about this design is that it is designed to directly output the heat from your CPU outside your case, directing it directly above your motherboards IO shield, which is typically where smaller cases have vents to the outside, preventing the build up of hot air inside the case.

While your temperatures will not be as cool as a larger liquid cooler, it will certainly perform much better than anything else that is the same size, offering great cooling performance for future ITX builders to utilize.
