Corsair decided to up the stakes in the AIO liquid cooler market and is releasing the Hydro Series H110i GT cooler, an upgraded version of the H110 that we tested a year ago. The new H110i GT appears to be a mix of the 140mm X 280mm radiator from the H110 and the block-pump assembly from the H100i. There are aesthetic improvements as well, with logo inserts on the block and radiator, lighting of the logo on the pump and sleeved tubing. Finally, it will feature Corsair Link support and will have an MSRP of $129.99.

The company also presented an adaptation of the HG10 GPU Cooling Bracket for NVIDIA GeForce GPUs. The core concept of the HG10 N780 remains unchanged, as it has been simply modified in order to be compatible with reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770, GTX 780, GTX 780 Ti, Titan and Titan Black graphics cards. The HG10 N780 is compatible with every Hydro Series AIO cooler. The HG10 N780 is compatible with every Hydro Series AIO cooler. Much like the normal version, the HG10 N780 will not only cool the GPU but the VRAM and VRMs of the latest NVIDIA cards as well. It will be available with an MSRP of $39.99.

    hi guys, there is a duplication in the second paragraph.

    Also its a little hard to tell from the first and fourth pictures but Im guessing you would need at least one slots separation to effectively use HG10 in an SLI setup?

    Due to the way the tubing is oriented, yes.

    $40 for a metal bracket? How about I take that $40 and spend it on a graphics card with a slightly better cooler, so I don't need this?

    I haven't really followed the AIO GPU coolers, but I would hope that it falls in between the nicer air coolers and a full-fledged custom water cooling setup. As long as your water cooling setup is good (can handle the heat output properly), you pretty much never hear it regardless of the stress on your GPU. I'm using a Gigabyte Windforce 780 Ti, and if I have the GPU above 75% utilization, I can definitely hear the fan. It isn't excessively loud, but it's definitely audible.

    These also present a good cost advantage over a water cooling setup. A (full) water block will usually run you about $100-120, and they're usually restricted to specific card layouts. That means you may need to switch the block out if you buy a new card. With this, you just have to switch out the bracket, which is because this AIO setup is more like GPU-only water blocks.

    Personally, I would consider this, but I probably wouldn't do it because I don't want to go through the hassle. I have some water cooling components left over, and I'd rather just pay the $100 for a block for my 780 Ti and just build a "simple" video card-only loop.

    I don't understand why noise is such an issue with GPU's.

    Sure at idle it's nice for it to be silent, but at load? I would be gaming. - And when I am gaming... My windows are vibrating from the sound system.

    There ARE graphically intensive games that feature quiet/tense moments where a loud card might be intrusive... :p And the best headphones are open so that isn't a scapegoat either!

    Nothing beats water cooling for GPU's because their TDP is so much higher than any mainstream CPU, usually 2-3x higher. That's 2-3x more heat to move. Even an overclocked i7 at 1.3v uses under 130 watts, where most high end GPU's are at least 160. Default voltage desktop CPU's are between 65-88 watts.

    However, $40 for a bracket is ridiculous. Arctic Cooling has a complete kit for $120 that includes everything, even a heatsink back plate for the memory and VRM's. A cheaper DIY option is the Kraken 20, which is often on sale for <$30, although the quality is iffy (I installed one and a thread was striped.)

    The problem with a $40 bracket is a solid copper water block costs about that much, and at that point you could make your own bracket out of a 3" piece of aluminum, a TIM pad and a drill with a 1/8" bit.

    well given that it would cost many people more money to buy the tools and materials needed to manufacture their own bracket, I consider 30-40 a fair price. I have the NZXT version (coupled with a Gelid VRM heatsink) on my reference R9 290 and it runs at 75C at 1180/1350 with undetectable noise (with a lowly Kuhler 620!!!). The VRMs and GPU at 1180/1350 (+150mv) were significantly cooler and quieter than my Asus Direct CU II 290 @ 1115/1350 +75mv.

    I only got the G10 because I got a reference card on release, I probably would not have bothered if I had gotten something like the DCU card to start with. The Corsair version appears to handle VRM cooling as well, and I actually waited a few months when they originally announced it but no one had them in stock so I went with the NZXT.

    A waterblock costs around $90.

    Unless you make it yourself. But in order to make a decent waterblock yourself, you need steady hands and a dremel is a fairly expensive tool.

    Aluminum is not metal I would ever recommend for a waterblock. Galvanic corrosion's a bitch.

    Copper or Nickel only, avoid mixing metals (except for silver + copper, copper + nickel).

    Why no 980 compatibility for the GPU bracket, this would be ideal for me.
