Corsair is well known for their high performance memory, and they're now taking it one step further, into the world of watercooling, thus the expectations are high. Corsair has developed the Hydrocool 200 in cooperation with Harrison Thermal Systems (Delphi Automotive Products). Harrison Thermal Systems at Delphi Automotive Products has been in the cooling business for over 90 years, so they should definitely know what they're talking about.
The Hydrocool 200 watercooler
The Hydrocool 200 is a product in the same category as the Koolance Exos -- an external unit containing a pump, radiator reservoir, and fan. The hoses have Quick-connect fittings that seal themselves, which obviously is a major advantage when mounting and moving your computer.
The Hydrocool 200 is powered by your computer via a controller card. The controller measures the temperature on top of the waterblock, typically 15C lower than the processor core temperature, and is displayed in the front of the cooling unit. Should the temperature rise to or above a variable preset number, the controller will shut down the system.
