The Hydro H55 is a very cost-effective means for one to enter the world of water cooling.
The box comes with all that is required to complete the setup, all you need is a screw driver to secure the screws.
Here’s the cooler.
Accessories for the H55, installation was a little confusing due to the misleading drawing on the manual. I had to search Youtube / Google to get it done right.
The H55 comes bundled with a Corsair 120mm fan too.
Here’s a closer view of the unit.
The bottom portion comes pre-coated with thermal paste.
Here’s what the cooler looks like on a system.
User Experience & Benchmarks
I used the AMD A10 7850K for this benchmark. Room temperature is around 25Â°C.
CPU load was done by converting 10bit MKV video to 8bit using x264, set to -veryslow mode.
|Idle (Â°C)||Load (Â°C)|
|AMD Stock Cooler||34||56|
Not only was it cooling, it was still running silent as well. 😀 The AMD stock cooler would’ve been shrieking away once the load kicks in.
The Corsair Hydro H55 AIO cooling system is priced at around RM 240, and it’s certainly a good upgrade for anyone who wants to go for a silent, reasonably cool and neat setup.
