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.

User Experience & Benchmarks

I used the AMD A10 7850K for this benchmark. Room temperature is around 25°C.

CPU load was done by converting 10bit MKV video to 8bit using x264, set to -veryslow mode.

  Idle (°C) Load (°C)
Corsair H55 32 44
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 Verdict

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.
