Future Looks recommends the Hydro Series H50 CPU cooler over the CoolIT Domino
In the end, the Corsair H50 is a tough act to beat. It takes down the CoolIT Domino with ease, while managing to stay all quiet and efficient. I?d recommend it to anyone who wants a CPU cooler that can start with a whisper, and ramp up to a scream if you want it to.Full Review!

Tweaktown gives a video preview of the H50 CPU cooler
The story goes that Asetek contacted Corsair around about one year ago to re-sell one of their coolers. Instead Corsair decided to work directly with Asetek and improve on the design. The result is the new Hydro Series H50 CPU cooler.Full Review!

The Corsair Hydro Series H50 is "Golden" at PC Perspective
As shown in our quick benchmarks in the video review above, the Corsair H50 dominated over the stock Intel cooler, as you would expect. Under a full load, the H50 ran our Core i7-920 as much as 24C cooler! That is QUITE a difference and would allow for a much better chance of overclocking.Full Review!

Real World Mods gives the Hydro Series H50 CPU cooler their Editor's Choice award
The Hydro Series H50 by Corsair is certainly the best cost-effective water cooling solution in the market as we speak. Its overall cooling performance is very good and although it can't be compared with DIY watercooling kits it does exactly what it promises.Full Review!

Informaticaeasy prefers the Corsair Hydro Series H50 over the Coolit Domino
Speaking of noise, the Corsair was positively surprised by the low noise during operation was almost imperceptible as covered by the noise of the fan case (same content). Even running the fan at maximum speed (12V fixed) the noise level remained almost unchanged.Full Review!

Proclockers takes a look at the Corsair H50
"The performance surrendered by the H50 is right in the range of high performance air coolers. We saw in our test how it fared against one of Scythe’s newest coolers the Yasya, which is no slouch. With that being said the price of the H50 can be had from $55 on sale to $79 retail. At this price it is right in line with the higher end coolers when you factor their price, plus a couple of decent fans as some don't even give you even one."Full Review!

Hydro Series H50 wins Maximum PC KICK ASS! award
How about that Hydro Series™ H70 CPU cooler? Pretty exciting stuff, if you ask me. In case you missed it, Maximum PC had the very first review of the H70 and they gave it their iconic “Kick Ass!” award.
“As they did on the old test bed, the H50 and Hyper 212+ performed within a few degrees of each other, keeping the CPU at full burn nearly 32 degrees cooler than the stock heatsink. The H70 brought full-burn temps down to 51 C—five to six degrees cooler than either.”Full Review!

Corsair Hydro Series H50 CPU cooler wins "Best Water Cooling Kit of 2009"
When the Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50 CPU Cooler launched in June 2009 it promised to give consumers the power of liquid cooling in a compact, easy-to-install package at a sub $100 price point. The little liquid cooler more than impressed us in our in-depth review of it that was published back in July 2009. We also found that changing the fan configuration on the little cooler would improve performance even more, which is nice for enthusiasts and modders.Full Review!

That, combined with its plug-and-play design, increased cooling capacity and refined design make it able to handle any processor on the market and offers mainstream and enthusiast users ample overclocking headroom."Full Review!

Driver Heaven makes the H50 their preferred liquid cooling solution
...when we saw that the H50 easily outperforms the Domino in all of our tests we have to admit to being more than a little surprised. Rarely do PR and marketing claims of performance turn out to be true. In addition to this the H50 was outperforming the Domino at much lower noise levels. It is therefore great to see that the H50 actually retails for ?62/69.99, cheaper than the Domino, and as a result it becomes our preferred liquid cooling solution for Intel and AMD processors.Full Review!

The Hydro Series H50 CPU cooler wins "Top Rank" at Tweak News
Corsair's H50 liquid cooling kit has a lot going for it. Not only is this a turnkey system that requires no assembly or maintenance, it is relatively easy to install, has very good cooling performance and is priced competitively with higher-end air coolers. The design is thoughtful and the materials and workmanship seem to be quite good, and you're unlikely to find a liquid cooling system that is quicker or easier to install.Full Review!

Bit-tech reviews the Corsair H50
n the right conditions the Corsair H50 is a great performing product. It not only actually makes low cost liquid cooling functional and reliable, it's also a similar price to many high-end air coolers at 56. That's a killer combination.Full Review!

Xbit Labs finds the Hydro Series H50 CPU cooler appealing
Frankly speaking, I was pretty skeptical about Corsair H50 when I just started the review, because of all the previous experience I had with similar systems. However, I am glad that I was wrong, because this liquid-cooling system did surprise me in a very positive way and not just with one specific feature but with a combination of characteristics.Full Review!

Hexus.net recommends the Corsair Hydro Series H50
Once installed, performance is a touch better than a class-leading air cooler, the Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme, and significantly better than an Intel reference heatsink. The liquid-cooled nature of the design means it's less partial to increases in ambient temperatures, too, and that's an important consideration in the summer.Full Review!

Corsair H50 scores 8/10 and wins the "Recommended" award at LanOC Reviews
"There is no doubt about it Corsair and Asetek were at the top of their game when they introduced the H50. Since then the market has changed a little and you can now find similar setups from almost every manufacture, even Corsair has introduced a few new variations. Because of that the H50 is a little dated, but if you are looking for a dependable water cooling solution you can’t go wrong with the H50."Full Review!

Legit Reviews values the Hydro Series H50
In our test system the Corsair H50 liquid cooler, setup per Corsairs instructions, performed on par with the beloved Thermalright Ultra120 eXtreme-1366 RT, or TRUE 1366 as some like to call it. When we paired the H50 with two Noctua NF-P12 fans for a push/pull arrangement and exhausting air from the case the normal way, we found that the Corsair H50 did very well.Full Review!

OCIA gives the Hydro Series H50 CPU cooler their Approved award
The system itself is nice and compact, combining the pump and block into one unit, and having the radiator and lines sealed and pre-filled requires no setup and in fact no maintenance done by the end user. It is definitely one of the easiest ways for someone to get into a liquid cooling environment without having to learn how to assemble a system from components in the process.Full Review!
