Hydro Series™ H55 Quiet CPU Cooler

The Hydro Series™ H55 is the easy cooling upgrade for your Intel CPU. The efficient, self-contained liquid cooling system is quieter and more efficient than stock CPU fans, and the compact design makes it ideal for smaller cases.

The Easy Intel CPU Performance Upgrade

Your PC will run cooler and quieter when you replace your CPU’s standard heatsink with a Hydro Series H55.

Installation is straightforward: if you can get to the back of your PC’s motherboard, you can install an H55. All you’ll need is a screwdriver.

The compact components and flexible tubing make Hydro Series H55 easy to install even if you’re cramped for space. It allows you to improve your CPU’s cooling efficiency even in most compact cases — as long as your case has a 120mm fan mount near the CPU, H55 will probably fit.

Completely self-contained

Hydro Series H55 comes pre-filled, and never needs refilling or priming.

Tool-free mounting bracket kit

The modular design makes installation simpler, and it’s compatible with Intel processors.

Low-noise, low-speed 120mm fan

The low speed and wide diameter reduces noise levels over the smaller, faster fans used on stock CPU coolers. The three-pin connector is compatible with fan controllers.

Low permeability rubber tooling

Minimal coolant evaporation helps ensure long life, and the resilient rubber offers both high flexibility and excellent leak protection.

Low-profile pump

The pump unit provides high-speed circulation without taking a lot of space. This makes installation easier, and helps improve your case’s airflow.

Latest generation micro-fin copper cold plate with pre-applied thermal compound

Copper has excellent thermal transfer characteristics, and the fin design is optimized for efficient heat exchange.

Low-profile black aluminum heat exchanger

The low-profile design reduces the airflow requirement, which helps make H55 quieter. The small size also allows for easier installation and improved compatibility, and the black finish looks great.

Socket 2011 Hydro Series CPU Cooler Mounting Guide

The new Intel® Socket 2011, used on the new X79 motherboards and the new 2nd generation Intel Core Sandy Bridge-E CPUs, has changed significantly from Socket 1366. As you can see below there are no longer the traditional holes through the PCB. There is now a metal bracket that has been tapped to accept M4 screws. Because of this the Corsair

Hydro Series H70, H80 and H100 CPU coolers all come with separate screws to mount on Socket 2011 boards.

Hydro Series H80 and H100

Included with the H80 and H100 are four standoffs that have a shorter wider end. These are for socket 2011, the shorter end screws into the metal mounting plate on the motherboard.

Socket 2011 Hydro Series CPU Cooler Mounting Guide

Install all four of the standoffs as shown below.

After installing and tightening down all four standoffs, the CPU cooler is ready to be installed.

Next the thumb nuts are installed. Tighten these in an X pattern to ensure the pressure is even, resulting in a good mount on the CPU.

Hydro Series H70 Core

The H70 Core uses the same bracket for socket 1155, 1156, 1366, and 2011. Again socket 2011 uses larger M4 screws and does not need the backplate. Make sure all of the holes on the retention ring are towards the outside (as seen below). Then install the M4 screws through these holes.

The retention ring should then be put on the H70 Core. The H70 Core cooling unit and retention ring can then be installed on the motherboard. The M4 screws will screw right into the mounting holes on the motherboard. Again tighten these in an X pattern to ensure the pressure is even resulting in a good mount on the CPU.
