[H]ard|OCP are returning to several of the CPU coolers that they have reviewed over the past year to provide a more up to date and accurate comparison of their current performance. They have deployed a new testbench and so there are a few coolers that were tested on older hardware and so the performance they observed does not refer to current hardware. In order to give you an informed opinion on the current contenders for your cash they have replicated their Corsair Hydro H75 with comparison charts that show the performance of various coolers all on the same hardware and with current pricing. If you are already familiar with the H75 then you can jump to the last page for the overall results and price to performance measurements, those who did not read their initial review should take the time to read through the full review.
"Corsair has been in the liquid CPU cooling game for over 10 years now. As sealed system liquid CPU coolers have become the norm among hardware enthusiasts, the competition has gotten stiff to say the least. Another thing that has changed over the years is that many DIYers are going to smaller cases for their systems."
