Corsair Hydro X custom lineup revealed

Several parts spotted

Almost one year ago, during Computex 2017, Corsair has been teasing products suggesting that the company was going to enter the custom water cooling market. Things remained silent until today, when Corsair unveiled several parts during Paris Games Week.



In December, EK Waterblocks CEO Mark Tanko and CTO Niko Tivadar have joined Corsair in high-level roles. While we haven't any information on what Tanko and Tivadar are doing at the company, it seems only natural that they are working on some kind of custom liquid cooling product under Corsair's flag. During the Paris Games Week, the France-based LDLC decided to show off an entire system filled with Corsair Hydro X parts.

The system is built inside what appears to be a Carbide SPEC-06 RGB case. Inside the case we can spot an MSI Z390 MEG motherboard paired with NVIDIA RTX graphics card. On the CPU has been installed a water block that sports a design rather similar to latest Hydro Platinum series. The top is made out acrylic with several addressable RGB LEDs integrated. The NVIDIA RTX graphics card unveils a full cover waterblock with Corsair logo on the side. Like the CPU block, the GPU block sports an acrylic top with metal cover.

At the moment isn't clear when Corsair will announce the Hydro X series. Since the CES is coming up, we expect to see the announcement during next months. Furthermore since Corsair has unified all the RGB products under one software, we think that this new series will be compatible with iCUE software as well.
