Included in the retail package is the cooler itself, baggies of mounting hardware, two 120mm 3-pin cooling fans, two in-line 3-pin voltage resistors, a dual 3-pin to single 3-pin adapter and multiple installation guides in various languages.
If you aren't familiar with the H50 that we spoke about in the introduction, it's basically a self-contained liquid cooling system for your CPU... and the H70 isn't much different. The pump is integrated into the water block that mounts on the CPU and since the system only cools the CPU, there isn't a need for a reservoir as the unit is pre-filled with distilled water and propylene glycol at the factory before shipping. Since this is a closed-loop solution, there is no maintenance required and Corsair claims that the system will last much longer than the two year warranty period.
The black aluminum radiator on the H70 is significantly thicker than the one found on the H50: 48mm versus 27mm. Additionally, the tubing on the H70 is shorter than that found on the H50: 9-10 inches for the H70 versus 11-12 inches for the H50.
More just ahead.
