PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
The H70 supports all modern processors from AMD and Intel and promises great cooling and quiet operation. For bolt-in convenience, users will need a case with a 120mm rear fan mount. While not mentioned in the spec, the box intimates that Corsair has teamed up with the OEM liquid cooling mavens at Asetek on the H70 project. As I mentioned earlier, the H70 comes with two 120mm fans and corsair includes some step-down adapters to control fan noise and a Y-adapter to power both fans from a single header.
For the sake of comparison, here's the H50 (left) next to the new H70. As you can see, the H70's radiator is almost twice as thick and mounts two fans in a push/pull configuration. Note also that the H70 has a much more compact pump/block assembly and the tubing runs are also a bit shorter, which should translate into an easier install. We'll see.
