Corsair Memory, a leading maker of high-performance DRAM and flash products, this week announced two new cooling solutions for memory modules – liquid-based and thermo-electric – that enable even higher overclocking potential for the company’s products.

“Corsair has always led the field with the development of advanced cooling solutions for computer memory. The Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H30 and Ice Series T30 extend that technology and performance leadership, providing even higher levels of cooling power, including the world’s first sub-ambient memory cooler for enthusiasts and overclockers,” said Jim Carlton, vice president of marketing for Corsair.

The Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H30 is a high performance anodized aluminum water-block, capable of cooling up to six Dominator or Dominator GT modules. The H30 water-block utilizes 3/8” inner-diameter tubing for compatibility with the most common water-cooling setups. End-users will have to acquire water pump separately. While the liquid-cooling option is not particularly new for overclockers – OCZ Technology Group has offered such option for several years now – the interesting thing is that Corsair’s liquid-block is compatible with another innovation of the company: thermo-electric cooling system.

At the top of the range of Corsair’s cooling systems is the Cooling Ice Series T30, which is a thermo-electric cooler capable of cooling memory up to 20°C below ambient temperature. Combined with the H30 water-block, the T30 allows for higher overclocking and greater memory performance and stability. In the Corsair Lab, the T30 was found to increase memory frequency overclocking by as much as 100MHz compared to standard cooling.

Sub-ambient memory cooling has long been of interest to enthusiasts and overclockers, but the problem of water condensation, which could cause damage to system components, has previously prevented the technology from being deployed. Corsair’s Ice Series T30 solves this problem by including a sophisticated humidity sensor circuit, which monitors the humidity, ambient temperature and memory temperature to prevent the DIMMs from being cooled below the ‘dew point’ at which condensation occurs.

The new Corsair Cooling solutions are compatible with Dominator and Dominator GT modules using the DHX+ heatsink, which utilizes removable fins to allow for modular cooling options to be fitted. They are available immediately from Corsair’s Online Store and offer one year limited warranty.
