ASRock Z690 Aqua OC Motherboard Review Ft. Corsair’s Hydro X Series Liquid Cooling


Corsair Hydro X Series Water Cooling Equipment - Gallery

Since the ASRock Z690 Aqua OC is an all-water-cooled motherboard, we reached out to Corsair to get hands-on with their latest Hydro X series equipment. We couldn't thank Corsair enough for shipping out all the necessary components. Following is the list of equipment we received from Corsair.

We had to get our hands on a good performing and a good looking Reservoir and Corsair just happened to come out with their latest Hydro X series XD7 RGB pump and reservoir combo. It comes with a universal 360mm distribution system and as the name suggests, it features the reservoir and pumps integrated into one complete unit. The pump is a Xylem D5 PWM design that uses G1/4" port threads and operates at 4800 RPM.

The whole thing features a nice Acrylic chamber material and comes with embedded RGB LEDs and has a max draw power of 12V (30W).

Moving on, we have the Corsair Hydro X series XR7 360mm radiator which features triple 120mm fan mounts on either side for extreme cooling and comes with a 54mm thickness in a premium copper construction. Once again, the radiator is compliant with G1/4" threads.

We also got our hands on a few kits of the Hydro X series XF compression fittings which feature a high-quality brass finish.

In addition to that, Corsair was kind enough to send us their latest Hydro X Series XC7 RGB PRO CPU water block. This water block is fully compatible with the LGA 1700 socket and since we already have a water-cooled setup ready, we can also see how their implementation performs.
