Introduction

Corsair has been the top notch memory manufacture since 1994, and has been bring out more and more modules since then, some being quite good and others totally kicking ass! When we are talking computers, Corsair is the chocolate coating on the cake. But today we aren't taking a look at their Memory Modules; we are testing out their New Water Cooling Kit.

Overview

Today we are looking at Corsair's New Water Cooling Kit, the Nautilus 500. This water cooler is great even if you are looking at just its features, quick release valves and external unit. It’s all quite good on paper, but does it stack up to this in real life? That’s what I am here to answer for you.


Packaging

Well it all starts with the packaging, is it protected enough to withstand a “oops I dropped it”, without getting damaged? It might just be a box of plastic to you, but no one wants their copper based water block scratched by a cat or a rock for that matter. Corsair did a simple but quite complete job of protecting all the components.
