Corsair Nautilus500 watercooling kit

Ever fancied dipping your PC's toes into the world of watercooling but were afraid to do so? If that's you, a number of companies currently sell all-in-one kits that take the most of the hard work out of setting up a watercooled system which, when compared to a traditional air-cooled setup, offer quieter running, better cooling, and the ability to concurrently cool your GPU(s), northbridge and even hard drive(s).

Corsair, a name synonymous with high-quality system memory, released its all-in-one, external HydroCool 200 watercooling (well, coolant-based) system nearly 3 years ago. The interim time has seen gradual improvements in design and performance.

Corsair has realised that the HydroCool line, whilst being relatively easy to install, still posed problems to the absolute novice user. In view of this, and in an attempt to make watercooling installation and operation as simple as possible, Corsair today releases the Nautilus500 watercooling system, which, the company claims, can be installed and operational within just 15 minutes! Read on to see if it really is as good as it sounds.
