A Custom Loop LCS for a Compact PC? Corsair Floats Hydro X XD3 Pump/Reservoirby Anton Shilov on February 26, 2020 10:00 AM EST
Corsair has unveiled its new Hydro X XD3 RGB pump/reservoir combo, which is designed for building ultra-compact custom loop liquid cooling systems for smaller enthusiast-class PCs. As SFF gaming rigs are getting rather popular these days, Corsair’s pump/reservoir is poised to become a success among the target audience.
The Corsair Hydro X series XD3 RGB pump/reservoir combo measures 114 mm × 114 mm × 58 mm, allowing it to fit easily into many form-factor PC cases, such as Corsair’s own 280X. The device uses the Xylem DDC 3.2 PWM9 pump and includes standard G1/4-inch BSPP ports, a 180 ml reservoir, an integrated temperature sensor that measures coolant temperatures and allows automatic cooling control when working with an iCUE Commander Pro controller.
The XD3 device can be paired with Corsair’s CPU and GPU water blocks as well as various radiators (preferably compact ones). Like other pieces of hardware for enthusiasts from the company, the XD3 pump/reservoir has 16 addressable RGB LEDs that can be controlled using Corsair’s iCUE software.
Corsair’s Hydro X series XD3 RGB pump/reservoir combo will be available shortly. Corsair has not announced pricing at this time.

Ninhalem - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - linkI'm actually quite intrigued by this. I run a gerry-rigged Phanteks Glacier with a PWM DDC pump in the bottom of the Loque Ghost M2 SFF case, and this would a good drop in replacement if I could mount it flat. And how well it will integrate with the Aquacomputer Aquaero 6.
deil - Thursday, February 27, 2020 - linkWhen I hear "gerry-rigged" I see the guy doing vodka filed custom loop.
Still this is interesting piece, that open some options.... I just thought holes on the sides would be optional inlets/outlets. that would be better for clean looking hard tubing instead of front facing ones, if its made already for small & usefull.
MenhirMike - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - linkIf they have 2x80mm radiators, this could be useful for Threadripper in a 4U case, though I wonder if that would actually be better than Noctua's NH-U9 TR4-SP3.
rnalsation - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - linkIf you want 80mm radiators look at Alphacool.
12345 - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - linkHardwarelabs is the oem for Corsair's and they make a 58mm thick 2x80mm radiator. They make the best rads on the market.
Thud2 - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - linkI wonder if you could use 2 of these in series out the side of a Zaber Sentry?
12345 - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - linkOops, 54mm thick. http://hardwarelabs.com/nemesis/micro/m160gtx/
MenhirMike - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - linkOh, thanks, that looks neat!
Drkrieger01 - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - linkI'm not sure a dual 80mm would handle a Threadripper, at least not a high end one. Maybe a 24 core, but it'll heat soak that loop fairly quick when loaded up hard. A dual 120 (240mm) would be just fine (my 2080Ti doesn't break 52 degrees with 338W load, single 240mm rad, fans nearly at idle, EKWB block), but dual 80 might be a little shy on dissipation area
