Liquid CPU Cooler
Corsair iCUE H100i RGB Pro XT, 240mm Radiator, Dual 120mm PWM Fans, Software Control, Liquid CPU Cooler
Liquid CPU Cooler great product. You have to specifically search for this model number in order to find it on Amazon. This is the latest iteration of their cooler providing an update to the RGB LEDs on the pump/cooling block that goes on the processor.
You can individually change the color of the LEDs on the block and have other swirling patterns. You also have full control of the AIO through iCUE when it comes to fan speed and pump monitoring. Amazon might be trying to push old inventory which is why this doesn’t show up if you go to the Corsair manufacturer amazon link.
This cooler is awesome. I have a Ryzen R9 3900X and with all cores boosted it does not exceed 55C at full load.
The configuration the manufacturer recommends is to have them pull air into the case through the radiator. Make sure that depending on if your goal is to have a positive or negative pressured case that you exhaust appropriately.
I have mine mounted at the top of the case and as positively pressured since I have a husky and hair and dirt can be a problem getting into the case if I didn’t have it configured this way.
Lessons Learned: My LEDs were not initially working when I installed the cooler. The internal USB connection is for pump and LED control only and does not power the LEDs. The pump and fans are powered off of a single SATA power connector.
For ease of installation and cable management, I utilized one of the open Molex connections that was available from a drive power run and used a Molex to SATA power adapter.
The Fans and Pump are most likely powered off of the 12V rail. With this configuration, you only have 5V and 12V available and not 3.3V. I ran a direct SATA connection from my power supply and the LEDs are fully functioning now as it proved they run off the 3.3V rail.
So make sure to use an actual SATA power connection and no molex to SATA power adapters to power this AIO.Promised Review by Gregory D
