...excellent performance, simple installation, and the peace of mind of a five-year warranty.
Corsair is updating its popular range of Hydro Series coolers with the addition of the H100i RGB Platinum and H115i RGB Platinum, priced at £125 and £140, respectively.
Offering much of what's good about the Hydro Series range, the coolers offer excellent performance, simple installation, and the peace of mind of a five-year warranty.
The improvements for this latest generation include an optimised cold plate, a near-silent pump and RGB fans included as standard. Like most in this arena, Corsair is putting an emphasis on illumination, and for those hoping to build a rig that will dazzle, there's now a seemingly infinite number of effects thanks to individually addressable LEDs that are easily customised via the iCUE software utility.
Bottom line: we'd prefer less cabling, but if you've invested in the Corsair ecosystem and want effortless synchronisation, the Hydro Series H115i RGB Platinum is a fine choice.
Excellent cooling performance
Noticeably quieter than older models
Addressable RGB on pump and fans
Quite a lot of cabling
Still no spare thermal paste
