The company has just introduced its new PRO generation of performance custom cooling CPU water blocks in its Hydro X Series, with the introduction of the new XC5 RGB PRO and XC7 RGB PRO. These new CPU water blocks are ready for the new Intel LGA 1700 socket, and have 110 high-efficiency micro-cooling fings with an innovative quad-split flow design.

Corsair is using new precision-matched copper cold plates and a quad-split flow design with multiple inlet channels, which allow the new Hydro X Series XC5 RGB PRO and XC7 RGB PRO reach new levels of cooling performance. Corsair says the new CPU water blocks are up to 4C lower than the previous-gen water block.

It wouldn't be a new CPU water block if it wasn't for some RGB lighting, with Corsair using 16 RGB LEDs customizable through 8 lighting zones with Corsair using a solid top that gives a refined, minimalist design. You can of course tweak the RGB lighting through Corsair's own iCUE software, and synchronized across all Corsair iCUE devices.

Corsair's higher-end XC7 RGB PRO is a little flashier, with nickel-plated cold plates and a transparent flow chamber that will really let you show off your new Intel Core i9-12900K processor cooled beautifully. We have the same 16 RGB LEDs for lighting up your PC.
