The latest generation of AIOs from Corsair offers the most compact head unit we have seen on sealed loop coolers. The ring on the outside is silver and textured, which highlights the shiny black center section which sports the Corsair name and logo. There is also a thin ring between them, and along with the name and logo, will light up once powered.

The right side of the head unit is where everything attaches to it. Black plastic swivel fittings are used to connect the braided tubing to the head unit for coolant flow. As for the wires, they all come out of the head unit between the black bottom section and the top silver section, but they can restrict how far the fittings can adjust.

At the other end of all of the wires, we find everything needed to connect the H150i PRO RGB to your PC. On the left is a three-way splitter cable to power the trio of ML-Series fans. In the middle is the SATA connector to power the fans, while a 3-pin fan connection is used to power the pump.

For starters, rather than using screws, the mounting bracket can be twisted and released from the pins to make life easier. As to the mating surface of the cold plate, we see that thermal paste has been pre-applied evenly, and with visible machine marks present, we find the base is convex, not level across its width.

On our way to view the radiator, we pulled out the tape measure to see what we are dealing with. As you can see, the wires from the head unit are all ten inches in length, while the braided tubing is nearly fifteen inches long.

The H150i PRO RGB uses a 360mm radiator, it is made of aluminum, and with the three provided fans, should be able to remove gobs of heat from the coolant. Notice too that the fins are tightly packed, and at last count, we saw twenty-six fins per inch.

Without the fans, the radiator is thin, only 27mm thick. We also find a product sticker noting the model of the cooler, shows where it is designed, where it is made, and the power needed to run the cooler.
