Corsair H100i PRO RGB CPU Cooler
The head unit of the H100i PRO RGB is square-ish, with cut corners, and a bright silver ring around the outside. In the center, the cover is shiny and black, and while it is evident that the Corsair name and logo will be illuminated, there is also a band that can be seen on the right and across the top, which illuminates as well. The right side of the block is where the tubing is attached and where the wires emanate, to help with a clean looking installation.
At the end of all of the leads coming from the head unit, we find that there is a SATA power lead for the RGB LEDs, pump, and fan power, as the pair of 4-pin fan leads come from the head unit. The last connection is for RPM sensing and gets plugged into the CPU fan header on the motherboard.
Under the head unit, we see the machined copper cold plate with the pre-applied TIM on it. Looking beyond that, we know the metal mounting bracket is twist-locked onto the head unit, making it much easier to swap out the default Intel bracket for AMD usage.
We removed the thermal paste for two reasons. One is because we use the same paste on all coolers, but more importantly, we want to look at the mating surface. We can see that it is machined across the entire surface, but what you cannot tell without a straight edge on it, is that the base is convex to aid with pressure when mounting it.
Moving away from the head unit, we pulled out the tape measure. We find that the cables coming from the head unit are all ten inches in length. We also see that the sleeved tubing is fifteen inches from the head unit to the radiator.
Both sides of the radiator display the Corsair name and logo with an embossed chromed sticker so that no matter how it is installed, it is easy to see who made the product when the head unit is not in view. This image also shows the 27mm thickness of the frame, but the radiator fins, as in any AIO, are thinner.
The end of the radiator opposite the end where the tubing connects is where you will find the product sticker. It not only shows the CW-9060033-WW model number but also shows this unit will draw 15 Watts at maximum.
Looking through the fins and getting a good look at the rest of the radiator, we have mounti9ng holes for 120mm fans on the frame, while the rest of the view is of the high FPI arrangement of fins. Randomly choosing a spot to count, we came up with twenty-three fins in the inch we measured.
