Corsair H150i PRO RGB AIO CPU Cooler Review

Corsair has just released its largest All-In-One (AIO) cooler to date. With a 360mm radiator, RGB Frag Harder Disco Lights, and magnetic levitation fans, it seems to be hitting all the popular checkboxes that are required nowadays when it comes to just about any product. Our primary concern is how well it cools a very hot overclocked CPU.

The H150i Pro arrived in a very stylish cardboard box with the familiar molded cardboard inner compartment, and thick foam on top preventing things from bouncing around. Everything fits very nicely and was in perfect condition apon delivery.

    There isn't too much in the box with the H150i PRO RGB, you get the unit itself, the mounting hardware for the compatible sockets, three ML Series PWM 120mm fans, a USB cable for Corsair LINK, as well as your warranty and instruction manuals. Thermal compound was pre-applied to the heatsink, and one nice touch is Corsair includes enough fan screws to do push/pull if you wish to add the three additional fans needed for that configuration.

    You can see the wires coming out of the pump in detail here, SATA power, Tach, and the fan connections. The baseplate of the unit is nicely machined with only very fine machining marks remaining, and is completely flat. You can also see the retention mechanism for the mounting plates consisting of the four locking tabs. The LEDs on the pump not only light the Corsair logo like in previous coolers, but also has a band that goes around the pump providing a little ambient light to surrounding components, a nice touch in our opinion.

    Installation & Contact

    Installation was very simple on our AM4 system. The H150i PRO comes with the Intel mount pre-attached and is replaced by a small turn to unlock the Intel mount and installing the AMD mount. The H150i PRO uses the stock AM4 backplate and the cooler mounts with two clips and thumbscrews so no access is needed to the back of the motherboard, which could be a big plus if you are using this unit to replace a stock cooler. It is by far one of the easiest installations we have ever done for an AIO CPU cooler. The hoses are some of the nicest we've ever seen on an AIO cooler, as these are very flexible, and nicely sleeved. Power is provided to the pump via a SATA connector, there is also a tach wire to go to your motherboard CPU header, and the fans are also connected to the pump via a ribbon cable with three 4-pin fan plugs. Add the USB cable for Corsair LINK and you have quite a few wires coming out of your pump to deal with.
