Long-time enthusiast will remember the Corsair Hydro H50. It was one of the first closed-loop water coolers on the market and it changed the game. Though the H50 was popular at the time of its release, it was a bit of a head-scratcher, because its performance and installation weren't ideal. Consumers bought it up though, and AIO water coolers were off and running. That was Corsair's first entry into the market, however, and things have gotten considerably better since. It seems as if each new AIO liquid-cooler released by Corsair has improved on their original designs, so much so that closed loop coolers are performing at levels approaching much more expensive custom water cooling loops.
In the decade since the Corsair H50 was first launched, Corsair has released a plethora of AIO water coolers, with the H100i being among the latest and greatest. The only thing missing from the original H100i in the eyes of some enthusiasts, however, was some color, RGB to be specific. It's 2019, and like it or not RGB is everywhere, so to appease enthusiasts craving a bit of additional RGB action, Corsair has released an RGB version of its popular H100i cooler that glows for days and offers strong performance to boot...

The Corsair H100i RGB Platinum comes with installation brackets for all the latest sockets. This means it'll support Intel LGA 115x, 1366, 2011, 2011-3, and 2066 sockets, as well as AMD FM1, FM2, AM2, AM3, AM4, and TR4 sockets -- basically it'll work with any processor you're likely to buy today. We tested the cooler on an AMD AM4 socket with a Ryzen 5 processor. Overall, we found the installation process to be relatively easy for the most part, but when all was said and done, there was quite a bit of pressure being applied to the motherboard, causing it to slightly bend. The reason for this is because Corsair decided to use the stock AM4 retention brackets instead of a custom bracket to secure the cooling block. We suspect Corsair may update their installation hardware at some point for AM4, but for now keep this in mind.
Along with mounting brackets for all of those sockets, you also get all the screws you need to install the two fans that come with the H100i RGB Platinum, as well as the mounting hardware to secure the radiator to your case.
One of the first things you'll noticed about the Corsair H100i Platinum is the number of cables coming off the cooling block and fans. Previous models had fewer cables, because the only thing that needed power were the fan and pump. Now all of the RGB lights need power and control as well, so there are more cables. This means you'll have to work a little harder at cable management to make that case look clean, but nothing worthwhile comes easy.
The fans included with the H100i RGB are Corsair ML PRO Series RGB magnetic levitation PWM fans. These fans have been tuned to deliver optimal airflow and static pressure for the best cooling in this setup. Each fan has four individual RGB lights on them, while the cooling block ha 16 RGB lights. That means there is a grand total of 24 RGB LEDs that you can control with Corsair iCUE software. The fans operate between 400 and 2400 RPM, so they can either be extremely silent, or relatively audible because they're moving enough air to cool a processor that's running well beyond its stock frequency and voltage levels. As for noise, the fans are rated at 37 dBA. In a typical home or office, fan noise don't really become noticeable until around 25 to 30 dBA, so these fans can be considered relatively quiet, even at full throttle.
All the RGB goodness is controlled via Corsair's iCUE software.
The iCUE software give you the ability to chose from pre-loaded settings for both the cooling and RGB lighting.There's a good number of presets to chose from, but if you prefer you can do your own thing and create custom color profiles and change the fans speed all from within the app as well.
Now that we have the Corsair H100i RGB Platinum in our system and ready to cool, let's see just what type of performance we can expect from one of Corsair's latest and greatest all-in-ones...
Today we will solve the big dilemma, which of the two Corsair coffee machines is better: Corsair H100i v2 vs Corsair H115i PRO. We will compare their features, functions, specifications, and point out the differences between Corsair H100i v2 and Corsair H115i RGB Platinum PRO liquid CPU coolers.
In this day and age, thermal efficiency is paramount to attain peak system performance.

Wide Processor Compatibility
Corsair H100i v2 and H115i RGB PLATINUM have outstanding processor compatibility. Both AIO liquid coolers are compatible with both Intel and AMD processors. However, there is a minor difference in one specific motherboard socket. If you own an AM4 motherboard (Ryzen processors), the H100i v2 does not support your motherboard out of the box. You need to purchase bracket CW-8960046 to be compatible with AM4 sockets for an additional $5. Otherwise, you should still check whether your processor is compatible. If your processor is a recent model, it most likely is.
Corsair is also known for its high-quality products. The H100i v2 and H115i RGB PLATINUM are also made out of high-quality, rugged materials. Regarding the cold plate (the surface directly in contact with your processor), it is made out of copper ensuring excellent heat transfer from your processor down to the radiator. Speaking of the radiator, the radiator of both AIO liquid coolers is made out of lightweight yet durable aluminum. Lastly, the tubing that transfers heated liquid away from the copper slug to the radiator is made out of Low-Permeation Rubber covered with black sleeving for a more muted and professional look.
Long Limited Warranty
When a product is backed by a long warranty, you know that this product can last you a long time because the company has the confidence to give you a long warranty. Corsair is confident enough to give you 5 long years of warranty. So, as a consumer, this gives you a clue that both the H100i v2 and H115i RGB PLATINUM have long-lasting quality.
Differences between Corsair H100i v2 vs Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM PRO
AIO Liquid Cooler Dimensions
The first obvious difference between these AIO coolers is their dimensions. Dimensions in coolers, in general, can help with thermal performance. The larger the surface area, the faster heat can dissipate.
Corsair H100i v2
The first dimension you should look out for is its cold plate dimensions. If this dimension is not large enough to span over your processor, thermals will turn out to be horrible. The Corsair H100 v2 has a rather circular copper cold plate with a diameter of around 50mm. In terms of its radiator, the H100i v2 has a smaller radiator that can support only two 120mm fans. Therefore, you can expect its thermals to run hotter. Lastly, its tubing has a length of 300mm which is long enough for most PC builds. However, you can run into some compatibility issues if you own a full-tower PC.
Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM
The Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM, on the other hand, has a square copper cold plate that is perfect for most processors. This cold plate has a dimension of 56mm by 56mm. It has a larger surface area than the H100i v2 which helps for a better heat transfer. When it comes to its radiator, the H115i can support up to two 140mm fans. These larger fans can draw more airflow that can result in better thermal performance. Moreover, it has a longer tubing with a length of 380mm reducing the chance of incompatibility.
The Winner Is- Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM
The included fans in an AIO liquid cooler are a major part of its overall thermal performance. The fans draw out the heat from the liquid inside the AIO.
Corsair H100i v2
As mentioned earlier, the H100i v2 can only accommodate two 120mm fans. While it is a good middle ground between size and performance, you can still expect a sizable temperature decrease using the H100i v2. The included fans belong to Corsair’s SP series fans which can give you high static pressure for more efficient liquid cooling. It can run faster due to its higher spin frequency of 2435 RPM. Although it has a higher RPM, it draws less airflow at a little over 70 CFM. Moreover, it runs louder at 37.7 dBA due to this high RPM. If RGB is your thing, the fans included do not have RGB lighting but the Corsair branding on the housing of the cold plate does.
Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM
Aside from having a larger radiator, the H115i can accommodate the larger 140mm fans. Its fans are from Corsair’s ML PRO RGB series. ML stands for magnetic levitation which dramatically reduces friction resulting in a quieter operation. It has RGB, so, if that is your thing, you are lucky. The fans that come with the H115i, although it has a lower maximum RPM, can create more airflow of 97 CFM.
The Winner Is- Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM
The cooling performance is what everyone is after in an AIO liquid cooler. Let’s see how these AIO liquid coolers perform.
Corsair H100i v2
Although it is smaller, the Corsair H100i v2 can keep up with its competitor in terms of thermal performance. Take note that the fan speed in our test run at 1530 RPM which is not its maximum fan speed. At 1530 RPM, the idle temperature is around 6.6 degrees Celsius. However, it ramped up to 42.0 degrees Celsius when tested against a workload. These numbers are certainly respectable for a dual 120mm AIO liquid cooler.
Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM
The Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM has a larger radiator and fans. So, it should perform better, right? Well, of course. Even when the fans are running at just 1200 RPM, the idle temperature records at 5.5 degrees which is 1.1 whole degrees less than the H100i v2. Moreover, it only reached an average of 37.9 degrees Celsius when the bench PC is subjected to load (it is running still at 1200 RPM). It is already expected from a larger AIO liquid cooler to perform remarkably better.
The Winner Is- Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM

Which Corsair Liquid CPU Cooler to Buy?
The Corsair H100i v2 and H115i RGB PLATINUM are great performers considering their prices. If you have a lower budget for an AIO liquid cooler, go for the Corsair H100i v2. However, take note that it can get louder at times (particularly when subject to loads). If you have more money for an AIO liquid cooler, the performance the H115i gives is unbeatable. Their price difference is not that high, anyway.
Pros: This cooling loop does two things well. It does an excellent job of cooling and it's able to do it quietly. Previously I had a Hyper 212 Evo air cooler. I was pleased with its performance, especially given what I paid for it. On a dellidded 4790K at 4.8 GHz 1.365v, I could run Prime95 on Small FFT setting for about an hour and never exceed a little over 80C. I could run longer, but I was testing the cooler, not the overclock. With this cooler I was able to do the same, but after an hour the max temp I saw was around 70C. For those who don't know, Prime95 is a power virus workload torture test for CPUs and RAM that stresses them to the limit for as long as the program is running. It's the most foolproof way to test your overclock and your coolers capability. For CPU intensive games like Grand Theft Auto 5, temps typically ranged in the 50s to low 60s. Typically, closed loop style coolers like this one can't really compete with a properly built custom liquid cooling setup. Although, for the price, you can't argue with the results. Closed loop systems like this fill what used to be a void in the market between air coolers and a full fledged custom loop. Custom loops, while their performance is unarguably the best you can get without going to more exotic forms of cooling like thermal-electric coolers or phase change setups, their cost often exceeds the $300 mark. While also requiring a level of skill to install that is above the average casual gamers capability or desire. However, closed loop systems like this one, have advanced to the point where you can use them for reasonably heavy overclocking. Especially if your CPU is delidded. When you start getting into high voltage and extreme overclocking, they can't keep up with the heat the CPUs generate. Well, they might be able to if you added a second set of ML series fans for a push-pull configuration and ran the fans and pump at 100% whenever you're gaming or doing anything CPU intensive. Although, that is more where a high end custom loop would be the better choice. But for 99% of the people out there, one of these types of closed loop coolers will be sufficient cooling. Especially if all you're doing is gaming. Normally, the only time CPU usage stays maxed out for extended periods is when benchmarking, torture testing and sometimes gaming or if you're into running encoding software. I imagine that this cooler, which is very well built for what it costs, could keep most CPUs cool enough for 24/7 use, especially if you're not overclocking. The fans that come with this cooler are phenomenal. The Corsair ML series of Magnetic Levitation fans are, in my opinion, the best fans you can get for your PC. They're extremely efficient and reliable. If you're using them to cool a radiator, it doesn't get much better. Even at their lowest speed, they have an effective static pressure capable of moving enough air flow to provide adequate cooling for ordinary work loads. In the lower RPM range, which is around 400-800, the ML fans are near silent. If you want a great fan that is both silent and capable, these can do that. They're really all around great fans. At max speed, they're really loud. I mean, I've had fans that spin up much faster, move a lot more air and get much louder. But that style of fan is not really suited for anything outside of an Industrial setting. So even though the ML fans at max RPMs are loud, they also move a lot more air and have an incredible capability to provide cooling beyond that of any traditional PC fan design. They're also designed to last much longer than pretty much any other fan with an ordinary bearing. Where the Corsair ML fans really shine though is in their medium RPM range. You can get exceptional air flow with a moderate amount of fan noise that is completely tolerable for the majority of people. So regardless of where your tastes lie, or more accurately, how much fan noise can you tolerate without going crazy. The Corsair ML fan is pretty much the perfect fan. If you're really irritated by fan noise, you can disable the fans with silent mode and they won't spin up until your coolant temperature reaches 45C. Although, Corsair ML fans on their own are very expensive if you want to add another set for a push-pull configuration. These days, I only use Corsair fans in my gaming PC. Of those, I have 12 ML series fans. I run them at their minimum setting so I can get good air flow while also being quiet as possible. I used to run them around 40%, which is the threshold where the noise starts to become noticeable. But I've found I can run them at minimum without compromising my temperatures. The ML fans in this kit are rated for 75 CFM and 4.2 mm/H2O fan static pressure compared the previous series SP series fans that came with the v2 and Pro which had less air flow, but a slightly higher static pressure. The early version of the H100i's fans performed at 62.74 CFM and 3.1 mm/H2O static pressure, furthermore they were obnoxiously loud.
Cons: The radiator's thickness is kinda thin, 27mm including the shroud. The radiator itself takes up more space inside of the shroud than it did on the H100i and H100i V2, which is good. But the downside to that is that you'll have to be more careful when installing fans. It's not difficult to get overly ambitious when tightening fan bolts and end up damaging your radiator. Possibly resulting in a catastrophic leak. I've actually done that before. I was able to save the radiator using some epoxy to seal up the hole I punched in it and it worked fine afterwards. But that was on a custom loop and it didn't have any liquid inside of it. In this case, if you punch a hole in the radiator, fluid will leak out and filling the loop can be tricky. I've seen some tutorials on YouTube showing how to do it. A properly designed radiator should have bolt stoppers under any bolt anchor points to prevent that from happening. The bolts provided are pretty much the perfect length, so it's probably not really a risk unless you overtighten your bolts. But if you add a second set of fans, that's where it can get sketchy. You're also gonna have to provide your own bolts, because this kit only comes with the ones it needs for the 2 included fans. I don't know exactly what kind of thermal paste this cooler comes with. I only ever use paste I'm sure about. I've found that thermal paste is one of the least expensive and most effective ways to keep your components cool. I immediately tear down any graphics cards I buy and reapply better thermal paste before I install them. These days I use Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut. It will give you at least a few degrees advantage over the factory applied paste. For those who don't know, the best way I've found to clean up thermal paste is to use rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. Simply dip the Q-tip in the rubbing alcohol, without getting it too saturated, and wipe clean the thermal paste. When it's cleaned up, take a clean Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol and go over the area at least once more to ensure its completely clean. The tubing is pretty rigid. There is some flexibility, but not much. The tubing does need to be rigid to a degree to prevent kinking. However, for a system where you can't modify anything, I expected the tubing to be a little easier to work with. Mounting one of these closed loop coolers can be problematic. Even more so than a custom loop, because you can't modify the length of your tubing. Without being able to modify the tubing, you're forced to mount it within a certain radius of your CPU and it must be inside your case. Unless you leave the side cover off, you modify your case in some way or have an open style case. Until recent years, there hasn't been anywhere to mount a radiator this big. A single 120mm or 140mm can easily be mounted in any case fan bay. But in the past couple years, case designs have adapted to allow a spot to mount 240mm or larger radiators internally. If your case wasn't designed with liquid cooling in mind you'll be forced to find some custom way of mounting it. Case modding is one of my favorite things about building PCs. The easiest way to mount one of these is by using zip ties. Just anchor your zip tie around something in your case and secure it to one of the bolts you used to mount the 120mm fans to your radiator. That's what I have done in the past. It doesn't really matter what position your radiator is mounted in, whether it's horizontal or vertical. But to be safe you should try to keep the radiator above the pump, which is mounted to the water block. So that gravity will feed coolant to your pump and prevent it from pumping air. Which could burn it up over time. These closed loop systems are filled so that there is a bit of air in them. But, after a couple years, some of that liquid could evaporate, leaving more air in your system. Letting gravity do some of the work for you should help to extend the life of your pump and might improve overall flow rate as well. You might think I'm crazy, but from personal experience I know that a sealed system will need coolant added at some point. Even if there aren't any leaks or vents for air to get in.
Overall Review: There are also some other significant upgrades with the Platinum series cooler. The pump is an exclusive design by CoolIT that has a significant improvement in flow with less restriction and an improved cooling plate design. The radiator also has a higher fin density, making it more efficient at the same size. Overall a pretty significant boost in performance vs previous models. You can customize your coolers settings and RGB lighting effects using the Corsair Link software. The fans also have RGB vs just the pump housing on other models. You can monitor coolant temps, customize fan and pump speeds or set up cooling profiles and change the RGB lighting mode or colors. The Corsair Link software is pretty convenient if you also have their other peripherals. I have Corsair RGB mice, keyboard, mouse pad and wireless headset. I can control all of those and this cooler using the Corsair Link software. It's a lot easier to us than the older version of their software and you can link all your devices together with the same lighting scheme. This kit comes with the hardware to fit to most modern mother boards. For Intel, it supports all the 115x, 2011 and 2066 boards. Nothing earlier than that out of the box. For AMD it supports Everything from AM2 to TR4. Although I certainly wouldn't use one of these coolers with a Thread Ripper CPU and I'd be careful if using a Skylake X CPU as well. Mounting this cooler to your CPU is really easy. No different than most after market air coolers. Although, with the type of screws it uses to clamp the water block to the CPU, it is really easy to damage your CPU socket by over tightening. With Intel sockets anyway. AMD sockets are much more user friendly. If you over tighten it, you risk bending contact pins in your socket. If you bend a pin, or several pins, you'll be in trouble. It is possible to bend pins back into place, but it is extremely difficult. I accidentally bent some pins on my x58 board when I over tightened my water block. I grabbed a flash light, a magnifying glass and a knife with a fine point. The knife probably isn't the best tool for this job, but it worked for me. All you can do is find the bent pins and try to very gently bend them back into place. My x58 Classified advertised to have 300% more gold in the CPU socket than a standard board, so the pins were far more susceptible to bending. A lot of people reported this problem in the forums online, so it's not just me. This cooler has nicely braided lines that appear much nicer than the plain black hosing you normally get with one of these closed loop coolers. The contact point on the water block is also nicely polished and smooth. I recently came across an air cooler that had a really nasty uneven finish, which has given me a greater appreciation for coolers that have a properly finished surface. You can kind of hear the pump running while the system is on. It's louder on boot, but that's normal. This version of the H100i comes with Corsair's newest version of RGB lighting. It can be rather stunning. The fans light up and their pump housing/water block assembly has lighting as well. Their older style of RGB was just a bunch of obvious LEDs that changed colors. But the RGB they have now is really nice. You can't see any exposed LEDs and the lighting effects are evenly distributed. You can fully customize the RGB effects. You can set it to match your PCs color scheme, to switch between colors, to flash and more. But my favorite effect has always been the rainbow wave. Which is usually the default RGB mode on Corsair stuff. You can adjust the speed of the RGB effects, I typically prefer to have them going slow. I think that when the colors are changing too fast it can be distracting. But RGB can definitely make your PC stand out. The room my PC is in is constantly glowing a variety of colors, it has earned me a lot of compliments. I typically don't like to give 5 Eggs unless a product is really outstanding. Well the H100i Platinum is an awesome product. It has great fans, an improved radiator and pump, the gorgeous RGB lighting and the price isn't bad for the performance you're getting. Although, if you have the room in your case, you should definitely consider the H115i Platinum. It's going to be better for not much more money.

Anna's bra was removed and Johnny cut her dress lengthwise. And spread it to the sides, admiring the naked body of Anna. Finally, he began to cut the dress into to plunge it all into your lustful and wet mouth to the very testicles. I felt his cock swell in my mouth, how it turns into a man's instrument, and experienced additional pleasure from it.
