Here I will walk you through the installation process. It is worth noting we test using a Z97 motherboard – socket LGA 1150. The process below reflects that.
As the H115i Pro is still an Asetek design, it features the same installation process as other Hydro coolers – including the H150i Pro.
First, the backplate must be prepared – for our Z97 motherboard, the screws should be in the inner-most position.
Once the backplate has been positioned behind the motherboard, four standoffs can be screwed into the backplate.
With that done, get the two 140mm fans out of the way by screwing them onto the radiator.
Then, the pump can be mounted to the CPU and secured with four thumbscrews.
That’s it for installation – it’s very, very easy and that is much appreciated.

Lastly, touching on the RGB lighting, it is exactly the same as the H150i Pro as they have the same pump design. That means you control the lighting via Corsair Link, and users can choose between static, blink, colour pulse, colour shift, rainbow or temperature modes.
The colours themselves are bright and look very good, so no complaints there. I personally am a big fan of RGB lighting, so perhaps some RGB fans would’ve been nice, but as it is, the H115i Pro looks very good.
