Corsair H100i Platinum RGB CPU Cooler Review

Overall, the Corsair H100i Platinum RGB is pretty astounding. Cooling performance is some of the best we’ve seen on our new test setup, and although not the quietest cooler tested, results are still pretty remarkable on this front with the H100i sitting in the middle of the pack.

The H100i’s cooling performance was so impressive that I thought something was wrong, but with further testing and re-testing, the H100i proved to be one of the best AIO coolers we have tested. Further customization of fan profiles will likely bring noise levels down, with only a small sacrifice in performance. As there is so much flexibility within the iCUE software it would be relatively simple to fine-tune temperature against noise, to your preference.


The RGB lighting is great and the ML pro fans look amazing. We like the subdued appearance of the the block and the software support is faultless. The Corsair IQ software is a massive feather in the cap, and it really is a great ecosystem. Compared to some other AIO 240mm coolers the £124.99 asking price may seem a little on the high end, but you do get a whopping amount of value for your money. The icing on the cake is that the build quality is also stellar.

The Corsair H100i Platinum RGB is genuinely impressive considering the great performance, and massive lighting flexibility. If you want total control of a cooler both for temperatures, and aesthetics, it’s definitely comes very recommended.

The Corsair H100i Platinum RGB is currently available directly from Corsair for £124.99 inc. VAT HERE.

Pros

  • Super easy installation.
  • Brilliant customizable RGB lighting backed up by great software.
  • Great performance and temperatures even when overclocking.

Cons

  • Not the quietest cooler tested.
  • The CPU block cover could be a little more open, to improve illumination further.

KitGuru says: If you are considering an AIO liquid cooler that offers a massive range of configurable lighting and great cooling performance the H100i Platinum RGB is an educated purchase. At £124.99 it is a little more expensive than some other RGB 240mm coolers – however the ease of installation, clean aesthetic, brilliant lighting, and amazing performance make the Corsair H100i Platinum RGB one of the finest coolers we have tested.
