...the Pro units take a more balanced approach and are comfortably the most refined Hydro Series coolers produced to date.
Corsair has revamped its range of Hydro Series all-in-one liquid coolers with the launch of the 360mm H150i Pro and 280mm H115i Pro.
Responding to user feedback and designed to be quieter than previous models, the new duo are shipped with low-noise ML Series fans, and a redesigned coldplate and pump.
Shifting the focus away from pure performance, the Pro units take a more balanced approach and are comfortably the most refined Hydro Series coolers produced to date. Gone is the initial whirr, pump noise has been reduced significantly, and if you choose to utilise the Link software utility, a new Zero RPM fan mode can make the cooler practically silent.
Is there still room for improvement? Well, the USB cable is a bit of an eyesore, and when you consider the lofty £165 price tag, you might have expected RGB fans and some spare thermal paste to be included as part of the bundle.
Bottom line: there are more affordable options in this segment, but if you need a hassle-free 360mm liquid cooler that's both quiet and capable, the Hydro Series H150i Pro RGB is worth a shout.
