...the Corsair H100i Pro RGB is quiet, easy to get along with and comfortably able to cool an overclocked CPU.
One of the biggest complaints aimed at earlier Hydro Series coolers was noise. Responding to customer feedback, the 2018 Pro RGB Series rectifies earlier shortcomings through a new-and-improved pump and magnetic levitation fans that combine to create a noticeably quieter user experience.
Now available in a popular 240mm flavour, the £110 H100i Pro RGB offers good performance in a widely compatible form factor, customisable pump lighting that synchronises with other Corsair gear via iCUE, simple installation, and the peace of mind of a five-year warranty.
This is, in our estimation, Corsair's best 240mm solution to date, yet having led the way in all-in-one solutions, the manufacturer is now playing catch-up to a growing range of fashionable competitors whose pump designs are more imaginative.
Bottom line: it might not be the prettiest, but the Corsair H100i Pro RGB is quiet, easy to get along with and comfortably able to cool an overclocked CPU.

Noticeably quieter than older models
