One of the most well-known brands Corsair is getting ready to update their well-known all in one H100i liquid CPU cooler with the Corsair H100i Pro which features a new “Zero RPM fan mode”. It will use an integrated fan controller inside the pump block which will turn off the fans if the temperature of the liquid drops below a certain temperature, it will work very similar to many GPU fans and it will also turn off like many current GPU fans do. It was popularised by NVIDIA with their GTX 900 series and was later adopted by AMD and was used with their RX 400 series.
Corsair said that they believe this will help enthusiasts and gamers to overcome the biggest problem with liquid cooling, the noise level will be much lesser than other air coolers which will attract consumers to get an H100i Pro.
With RGB LEDs lighting up the pump, this product uses the Corsair iCue software. There are no RGB fans included in the box as you will get a pair of ML 120 fans included in the box for this cooler which will be used to cool the 240 mm x 120 mm radiator. Each of these fans can reach up to between 400 to 2400 RPM, when on they can also push up to 75 CFM of air through the fins with a noise of 37dBA.
The RGB pump and block looks pretty much the same as the one used in the recently updated H100i, it has the same octagon shape and the same silver finish to it. On the Intel side, the cooler will be able to support most of the modern socket types, the LGA 2066, LGA 2011, LGA 1156, LGA 1155, LGA 1150 and LGA 1151 and the AM4 on the AMD side. There has been no word about the Threadripper or the older FM2 and the AM3 socket types.
The price for the Corsair H100i Pro has not been confirmed yet but it would certainly be surprising if the price would be under $110, the price would probably be somewhere between $120 to $150. We should also expect to see the launch date soon. Stay tuned for more!
