Corsair H115i Platinum and H100i Platinum coolers rock all of the lights

Corsair's H100i Pro, H115i Pro, and H150i Pro liquid coolers have impressed us in the TR labs with consistently award-winning performance, but their one-color LED pump heads and non-illuminated fans might leave some thinking there's not enough RGB LEDs to go around. Corsair is rectifying that fact this morning with two new closed-loop liquid coolers. The H100i RGB Platinum and H115i RGB Platinum boast rings of 16 addressable RGB LEDs on the pump head plus four multicolored diodes in each of their fan hubs to bring a full range of effects and animations from Corsair's iCUE software to life.

The H100i RGB Platinum

The H100i Platinum is a 240-mm liquid cooler with a pair of Corsair's superb ML120 RGB fans included, while the 280-mm H115i RGB Platinum steps up to a pair of 140-mm ML140 RGBs. The existing Pro coolers are mostly targeted at quiet operation, but both of the Platinum systems offer performance-oriented fan-speed ranges. The H100i Platinum can spin its fans in a range from 400 RPM to 2400 RPM, while the H115i Platinum's spinners can run anywhere from 400 RPM to 2000 RPM. Corsair's integrated fan controller can stop the fans at low load for near-silent operation at idle, too.

We have an H100i Platinum in the TR labs right now, and I've been impressed with its quiet pump and the continued excellence of its ML120 RGB fans. We're still wrapping up our review, but in the meantime, you can grab an H100i Platinum or H115i Platinum of your own today. The H100i Platinum lists for $159.99, while the H115i Platinum will carry a $169.99 suggested price. Corsair warrants both coolers for five years.

    By 2025 we’ll all be running 3000 watt power supplies — ~500 or so for the regular components, and 2500 for the light show.

    We’ll also need welder’s masks and SPF 85 if we intend to be in the same room as the system unit when it’s running.

      Soon someone will lash 6 LCD monitors together and call it an ‘RGB case’. Then someone else will lash 12 together and call it the first ‘full RGB case’ (the extra 6 are facing the inside along with he outside).

    Not enough RGB. Meh

    Executive: “So, what do we do next to increase my next quarter’s bonus…. errr, I mean our loyal customers’ enjoyment of computing products?”

    Engineer: “How about a proper header for cooling the TR4 socket?”

    Executive: “Nah, why do something useful, that would take two quarters… err I mean too long… to do anyway. I know what everyone wants, more lights than a Christmas tree on their cooler… Actually, in keeping with our brand globalisation core values realignment and synergistic program going forward – I mean more lights than a festive tree – everyone must attend awareness training about this next week.”

    Engineer: **Facepalm. So depressed can’t even be fkked calling out bingo.**

    I have a H100i, and have the RGBLED on the pump configured so that it’s usually white, but turns red if coolant temperature goes over 45C.

    No interest in RGB Fans, but they can look good in some builds and cases.

    So the RGBLED component costs an extra 45% over the standard LED one.

    How long do we have to wait until the RGBLED part is more than half the total cost?

    I don’t want an RGBLED cooler, I want a cooled RGBLED-er, damnit!

      It does cooling too?? Almost missed that!

        For now, yes. In 2019 and beyond I wouldn’t be so sure.

    Disappointing. Not even one cable with leds.

    Still not enough LEDs. I need enough to help land a 747, dangit!

      Soon a machine like that is going to need a warning label:

      DO NOT LEAVE COMPUTER UNATTENDED IN LARGE OPEN AREA. MAY ATTRACT AIRCRAFT.

    I can’t wait until they can make the whole radiator and the fan shrouds out of RGB LEDs. Then we’d be close to getting all the LEDs we really need.

      Close to perhaps, but nowhere near done.
      Cases really need to up their game, the tops and fronts only being lit by exposed fans is not enough.
      SATA devices are mostly very boring as well, perhaps those could get cages with RGB?
      Some people use wired devices, how the hell are those now lit?
      Why are chairs and desks not completely lit?

      We have a long way to go yet.

        You’re right. I should have said “close[b<]r[/b<]". There's still much to be done.

        You edited this post, but it still says “googles” instead of “goggles” 😆
