It’s getting cool at Corsair, as the manufacturer has introduced new cooling solutions for desktop systems with the new RGB Elite line of CPU coolers and AF Elite fans. Specifically, these are the H100i RGB ELITE, H115i RGB ELITE and H150i RGB ELITE CPU liquid coolers, which are compatible with the latest Intel and AMD sockets including LGA 1700 and AM5 and include the new AF ELITE Series fans, although these are also available separately.
The Corsair RGB Elite CPU coolers in detail
To cool down Intel and AMD CPUs including the current LGA 1700 and AM5 sockets, Corsair is launching the RGB Elite CPU coolers. The included AF ELITE PWM fans deliver powerful airflow with minimal noise thanks to CORSAIR AirGuide technology and a liquid bearing.
Radiators of the new AiO coolers are available in 240 mm, 280 mm and 360 mm sizes. Of course, a sophisticated RGB lighting should not be missing. For this, 16 individually controllable RGB LEDs are used, which can be synchronized with the rest of the system via the Corsair iCUE software. They are located on the improved and redesigned pump head of the RGB Elite series.
Thanks to the modular, tool-less mounting bracket, the CPU coolers are quick and easy to install- Quick connection is also possible via the USB Type-C power and fan harness.
High performance in the Corsair AF Elite fans
Built into the RGB Elite series are the new Corsair AF Elite fans, though they are also available for sale individually. Featuring CORSAIR’s AirGuide technology, each fan uses anti-vortex blades to direct precise, powerful airflow at hot components, both in combination with a radiator and intake or exhaust case fans.
A durable liquid bearing keeps noise levels low, while PWM control gives you precise control over fan speeds up to 1,850 rpm for 120mm and 1,600 rpm for 140mm. Zero RPM mode support allows AF ELITE fans to stop working completely at low temperatures, completely eliminating unwanted noise.
Corsair RGB Elite CPU coolers H100i RGB ELITE, H115i RGB ELITE and H150i RGB ELITE are already compatible with the next generation of sockets from the house of AMD, AM5, which uses the same cooler mount as the current AM4.
With LGA 1700, it is also ready for cooling the latest Intel 12th generation Core processors while supporting Intel sockets LGA 1200, LGA 115x, LGA 2066.
