Corsair H100i Elite XT watercooling kits available


At the beginning of February we received a press release from Corsair. The American brand took the opportunity to update its series of all-in-one watercooling kits. We had to wait until the beginning of March to see them arrive in stores. All variants are present, whether the Capellix model or the LCD version.

H100i Elite XT : the new Corsair AIO !

Corsair H170i Elite LCD XT

The new watercooling kits from Corsair are separated into two distinct series with on one side the Elite LCD XT and the other, the Elite Capellix XT. Of course, the purpose of the LCD models is to offer a customizable display on the top of the pump. On the other hand, the Elite Capellix will showcase their aRGB lighting.

Here, the main novelty lies in the fans operated by Corsair. The brand then swaps its old ML RGB for the AF Elite RGB. In their 120mm version, the fans operate from 550 RPM to 2100 RPM. At full speed, the airflow reaches 65.57 CFM while the static pressure rises to 2.68 mmH2O.

At 140 mm, they will be a little slower as their maximum speed peaks at 1700 RPM. However, the airflow progresses with 89 CFM at full speed while the static pressure decreases slightly: 2.00 mmH2O.

All this will cool 240 mm, 280 mm, 360 mm and 420 mm radiators. The latter benefit from an aluminum construction and a thickness of 27 mm.

For the prices, you can imagine that the LCD series will be the more expensive of the two. The price range is therefore between ~325 € in 240 mm and ~375 € in 360 mm. Note that the 420 mm it is displayed at 405 € on the Corsair store. As for the Elite Capellix XT, the bill will not be as consequent, but is still quite expensive. Count between ~220 € and ~315 € for the 420 mm!
