Intel temperature/noise ratio
On these perf/noise ratio graphs, we remind you that it’s best to be positioned as far to the bottom left of the graph as possible. For ease of reading, the leftmost point symbolizes 12V ventilation, the central point 8V ventilation and the rightmost 5V.
In terms of temperature/noise ratio, the iCUE Link H170i RGB is positioned in the middle of a mass of other kit. As it stands, with a CPU consumption of 95W, it doesn’t really stand out from an Elite LCD XT or a Kraken Elite 360.
Higher power consumption gives a better idea of what our Corsair kit of the day is capable of! Indeed, with a power consumption of 130W on our processor, we have an AIO that seriously stands out from the likes of ASUS and NZXT. In the end, its only real rival is the H170i Elite LCD XT!
Finally, at 170W, our kit of the day is in top form and clearly stands out from the competition at full speed. However, at low revs, it lags a little behind, but still has a head start over dual-fan kits!
