With the Hydro H100i RGB Platinum, Corsair adds another all-in-one watercooler with 240mm radiator to its portfolio. In this case you get an AiO with 240 millimeter aluminium radiator and two beautiful ML120 PRO RGB PWM fans for 137 Euro. Compared to the previous version, the overall design has been improved and the integration into the vendor's iCUE software helps in configuring the the lighting modes and effects. We're more than just curious to see if Corsair is capable of convincing us with this new cooler.

Today we have the pleasure to check Corsair's latest Hydro H100i RGB Platinum closed-loop cooler, which, according to Corsair, is compatible even with medium size cases thanks to the fact that it measures 276mm in length and it's just 27mm thick. Apart from that there is kink-resistant tubing, allowing for tight bends. On top of that the overall build quality is good and the entire product looks nice and clean. The most unique feature is certainly the RGB lightning of the pump and the fans whereas the effects and colors can be changed using Corsair's iCUE software. Talking about the fans there are two 120 mm PWM fans with gray fan blades and a black frame. The mounting system supports all recent Intel and AMD socket CPUs.

As you can see from the pictures, the manufacturing quality of the Hydro H100i RGB Platinum is a good level. It's not exceptional but considering it's a 137-Euro-produt it's definitely adequate and we'd have a hard time finding reasons to complain. The radiator measures 276 x 27 mm and is made from aluminium. The cooler itself features a copper coldplate with pre-applied thermal compound. To be a bit more precise the dimensions of the Hydro H100i RGB Platinum are 276 x 120 mm x 27mm (W x L x H). In the case of the fans Corsair decided to pair this cooler with their really nice looking ML120 PRO RGB air benders.
