As is the way of things, Corsair has just about gotten their whole line of AiO coolers updated. If you’ve not already read our previous reviews of the H150i Pro and H115i Pro, check those out. In summary they are high performance coolers with great new looks and RGB effects. Today we are going to round out the group and finally add the recently released H100i Pro RGB to our stable. How will this 240mm cooler stack up against the rest of the family, how will it perform compared to the competition? Follow along as we put the H100i Pro RGB through its paces.

Special thanks to Corsair for providing the H100i Pro RGB for review!

Packaging
You’ll find the same great packaging holds the H100i Pro that also holds the other two coolers in this series. With a predominately matte black and yellow color scheme the design is modern and colorful and ships wrapped in protective cellophane.

The front of the box features a large photo of the cooler in the center forward of a nice fluid swath of rainbow color. Along the bottom you’ll find the four main features of the cooler next to the product name. You will also find that the cooler comes with a 5 year guarantee from Corsair. Pretty impressive for a piece of hardware with as many potential failure points. The back of the box has simple technical diagrams with the basic dimensions of the cooler as well es expanded explanations for each of the four main features. On the right side you will find the technical specifications. Everything on the back panel is repeated in six different languages.

What would be the top and bottom of the box has on one a description of Corsair Link, Corsair’s control software. Interesting is that this software has actually been discontinued and replaced by iCUE a more collective version of control software. The bottom then has socket compatibility info as well as the requirements to run Corsair Link. Finally you’ll find a section with ‘In The Box’ information.

The ends of the box both have a matte yellow background with one side again displaying the key features and another look at the cooler, the other simply has a graphic.

Flipping the top open you will find a slim sheet of foam laid over the top of a cardboard enclosure. Everything within is fully wrapped in plastic while the fans are shipped in cardboard sleeves.
