Removing everything from the cardboard casing we find that all items are intact and in perfect shape. We have the cooler itself, the two fans in cardboard sleeves, and a large bag of installation hardware. Diving deeper, we have two smaller bags containing screws and other metallic installation pieces as well as two brackets and a cable for connecting the cooler to your motherboard.
The H100i Pro RGB ships with hardware for mounting the cooler with up to four 120mm fans. That means you can purchase two additional fans and run the 240 rad cooler in push pull. The two included brackets are the back panel bracket for Intel and the pump bracket for AMD. The Intel pump bracket comes pre-installed.
Included with the H100i Pro RGB are two, non-RGB, ML120 PWM series fans. These are the same internally as the ML120 Pro fans Corsair offers, but do not come dressed with the same sound dampening frames. The kit fans are black frames with grey blades. Corsair claims they do 2400rpm at 37dBA, while generating 4.2mm-H2O of pressure, and 75 CFM of flow; not bad if true. They are 120mm X 25mm. And as the name says they are 4-pin PWM allowing for software control of their speed.
On to the cooler itself, you will find a matte black painted radiator emblazoned with the Corsair logo attached to a silver topped pump via some thick sleeved tubing.
The matte black paint on the radiator is very consistent and resistive to being scratched and marked. The silver logos on both sides add a nice touch of class. Our unit arrived with all fins in great condition. The 276mm x 27mm radiator features a dense fin per inch to make up for its lack of bulk. After measuring we find that it comes in at a tidy 24 fpi.
As mentioned, the radiator is attached to the pump by thick sleeved tubing. The sleeving is consistent and tight the whole way and attaches with swivel fittings at the pump only. We measured the tubing at 15 inches.
The small and new for 2018 pump head features a silver top with a black glossy logo right in the center. The logo and ring around the logo are backlit with RGB LEDs. Below the silver is a plastic ring that diffuses the same RGB LED lighting. On one side you will find the micro-usb used for connecting the pump to the motherboard. Opposite is the only other feature, the inlet and outlet ports for the tubing as well as the fan and pump power connectors. These are a single Sata connector for main power, a 3 pin CPU power connector, and two 4 pin PWM adapters.
The base of the pump comes preinstalled with grey TIM material. This perfectly flat application of paste is spread over a B grade finish copper cold plate. Around the outside is the pump bracket that is attached and detached easily with a twist and a snap.
