Recently, Corsair introduced a new all-in-one watercooler from the Elite series, again of course with the “next-gen” Capellix RGB LEDs. The rather unusual thing about the H170i are the three 140mm fans and the 420mm radiator. Whether you can climb the summit of high-end water cooling systems with it, the following article will tell you. Since this is effectively an even larger version of the previously reviewed Corsair H150i ELITE CAPELLIX, much of the article will be similar.
Packaging / Scope of delivery
As usual for Corsair, the cardboard is printed all over in the colors yellow and black and has a high-quality design. On the outside of the front is a picture of the watercooler, more information and a list of specifications can be found on the back.
As with the smaller version, a multitude of bags await us after opening, which enclose the various individual parts. In addition to the warranty information, the English manual also flutters towards us.
The accessories have also remained identical, besides the mounting material for the different sockets, the Corsair Commander CORE and an alternative transparent plate for the pump block are also included. An additional tube of thermal paste is again not included.
You can connect 6x 4-pin PWM fans, 6x Corsair’s proprietary aRGB connectors and a temperature sensor to the controller. The wide data connector of the pump block is also connected here, the connection to the system is then made via an internal 9-pin USB 2.0 connector. The power supply takes over a regular SATA connector
Assembly / Installation
Corsair uses the existing backplate of the motherboard for the AM4 socket. The cooling block is simply placed on the CPU, the two eyelets are hooked into the holder and the whole thing is tightened with hand screws. If the manual is too dry for you, you can watch the video from Corsair instead:
For the AM4 socket you can’t make the installation any easier, full marks for that!
As usual, here is an overview of the technical details, more information can be found on the product page at the manufacturer.
