Equipped with more than 50 high-density cooling fins, a full-length aluminum backplate, and 16 individually addressable RGB LEDs, the new water blocks allow enthusiasts to experience all the benefits of custom liquid cooling alongside the breakthrough performance of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30-Series graphics cards.
All CORSAIR Hydro X Series XG7 RGB GPU Water Blocks feature a total conversion design that cools all your graphics card's components including the GPU, memory, and VRMs. Precision CNC cut nickel-plated copper cold plate construction ensures high-performance cooling, with more than 50 high-density cooling fins for massive thermal transfer and surface area.

Eh, I use a lot of Corsair products and they're all pretty good.
I just stay far, far away from iCue at all costs.

They wanted it to stand out and be easier to see.

Jay revisited that. They added in a third screw in the middle to prevent that from happening. You can actually see it in the pics.

Overpriced, low-quality shit.

I didn't have an opinion on Hydro X before getting back into custom loops. Now that I've done my research and looked at Hydro X in detail I'm appalled. It's horrendous stuff made of low-quality, poorly-tested designs and it looks like cheap plastic in a lot of places because it is cheap plastic in a lot of places.

I'm assuming Hydro X is selling purely on its RGBLED credentials but you can get so much better quality for the same or less money from EK or Alphacool.

Well, I would have to agree with you there. Corsair seems to be following the same corner-cutting, quality-be-damned approach with their newer parts that many other mfgr's are adopting recently....

However, I have several of their older AIO coolers (H115i pro & 110), and they were built very well and have been running strong for over 3 years now neveranottaproblemo :)

But I also avoid i-Clue-less like the plague,,,

And whenever I get around to buying parts for my next build (spring '21), I will definitely be looking at both Alpha & EK....

Thankfully I only had to use it once to change my RAM colour and thankfully remembered it so I could quickly uninstall it again...

Just finished an Alphacool CPU+GPU twin-radiator loop for the first custom WC build in almost 15 years. It was all satisfyingly high-quality, precision-machined in tough-feeling resin/acetal.

I chose Alphacool because it was about €200 cheaper than the EK equivalent where I am and almost €400 cheaper than Hydro X. For the money Corsair is asking for Hydro X, I would expect better than injection-moulded plastics and cheap castings. EK and Alphacool are offering 100% copper/brass loops with fully CNC'd parts out of acrylic/acetal that clearly cost more to make than Hydro X. If I wanted cheap injection moulded junk from China I'd buy a $200 complete kit from AliExpress ffs!
