CORSAIR Launches Hydro X Series XD7 RGB Pump/Reservoir Distribution Plate

CORSAIR, a world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, today announced the launch of a stunning new entry in the Hydro X Series: the CORSAIR Hydro X Series XD7 RGB Pump/Reservoir Combo. This unique universal 360mm distribution plate system drives your custom cooling loop with powerful coolant flow, while offering advanced loop options, a unique aesthetic that cleverly mimics the look of CORSAIR case fans, and 36 individually addressable RGB LEDs. Available in both black and white, the XD7 RGB unlocks a wealth of new cooling configurations that puts it at the heart of your custom cooling loop.

The XD7 RGB's unique distribution plate and pump system expands the possibilities of Hydro X Series custom cooling configurations. The acrylic distribution plate links to all components of your loop, powered by an integrated Xylem D5 pump. Its triple ring-shaped coolant channel design brilliantly displays your coolant through a transparent 140ml reservoir, illuminated by 36 individually addressable RGB LEDs when paired with a CORSAIR iCUE Controller (sold separately). Three pairs of strategically placed, nylon-reinforced inlet and outlet ports offer easy access for connecting a CPU water block, GPU water block, radiators, and more in a seamless high-performance cooling loop, with additional fill, drain, and temperature sensor ports for easy coolant management.
The XD7 RGB's universal mounting installs in any 360mm (3x120mm) radiator mounting points, fitting perfectly into a wide range of cases, including the CORSAIR 7000, 5000, and 4000 Series. A rubberized mounting system keeps the XD7 RGB firmly in place, reducing pump vibrations for extremely quiet operation, while an included 24-pin power supply jumper bridge lets you start the pump without powering other components, so you can safely and easily fill or replace coolant. To help you keep a watchful eye on your coolant temperatures, an included temperature sensor within the XD7 RGB delivers real-time readings from inside your cooling loop.

The CORSAIR iCUE 5000D RGB HX, available exclusively in North America, combines an XD7 RGB with an award-winning CORSAIR 5000 Series case, ready to build your next magnificent custom cooling loop. Launching alongside the XD7 RGB are two Hydro X Series components now available in a pristine white color option to match your PC's build. CORSAIR Hydro X Series XR5 Radiators in white offer high-performance cooling area to rapidly dissipate heat from your system, in sizes of 240mm, 280mm, and 360mm. To continue the white theme you can now connect the XR5 Radiator to the rest of your loop using new Satin White CORSAIR Hydro X Series XT Hardline Tubing, in both 12mm and 14mm diameters. The beautiful finish of XT Hardline Satin White Tubing creates a never-before-seen white matte look to make your custom cooling system stand out even further.

Does corsair still use that sort of proprietary 4 pin connector for their RGB? The entire PC industry should just start using what the led industry has always used for addressable LEDs, a generic 3 pin JST connector, and not that 4 minus 1= 3 pin connector which I bet Asus started just so they could reuse 4 pin 12 volt parts/design

Literally almost every aRGB product uses 3 pin, 4 pin with 1 knocked out. That's something everyone should be using, not some propietary crap only.

Hey! Finally something to use the fan mounts immediately behind glassed-off front panels for. Kind of hilarious how this is very explicitly designed to look like three fans though. I mean, they could have gone all sorts of ways with this. But apparently the "RGB fan" aesthetic scores high among the target market.

Hi,
EK kicking themselves for not thinking the fan mimic thing first lol

A) They aren't 'proprietary'. They use Molex SL-series (or Latched DuPont, if you prefer) connectors, which are readily available. They used to be used for CD-ROM audio connections, in fact ... but you have to be old to remember that.
B) When the Corsair RGB stuff was initially released, there was no Asus motherboard connector. There wasn't any kind of connector at all for computer addressable RGB. There was for analog RGB.
B.1) And yes, Asus probably used it because it was cheap and they could reuse the design. So did MSI. But it's not 'standard' - there's no consortium or standards body.
B.2) JST-SM is widely used, yes. However, JST-SM isn't quite as good for the use case as the Molex SL. It doesn't have a native wire-to-board interface (SL has both wire-to-wire and wire-to-board) and it's also quite a bit thicker than the Molex SL ... so it's harder to work with in tight spaces. That said, it is a good, durable locking connector that is, IMHO, far better than the 3+1 connector but the SL is also very durable. Other connectors (JST-PH, JST-XH) that are in use in some products aren't as durable at all.
C) Four pins is only for the fans. Strips use 3 pins. And the 4th line on the fan is what lets you configure each fan individually. You lose that with the 3+1 connector.

The fan mimic is an interesting design choice. I have to give them props for doing something different. It looks cool for sure, it just throws me off every time I look at it lol

Yeah, they do - but lately a few devices have shipped with adapters from 3 pin ARGB to corsairs connector
a few new AIO's use generic ARGB headers, but mostly they like their proprietary crap

Oh hey its devbiker! You're a pretty big name on the corsair forums so i've bumped into you a few times (the latched dupont thing rang a bell and i googled who wrote it)
My problem was that even with an adaptor cable you need ARGB/corsair controller, then to the 6 port fan splitter which used different cables and wiring. that adds up to a lot of cable mess, even if you use the commander pro to tidy it. I moved to 4 pin PWM and ARGB only, and needed 3 less SATA power connectors due to all the removed devices, let alone all the hell wiring all the extra cables in

Yeah, this only works in a gigantic case where it allows you to mount it next to the motherboard.

Or in cases with glass fronts and side intakes in front of the motherboard.
