From the Corsair website:
Founded as Corsair Microsystems in 1994, Corsair originally developed Level 2 cache modules for OEMs. After Intel incorporated the L2 cache in the processor with the release of its Pentium Pro processor family, Corsair changed its focus to DRAM modules, primarily in the server market. In 2002, Corsair began shipping DRAM modules that were specifically designed to appeal to computer-overclocking enthusiasts. From its roots in high-performance memory, Corsair has expanded its award-winning product portfolio to include ultra-efficient power supplies, builder-friendly cases, ground-breaking CPU coolers, blazing-fast solid-state drives, and other key system components.
If you haven't heard of Corsair by now, then one of two things has happened: You have never used a custom PC or have only ever used a Mac. Otherwise, everyone else in the DIY PC space has definitely heard of or used a Corsair product at some point in time. After all, they offer or have offered at one time or another air coolers, liquid coolers, cases, power supplies, system memory, headsets, speakers, mice, keyboards, and more. They are currently a juggernaut in the industry that many look to for top-tier products, service, and support.
The popularity Corsair currently enjoys in the PC-cooling market rests entirely on the Hydro Series of products. Kicked off years ago with the H50, they have since come a long way. The H110 and H90 were solid performers during their time, and even the H80i GT I reviewed a few years or so ago proved quite adept at keeping processors cool. Fast forward to today and they still offer a massive assortment of closed-loop liquid coolers for nearly every possible price bracket.
In today's review, I cover the massive Corsair Hydro Series H150i Pro. As you may have guessed, it makes use of a 360 mm radiator. Meanwhile, the pump now supports RGB LED illumination, and while the fans are still black and gray, they have been updated to the ML Series. Overall, this new refresh certainly makes some bold changes, so let us take a closer look at it without delaying any longer!
