Corsair Hydro Series H150i Pro Review

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!

Corsair has put the Hydro Series H150i Pro into a large box that measures in at roughly 47.1 cm long, 18.4 cm wide, and 14.4 cm tall. On the front is a full image of the H150i Pro with the pump illuminated in blue by the RGB LEDs. A few features are also listed on the front, such as the zero RPM profile and Corsair Link support, just to name a few. The left side details the same features and again has an image of the cooler front and center. Taking a look at the back, you will find detailed specifications and the features of the H150i Pro mentioned.

On the right side is another image of the H150i Pro. Looking at the top, a quick summary of the unit's Corsair Link support is shown. Meanwhile, the bottom details socket support as well as what is in the box.


As is the tradition when opening the box for an all-in-one liquid cooler, we are greeted by the stereotypical cardboard tray that protects the cooler. A foam sheet is also present on top. As you may have noticed in these images, the box got a bit banged up during shipping. Thankfully, the product inside is unscathed. While I feel better packaging could be used here, the fact remains that the product is safe and sound, so I can't complain too much.

Everything needed for just about every modern socket is present, including AM4.
