Corsair iCUE H150i RGB Pro XT Review

How Much Does it Cost?

Unfortunately, stock of PC hardware, like many things, is really sporadic right now. However, I advise that you check for stock and pricing at Amazon UK here and Amazon US here. However, you can expect a retail price of around £140-160 here in the UK.

Overview

Corsair has a strong history and reputation to live up to with the enthusiast PC market, and clearly that’s all still intact after today’s review. The Corsair iCUE H150i RGB Pro XT may have a clunky name, but it’s certainly not a clunky product. It seems strange to see yet another Corsair AIO without RGB fans, but honestly, I think it’s the best move they’ve made in a while. They have a LOT of RGB products out there on their flagship hardware. This still has that same premium pump and radiator design but in a lot more sensible and mature aesthetic. OK, there’s RGB on the pump, but it’s more of an assent than a focus.

Build Quality

Corsair has been making coolers for many years and it shows. This is up there with the best in the AIO world, and for around £150, it’s the premium product you would expect it to be. Great quality fans, a quiet and reliable pump, a clean and well-engineered radiator, it really is the sum of its parts. Plus, their easy to use mounting system is always a welcome addition.

Performance

While the Corsair iCUE H150i RGB Pro XT made easy work of our i9-9900K, I suspect it’ll make similarly light work of even more extreme CPUs. The next generation of Intel CPUs are rumoured to run pretty toastily, plus you’ve got X299, Threadripper and other extreme solutions that require some serious cooling to get them running their best. For the extreme PC user that can’t be bothered to custom loop cool, the Corsair iCUE H150i RGB Pro XT is going to big pretty popular.

Should I Buy One?

OK, so this is a big and rather expensive cooler, it’s likely overkill for many PC users and gamers. However, with it running at zero dBa in low-load, and being ultra-quiet and efficient while gaming, I can certainly see it getting broader appeal with high-end gaming PC builds, yet it still has the power to deal with extreme workloads on workstations too. Sound like your idea of fun? Then this is the cooler for you!

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
