Mike Sanders / 8 months ago
Over the last few years, Corsair has been working hard to expand its range of custom-loop solutions and with the newly launched Hydro XC5 RGB CPU Water Block, there is a new product on the market that should certainly grab your attention if you’re looking for an eye-catching CPU cooling solution on a relatively reasonable budget.
Corsair Hydro XC5 RGB CPU Water Block
In something of a moderate surprise, Corsair hasn’t made too much of a fuss surrounding the launch of the XC5. Clearly representing a more budget-focused alternative to their mainstream Hydro XC7 and Hydro XC9 designs, this CPU water block undoubtedly warrants more than a little attention if you’re currently looking for something new and fancy, or perhaps are looking to dip your PC toes into the wide and varied realms of custom-loop designs.
Compatible with both Intel LGA 115x/1200 and AMD AM4 socket designs, the XC5 includes an acetal top with RGB lighting, 16 LEDs, and full customization (through their iCUE software) for 8 of the water blocks sections.
“The CORSAIR Hydro X Series XC5 RGB CPU Water Block combines premium construction, vivid RGB lighting, and extreme cooling performance to become the centerpiece of your custom cooling loop.” – Corsair
