Corsair Launches the Hydro XC5 RGB CPU Water Block

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 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

Where Can I Learn More?

Available to purchase now for £54.99, this is around £10 less expensive than their prior XC7 design and, as such, represents a solid bargain for those on the hunt for an inexpensive CPU water block solution. – If you do, therefore, want to learn more about this design, you can check out the official Corsair product website via the link here!
