Back in January at CES 2020, we got a glimpse of Corsair's Capellix LED technology and it certainly piqued our interest. At the time Corsair couldn't give us details on when Capellix would be more mainstream, but now Corsair is starting to unveil its more intricate RGB ecosystem starting with a new range of AIO CPU coolers. The Corsair iCUE Elite Capellix is available in three sizes including 240, 280, and 360 mm, with very competitive pricing.

The Corsair iCue Elite Capellix includes three new models, including the H100i with a 240 mm radiator, the H115i with a 280 mm radiator, and the largest of the three, the H150i with a 360 mm radiator. Each model includes an aluminum constructed 27 mm thick radiator, with a copper split-flow cold plate and a centrifugal pump which Corsair claim operates quietly. 

Mounted onto the pump is 33 individual Capellix RGB LEDs which surround the pump itself, with some LEDs integrated around the Corsair logo. Internally, the cold plate on each model includes 128 individual micro-skived fins per inch. Included in the accessories bundle is Corsair's iCUE Commander Core with RGB lighting and PWM control for up to six fans. Touching on the fans, the H100i includes two 120 mm ML RGB PWM fans, the H115i comes with two ML140 140 mm fans, while the larger H150i has three ML120 120 mm fans. Corsair also includes mounting kits for AMD's AM4 and STR4 sockets, while the Intel kit includes support for LGA115X, LGA1200, and LGA2066.

The Corsair iCUE Elite Capellix series will be available to purchase from the 15th September, with the H100i Elite available for $150, the H115i Elite for $170, and the H150i Elite for $180. Each model also comes backed by a 5-year manufacturer's warranty.

    I mean if it's all about rgb and looking, not as good as NZXT and fractal design.
    Performance wise (thermal and acoustic), unlikely, this will beat Arctic and EK AIO based on how badly their fans perform.
    Price?? there are a lot of good products with better pricing: deepcool, silverstone, arctic, and EK aio.

    IMO, this gen looks ugly compared to last gen and even worth than what silverstone provides.

    youre smoking crack dawg if you think any other manufacturer does RGB better than Corsair. Go look up videos of capillex leds in action, theyre amazing. Reply

    Pretty sure they're talking about the physical design of the product, not the RGBs - and I'd be inclined to agree, in terms of looks it's not the best. Reply

    Aesthetic appeal differs from person to person so it is probably unfair to single out an opinion about how something looks and the accuse someone of "smoking crack dawg" because of that opinion. Besides, people purchasing these AIO kits might be more concerned with cooling capability over blinkenlights (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blinkenlights) and I think you'll find a pretty clear divide among those that simply want capability versus those that want capability and showmanship with added associated costs.

    Well there goes another potential history lesson lost to carelessness about hyperlinks and the deceased dinosaur of AT's discussion system. Let's try that again without including the closing parens:

    I'm just shocked nobody mentions that Capella is a scary object, a star :). [/inside joke] Reply

    ^^Oh boy here comes the peanut gallery with their irrelevant opinion ready to steer this ship into the abyss.

    I only commented on the RGB aspect of the product, so bringing up performance as a fact to your argument shows your inability to discern any real information from text. To take this one step further I didnt even bring up the looks up the item, merely the RGB of it. So once again, step away from the keyboard SJW, youre not needed here.

    and to reiterate my point, no one in the industry does RGB better than Corsair, period point blank.

    You missed the part about cooling performance in the above comment made by h2odddd. Reply

    Actually I didnt, I only commented on the RGB, for some reason though you think I was talking about other things besides that. Reply
