For our Test Bench, we used a donated AMD Ryzen 3700x processor, our main requirement of this processor being that it had full PCIe 4.0 functionality. Check Amazon for AMD Ryzen 3700x CPUs.
And then a bit of Cinebench R20 to confirm that our OC was doing ok.
As I mentioned a bit earlier, this chassis will not accommodate a radiator the size of the H115i (280mm) in the top of the case. As much as I have never been a fan of having the heat pushed through the case and then out, I felt sufficient cooling was achieved by a fan pulling air out directly above, and the traditional fan out the back. This CPU cooler was just too good to pass on.
My love of Corsair liquid CPU coolers comes from their complete silence. This version of the H115i is iCue compatible and comes with two large 140mm series RGB fans that I didn’t feel looked right, considering the front of the iCue 465x case is built to accommodate three 120mm fans. I simply left the three fans on the front and put the radiator behind it.
Given respect to iCue, 16 LEDS are contained within the pump head which can be individually controlled through iCue. As well, the included fans are RGB magnetic levitation fans to increase airflow.
The Corsair Hydro H115i Platinum CPU Cooler is priced at $169 at Amazon.
