The Intel Core i9-13900K CPU has a total of 24 cores (8 P/16 E) with a base speed of 3.0GHz and 32MB L2/36MB L3 cache which can be set to 5.8GHz with ease. It has onboard Intel UHD 770 Graphics and is a LGA 1700 socket based on the Intel 600 and 700 chipsets.
Checking Amazon, we see pricing of $599 which is rather refreshing, considering the price of previous high end CPUs.
Both PassMark and AIDA64 provided some really good results with respect to benchmark performance as we can see here:
We have been pretty consistent with our choice of Corsair Liquid CPUs historically. It would be very hard to find one of our Test Benches with anything else. The reason is of course they are completely silent, do the job and they are very reliable.
The iCUE H150i Capellix comes with a 360mm radiator and we needed that because this system will be pushed using the latest Intel 13th Gen chip. The 360 was a given, although a bit overboard for this immediate build. It comes with three 120mm Corsair ML RGB magnetic levitation fans that are completely silent with speeds between 400 and 2400RPM, along with the Corsair iCUE Commander Core Smart RGB Lighting and Fan Controller.
We aren’t aware if you have noticed but there are several fans in this system that are controlled through iCUE. The pump head of the unit is RGB and lit by 33 ultra-bright CAPELLIX RGB LEDs and there are two different face plates for the pump head that show this CPU cooler off very well. Better yet, fans only spin when necessary. When the system is cool they will come to a stop as they are not needed.
Checking Amazon, we see the Corsair H150i Capellix Liquid CPU cooler priced at $199.
The Corsair white LL120 3 pack are shown against the front wall in this picture and these fans have 48 individually addressable RGB LEDS that are controlled with the included Corsair Lighting Node Pro which enables iCUE to control both fan speed and LEDs.
Have we mentioned that the iCUE software also has several pre-programmed LED effects ready to show off all of your iCUE gear? Checking Amazon, we can only find availability of the black 3 pack of the LL120s at this fan and there price is $89.
