Product Showcase



In the kit bundle, everything is carefully packed and padded before being bundled safely in the box. So let's take a look inside to see what we'll discover and how much effort we'll have to put in to putting this kit together.



When you open the package, you'll notice the liquid cooling unit, which is comprised of the radiator, fan, tubing, and pump/cooling block, among other components. Of course, the majority of them are pre-assembled and ready to use. Basically, you'll need to install or attach the fans, as well as a bracket to hold the device in place. Nevertheless, because you are visiting, we will walk you through the full installation procedure over the next few pages.



You'll spot a backplate that supports a wide variety of CPU sockets. Intel LGA 1700, 115x, 1366, 2011, 2066, and AMD AM2, AM3, AM4, FM1, FM2 based processors can be used in combination with this cooler. Lovely to see is support for Threadripper (SP3). Included are:

  • CORSAIR Elite LCD RGB Liquid CPU Cooler
  • Mounting kit for all modern CPU sockets
  • ML Series PWM 140mm RGB high-performance fans (2000rpm)
  • iCUE Node commander
  • Fan and radiator mounting screws
  • Thermal compound (pre-applied)
  • Quick Start Guide

You'll spot the cooling unit consisting of the radiator assembly, fan, and brackets + backplate that support an extensive range of AMD and Intel processors. A little thermal paste is pre-applied on the cooler for you. I do wish that manufacturers would add a little extra for reserve in a syringe.




Here we have the package showing the radiator unit and block/pump; we'll need to mount the variable PWM ML series fans (3x 120mm). The fans are re-wired onto the included core commander controller. With Corsair's iCUE software, you may regulate it and set up your RPM preferences and, of course, RGB preferences. We'll show that later on in the article.


Here we have the Commander Core RGB/fan hub connected to a USB header on the motherboard and powered by a SATA cable. Here you can hook up to six fans (PWM) and your compatible RGB products, also six. The USB header is needed to communicate with iCUE, of course.
