Corsair H170i Elite Capellix XT (420mm LCS) 

The Corsair H170i Elite Capellix XT is a newly redesigned cooler model for 2023, featuring a unique design where all connections are connected towards a node/hub called Commander Core. This makes the device 100 percent iCUE compliant. Simply plug it into a USB port and the cooler will be ready to use.

The H170i Elite Capellix XT has an appealing redesign and comes with three PWM fans. The cooler is intended to be quiet while still providing adequate cooling capacity for modern processors. It also comes with a mounting kit that is compatible with both Threadripper and Intel's LGA1700 Raptor/Alder Lake processors. On the market, there are numerous heatpipe-based cooler options, many of which have similar shapes, sizes, and prices. However, liquid cooling systems, or LCS, provide superior performance and are growing in popularity as entry-level products become more affordable and simple to install. Radiators are available in 240, 280, 360, and 420mm sizes, allowing them to be used in almost any build. Wide Range of Compatibility: It is compatible with the most recent Intel and AMD motherboard sockets, such as LGA 1700, 1200, 115X, 2066, and AM4 /STRX. Corsair's iCUE ELITE CAPELLIX XT Liquid series CPU Cooler is a high-performance cooling solution for Intel or AMD processors. With the help of CORSAIR AF RGB ELITE PWM fans that produce low-noise airflow, its AirGuide technology allows for concentrated cooling along a 240mm, 280mm, 360mm, or 420mm radiator. The cooler also has ultra-bright CAPELLIX LEDs that can be controlled and coordinated using the Corsair iCUE Commander CORE controller and iCUE software that comes with it. The cooler is simple to install and works with a wide range of Intel and AMD motherboard sockets. The CORSAIR iCUE Commander CORE is intended to work with all retail PWM fan models, including the SP RGB ELITE Series, ML Series, LL Series, and QL Series, and does not support voltage fan control. The unit has good performance and low noise levels, and it has an optional 0-DBA mode.
