Corsair's latest water blocks are up to 4°C cooler than their predecessors
Corsair has just launched their XC5 RGB PRO and XC7 RGB PRO CPU water blocks, both of which utilise a new cold plate design that uses a quad-split flow design and 110 cooling fins to deliver CPU thermals that are up to 4°C cooler than their last-generation counterparts.
These new CPU water blocks are designed to support the latest processors from AMD and Intel, supporting AMD's AM4 socket and Intel's LGA 115x, LGA 1200 and LGA 1700 sockets. With AMD confirming that AM4-compatible coolers will be supported on their next-generation Ryzen socket, users of this water block can rest assured that it will support Zen 4 when it launches in late 2022.
Both of these new CPU water blocks feature ARGB LEDs, with XC5 RGB PRO featuring 16 ARGB LEDs across eight lighting zones and the XC7 RGB PRO featuring 16 ARGB LEDs with individual lighting zones for finer ARGB lighting control. Corsair's Hydro X series XC5 ARGB PRO and XC7 ARGB PRO will cost $69.99 and $89.99 respectively in the US.
What follows is Corsair's Press Release for their new LGA 1700 PRO series water blocks.
