Corsair Link Software and RGB Illumination

The Corsair link Software can be downloaded from the Corsair website and enables control of the fans, Pump and RGB lighting aspects of the H110i GT.  It also offers the ability to monitor a vast amount of activity and temperatures of other case components.  In the images below we've shown how the RGB illumination of the Cold plate can be controlled via three sliders enabling the user to choose any colour they wish.  It's also possible to add lighting effects should you so desire.  The image below right shows how the monitoring and control icons can be un-docked from the left hand column and placed into the representation of a case in the places you would expect to see them, or any where you want to put them for that matter.  This image also shows one of the ways in which the fan speed information can be displayed.

If you're not happy with the image of the case that opens when you boot the software, don't worry as Corsair bundle a whole host of other Corsair case images for you to choose from.  If you're not using a corsair case then fret not as you can actually up load any case image you choose, or presumably any image at all as we doubt the software knows what's there.  eCookie for naming the two cases shown.

In the image below left we've shown a little of how it's possible to set up a temperature sensor including the ability of the software to shut the PC down under certain parameters, and even send you and e-mail if limits you have defined are exceeded.  Below right we've shown how it's possible to define your own custom cooling profiles, allowing fan speeds to increase as thermal parameters are reached.  This custom profile is in addition to a whole host of pre defined profiles such as the performance, balanced and Quiet that we have used for testing.

Although eminently flexible with regards to set up and configuration,  the interface isn't exactly the most colourful or inspiring in the world.  You can though change from a dark back ground to a light one and choose what colour of text you would like

Having shown you the software that powers the RGB control of the cold plate we thought we'd show you some of the lighting effects.  We've got the intensity level set about half with the house lights off so as to show just the logo itself illuminated.

With the intensity cranked up it's also possible to have some light bleed into the edges of the bevelled silver area to give a back lit illumination effect to the plate.

Cheers Tom been waiting for this review.

The silver trims on the rad and block can be removed and replaced with a red or blue one.

Yes, i'm not sure I agree with everything but certainly i'm not going to hate on this at all. I did think the H100i pump block looked better and cleaner however I can appreciate this one is matt black which if it survives Corsair's packaging should stay looking fresh for a lot longer.

One thing, are the grey clips not replaceable? Why are you banging on about glue and hair dryers guv, I thought the idea was they just clipped off, is that GTX's only or something? Earlier in the day I was thinking to myself 'but it's gonna be upside down for some people' then I realized if they make it the wrong way up on the back when you swap them over it will be the right way around for everyone. Then watching the review it looked like they did exactly as I thought... but then you said glue. If they are infact permanent then I despise how poorly they fit around the octagonal part.


I can appreciate you must do A LOT of testing for these cooler reviews with multiple overclocks and multiple fan speeds all for an extended period of time. That must be time consuming. But I feel that it's a bit wasted when they aren't directly comparable from product to product.

By which i'm trying to say the Kelvin obviously has slow fans. If it had 2700RPM fans it would have humiliated everything ever but then you would have given it a shoddy award for being uber loud. Similarly the Nepton which is comparable size and product I have no idea how it 'actually' compares from the graph. ie. performance per db. I know it's not your style to analy measure noise levels and go nuts and I appreciate that because it's something the end user will never do either. But it would be great to have a result for every cooler at one fan speed and heat load. Not 12v or 7v! Just say 1500RPM. If it would be a total PITA to control each fan like that (it wouldn't you just need an Aquaero in the test rig) then maybe use the same fan every time. Just a directly comparable result at which the reader can sit back and think right at this noise level which is acceptable for me X cooler will perform the best.
