Corsair iCUE H100i Elite Capellix CPU AIO Cooler Review

It has been almost over a decade since Corsair’s AIO CPU coolers came to market and the company remains one of the most familiar names in CPU cooling to this date.

That being side, we are now on Corsair nth iteration of their AIO cooler and with Corsair going all-in on their iCUE RGB-infused product line, one of the first products coming out of this announcement late last year was the newer iCUE H100i Elite Capellix.

It is a mouthful so forgive me if I interchangeably use H100i Elite Capellix or some variation thereoff (probably going to stick with H100i Capellix) so please be guided accordingly. With that said, let’s take look at the CAPELLIX update of the venerable H100. This is going to be quite straightforward as I don’t see the H100i Elite Capellix adding anything to performance  but let’s focus on that anyway and see if the lightshow adds more flare to the actual function as well.
