  • H110i GT Hydro Series Cooler
  • H110i Hydro Series Cooler

Fortunately the hardware in use in the studio is still supported. Some with machines built over 5 years ago are finding some components are now dropped.

The H115i RGB is the contemporary model which suggests it is still mainstream in 2021. Water coolers are not a large category in gaming as most AMD users use the supplied fan. Intel does not bundle a cooler with some of their processors.

The HX1000i is supported even though it was new in 2015. Only the more expensive Corsair power supplies have the monitoring capability. The Corsair Commander Pro is the primary fan control box with USB support in addition to fan control and thermal monitoring. The Commander is excellent for managing chassis fans galore. Expanded fan control is available for Corsair 5000D type machines with a full load of RGB fans.
