We found the Hydro XC5 RGB CPU waterblock in the Corsair Hydro X series. The water block offered in versions for Intel LGA 115x / 1200 and AMD AM4 processors, is by all indications obtained by simplifying and making the Hydro XC7 RGB model cheaper.
Unlike the older model, the copper base of the corsair water block is not nickel-plated, and the lid is made of opaque plastic. The illumination light is diffused by a curly transparent insert. The backlighting effect is made on 16 LEDs, but they are not addressed individually, but in pairs, being combined into 8 zones.
You can also add a Corsair iCUE controller (sold separately) and powerful CORSAIRiCUE software to customize and sync RGB lighting across all your iCUE-compatible products including water blocks, fans, keyboard, and more.
