Alright so, what is the difference? I know the pro version is a later version, but is there any actual difference other than the Pro looking a bit more fancy. Difference as in maybe a 10 degree max temp difference. They look just the same, both are 280mm so.. Slightly confused. The radiators are the exact same size.


Oh and yeah I already know about the Zero RPM mode or whatever.



OOH. Another question, which would you say is the best out of the series anyways?

H100i V2

H105

H110i

H115i

H115i Pro

H150i Pro (Okay well obviously this one since its 360mm, so which one is the best out of the listed ones above)

The Pro version has slightly better fans, and a 6th gen pump.
The fans are quieter, run at a lower rpm and are better static pressure optimized.
The pump has a better propeller but also runs slightly quieter and slower.

Overall they are about the same when running at the same rpm, the older H115i slightly out performs the Pro version at max fan speed due to the 2000rpm fans but is also much louder.

There's definitely not a 10 degree temp difference, maybe 2-3c.

So definitely worth it to just go for the cheaper one out of the two? Any other AIOs that are roughly the same price range and maybe better?

All the 280mm AIOs are going to perform around the same, it really comes down to what fans are being used.
I would go with what ever is cheaper if you don't care about the noise.
It might be worth getting the Pro version if you want a quieter running system.

Yeah, don't care too much about noise. Any suggestions? Or don't really know.

A mate of mine has the older H110i, performs really well but he couldn't stand the noise the stock fans so he ended up replacing them with aftermarket fans.
You can't go wrong with Corsair really, their products and quality, that i've seen in person, has always been good.

Yeah I have an h100i V2, but it just isn't doing what I need it to do so I was gonna get a refund, has some problems it seems because I was getting bad idle temps and max temps out of nowhere. Corsair is a really good brand, they just make their fans really loud haha.
