The integrated screen is most likely an LCD panel, which are often found in luxury AIO cooling systems. Corsair was one of the first major players in all in one liquid coolers, but never went ‘beyond’ RGB lighting in and around the cooling system.
Corsair’s new AIO cooler doesn’t have an official name yet, but it looks like the system is (for now) exclusive to the Intel LGA1700 socket — and with it the Alder Lake generation of Intel processors. Whether the cooler will also be made compatible with previous Intel sockets or competitor AMD’s offering is still unclear.
Bee VideoCardz received footage of the cooler in combination with an Asus Prime Z690 motherboard, including Vengeance DDR5 memory from Corsair itself. It is expected that Corsair will launch both the new RAM and the new cooler(s) simultaneously; presumably that will be between the beginning of November and the end of 2021.
In addition to a first set of product photos, very little is known about Corsair’s latest AIO cooler . Earlier this year, the hardware giant launched the luxury iCUE H170i Elite Capellix, on which this next-gen model probably continues.
It is striking that not only the water pump is shaped differently, but also that the included rgb fans on the radiator have an as yet unseen design. Corsair has promised to come up with more news “in the coming weeks”.
Intel’s new processors are likely to launch on November 4; by then we will undoubtedly hear more about the associated coolers, new Z690 motherboards and of course the appearance of DDR5 RAM.
