Corsair iCUE H170i Elite LCD XT AIO Review

Overall Performance

To calculate each cooler’s overall performance, I take into account three factors, the CPU’s temperature, wattage, and frequency, by using the following equation:

(Wattage/ Temperature) x Frequency

Each chart shows the cooler under test as 100% and every other product’s performance as relative to it.

The overall performance differences are high considering the load that the CPU applies to the cooler and the CPU’s frequency. As you can see in the graphs above, the high-end Corsair AIO has a notable lead over the two high-end air coolers. The Noctua NH-D15 and the DeepCool Assassin III are probably the best air coolers on the market. Still, they cannot come close to the AIO’s performance, even at low noise output, where air coolers usually have an advantage.

  1. >Speaking of the climate chamber, another myth is that considering the delta difference between the CPU’s temperature and the ambient temperature, you don’t need to worry so much about the room temperature. Well, so far, my experience with the climate chamber proved quite the opposite,

    Could you elaborate on this? I’ve always considered that delta T is roughly comparable, say a delta T of 40 degrees is roughly the same whether your ambient is 20 or 30. Thanks!
