Corsair H115i AM4 Socket Support

Hello all. I recently purchased an H115i for my computer. While it is completely overkill for my FX4300, it has been functioning amazingly never getting above 45C under load.

 

I bought this cooler in preparation to upgrade to a AMD Zen CPU later this year or next spring (whenever they come out). After a quick search on Google for "AMD AM4 Socket" it appears that the H115i will not be able to directly bolt up to the new AM4 socket. At first glance, it almost looks like the motherboard holes are similar to an Intel socket's.

 

Does Corsair intend on providing an adapter kit or new mounting bracket for this socket? I completely understand if it is something I would have to purchase, but I just wanted to ask on the forums if there are any plans yet.

 

Again, I am very impressed with this cooler (being my first AIO) and I look forward to using it in the future to cool off my Zen CPU next year!

Yeah i hope so too, i bought the H115i to beat the rush so i'd have it when Ryzen launched. I contacted Corsair support and they said they have no public information about compatibility at that time.

 

Just pre ordered Ryzen today, now fingers crossed corsair announces something in the next 5 days

I wouldn't expect any Pre-Ordered CPU/Mobo hardware to ship for at least 8 days, as the launch date is March 2nd, and Newegg pre-orders have an estimated ship date of March 7th which is 13 days!

 

I also pre-ordered a Ryzen 7 1800X on Amazon which was bundled with an H100i V2 cooler which has apparently gone out of stock already (Archived Link).

 

I'm not sure if they are planning on holding the H100i V2 shipment until the CPU ships, and if it comes with an AM4 adapter or not.

 

I guess we have to wait and see, this is the joy of pre-ordering brand new hardware :D

It would be extremely unusual for Corsair not to make a bracket for a major socket release. You'll have to wait until launch, but it would be shocking if the necessary adapter does not come in future kits and is offered as an accessory for prior owners.

You'd think it'd be unusual for Corsair not to update their software to support a major processor release but ...

Confirmed from a vendor i buy parts from, compatibility kits will go on sale "Mid March" in Australia for the H115i (not sure about the rest of the world).

Also it should be noted that this is a universal kit for all current Corsair coolers that don't have AM4 support.

I ordered the following on February 22nd:

- 04 * Ryzen 7 1800X

- 16 * G.SkillL 4266MHz DDR4 SDRAM

- 04 * ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard

- 04 * Corsair H115i cooler

 

I already received the DDR4 SDRAM and H115i coolers.

 

I did a lot of research before ordering the H115i coolers, and hope I don't need to return and replace them! What's the deal?

 

Also note that someone somewhere on youtube (can't remember who or where) said the ASUS Crosshair VI Hero has holes in the motherboard for both AM3+ and AM4. I don't know if this is true, much less understand the significance. I also recall hearing the AM4 socket and/or Ryzen CPUs are a little bit thicker than the AM3+ equivalent... but perhaps this can be fixed with slightly taller standoffs or 4 washers from a hardware store? Does any of this solve my problem?

 

I don't understand enough about adding liquid cooling, as these will be my first build with liquid coolers. Any help will be appreciated.

 

PS: Isn't this H115i the latest model? How can it not support AM4 out of the box?

Looks like you can get a AM4 bracket from them at a cost.... however I'm speaking to Corsair support at the moment trying to get a straight answer if they will send me that bracket as its not available for delivery in my region(Australia) on their website.

 

It's free if you register a store account and use the "CORSAIRAM4BR" coupon code. For folks down under, you might have to wait longer.

I called Corsair support and they indeed DID confirm that the ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard will support AM3+ so no AM4 mount will be needed with this mobo. I am in the same boat as you with the same board and 1800X (on preorder) and H115i cooler. We should be good and not need any type of adapter/mount.
