Corsair Hydro Series H115i PRO RGB AIO Liquid CPU Cooler

So about a week ago, I was looking at the CPU coolers trying to find out if my current one that I just bought a year ago would fit on my new mobo, but mine wasn’t listed as compatible. I contacted somebody at Corsair to see if I needed a replacement bracket for the above listed cooler that I was going to fit on my new socket 1700 Z690 mobo. I was told that my current one wouldn’t fit and that Corsair only had a different bracket for the incue cooler that looked exactly like mine (size wise) with two 144mm fans. 
To make a long story short, the Corsair H115i absolutely WILL FIT the socket 1700 on a Z690 motherboard. I just installed it today. 
I wonder how many people bought a new cooler because of Corsair’s information was completely wrong?

it can work with the LGA1200 bracket, but the mounting pressure will be very weak. for some people it's ok, for others, the CPU will run too hot. They can't guarantee the performance as is.

This is a situation where millimeters matter. You may want to search around to see the various discussions across all brands, but bending the mounting posts to close the gap does not seem like a great idea. It has a new socket name for a reason.

Very cool rig !!!  It's much better for you if your cooler fits well on the new mobo.  As you know the "sales" machine must keep going...

It´s easier to sell another device than simply providing new mounting kits.   you just have to check your cpu temps for a while and see

if everything is ok.  the i9 is a beast. my i9 9900k can run hot, very hot especially when you reach the 5ghz zone.

are you sure you really mean 28C at full load?  mine is 30C in idle right now and I have an H150i pro cooler.

It can easily jump up to 90C while rendering.

I see we have the same ram sticks.  Can I ask you what is your average ram temps please?  (Idle/gaming)

it can't run at 26 under full load. you'd need LN2 to get that low 😉 (if it is CPU temp. but even water should run hotter)

i'd be interested to see how it does after like 10 minutes of looped Cinebench runs, just to see the difference between coolant temp and CPU temp.

This is where you will see if there is a mounting issue.

Also, the temperature difference between cores should be minimal. If some are noticeably hottter than others, it means the coldplate is making bad contact or is too narrow for the CPU.

BTW, thank you Zoltan. I just got all the parts in. I’m still waiting on my DDR5 5200 ram to run on my Gigabyte Z690 Master mobo. In the meantime, I’m running the I9 12900K with the Gigabyte Elite. Yea, I bought two motherboards, but I will pass the Elite to my son when the memory comes in.

LeDoyen, I played CoD Vanguard last night for over an hour- averaging 200-220 fps. My temps ran extremely cool with zero overheat issues. Im running XMP also. Say what you want, but this cooler fit great and my temps are much less than my i7 8700K.

ooh it will run cooler, no worries, but not at 26°C. even the water in your screenshot is at 28 in idle, and the case is even hotter, from the motherboard temps.

The 8700k was a very hot CPU

iCUE and the dashboard will definitely hit your score. When i used iCUE, i used to set the fan curve and close it completely, including the iCUE service to get the better scores 😛

Got a hold of some DDR5 5200. It will be here Monday. 
BTW, I’ve been OC’ed XMP running games all week. Temps have stayed in the 50’s. 
*I realize Corsair wants to sell new coolers, but to me it’s a total waste not to use the H115i. It’s always been a great cooler with my i7 8700K, and it works with this socket.

true.  and it seems that new coolers pumps are very noisy.  a very lot of users are complaining about the pumps noise!!!

I have just updated my rig one year ago and unfortuately i won't have budget for a new upgrade for a long time

(i won't probably even need it with an i9 9900k and 32 gigs of ram) but the next time I'll buy an aio I should better investigate about

issues and noise before buying.   no more blind faith in brands, not even corsair....

p.s.

I have read somewhere here on the forum that the new ddr5 ram can't reach their maximum speed on alder lake

depending on the motherboard and the number of ram sticks you have. 

so they mostly run at ddr4 speeds.  have you heard about it?
