The Corsair iCUE LINK H100i LCD stands out as the flagship in the iCUE LINK LCD Series, a premium all-in-one cooler seamlessly integrated into Corsair’s single-cable ecosystem. Featuring a 2.1″ IPS LCD screen that’s fully customizable, along with the stylish CORSAIR QX RGB fans and discreet wiring, it brings both functionality and aesthetics to the forefront.
The series, consisting of the iCUE LINK H100i, H150i, and H170i LCD coolers, cater to various setups with radiator sizes of 240 mm, 360 mm, and 420 mm respectively. Installation is a breeze with pre-applied CORSAIR XTM70 thermal paste and tool-free mounting brackets, ensuring compatibility with popular motherboard sockets like Intel LGA 1700, 1200, 115X, and AMD Socket AM5 and AM4.
The single-cable technology of the iCUE LINK ecosystem streamlines the PC-building process. By connecting QX RGB fans in a direct sequence through the universal iCUE LINK connector, all routed to a single port on the iCUE LINK System Hub, it minimizes cable clutter for a cleaner and more manageable system.
The pump cap’s ultra-bright 480×480 LCD screen, a hallmark of every iCUE LINK LCD Series cooler, not only defines the aesthetic but also provides a canvas for personal expression, supporting a myriad of customizations, from esports logos to animated GIFs in 24-bit true color depth.

Following the setup of the motherboard and installation of the cooler for AM5/AM4 or Intel configurations, including the radiator and pump unit, we tested the performance of the iCUE LINK H100i LCD.
During idle periods, the CPU temperature consistently ranged between 28-32°C. Under load and during gaming sessions, temperatures peaked at 62-68°C, prompting the fans to increase speed for swift temperature stabilization. Remarkably, the fan noise levels remained quiet, at approximately 30 dBa during regular operation and reaching around 36 dBa under load in our tests.
Corsair’s iCue software offers comprehensive control over lighting and fan settings. The RGB configurations extend to both the fans and the illuminated ring encircling the 480×480 IPS display. The pump’s display showcases versatility by supporting static images and GIF animations. Our testing involved adding a custom static image while adjusting pump and fan speeds to their maximum settings, achieving optimal temperature control.
In conclusion, the Corsair iCUE LINK H100i LCD impresses with its innovative design, modular features, and efficient performance. The LCD screen, QX RGB fans, and iCUE LINK System Hub contribute to a streamlined and aesthetically pleasing build. Installation is straightforward, and the iCue software provides robust control over lighting and fan settings. With temperatures well-managed and noise levels kept minimal, this all-in-one cooler proves to be a compelling choice for users seeking both functionality and style in their cooling solutions.
