While there are far and few cases designed specifically for water-cooled computers in mind, Corsair’s new 5000D RGB Hydro X Edition comes with components that make designing and building a custom cooling loop easier.

Traditionally speaking, custom-cooling loops usually circulate coolant through the system using a pump without a distribution plate. In this case, however, Corsair pre-installed an acrylic distribution plate and a Corsair XD7 RGB Pump and Reservoir Combo that should make building a custom loop easier.

Bundled as a single piece, the acrylic distribution plate works in tandem with the Xylem D5 pump that acts as a central point, connecting all the liquid-cooled components together which is literally the heart of the system. The plate is also equipped with three pairs of inlet and outlet ports to connect the CPU block, GPU block, and a pair of 360mm radiators that can be mounted on the side and at the top.

Of course, the XD7 comes with 36 addressable RGB LEDs as well, which can be seen from the front of the case when lit.

While Corsair didn’t bundle any fans with the 5000D Hydro X Edition, it did include an iCUE Commander Pro controller that can manage up to seven 120mm fans and the Xylem D5 pump speed, while enabling synchronisation of the RGB elements in the system. The case can also house up to three 2.5-inch SSDs, and two 3.5-inch HDDs, while the front panel I/O includes a USB 3.1 Type-C and a pair of USB 3.0 Type-A ports. 

As for pricing and availability, Corsair’s 5000D Hydro X Edition is available immediately on Corsair’s website, albeit only in the United States. If it does come to Singapore, we’ll update this space with pricing and availability.
