This self-contained liquid cooling solution performs relatively well but gets beaten by the Antec Kuhler H2O 620 in terms of price, performance and warranty.
Today we are looking at the newest addition to the Corsair Hydro Series, the H60. The H60 is the result of Corsair and CoolIT Systems teaming up. Join us as we see how this new cooler holds up on our Intel Core i7-930 test bench and up against the recently tested offering from Antec, the Kuhler H2O 620.
"The Hydro Series from Corsair has been king of hill for pre-built sealed kits since it came out. It seems that with Antec teamed up with Asetek now in the cooler market the hill now belongs to them. With that being said, the H60 is a good cooler. It is well built, quieter than previous Hydro Series coolers and I really like the new mounting system for the pump/coldplate. The H60 could have benefited from having a second fan for a push/pull configuration. With the system overclocked to 4.0 GHz the radiator got warm. Once that happened the performance dropped and I could see the temps climb. In the exhaust configuration I could smell the rad getting warm. When I switched the fan around to be in the intake configuration I didn’t notice the smell, but the rad was warm to the touch. "
