Antec Kuhler 620 vs Corsair H60 Thread
 
So far there's only been one review from BMR, and they say that the Kuhler 620 is better than the H70 with high speed Delta fans.

I will be in the market for a water-cooling-for-dummies kit in the future and was wondering if the H60 will be a threat.

Another review of the 620:

Introduction - Antec KHLER H2O 620 CPU Water Cooler Review | [H]ard|OCP

It performs slightly better than the H50, but is much quieter.

Still waiting for those H60 reviews!
HWC you get your review samples yet? :clap::rofl::biggrin::bananafunky:

I would hazard a guess that the pumps would be eerily similar in the Antec unit and the Corsair H50 unit.
It's practically the same mounting and rad (reviewer even mentions he had to do a double take to make sure he's recording the right units)

When you take into consideration that you don't know his testing methodology, there could be a huge variance in his results. Did he mount the block three times and take an average? Did the room temperature stay consistent? His overclock numbers look weird 1.45V for 3.6Ghz? I assume a c0?
The only difference I see in the Antec vs Corsair are the supplied fans.. which a lot of people pick-and-choose anyways.

I would assume the pumps make the same amount of noise - but we can't know this for sure.. because they were testing the entire noise of the system.
We still haven't seen numbers for the H60.. but I would be hopeful that the H60 > H70 - but who knows.

If I were to get a pre-filled liquid cooled kit now, i'd just pick up an H70 and be done with it. And you might want to look at replacing the fans too.

There's an H60 review here Corsair H60 Liquid CPU Cooler Review - Introduction which seems to say it's nearly as good as the H70, but quieter, so seems like a good product.

I would get the H70, but I think my case is too small for the dual fan and monster rad. I'm afraid the tubing would be bent at too tight of an angle.

Get a H70 with a single fan. Just change the stock fan for something more solid so it will help forget you remove one fan. Scythe gentle typhoon 1850 will do just fine :)
