Do we really need these many coolers, that are only 1-2 degrees apart?

Sure. Why not? As they say: "Variety is the spice of life".

any confirmation of what the new tubing size is? that block/pump would likely be good for some simple modded loops with an extra (or bigger) rad

The H60 2.0 appears to be CoolITs latest and greatest. Whereas the H55 appears to be Asetek's. It is very nice to see Corsair branch out and include BOTH mfg'ers in their lineup....as both bring different strengths (and weaknesses) to the table.

I really hope this generation of coolers is even an improvment on what I was used to in the past.

I think they have really refined these coolers, and so far from my experience they are really reliable and take the worry away from me for cooler heights, and RAM Heatsinks etc etc.

That being said, I really honestly think they should start making 140mm Versions since a lot of cases nowadays are opting for 140mm vs 120mm...

Hope they refined the AMD mounting system, the V1.0 was pathetic at best. Sadly, it does not take a genius to design a nice mouting plate set-up, instead of this 'capt'n hook' design, just to save $1.50. Ended up replacing my H60 (on the home machine) with an 212 EVO, as the H60s I had up to this point were anything but quiet and definetly not suited for a quiet environment (my experience only of course). [The H80 for the work machine is fine.]

Shame they don't show the actual radiator. The original H60s radiator had a fin density that was way too high. Hopefully they fixed that major flaw.
