Cons The fan that came with the H60 is good but at max speed it's loud.
Summary My temperature dropped compared to my CM V6 GT (at load i was at 75c now i am at 55-59c). Maybe you can get same temperature with a high end air cooler but with this you wont have that massive tower that take all the place in your case and cover everything. People having trouble with temperature with this cooler is probably due to not mounting the block correctly on the CPU.
Pros Well packaged, came with a wide variety of parts, which would assumedly fit all of the sockets Corsair claims it will fit on.
Cons The instructions are very loosely worded. It tells you how to mount the little backplate thing, and attaching the pump to the processor; but after that, it's not exactly a Harvard professor.
(This was my first time installing a water cooler, but) it did not specifically explain in what order and orientation the fan is supposed to be attached to the radiator -- I had to Google that.
Although the fan has a 4-pin connector, and the pump a 3-pin connector, it did not say which should be connected to which connector on my motherboard -- I had to Google that, too.
The fan that Corsair bundled with the radiator and pump was just horrendous. I got better temperatures, and quieter operation, using my 3-pin NZXT case fan than I did with theirs.
After the first week of operation (2-4 hours per day), the pump has started making a disgusting grinding noise after about 20 minutes of light operation (web browsing and video streaming).
Summary I've heard good of Corsair products, and with the post-holiday madness, I picked up this water cooler on sale to further the upgrading of my first ever PC build. (Gone from a 4570 to a 4690K; a GTX 650 Ti to a 760, added 8GB of RAM, etc.) I'm going to be switching back to the 4690K's stock fan until I can determine why the pump is operating so noisily.
I can't say I recommend this cooler, however, I have only ran with this one for a week, so maybe the future bodes well for it. As always with computer construction and upgrading, DO YOUR RESEARCH! (Hindsight is 20/20.)
Pros Very good price for performance Keep your CPU cool (I hope!)
Cons Default fan bit noisy Round frame fan
Summary This all-in-one liquid cooler for CPU is very great for its price. It keeps my I7-4770K idle at 26°C. The 120 mm fan who come with it is not exceptionnal. This is why I order a Noctua NF-A12 to replace it. Round frame fan aren't good for radiator because they aren't optimise for this task.
Summary I found this item a bit noisy. I replaced its fan with a Noctua fan which made it less noisy. I use it on my first 920-i7 CPU. Works fine so far. Not a big cooling gain from Noctua cooler, but I really needed something that will allow me to free some airflow space in my old Sonata case.
Pros Runs cool. Looks great. Comes with decent 120mm fan.
Summary This is a great product. It's well priced (often on sale for around $50-60), looks awesome, and runs cool.
The instructions are pretty straightforward, too, if you haven't had much experience with all in one watercoolers. Just be sure to get the backplate for this thing sorted before you screw down the motherboard.
I've been running this setup with an i7 2600K at 4.5Ghz for 3 years. No leaks, no fuss. Barely brushes 60 degrees C under load.
Summary I had a dual fan cooling system before too much noise and not enough cooling the H60 provide lots of cooling with almost no noise doing 10 celcius at doing nothing and around 25 celcius with a game running really good!
Hydro Series H60's second-generation design offers powerful, efficient CPU cooling. The redesigned fan and low-profile radiator help H60 excel at rapidly drawing heat away from your CPU when you're pushing it hard.
