Summary: Antec KÜHLER H2O 920 CPU Cooler is the KÜHLER H2O 620's bigger brother! The KÜHLER H2O 920 is similar to the 620, but has a thicker radiator, extra 120mm fan, RGB LED and Chill Control software. If you're in the market for a CPU cooler, this is one of the best options out there.
Excerpt: If it weren’t for the branding on the Kühler H20 620’s fan and water block, you’d be forgiven for mistaking it for a Corsair product. Its mounting bracket is the exact same one used in Corsair’s Hydro H50 and H70 coolers, while its radiator looks like the H50’s and the pump unit looks like the H70’s. Is this a case of industrial espionage? The answer is less sordid, but still full of intrigue.
Excerpt: Antec has been in the business for a long time. In fact, they are celebrating their silver anniversary. That's right, Antec brings twenty-five years of experience to the table! With this sort of history, they know a good idea when they see one, and of course they saw what all the rage is in all-in-one water cooling loops. Corsair and CoolIt have made good amounts of money off of this concept, and now Antec figures it is time for their share of the market.
Conclusion: Please remember that these test results reflect our experience with each cooler on a specific motherboard, with a specific processor, BIOS revision, BCLK and voltage settings, and test programs. The results of this test cannot be directly compared to other tests since many factors will have changed. Installing the Kühler is easier than most other compact liquid coolers due to the flexibility and length of its soft rubber hoses.
Pros: Priced at the bottom of the range for coolers of this type, Integrated fan speed controller varies fan speed as required, Very quiet, even at full fan speed, Astonishing CPU cooling performance, Maintenance-free liquid-cooling system
Cons: Pump mounting system seems insubstantial, Cannot expand the system with chipset or GPU coolers, Specifications for the pump and fan seem to be secrets
Conclusion: When I looked at the thermal results I was quite surprised at the unit’s performance. I thought the 620 performed very well, considering the configuration and sound levels. I feel the cooler is well suited for those of us who want a quiet cooler that can also perform well when performance is needed, but who don’t need the flashiness of the 920 and appreciate a lower price. I think the 620 fills this spot very well.
Pros: Excellent performance, Very quiet operation for the most part, High quality thermal paste, Overall quality of the product is excellent, Competitive pricing against air coolers.
Cons: Only one mount of thermal paste included, There were some scratches on the radiators fins
Summary: Having run with the cooler (and lower temperatures) for over a week; I can say that I am more than happy with the performance of the cooler. If I think back to the installation I would have to admit to having 2 complaints of the Antec KÜHLER H₂O 620. These are Admittedly minor issues but enough to come to mind when thinking about what value I give the cooler for its design\quality score for the review.
Excerpt: Antec (@AntecEurope) KÜHLER H2O 920 offers a sealed liquid CPU cooling solution and unlike traditional liquid cooling systems, this self-contained unit comes prefilled and requires zero maintenance. The third-generation copper ...
Conclusion: Antec Kühler H2O 620 er sprit ny på markedet, men de har åbenbart valgt at presse markedet fra starten så det er muligt at købe den nye Kühler 620 løsning for 428kr. hvilket må siges at være en imponerende pris for en kompakt vandkøler med så gode egenskaber og arbejdsforhold. Det bliver en grum konkurrent til Corsair, men især Coolit vil få problemer med endnu en konkurrent i LCLC klassen, for det beviser bare at Asetek har lavet en løsning ingen endnu har kunne...
Excerpt: Πριν από λίγο καιρό είχαμε δοκιμάσει το KUHLER H2O 620 . Προσφάτως η σειρά KUHLER απέκτησε ένα μεγαλύτερο μοντέλο, το KUHLER H2O 920 το οποίο προσδοκεί να κάνει την Corsair να χάσει τον ύπνο της. Η τελευταία από ότι φαίνεται παράτησε την Asetek μιας και αυτή την πρόδωσε μετά τη συνεργασία με την Antec και κατέφυγε στην Coolit παρουσιάζοντας τα H80 και H100.
