Summary: Corsair have updated the waterblock design and given the Hydro H60 a new compact profile which hides functional changes to the integrated pump and improves mounting bracket installation significantly. All of this is transparent to the end user though.
Summary: The new 2012 edition Hydro Series H60 from Corsair offers a lot of things to like. There is the redesigned exterior of the head unit, there is the redesign on the cold plate and the amount of flow they have in these new units.
Summary: The Corsair H60 is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to enter the liquid cooling world, as it is easy to install and fits virtually any case. It equals the performance of the high-end air coolers, with a similar price tag.
Conclusion: Finding the right balance between cooling performance and noise is definitely a challenge. While traditional air-coolers continue to grow in size and weight to deal with this problem, Corsair fights it from a different angle with liquid.
Conclusion: Our benchmarks have confirmed what you might have already expected; Hydro H60 performance sits slap-bang in the middle of the £50 Hydro H50 and £75 Hydro H70. Temperatures are kept well within comfortable limits, and the £60 self-contained unit is a strong challenger to high-end air coolers.
Summary: Corsair's H60 liquid CPU cooler comes to us with different technology than we saw with its H50 and H70 as Corsair has switched up supply sources. Corsair is touting a micro-channel cold plates and a split-flow designed manifolds. But, will it blend?
Summary: I was surprised that Corsair launched another complete liquid cooling model, the H60. The H50 being perfect for tiny spaces and moderate cooling demands. The H70 was able to cope with our overclocked Gulftown setup, crushing the H50's performance.
