tried it out.

  • Summary: reading reviews when i was looking for a water cooler and it seems to be hit or miss if people get a defective one. looks like i beat the odds. its a decent cooler if it works. but just going to take the risk out (since there have been issues of leaks with liquid coolers) and put in a mid-line air...
  • Pros: Pretty easy to install.
  • Cons: Had the cooler installed for about 2 weeks and it kept the CPU at around 40C even with games on demanding settings. but now its going 50C+. dont know if the pump went out or not.

Works well!!

  • Pros: My A10-7850k was 65c in the BIOS, and going up to the high 70's Celsius after a few minutes using the stock CPU cooler. WAY too high. With this my CPU stays at 37 Celcius in the BIOS. Awesome. Really does a good job. And if you have an AMD, installing this is a snap. No backplate required. Clip i...
  • Cons: None I can think of. The tubes were a bit stiff, but manageable.

Better than air for only a few dollars more.

  • Summary: With the cooler installed and the pump 3 pin wire connected to the CPU_fan leads, I turned the fan controller in the BIOS to max and she runs at 35c at idle and under full load with Prime95 it gets up to 85c.
  • Pros: I bought this for my very first liquid cooled build. I figured, for the price... I couldn't go wrong. It was easy to install on my EVGA Z97 FTW (socket 1150) motherboard. It keeps my i7-4790k as cool if not cooler than a heat sink/fan combo.
  • Cons: The only issue I had with this unit was when screwing the long screws through the case and fan into the radiator, the threads in one of the holes stripped out on me. The other 3 are holding pretty well though. I don't want to take it out and send it back because then I would be without a CPU cool...

works just fine

  • Summary: I was busily fitting 5 # of sugar into a 4 # box, so I really have no complaints - it all works very well indeed.
  • Pros: Keeps my i5 at 26-32 C. despite heavy loads in a mATX build running in a warm room. No real difficulty installing the baseplate or locking the pump to the processor and baseplate.
  • Cons: 1. Hoses are very stiff and hard to bend around to fit limited space. May have to rotate the pump 90 degrees and install it that way to make things fit in a tight build. 2. Installation screws for radiator were 1/4" too short to allow installation behind case's fixed grill behind front fan. A qui...

works great...

  • Summary: i've used the H-60 and H-80i in multiple builds for the last couple years. all of them work great and do the job better than any air/air cooler at the same price...
  • Pros: does a pretty good job of keeping the 860k cool and the fx-8350 really cool and my Xeon v3 decently cool. The FX and the Xeon CPU eventually went to a H-80i, but i keep the H-60 on my 860k because it fits in my mini tower case. keeps the 860k socket temp at 42 degrees under load and core temp at ...
  • Cons: the stock fan isn't that great, but works....

Excellent cooler, easy install

Mikhail T., Newegg

  • Summary: For real though, this thing is QUIET, quit complaining everyone.
  • Pros: I have no idea how people are interpreting this thing as loud, I can't hear it at all. It's great, looks great, cools great. You could go with the H100 if you're really going to be pushing a chip, but this keeps my 4790k nice and cool at idle temps. Install was easy, even had preinstalled thermal...
  • Cons: Instruction guide could be clearer. The bit about plugging in the fan and pump is a little confusing, so watch a youtube video if you're worried and a total newbie like i am.

The H60 is worth it

Nathaniel A., Newegg

  • Summary: Hopefully my fan problems is just fluke on the unit as my other one is up and running like a charm. The only reason I give it a four egg is that I did have the issue with the one and clean the radiator block off can be a bit of pain depending on the setup.
  • Pros: I have 2 of these are my custom built Intel Core i5-4690K systems and both have worked like a charm. They keep the system temperature steady and are quiet.
  • Cons: The fan on mine developed an issue and one of the blade came off causing the fan to lock up and not spin. Found it in time so no over head issues. Took it apart fan still works with a bit of noise and wobble. I have RMAed the fan and will let you know how the replacement service goes.

Self Contained

Matthew B., Newegg

  • Summary: A friend suggested I get a system that cools all the chips on my pc (CPU, GPU's, Bridge, etc...) but honestly, this was the cheapest, and simplest way to get it done.
  • Pros: No maintenance, self contained, quiet and keeps the CPU chilled.
  • Cons: The installation was a little bit more trouble than just sticking it in. The hoses are very stiff. And since I did not purchase a corsair case, I had a bit of trouble getting the cooling block to sit easy on the CPU. I didn't want strain on the clamps or CPU. Next time I'll buy a Corsair case, as...

Chill Out

26 April 2015
  • Summary: Basically, if you can't figure this thing out with minimal help, you have no business building a computer. I could probably train a chimp to install one of these for an 1150 socket.
  • Pros: Easily Adjustable Affordable Fits 90% of current processors Preapplied Thermal Keeps my i7 4790k @ 4.0ghz 33c idling Comes with brackets for intel & AMD
  • Cons: Included booklet can be mildly confusing You may have to actually use your brain and hands together a little If (like me) you are trying to get by one-handed, you may need a friend to help you install this.
