Summary: Perhaps my next build will get an upgrade or a custom system. At a later date I may build a fancy piping system to pipe heat completely outside. Know that if you generate heat you are going to transfer it from your rig to your room. That is an added bonus in the Winter- but an issue in the Summer.
Pros: This is my first liquid system and I can't imagine ever going back to only air again except for a minimal backup/testing rig. It has held up well with an FX8350 (usually) OCed.
Cons: Mine arrived with a slight ding. That probably should be -1 egg for Newegg rather than Corsair.
Summary: The instructions not entirely clear. You "MUST" install the pump "EXACTLY" like it is shown in the picture or the edge may catch on some caps keeping it from sitting flat on the CPU as the copper plate on the underside is rectangular, not square and there are raised areas on both of the long sides...
Pros: Quiet operation. 15c cooler then stock fan under load. 5 year Corsair Warranty. Looks good. (My case has a big window)
Cons: Pump died after 16 mo, had to pay for shipping one way but replacement was fast.
Summary: overall very good cooler but i wish the extra screws were included. i used to have a Cooler Master Evo Plus, temps on FX-8320 are lower by 5 deg on average. want to buy again but no extra screws are included.
Pros: very easy install on FX-8320. no back plate needed. easier than the Cooler Master Seidon 120V. radiator is low profile so blocking of top case fans
Cons: ONE EGG OFF. doesn't include long screws to install second fan for push pull config. Cooler Master Seidon has included one, good thing i have extra screws
Summary: Okay so my CPU is clocked at 4.4Ghz. On my air cooler, I got between 37-42 degrees idle, and between 75-85 degrees maxed out on prime 95. On this air cooler, I get 35-39 degrees idle, and 75-82 degrees maxed out on prime 95... so basically the same temps?...
Pros: - Pretty dang quiet compared to the Enermax air cooler that I had. - Small, very non-intrusive (My air cooler was massive) - Build quality. I expected less, but the quality was actually pretty decent
Cons: I gave 4 stars for a couple reasons. Don't get me wrong this seems like a great product, as per the 3 Pros listed above. But I feel like my H60 isn't cooling enough... compared to the results other people are getting.
Pros: I use an Intel Core i7-4790K and my hot (78 C under load) GTX 960 is right next to it. This liquid cooler took my processors temps down from 98 C max under load to 83 C max under load, averaging only 73 C under load. I use a mini-ITX case, in case you are wondering why the temps are still so high.
Cons: Pump is a little on the short and stiff side.
Summary: Okay so my processor is a i7-3770k clocked at 4.4Ghz. On my air cooler, maxed out, I would get temps around 77-85 degrees. about 35-43 idle. On this H60, I'm getting about 34-39 degrees idle and 75-81 degrees celcius maxed out on Prime... These temps are not that great...
Pros: - Good build quality - Clean, doesn't take up much space - Quiet
Cons: Not really sure it does a good job at cooling, or maybe I'm just not having good luck with mine. I'm getting about the same temps that I got with my air cooler. See other thoughts.
Summary: Just a fluke I'm sure but pretty disappointed all together
Pros: Looks nice, super easy to install, cheap
Cons: I don't know if the pump is dead or what the deal is but I've been using this cooler for a little over a month now and I'm starting to think I need to contact corsair. Idle temps between 35-45c; under load cpu temps nearing 90c; not even close to what other people are reporting and nowhere near w...
Summary: I was at 50 degrees Celsius at idle and 90 under load with my stock cooler on a 4790k. Popped this bad boy on and my idle for all four cores is around 25 Celsius and under 100% load my temps are at 55. Wow that's a huge upgrade from stock cooler!
Pros: Easy to install, with a little elbow grease that is. Great temps, I was very surprised. Didn't leak on my new build (knock on wood). Great price.
Cons: Kind of picky, but wish it came with some thermal grease instead of pre applied. Just personal preference.
