New to water cooling (Corsair H60) - Page 2

post #11 of 28
1. No, it's a closed system, so it shouldn't need any maintenance.
2. It mounts to a 120mm fan; you'd need an adapter for use with a 140mm fan.
3. Depends mostly on which fan(s) you use and how you run them. The pump itself is pretty quiet.
4. I don't know.

Also, calling the H-series "water cooling" makes me cringe a little bit. It's practically just a standard cooler with a moveable heatsink.

You aren't the only one who it makes cringe. The title of water cooler seems to just be thrown around with these "liquid cooling" options.

Still not a bad option though, much easier to set up than a full water cooled loop and not much higher temps. Seems water cooling just tends to be an "I have a large e-peen" thing at times.

Wow, thanks for the fast replies guys!

So its comparable to a high end air cooler. At first that seemed underwhelming but considering the size difference it seems worth it. The installation seems simple as well, which can't be said for some air coolers like my Zalman.

The full tower that I end up with should have ample air intake (front fans) and exhaust (top/rear fans).

If you can have another person around for the install it really helps. the thing is awkward due to how stiff the cables are and the fact that it's two pieces.

The cases I'm looking at seem to have 140mm for exhaust...where can I find the adapter?

Most cases with 140s will also have the holes for 120, post up a link to the cases in question.

CM HAF 932 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-160-_-Product

CM HAF X - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-225-_-Product

Antec D-85 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-087-_-Product

Antec 1200 V3 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-100-_-Product

Those are my final four choices. I'd like to spend as little as possible while still maintaining good airflow

EDIT: I'll be using this case for SLI as well, so factor in a couple 560ti 2GB

You want to mainly look at the rear ports, they all have 120s on the back.

Well, to me any cooler that is composed of a radiator and a pump moving a liquid in a loop is a watercooler. The H60 is a watercooler...

I know it's fundamentally the same as any full-blown loop. It's just that there's a big difference in most other aspects between the two. And the H60 won't really give anyone a real sense of what custom watercooling is like.
