If he's going with a non K there's no point in wasting money on an H80. Even the H60 would still be overkill.

well it all depends on your budget, if the extra $50 going from an h60 to h80 isn't a problem for you, then by all means go with the h80. but for a non k i7 2600, you probably won't see much of a difference between the h60 and h80, as you cannot over clock a non-k 2600, and the extra capacity in the h80 for higher clocks won't be put into use.

that's just my opinion, but if you have plans to upgrade to say an overclockable ivy bridge chip in a year's time then get the h80, if not i think the h60 should be enough for your current 2600

I thought the H80 was a huge upgrade over H60. Please advice if i should get a h60 or h80 . And thanks a lot to erik who gave feedback on his h80.
May I ask why you chose the hydro series route instead of a tradition heat sink?

I ask because lately I've been going through a lot of CPU coolers (CM v8, VenomousX, Noctua NH-D14, NH-C14, and now the H80) I chose to go with the H80 because I was tired of not being able to enjoy looking at my Sabertooth board and instead being forced to look at big ugly coolers and fans.

But I can honestly say I think I like the NH-C14 the best (though it is fugly as hell) because it does a great job at keeping your motherboard cool along with cpu (its only 2-3c warmer than D14 or H80, yet better than the others I've tried). I still love my new H80 tho so it's a toss up.

Now back to your question since you're asking. Which of those 2 should you get? Well I haven't tried any other hydro series but my H80. I can tell you it cools just as well as a NH-D14 or about (off hand guess I can't remember what my exact temps were with the D14 but if I remember correctly they were about the same as the temps I'm seeing with the H80). And I've seen tests where the D-14 out performs the h60, and in some cases by quite a bit. So going from that information alone, the H80 is indeed better. Is it worth the extra 50 or so bucks? Well Idk about that, but like eternal7trance said-It's your money.

If you go with the H80 it will be indeed overkill but say down the line you end up getting an ivy bridge 2011 socket and plan on overclocking it, you're all good and ready!

Here is the situation guys. I have a Coolermaster 800w silent pro gold , a I7 2600 , going to buy a Asus P8Z68-v Pro ( was gonna go deluxe then saw it had no difference ) , 8gb 1866 corsair vengeance. I have a 600t white and it looks amazing.

Now the cooler , why not air? i thought the h series look really nice , doesnt suck as much dust in the pc case .... and looks awesome

I may in a few months get the 2600K.

As for my budget, i would need to add £40 extra for the H80 , i dont want to but you know i can... . I wont regret it though if i get good performance out of it. I really like the led on the h80 as well lol. A terrible reason.

So yea still a h60? i will toss a coin lol

I would really love to know what this super secret uber TIM is so I can go back to using it once I'm finished testing the H80 against the D14.

(It's part of the reason why I've been putting this test off. I don't wanna take the H80 off >.<)

ya that case would go really well with a hydro cooler...I want one now..... And as for dust well it's pretty much the same, either way you have fans in the case. only difference is one is on the radiator and the other is on the heatsink.
