Confused on AMD H60 install

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I've been wanting to upgrade from the stock heatsink for awhile now and at first I was going to just get a Hyper 212+, but realized that it would not be ideal because of it's weight, because I transport my computer at the end of each term from my dorm to my house and then back.

So I've decided on water cooling, and the H60 looks really light. But I can't find a good guide on how to install it on a AMD motherboard online. Can someone here give me a quick rundown?

Also, I saw that it requires two connections to the motherboard? Would these two connections just be replacing the existing CPU fan connection and current the 120mm fan connection?

it is very simple to install, i can't explain it, but it will come with a guide and i no they are very simple!

It will come with instructions on how to install so there's no need to worry about that.
And as for the two connections they will be the pump and a 120mm fan, the pump will connect to a 3 pin power connector on the motherboard and the fan should connect to the CPU fan plug If i remember correctly.

Isnt your sig rig a bit much for a Corsair 430w? I dont think a h60 should be your next upgrade to be honest. If you keep adding stress to the power supply, it will fry your system!

Top 5 countdown of problems you might run into.

5. Get Old Thermal Paste on Motherboard
4. Can get screws that will allow you to apply a Second Fan.
3. You put on the wrong fitting for the Front Mounting Bracket
2. You dont push the screws in the Fitting into the Frount mounting Bracket all the way down before you start attaching the the Back Bracket.
1. You screw the Top Mounting Bracket all the way down Before Applying the Pump and Coldplate not allowing some room to secure the pump and coldplate on.

Notables

The case opening for the back of the motherboard isnt quite wide enough the fit the back mounting bracket.

Not knowing what header to plug the pump in.

attaching the radiator before you attach the pump, not allowing enough room to attach the pump.

The front mounting Bracket wont pull up far enough to enable you to secure the pump and coldplate (See Problem 1)

The problems are endless, mostly due to the retarded instructions given.

Got to youtube and type Installing Corsair H70 or H60 and you have a pleathera off videos of people F-ing up, but finally getting it installed.

The instructions are so easy to follow, and it is so easy to install. It is easier then the stock cooler, and many after market ones for that matter. Just take your time and due care with the rad when doing so, because if the fluid leaks kiss it good bye. biggest advice is to install rad and fan first then the cpu block.

I think you are fine on the PSU for now. The Hyper 212+ is not a heavy heat sink at all. I had a heatsink that weighed about 6 times as much and it was just fine. With that being said i do not recommend the Hyper 212+ for higher wattage cpu's but the 95w quad core you have should be fine but the H60 will perform much better.

You really think so? I've been told that I could've added the Hyper 212+ easily enough and OC and be fine with the PSU I have.

Does water cooling take more power?

EDIT: Oh wow, a lot of you just posted in the time it took me to reply to False Idol.

Also, fapestar, I'm not sure I understood all of your post... =X
It might just be because it's late.

No it doesnt

This is one of my favorite one, shows you what not to do.

I see one where a guys rips his whole CPU out trying to take off the old HSF and the whole video was halarious. But I cant find it

Well the pump takes more power then a heatsink, so technically, yes, it uses more power.
