Antec Kuhler 620 vs High end air cooler

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
How would this setup do against something like the megahalems or dh14? I am going to push pull with 2 dc centaur's which im pretty sure they are 3000rpm fans with good static pressure. I saw a review with the h50 against the megahalems on ocn and they were pretty similar. Should i expect those kind of results? (similar to high end coolers) or is it just worth getting the kuhler 920?

The H50, was the first generation, the H60/H70 would probably be 2nd generation, while the H80 is the 3rd generation and going to be the closer comparison to the 920. The 620 was the 2nd generation, so stock should be pretty similar to the H60/H70, and much better than the H50 (so I've read)

It's not bad...but like all of the all in one coolers its a gateway drug to a full loop. I had decent temps until the summertime, then it got too hot and I went to a custom loop.

Uhm... H50/H70 was 1st gen(Asetek), H60 was 1st gen(CoolIT), 620/920 2nd gen(Asetek) and H80/H100 was 2nd gen(CoolIT)

As Stock H80 > 620 / 920 > H100, but if you add more fans to H100 & 620 they should perform better then there counterparts.

Antec 620 is probably gonna give you somewhere between H50 and H70 performance. Probably closer to H70 based on most benches. And the fact that i have one. But I dont use stock fan. I owned a Copper TRUE before this thing and honestly it was a little better I guess. But the Copper TRUE is right up there with the D14 and SA in performance and my Kuhler 620 is only about 2-3c worse at best, or worse, whatever.
