CoolIT ECO II 120 better than my hyper 212?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so this watercooling CPU thingie caught my eye as it was going for quite cheap and I just wanted to know would I expect to see better tempatures when compared to my 212+? if so to what extent and would you recommend me getting this product?

Please don't hate on me for asking about this pre-made watercooling thing. I understand many people in this section might hate them.

It's basically a Corsair H60. They're more or less identical, since CoolIT made both.

I would stick with your hyper 212+, unless you're willing to get some better fans for the H60, and only then will you notice a fair drop in temperatures. If you just use it straight out of the box with the stock fans, the difference won't be THAT much

Other than that, the bottom line is that the ECO II is an entry-level liquid cooling kit so it's not going to be that great or a major upgrade over your 212+.

Thanks for the suggestion/post.

This is correct, on everything.

Unless you have some high powered fans, it's probably not worth your while.

I went from a Scythe Mugen 2 (w/ 2 3000rpm Ultra Kaze in push/pull) to the CoolIt Freezone Elite with only 1 3000rpm Ultra Kaze. My results were greatly improved.

But the FZE is no where near the same as this coolit eco 2 as the FZE has a tec on it as well. So I can't really compared the 2 units.

But if you're looking into a all-in-one liquid cooling solution I'd suggest either an h80 or an h100 by corsair. H100 if you have room for a 240 rad. Although keep in mind you don't want to use the stock fans if you want the best performance out of them.
