[Vortez] Antec KÜHLER H2O 620 Review

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter

Last week, we had an in-depth look at Antec’s KÜHLER H2O 920. We concluded that despite the good performance, it was let down by its noise and reliance on high RPM fans to achieve its full potential. On the whole, it still proved to be an improvement over previous all-contained liquid cooling (ALC) units such as the CoolIT Eco and the Corsair H50, not surprising given the thicker radiator of the KÜHLER H2O 920. However, those not convinced by the price of the latter can opt for Antec’s cheaper offering, the KÜHLER H2O 620. This unit is more akin to the like of the Corsair and CoolIT mentioned above, featuring a thinner radiator than the 920 and a single fan. At around half the price of the 920, the 620 is a promising unit that features many of the former’s main advantages such as a compact package that can fit into an system regardless of size, zero-maintenance and leak-proof design, and warranty that covers any faults.

I wonder how these things work with a Noctua fan.

Props to Vortez, I found the review to be very thorough, accurate and definitive in its results.

I have one on my Phenom II! It's not bad. Decent but loud with the stock fan, good with one GentleTyphoon, and excellent with two GentleTyphoons. With the two GT fans it actually almost competes with my old NH-D14, which I traded for this because I needed to free up space in my case.

They tested it with a couple of NF-P12s smile.gif.

Then I will read it. I'm not a fan of these "semi" water cooled kits hence why i did no investigation. But they are getting cheaper relative to the Corsairs so one day I might pick one up.

The results of this review seem to be different from other Kuhler 620 reviews I've read. Other reviews have the 620 handily beating an H50 and nearing the performance of an H70 whereas in this review the 620 doesn't beat an H50.
