H60 vs Coolit... Are they the same?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Okay so I'm looking to get a H60/H70 and I was glancing through items on ebay and I found one claiming to be H60 just CoolIT rebranded... it is a good £15-20 cheaper than an actual H60 but will it be just as good?
I know Corsair and CoolIT went in partnership and the H60 was the first product of that deal.. So I guess it would be pretty similar thinking.gif

Here's the eBay item in question.
4.0GHz - 1090T

Here's the eBay item in question.

I had a CoolIT before I got my RASA kit. It was good, but spend just a LITTLE more and get an H100, you'll be sorry if you didn't.

Honestly the top end Noctua cools better than the CoolIT and H60. wink.gif

It looks like a CoolIT ECO II (2) ALC.
I ran one for about 6 months before jumping to a custom loop.
They work work well, my temperatures were on par with what I've read about the H60. Within 2-3C.
I was using this the other day while I did some loop maintence, with a 2600k at 4.8Ghz (1.488V) I was getting around 75C with 2 GT1850's.

High FPI with the radiator.
I say go for it, they are tidy little units and CoolIT have been in the liquid cooling game longer than Corsair, IIRC the Corsairs are rebranded CoolIT's rather than vice versa as the auction states. This was at least true for the 1st gen from Corsair.

I'd be hesitant about using that 140mm fan on it though, seems like the air would escape around the edges, through the path of least resistance.

Edit: This is assuming you are decided on liquid cooling thumb.gif
Edit 2: Full specs are here

I'm not decided on water cooling, although I would like to fit a custom loop in the future, I was just looking for something space friendly as I'm not too sure if many of the big air coolers will fit in my case with the side panel fan, and clearing the vengeance RAM with their heat spreaders..

My case is Midi-ATX (Dimensions : 190mm (W) x 505mm (H) x 500mm (L))
So with the side fan and the height of an air cooler like the Noctua D14, I'm worried it might not fit?

I'm looking to reach 4GHz and keep the temps reasonable under average gaming loads, playing BF3/Crysis2 on maxed settings.. So I can see it would be wise to spend that little bit more for decent cooling rather than buying a cooler and then finding that it can't keep the temps low enough to be safe for constant use..
With the 1090t and its stock heatsink and fan I can reach 3.72GHz and not break 67*C on CPU and 56*C on Cores. I know that's about the safe limit for the Thuban chip but that was just a bit of testing while I was bored rolleyes.gif
Right now I'm sitting at 3.4GHz @ 1.3v with 1.35v under 100% load and it idles around 30*C Core//40*C CPU

The only reason to go corsair is that you know for sure that if it leaks you'll get an awesome warranty. They will replace all damaged part (if it leaks within warranty)

Assuming it's your sig rig, it's hard to tell.
I can't really find any info on it. It's hard to say how much clearance you'll have with the side fan in place.

If you're after something that will do the job untill you get a custom loop then it doesn't seem a bad choice for the price.
AFAIK CoolIT only sell to OEM manufacturers so it's true you won't get the amazing warranty that comes with Corsair coolers. I can't say I've heard of anyone actually making use of the warranty with any of these though. Admittedly I haven't been looking

I know it's only hearsay but I left my CooIT radiator hanging from the CPU mount over a long weekend and the tubing hadn't budge. I even just tried giving it a tug, it didn't move.
You would have to do something pretty spectacular to do any damage to these, in which case, chances are the warranty would be void.
Then again when you're buying second hand you never know how good it's old life was.

I should have said, but yeah it is that rig. My case is 190mm in total width and the fan sticks 25mm from the side panel so that leaves 165mm to spare and given that the height of the D14 is 160mm that doesn't leave much space for how much the m/b+cpu is taking up from the case... So by quick measurements it either will not fit or it will but be very tight, Which was the main reason I was going to opt for a Corsair H series...
The Silver Arrow is 162.7mm in height so that is out of the question aswell..

I think you may be out of luck with any of those coolers or the Hyper212 (159mm).
I'd assume the back panel takes around 15mm off the total depth of the case. You ought to be able to fit spare connectors around there and considering a molex connector is around 10mm, 15mm seems less than generous. Add the MB & CPU mount I'd take that up to 20mm.

So I'd say you're looking for a cooler that will fit within 145mm.
I'm not up to date with air coolers particularly, aside from the general consensus of the few mentioned.

Why wait to jump in for a full loop? The XSPC RX240 kit looks as if it could fit in the base of the case if you remove the HD cages, otherwise you could sit a 360 on the top if you don't mind it being external.

This is the older revision, it runs a little louder and isn't as efficient.
Nice find though

Seen that one when I was having a look but kinda skipped past thinking that for £35 it wouldn't be as good quality and cooling as others..
There is also a H70 with 2 fans for £55 + £10 its also second hand so no warranty for the cooler or any components damaged if anything had to occur.. but considering the Core H70 new is about £70 and doesn't include any fans that seems like another good deal.

EDIT: I don't really have the spare cash at the moment to go to a full loop hence the reason I was looking for something in the meantime as I don't like gaming with the stock cooler too much.
