They bolt on, same as any other aftermarket CPU cooler will. The Corsair Hydro series aren't REAL watercooling anyway, so there's really nothing TO know about it. You bolt it on, and it works. Make sure the pump is wired up to an always on 3pin connection on your board. That's it.

The H80 is better than the H60.

its exactly the same procedure just with a different bracket plus it has instructions in the box its literally like an Ikea instruction sheet its really simple. When you get it, just relax and read you will get it done. thumb.gif

+1 for poneerisloud, the h series are more closely related to air coolers in my opinion. think of them more as a air cooler, but instead of copper pipes transferring the heat away, it uses water filled pipes.

also, if you can fit it, take the h80

Not looking to start the great debate - again, but I would use a quality HSF over anything less than the H100 as the HSF is cheaper, more thermally efficient and quieter. If these cooler properties don't matter or you must use an H80 for some reason, so be it. Test results show that the Corsair/Antec closed-loop-coolers are a poor choice for most people even without the obvious water leak liability that can damage hundreds of dollars in PC hardware.

All of the coolers come with installation instructions.

That maybe smile.gif but over stock the H60 runs 10-15 degress lower than a stock FX AMD cooler ! (or it does for me.)

...you could get an After market Air Cooler for alot less money for a similar Temperature loss, but that kinda takes the fun out of it. this range is a great way to get into water cooling.

As for fitting...

the H60 Comes with the CPU mount setup for Intel processors, if you have an intel board you will have to modify the the Back plate on the Mother board to fit it.( the kit comes as part of the package and its pretty straight forward.)
if its AMD, all you need to do is remove 4 screws from the mounting, and it then slaps onto the CPU/Socket quite snugly.

Why would you want to "get into water-cooling" if it is inferior to air cooling for the same price? If you want to do it as a hobby, that's fine but most folks just want a quality, cost effective, quiet cooling system for their CPU. The Corsair/Antec CLC series is NONE of those and has the real liability to leak water and damage PC hardware.

That's why I pointed out the CLC issues above. wink.gif

As always, Buy What Makes you Happy.

While it is true, that large air coolers are more efficient than the H50, H60, H70, H80 units....they're also a LOT larger in size. What if somebody can't physically fit a super large heatsink in their case? The Hydro series coolers absolutely SHINE in this aspect. I wouldn't mind putting an H50 (or similar) in my HTPC machines honestly, which those WOULD fit. Otherwise I'm limited to stock style coolers (blow down).
