Any difference between H60 and H80?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Hey folks... I am going to be using an Asus Sabertooth Z77 motherboard and an i5 3570k CPU...

 

I was adviced to go with the water cooling solution and I will.

 

there is a 30$ difference in price between H60 and H80.. One goes for 60 bucks and the other goes for 90 bucks.

 

Will a corsair H60 be compatible with my system and keep my system cool?

 

I am aiming for a 4.5 ghz OC for my i5 3570k.

 

Thanks in advance.

Both are compatible with socket LGA1155. The Corsair H80 radiator is double-thick (38mm) compared to 25mm on the H60. You'll get temps that are a few degrees better with the H80, obviously, but nevertheless you should have no problem hitting 4.5GHz even when using the H60.

As stated above, you will see no issues keeping your CPU cooler with either of those. I would opt for the H60 on a budget, but if you have the $ grab the H80. That's what I did in the H50/H70 era. My H70 cools great. You can always add a fan for push/pull on the H60, however you may not see a huge improvement on temps.

Good luck on your decision!

Thank you for your answer... Again i am only be hitting 4.5ghz since 670 SLI will be handled nicely with games on 4.5ghz. Thats what i am hoping. I dont care about 3Dmark scores.

 

h60 seems to be a nicer choice for me than...

 

If i replace the 2 fans on the h60 via something even better later down the road, will i see a noticeable difference? or will the stock fans do the job well?

Thanks to both of you guys

 

+rep

 

Unfortunately i am on a budget at the moment. SPending way too much for my trip to USA and got new componenets and was set and would not be spending anymore money for my PC, but i just learned today that my Zalman CNPS11x cooler will not fit my Asus Sabertooth Z77 because of the thermal armor on the motherboard.

 

Thats why I will have to get a new CPU cooler. There for 60 bucks is a better option than 90 bucks at the moment.

There is only 1 fan on the h60, and it is quite effective at cooling the radiator. However, it can be quite loud when running at full speed. Personally, I replaced my h60 stock fan with two Scythe Gentle Typhoons AP-15s. They are relatively quiet and have a ton of static pressure.

Ah i see

 

I have a Akasa Viper CPU cooler which is really efficient and quite but it is 140mms... I might get a 120mm version for that fan...

 

Question. Since the h60 has 1 fan, how did you replace it with 2 fans?

 

I am very noob on water cooling sorry :)

there isnt as big a difference between the 60 adn 80 as there is with the H100 , what it really depends on is if you are going to overclock or if you just want a quiet computer , the H60 will cool it just fine at stock speeds but you dont have a whole lot of overclocking space , same with the H80 , you might get 400 MHZ over at most , the H100 will give you a bit better but still no more than mabe 400Mhz overclock maybe 600 running fans full speed!

Use the H70. It has the same rad as the 80 but comes with no fans which makes it cheaper. Since you'll be replacing the fans anyway, its the best compromise for you.

My main target is 4.5 ghz on i5 3570k.

 

To be honest at the moment i only have 1 Gigabyte 670OC but will SLI it soon. Maybe 4.0 with 670SLI might handle perfectly and I might stick with 4.0 ghz.
