True 120 vs Corsair H60 or Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I've had my True 120 on my i7 920 for years. I thought it as time for a change.

I was looking through the reviews of the Corsair H60 and H80, as well as the Water 2.0 Performer and Pro. The H80 and Pro have bigger radiators and come with two fans.

From the reviews, both the more expensive models of each brand in default configuration beat out their cheaper counterparts by a few degrees.

Thats the thing, in default configurations, the cheaper ones have these dinky little fans that probably suck.

On my true 120 I have a pair of 38mm Delta fans in a push pull. So if I just bought the cheaper version of one of these brands, slapped on my Deltas and tested, would they atleast meet the more expensive versions performance wise, or maybe even be better?

I'm looking more to quiet down my case while still keeping the same temps, or possibly even better, so I may only use 1 delta fan if I can swing it. To give you an idea of how many fans I have:

2 Scythe (cant remember models, they have thin blades, but they're not the gentle typhoon ones) fans on the front, 1 at the top, 1 on bottom.
1 massive 200mm fan on top
1 more Scythe fan (same as on the front) on the back sucking air out
2 Delta 120mm fans on my True 120 blowing air up towards the 200mm fan
1 fan on my GPU that sucks air in and out the back (built in fan)
1 fan on my PSU that sucks air in and out the back (built in fan)

I really want to quiet down my PC. Obviously I cant do much about the GPU and the PSU fans. Nor the 200mm fan. As they are very quiet if set properly and provide good airflow.

The back fan would be replaced by the by whaterver is on the radiator. The only other two fans are the Delta 120mm fans.

I mostly keep my CPU at stock. It's more than powerful enough to handle what I want. But I know it can handle as high as 4Ghz safely.

So what do you guys think, can the H60 or Water 2.0 Performer handle this? If not, what if I keep the Delta fans and put them on the H60 or Performer, just at alot lower speed? These things are near silent at low speed and still blow air well.

If I go with the H60 or Performer, I save myself money there too, about $30-$40.

Can I get some advice or recommendations?

I'm not very familiar with the Tt cooler, but the H60 should perform better than your True120.
I had one briefly, but switched to a Megahalems when they came out, the H50 (v1) I used after was right on par with the Mega.

If you were going to buy the newer 2013 version w/ better plate/pump/hoses etc I'm sure even stock it would be a few C better.
Add a few fans w/ decent static pressure for push/pull and you'd be all set. Good bargain ones are Swiftech Helixs, they're only $8 a pop and comparable to Gentle Typhoon AP-15s.

Well I mean alot of computer shops may be trying to get rid of their old stock first.

Was looking for the new model number, you got it for me, thanks. But you didn't need to be an ass about it.
