Yep. Ours is 20mm spacing, with a 1500 RPM fan, theirs is 15mm spacing with a 2000 RPM fan.

Other than that, they include the Asetek Chillcontrol software and we don't. They have an LED in the pump cap and we don't.

We've got a 5 year warranty instead of 2 and we're pricing the H110 a bit cheaper than the X60.

George will the H110 fit in a 650 d in a push pull config with all fans on the inside of the case?

maybe, unless your mobo mosfetts and ram is not in the way.

Unlike the DIY watercooling guys, AIO coolers work the other way around. People buy the case first and then decide of it's going to fit their cooler. Sometimes this is done simultaneously (I'd like to own an H100-style cooler, which case should I buy?) but usually it's "I've got a , can I fit an H100i?"

With DIY cooling guys, they know they're going to build some nice custom loop, so they start looking at cases that offer them the flexibility. "Okay, to cool my 3770K @ 5 GHz and my overclocked 680s, I'm going to need at least two 240mm radiators, in push-pull. Which cases should I be looking at?" This is almost always the situation.

Which is also the problem with stuff like a 360. There are, what, 10? 15 cases on the market that'll fit a 360, stock? And the guys buying them are buying DIY components because those cases were designed with that in mind.

Not saying we'll never do one, just that it's something to think about.

Not everyone buying these AIO solutions is some clueless newb George, some of us just want better temp and noise performance than is possible on pure-air, without all the stress and hassle of running our own custom loop. I'll be buying the X60 over this Corsair offering, purely because I've already had the custom mounting bracket cut to fit a 280 w/15mm spacing into the top of my HAF-X, but I'd buy a double-thick 420mm AIO without a second thought even if it meant modding my case, and I doubt I'm alone considering the number of people who're happily tearing their graphics cards apart to mount Corsair and Antec AIO's on those - such people are hardly going to freak out at the prospect of drilling a few screw holes.

Is 20mm better or 15mm?

That's just fan spacing, 15mm means that fans are butted up against one another. 20mm means there's a small (5mm) gap between fans.

 

The only part which makes either better is case compatibility. Which that just depends on what your case supports.

 

It's fairly even, split wise, on what cases support in terms of fan spacing.

 

That's the unfortunate problem of water-cooling; it's taken awhile for the industry to develop standards between case manufactures, radiator makers, & fan makers.

The one that will fit your case is better.

Your case uses 20mm spacing, so you would use H110 instead.

You mean you weren't around when EVERYONE was running either a Hyper212+ or D14? Please rolleyes.gif

People are going to do whatever takes them the least effort, great bang for the buck and good performance...looking nice is also a bonus. CLC's are filling that niche excellently.

IMO, these AIOs are pretty ugly. The Phanteks is the nicest looking non custom loop cooler.
