The old H60 from several years ago cannot do the job, the newest one with larger hoses and much better pump design is a winner.

ive actually had trouble getting my hands on H-60s for basic builds. Combined with that they wont work on adapter brackets like the G-10 and im afraid ive abandoned them all together. But they did a decent job so no arguments there.

Both motherboards are Asus 99FX Pro 2.0. The attachment to the AM+ socket is very easy. I use two NZXT Phantom 410 Towers as well. Lots of fans in that case with several USB3 ports. Nice case/box to have but there are many others to choose from as well.

The H60 radiator fits nicely top/back of the tower. Click the banner to see my current specs and stats.

I know from using the H60 on my 6700K that the orientation of the water block on the CPU makes a huge difference 90 degrees rotation of the water block was a night and day difference.

How do I know if I have the latest edition H60? I bought mine about 18 months ago. And I was going to use it on the AMD FX-8350 I'm about to but to get about 5 or more Ghz out of it. I'm upgrading from an AMD FX-4100 quad core to the FX-8350.

Having a water cooler doesn't mean your temps will never reach the same levels as an air cooler it just takes considerably longer and considerably more energy to heat up water than it does with copper/aluminum. I wouldn't consider an H60 to be "low end" water cooling. Anything that's not a full custom loop for your CPU, GPU or both is considered "Low End" simply because of the limitations of said custom loop being so much higher than said closed solution.

5GHz might be possible if you win the lottery with a good chip. The H60 will do pretty well cooling the CPU, but you will need to also keep your VRM's cool. If your motherboard has good heat sinks on the VRM's, you need to have some side fan or supplementary fan blowing down on those VRM's or you could fry your motherboard. VRM cooling is an overlooked factor when choosing to watercool if you are not doing a custom rig.
I highly recommend Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut paste for your build. It costs a little more, but will enable you to cool 10-12C more than the next best paste. You can also use it to replace any thermal tape or compound on your VRM heat sinks and/or GPU

I had two H60's and they worked fine. IRT your question, I'm afraid I don't know. I wouldn't sweat it too much.

"to get 5 or more GHz out of it" is asking too much. You need a special chip, you need much, much better cooling than and H60 can provide. A custom waterloop is more like it. You need a CH5FZ or a Sabertooth 990FX R2. At 5 GHz any 8350 is probably pulling 250 watts under load.
