Looks just fine. no different than the h50 and h70.
I don't understand why you people are complaining about the looks.

It doesn't have a Corsair sticker so it cannot look good or perform better, it's a rip off obviously even though Corsair doesn't manufacture their cooler themselves /sarcasm

Corsair doesn't make their own LC units.

The units are made by Asetek.

Antec worked with Asetek to make this unit.

The official word from engineering:

The maximum fan current is 800 mA, the limit is determine by the switch transistor internal on the PCB.
But the overall current consumption, the Motherboard spec has to been taken in to account.
From plugging in as many fans as I could I got a max draw of about 400mA

Hello Asetek_Stu,

I have some questions about the Kuhler H20 for you, if you don't mind:
  1. Is the mounting hardware identical to the hardware used in the H50 and H70? Could I remove my H50, put the Kuhler in it's place, and simply tighten the screws?
  2. Is there a prefered orientation for the Kuhler? I did my H50 with the nozzles for both the radiator and the pump toward the bottom of the case, which was a real pain to do with the inflexible cables of the H50.
  3. Does the Kuhler come with the additional screws needed to mount an additional fan in a push/pull setup?
  4. In the description for installing the Kuhler, I noted that it said the fan should draw air in from the case and exhaust it out the back...this is different then the H50 and the H70, which had you get air from outside the case, and push it into the case. For me, I need to know, as my case (an ATCS 840) is fairly well setup for the pull air from the outside of the case and exhaust it from with the case style of fan orientation.
  5. Is the inner diameter of the tubing greater then that of the H50 and/or H70?
  6. It's mentioned that the fan RPM is controlled by the liquid temperature inside the pump...is there a way to connect that to the motherboard, or other monitoring accessory? That's information I'm sure people would like to know.

Thanks in advance for your time Asetek_Stu!

Not at all!

1. The mounting hardware is indeed identical on this product and you will be able to do exactly as you described.

2. There is no preferred orientation. With the Gen 3 cold plate it is not an issue.

3. It does not come with any additional screws. However, the screws for the fans have not changed and thus you can use your fan screws from your previous Asetek powered cooler.

4. So Airflow is actually something I am going to write about on our blog. The fact is that the cooler the air is entering the rad, the better the cooler will perform. It is of course personal preference on how you setup up your chassis. Ultimately, you can mount it anyway you want, but the liquid cooler will perform better when cooler air is moving through the hex.

5. The ID of the tubing is, in fact, smaller. However, the flow rate is equivalent. The corrugation of the old tubes creates miniature back currents in the tube vs. the new tube has a smooth inner path. Thus, despite a slightly smaller ID, the flow rate remains the same The tricky thing about flow rates is that higher isn't always better. It lives on a logarithmic curve. Too fast and the liquid spends too little time on the coldplate and the hex, too slow and the liquid spends too much time in those areas. Thus, there is an ideal range that we have observed and optimized our systems for.

We heard the cries that the old tubes were a pain in the ass and this was our answer =)

6. The fan is only controlled by the liquid temp when the fan is plugged into the provided fan header that comes from the pump. Feel free to plug your fans into the mobo, another fan control system, or anything else.

I hope I answered all your questions and feel free to ask me any additional ones you may come up with =)

BTW, we are giving one of these babies away every friday for the next month or so =)

http://www.asetek.com/blog/205-asete...ravaganza.html

The liquid temp is measured on the pump and the fan speed is scaled to keep that liquid temperature in check. It's a pretty nice feature if you ask me and frankly it keeps the unit pretty quiet until i actually need the performance.
