[HardwareHeaven]Corsair H60 Liquid CPU Cooler Review - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Hi all,

Just thought I'd chime in here.

I have the H60 with the stock fan and another cheap fan doing push/pull.

My temps right now on my Phenom II X4 955 BE are around 29/51c @ 4.2ghz (200 x 21) 1.5v stable (27/33c @ 3.2ghz stock)

I think a common mistake with these coolers, especially for newbies is not turning off the cool and quiet and automatic fans settings in the bios. If the pump is not running at 12v, then temps will get out of control. I also keep the fans on the cooler running full blast 24/7, noise is minimal especially for gaming.

I imagine ~5c off load once the cpu and block are lapped flat to 800+. And/or ~2-3c off with 2x gentle typhoons or some aggressive x38mm fans.

This cooler is definitely not optimized out of the box, but if you have space constraints (for actual liquid cooling) or your on a budget, this cannot be beat by any air cooler under 790g (1.7 lbs)

EDIT: Ambient temps are usually ~ 23c, and also running GTX 560 TI @ 963mhz. Lian Li PC-9F

You have to set your CPU fan speeds to turbo or whetever the highest settings are in the bios.
