Corsair H60

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme, my temps are great( 40 degrees at idle with fan at 1000 rpm) it has nothing to do with the performance of the unit. But i want to upgrade to a corsair H60 i have two white LED 120mm Xigmatek fans that i would use in a push/pull and control them with a NZXT Sentry LXE via a y pin adapter. what i wanted to know is anyone who has used the H60 is it a good unit?.

Well, for reference, with my H70 I'm running an i7-2600k @ 4.5Ghz. CPU voltage is 1.30v, my temps load hit anywhere from 70-72c. From most benchmarks, they showed that the H60 performs anywhere from 2-4c less on load than the H70.

If you put some nice fans on it, it'll perform very well.

Those fans would be worse than stock.If you want better performance than you will have to look at some 2,000 rpm fans.I use yate loon high speed fans they are about 4 bucks a piece and perform as well as any other fan,but they are loud,so I turn them down when I am not stress testing.

The reason i want to use these fans is that i have a white and black theme with my case , in 2-3 months i am going to change my theme to red or green and at that theme i will change the fans completely i already have 7 of these xigmatek white LED fans on hand, ill stick with them for now but thanks for the tip i will look at the brand when the time comes.

Really? I thought I read somewhere that the H70 is still supposed to be Corsair's top Hydro unit. If what you saw is true, the H60 is a better deal since its cheaper as well.

I have read some reviews, and with the correct set up of fans the temps between the H60 and H70 can be very close.

go with the antec H2O unit. It's the best of all these self-contained water units on the market. Beats the H70 in an apples to apples comparison (same fan config). I was going to get the H60 my self until I found the Antec unit.
