My H60 cools worse than my CNSP10X Extreme and it is louder. You might want to look into some other options. I would go back to my air cooler if it was not such a huge deal getting this working (backplate on the h60 shorted my mobo).

I recommend go for the Antec Kühler 620 because
how it's has a automatically detect the temps and decrease the
temps while the h60 don't and another one is that you can connect the fan to the
pump/water block however the h60 has a quieter fan thus easer to install so get the 620!

I hate stock fans regardless. In my opinion, it's like going for a cheap pre applied thermal compound versus the ~$10 I would pay for better. I now only use Enermax Magma 120mm fans now. But again, those are my own opinions.

In this case the cheap thermal compound Corsair uses is better than the $10 stuff. wink.gif lulz

I'll see if I can get some pics up tonight. I have already taken it off and put the Mugen 2 back on. I'm still hesitant to open the 620 at this point. I'm definitely still planning to return the H60 to amazon regardless. I'm just going to go with a real WC loop for my 920.

Honestly I cannot say. Because I don't know if Acetek continued the use of Shin-Etsu G751 to the Antec Kuhler or if they went with Antec's stock pastes.

I know that the Corsair Hydro Series all have Shin-Etsu G751 on them and that it's better than AS5 if only for the curing time.

So if Acetek uses G751 on the Kuhler I'd say yes it's better. If not, then probably not. My apologies for a vague answer. Unfortunately I don't have all the information to take a definitive stance.wink.gif

Did you use the right set of plastic spacers? Is your board bent that badly?

If the H60 was resting on the Caps around the Socket, spacers aren't going to help one bit. mellowsmiley.gif

I went to take some pics, and it looks like im definitely having this problem. There are some caps near the top of the block/pump that prevent it from making full contact with the CPU...frown.gif


It rests on these caps basically preventing the top half from making contact...doesnt even touch the TIM...

DSC01753-1.jpg

Even left dents on the the edges of the caps from where I stupidly tried to tighten the pump/block down. Im surprised I didnt completely ruin them.
