For my build that il be doing in a few weeks time, I want to use a AIO because I want my case to be kept clean and good looking. I have a budget of ~£55-60. These are some of the ones Ive been looking at....

ThermalTake Water 2.0 Performer
Corsair H60 (2013 Edition)
Antec Kuhler 620
CM Seidon 120m

I want the best performer and have personaly been liking the Water 2.0

Which do you think I should pick?

The H70 uses a considerably thicker rad, 50mm vs 27mm on the Water 2.0 Performer, so it will perform better (AFAIK), I can't find any reviews comparing the two directly though.

The H70 rad is nearly twice as thick, I don't think there's much competition

That and the H70 comes with higher quality fans.

I read somewhere that the fans dont support PWM and the pump is taken from a weak H50, is this true?

These fans do support PWM, they're the same ones that are used on the H80i and H100i.
The pump is the same as the H50 but I'm not sure how it compares to the pump in the Water 2.0 Performer.

The pump in the 2.0 is *Much* more powerfull than the one lf a H50, it is good enough to handle a 240mm rad. The 2.0 is still in the lead for me untill I manage to search up some benches

As far as tests go I have found that the 2.0 either matches or is 1*C hotter than a H100, I feel surprized

Done some trawling through reviews. There are no direct comparisons however there's enough info to say the Water 2.0 Performer does perform better.
There was a direct comparison between the H60 and the Performer, the H60 ran hotter by about 5-6 degrees.

And how does the H60 + H70 compare?

They're pretty similar, the H70 is about 2 degrees better.

So the 2.0 is potencially about 5*C cooler, that just won it for me... Feel free to pitch in with other opinions as its always nice to learn and I think I may not be the only one with this dilema so this could help other people

It does seem like the better option, I didn't realise how weak the pumps were on the H70 and below

I rather AIO because of the reasons in the OP, yes Corsair has a 5yr warranty but could someone find out how long is the 2.0s warranty?

Because the H220 will cost over £100, he has a budget of £60

ThermalTake only offer a 1 year warranty on their water cooling products.
