    It's back to basics with a 120mm LCS, we check out the new Corsair Hydro Series H60 - a single fan 120mm AIO Liquid cooler series. No extravagant software control, just a simple enough cooler with ni...

    Yeah I noticed that it has already been fixed though.

    Is it compatible with AM4? Also, since I am new to watercooling, can I use a regular 120mm fan mount at the back of my case to mount the radiator?

    while closed loops are aesthetically pleasing i still prefer a good aircooler i would take few degrees more on temperature to remove a potential point of failure from the equation ((the pump )) although really nice to see the 120 mm performing so close to the d15 from noctua..that's actually impressive !

    Pumps are pretty damn reliable these days, Asetek had years to perfect the manufacturing process of those things.
    Corsair is even giving 5 year warranty on several of their AIO's

    I can't stand those bulky air coolers anymore, while they were "fancy" years ago when it all started, right now I love the clean interior of a computer with a watercooled CPU, even if the performance is equal or slightly inferior to one of those big tower coolers.

    2018 and forward, watercooling all the way for any performance computer.

    hehe when you have a leaf blower like mine ...cleaning em is not an issue ! and i know but it still can happen while the aircooler will just keep going although those aio's are so tempting !

    "clean interior" means - not crowded, or not filled with "stuff" taking space.

    Wasn't talking about not having dust on them.

    I have to say i´m surprised by the performance of this "little" cooler. It performed very well and basically tied with the H80. And it seems to be well priced.

    This makes me wonder if finally i should retire my trusty Noctua U12P SE2 and replace it with a nice liquid cooler. Too bad Corsair insists on the wiring mess that really ruins the appeal of their coolers, what a letdown...

    Hilbert, do you think you can explain to Corsair that the wiring mess is "killing" their coolers?...

    I'm missing comparison with older (two, or are there more?) models.

    I'll give you an even better answer to that: i have the older H60 model (2016) and on my 8700K @4.5GHz, (not delidded) has lower temps than this 4790k @4.6GHz,
    but with a small caveat: i replaced the very noisy and shitty default corsair fans and replaced them with industrial PWM noctuas (max 3k RPM) with around 7.50 mmH2O static pressure, I think, maybe they do a little better job than Corsair's default fans.

    valentyn0 : hehe, yeah that corsair fan is terrible, but acceptable at 700rpm ;-)

    Ah... this reminds me of my good ol' H50, first AIO water cooler I had. Fun fact - it still works flawlessly to this day with a i7 920 for almost 10 years now for the guy I sold them to.

    it would ve been nice a comparison with the previous model. i still have mine cooling my 4790 with the same temps as it did on 2015 when i bought it, almost 3 years ago.

    So so happy with this cooler, it is way better than my previous Antec H20 620....

    I think the highest I've seen my cpu temp go is 50c with this new cooler, it's cooling a stock FX 8320....
