Specifications, Availability and Pricing
As with most of these Asetek built units, the construction is very similar. A copper cold plate takes the direct abuse from the processor. Behind this plate things get a touch different. The pump that usually sits in a tall housing is moved right to the top of the cold plate. This is a two-fold benefit. For one the head unit is now super low-profile, and the second is it gives the pump direct access to the cold plate. This should be less restrictive, and with the new hardware that surrounds the new square head concept, it should offer a bit better performance than the H50. To transport the coolant, it leaves and enters the head unit through ninety degree, swivel fittings that accommodate the ¼" black rubber tubing. The bulk of the 12" of line is covered with a corrugated plastic covering for added protection. This combination leaves the unit with a low-permeability.
Connected to the head unit via those two 12" tubes is, of course, the radiator. The H60 uses the thinner, 27mm thick radiator, just like the H50 used. While this radiator takes a 120mm fan, don't let that fool you too much. In order to house this unit comfortably you need 120mm of width and 155mm of height to install this unit. I know the specs say 152mm, but upon measuring my radiator it is a full 155mm tall. The fan that accompanies this radiator has its work cut out for it. This 74.4 CFM fan with 3.2mm H2O static pressure has to do battle against the same tight fin setup that we are used to seeing in these units.
As this review is going live, I quickly rechecked for stock, and I am pleasantly surprised to see a few e-tailers showing stock. Currently there are six places to find the H60 online, and I would assume these units to be hitting local Best Buy retail outlets as well as many others soon, but as I checked they still are not showing up there. While pricing varies as with anything you buy online, the H60 is commanding as much as $104 USD in some places, so shop wisely. As I look to my favorite place to shop, the $73.99 at Newegg.com is not only attractive in comparison to the high end, but is also the cheapest pricing I saw listed. Priced right along with the rest of this AIO water cooling segment, the H60 is reasonably priced, so let's see what it can do.
