Corsair delivers a winner in the all-in-one liquid cooling segment with the release of the H60. This is supposed to be the "middle child" of the trio of coolers. Both the pricing and the naming pretty much set that in our minds right out of the gate. I am really taken by surprise to see the fantastic results of what a few changes to the series can do for this cooler. The new head design with a more direct injection of coolant to the cold plate along with a superior mounting system really rear up and show what they can do in this instance. So what's not to like, right?
There are a couple of issues that need to be covered. Keep in mind that the sample I received is one of the first built and even in the week or so that I have had the H60, changes are being made. I had an issue installing this unit with the AMD hardware. I've since come to find out this issue has already been seen, and I was assured in the email that this issue will be resolved in all the units that will make it to the shelves. The second issue is against its claim for a more silent operation. It could be a fluke that I got an overzealous fan, but by the RPM it was spinning with being in spec; I don't think that was the issue. Lastly, is the mystical pair of springs. While I assumed they are for the AMD installation, the springs don't offer enough "spring" for that application. So I am left confused as to their true use.
The small issues I had won't reflect too harshly in the score as I can overlook a bit of noise, and to be honest, I am an Intel fan right now, so for my daily use the H60 fits the bill just fine as it sits, however the availability will hurt the overall number. With Corsair already on the major issue on the AMD mounting hardware, I really have nothing to "complain" about. While it might be louder than both the H50 and H70, it does a better job. With the pricing being where it is at Newegg.com for $73.99, I have to say the H60 pulls its weight and then some. $30 less than the H70 and similarly priced to Antec's new unit, I really don't see a choice anymore. As soon as these units hit the shelf, I advise if you are in the market for this type of cooler, the H60 is where my vote goes to anyone on this quest!
