4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 950 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: pretty straightforward, comes with all necessary hardware and well labeled and bagged, fit my antec 900 case but I had to lose the window/side fan, the plastic mounting tab is in the way and this thing is so big it sticks well over 3.75" (9cm) into the case, mounted to the rear fan location... don't forget to install the CPU cooler before the fan, you won't be able to after cuz the radiator/fan/pump is covering the rear most screws (ask me how I know this, if you've put together Lego's you're hip to graphic instructions and the importance of order of assembly) I was testing the fit to see if the thing would even clear my i/o and video card and got ahead of myself:)

Cons: huge, awkward cuz ts almost as thick as it is wide, more hose and you could mount it outside the case or in another location, I thought about moving the rear fan out of the case and leaving the fan/pump/radiator inside but the punched steel rear panel has a raised portion that precludes this idea without extra hardware (longer screws would probably do the trick) and then the side fan might work.

1 out of 5 eggsHard to say.

This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 950 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: Never got it working.

Cons: You have to force the unit down so hard to attach the mounting screws I'm not sure if I cracked the Mobo or what.

Other Thoughts: After installation, nothing worked. Ended up sending Mobo back to Gigabyte. Their 5 day turn around is on the 3rd week now.

3 out of 5 eggsO.K. but you can do better!

This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 950 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: Gets the job done but don't expect to get good over-clocks with this cooler!

The price is very fair but if the pump fails you better hope it's still under warranty!

Please see cons and other thoughts!


See cons and other thoughts!

Cons: Having the pump mounted on the internal fan is asking for trouble! Having four extra rubber points that need clamping means you have four extra leakage points!

It also forces the end user to have the air flow blowing the internal cases hot air onto the radiator which I always thought was a stupid design!

Replacing bad fans is not possible with the pump mounted on one of them!

No matter what cooler you pick with the new design it looks as though the air is pushed out from within your case.

I personally never believed in that methodology. I reverse that and have the cool air from outside my case blowing in with much better results.

Other Thoughts: I currently am still running the older version of this cooler and it's a better design for several reasons!

The older design only has four hose connection points as opposed to eight which is just a better design to eliminate leakage.

The older design also allows the end user to reverse the fans to have the cool air outside your case to be pulled in thru the radiator which makes a lot more sense!

This is not the cooler I was looking for and I returned it from a different vender.

I am disappointed that I need to use a much larger top mounted case cooler to get better cooling in the future over my current Antec H20 920!

If my current coolers pump fails I would also need a new system but it's been working great for over 3 years now!

It's basically give and take with closed loop coolers. Antec has moved the pump onto a fan which is a bad idea with the extra 4 clamps that were not needed with the older design.

I have been very happy with my H2O 920 and if it need to be replaced I would be forced to buy a much larger radiator with the twin fans. I would also need to add to fans of my own for a good push pull effect.

It looks as though Corsair has new tubing that matches this tubing exactly. So the big question is will the Corsairs USB controlled software work as well as my current H2O 120's software does?

From what I have read it seems like I need to wait until Antec , Thermaltake, or Corsair gets some better ideas for there coolers.

I just hope my current H2O 920 holds up for a few more years!

3 out of 5 eggsWorks well, couple of installation problems

This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 950 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: Works well, does its job. It doesn't cool like the Corsair H90 or the Cooler Master Nepton 140XL but the differences are minimal (2-3 degrees, not worth the price difference in my opinion.

Cons: The bad thing about this is the installation. Have patience because it will take longer than usual to install. In my situation, the holes for the back panel are off by a little bit.

It feels like, you need three hands to keep the radiator stable while screwing the second fan to it. There is no brace or bracket to keep the second fan centered on the radiator while screwing it to the case.

4 out of 5 eggsKeep the CPU cool

This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 950 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: Keeps the CPU nice and cool.

Cons: It is kind of loud, big in my case. The software that controls the fans and led does not work. (Keeps beeping at me)

Other Thoughts: It is a nice CPU cooler. Wish I could change the LED on it but has said the software does not work.

5 out of 5 eggsAntec 950

This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 950 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: Looks good, cools well, install can be easy if you do it with motherboard outside of case. I have 2 of these, getting the 1250 for next build gaming machine. At idle these are about as loud as a large air cpu cooler, but they quickly ramp up under load and get pretty loud, but the confidence of a cool cpu outweighs a little bit of noise. Those who are noise sensitive might want to stick with laptops, if a fan is efficient at moving lots of air, it's going to make some noise.

Cons: Large in the case, I am going to remove the second fan (Pull fan), re-install radiator on inside back of case, install second fan on outside back of case. This will reduce the size inside the case. I am going to install the 1250 the same way, using Corsair SP120's as pull fans mounted on the outside back of case.

Other Thoughts: The first one of these I bought and installed I used the thermal grease applied by Antec. The second one I removed factory grease, used Arctic Silver. I got better cooling with the Arctic Silver, first one has brief spikes when running benchmarks.
(Identical Antec 1200 cases, 4790K, Asus Z97 Deluxe, G.Skill RAM, different power supplies) I will reinstall the second one using the Arctic Silver. Who knows, I might have some air bubbles/gaps/thin/thick spots causing the occasional spike in the 90's. I have read these chips can take it, but I prefer lower temps when possible. If you are upgrading and existing machine, take the time to pull the motherboard, it will make install pretty easy, I did not have the many install problems so many others have described.
I bet they installed with motherboard in case, I know with my large hands that might be tricky, even with the large Antec 1200 case. Thank you Antec for providing innovative, new technologies at a decent price. Rebates don't hurt either!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooler for Hot CPUs

This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 950 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: The cooler cools great. My stock speed 8350 idles at 33C and gets up to 63C when stressed with prime95. You can't really ask for much better cooling.

Cons: It is not dead silent. It is quiet, but there is room to improve.

Other Thoughts: I picked this cooler up because my case is not wide enough for a beefy air cooler. I am not disappointed at all. I am glad I made the change to liquid.

5 out of 5 eggsstrictly business

This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 950 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: Antec has chosen a unique design integrating the radiator fan with the water pump. Although perhaps not the quietest solution, it is worth it to me for getting rid of the questionable practice of putting an electromagnetic device (a powerful electric water pump) DIRECTLY on the CPU, or having to go the full nine yards and go with a full-blown water loop. I believe I have observed a water pump (from the 'other guys' that make all-in-one water coolers) which mount directly on the CPU cause some sort of interference to integrated graphics firsthand. Whether it was a proper observation or not, -just the risk of any kind of unwanted corruption was enough to sell me on Antec's design! This device will keep an FX 8350 at or below 55*C running Prime95 on all cores at 4.0 ghz and will still have plenty of headroom on its fan/pump.

Cons: Installation, just as others have reported, is very cumbersome and takes a lot of patience. It just is.

Other Thoughts: Its little brother, the 650 works very well, too, and is actually a tiny bit simpler and easier to install, but may not quite be able to keep up like this one can on the monstrous FX8350.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat concept

This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 950 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: seems to wok as advertised

Cons: mounting holes DO NOT align with case holes.

device fits SNUG in fan space. snug fit allowed me to secure fan with ZIP TIES to help support weight.

need 3 hands to secure cooling plate to asus mb and amd cpu. artic silver causes HUGE slip n slide while compressing springs of securing screws.

no sure, without disassembley, if enough artic silver is on cpu/cooling plate interface.
