2 out of 5 eggsWould recommend buying a different cooler

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

Pros: It works! it keeps my cpu around 35C when playing games. The RGB led looks pretty cool!

Cons: After afew minuets of being almost silent, the pump starts making a grinding noise which gets very anoying, especialy when I can hear it while wearing headphones. Another problem Is that the cooler is difficult to install! I had allot of trouble tightening the skews to hold the cooler down.

Other Thoughts: If you want a quiet cooler, go with a Noctua NH-U9B. I was very disappointed with the noise, I wish I would have known about this problem before I ordered it.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works... but its loud.

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

Pros: It keeps my cpu under 40C when playing games, the software is very easy to use and useful. The led is cool. The fans are very quiet.

Cons: Although the fan is very quiet, after about 1 minuet the pump becomes so loud that I can hear it when listening to loud music, I don't know whether this is a problem with just mine or all of the coolers. If its a common problem, I would recommend getting a different AIO cooler

4 out of 5 eggsCompromises

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

Pros: Kuhls pretty well, Looks very unique, LED light on waterblock can be changed to any color you want, very flexible hoses, different options for direction of waterblock on the CPU.

Cons: more noisy that anticipated, LED light on waterblock doesn't turn custom color until Windows has booted up, installation was quite the pain but that is only done once so it isn't a big deal.

Other Thoughts: This cooler looks great, and has some pretty neat features that set it apart from your average AIO water cooler. It also does a great job at keeping my FX-9370 in check. The only problem is the fan/pump noise. It seems to turn the speeds up pretty quickly, like just surfing the web will be cause for excessive compensation of the fans. You can set the speed through the included software but even with the slider turned all the way down for fanspeed, it insists on keeping the fans between 1000-1300rpm (which is very audible). Even as I write this, the slider is set to 600rpm but the fans are at 1100rpm. There's no reason for them to be that fast right now. If only there was a way to change the threshold of when the unit starts turning the fans up, like with speedfan, then I would definitely give this 5 stars. So you get great performance at the price of loud operating volume.

But the unique design makes it stand out from the pack. It looks fantastic through the window of my case, and since everything is sideways (Silverstone Raven RV05 case), it really stands out. It's really nice to be able to change the color on the waterblock to match the red lights in the case. Or you can set it to change color (from light blue to red) depending on the coolant temperature, which is pretty cool.

All in all, I am very satisfied with the performance but I have hopes that Antec will improve the software to allow for more customization of temperature thresholds.

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.
