Nice Choice 03/29/2013
The "generation 2" H60 looks great and appears to be solid. Install was easy. Running Prime 95 with 8 virtual cores on my 3770k (mildly overclocked to 4.1Gh) had all cores running around 58C.
Could have been a bit clearer in the manual about the electrical connectors. I called Corsair and clarified that the 4-pin radiator fan connector can be allowed to be speed controlled by the bios, but the 3-pin pump connector should NOT be allowed to vary the pump speed which should be on full at all times since below a certain voltage the pump can stop altogether.
The gen 2 model appears to have a simplified mounting bracket, quieter higher torque fan and larger hoses. While my ASRock z77 motherboard has both 4 & 3 pin CPU fan headers, I had to use a separate 3-pin chassis fan header to prevent the pump from throttling down along with the radiator fan. Also, I had to change the CPU fan setting from full to variable in the BIOS. At full the radiator fan was loud but when allowed to modulate it was very quiet. Interestingly the bios fan controller reported the pump rpm at 4,600 rpm. Hope it lasts!
Also, because of the thicker and less flexible hoses I mounted the pump on the CPU rotated counterclockwise 90 degrees (Corsair logo goes down to up) to take the torque strain off the CPU pump mount caused by the thicker hoses. Works like a charm. Looks Great. Works Great (so far). And Corsair tech support was right there when I called.
