2 out of 5 eggs Overrated - Returning to Air Cooling 11/17/2013

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros:

* The kit is all-inclusive for water cooling your CPU

* Setup is easy to install

* The mounting kit supports a good variety of chipsets

* Temperatures were 3C better than regular air cooling on a 2500K processor in my rig (3C more after adding another fan for push/pull config)

* The system looks good and you can boast about water cooling your computer to aspiring nerds

Cons:

* My H60 totally failed after 2 years and 2 months

* The fan is mediocre at best and system requires another to perform at it's best (which increases the cost further)

* The mounting bracket is not the best quality, and can be easily stripped

* The performance is limited to your ambient room temperature, meaning regular fans can compete very closely

*The cost is over double that of outstanding performing fans

* It contains liquid... in a PC that potentially costs thousands of dollars = recipe for disaster and a hassle if you have to move a lot

Other Thoughts:

I bought this cooler in July of 2011 and waited until now to review it. The long-term value of this is poor compared to other air cooling options. My unit failed after 2 years, but the points in this review remain valid regardless of that failure.

For overclockers who *must* reduce CPUs an extra few Celsius in temperature: this might be an "okay" option if you're lazy... but you should just create your own watercooling rig if you fall in this category

For everyone else: do not spend 2-3x more on this than air cooling. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 can be had for $24 at the time of this posting and is nearly the same in performance without the hassle/worry of watercooling.
