Antec Announces Newest Next-Generation CPU Cooler: KÜHLER H2O 620

In its 25th anniversary year, Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced the Antec KÜHLER H2O 620 next-generation high-performance CPU cooler. Working in tandem with Asetek, the industry-leading supplier of OEM liquid cooling systems for computers, Antec has developed an easy-to-install liquid CPU cooling solution that outperforms stock CPU coolers up to 20 percent under full load. The Antec KÜHLER H2O 620 is crafted to bring sealed liquid CPU cooling to mainstream PC hardware and gaming enthusiasts world-wide – all delivering a Quiet Computing experience that requires zero maintenance, and that’s built to OEM standards for reliability.

The KÜHLER H2O 620 features Asetek’s low-profile pump for exceptional liquid circulation while preserving internal airflow, and easy-bend tubes for maximum flexibility in radiator positioning. Additionally, the KÜHLER H2O 620 utilizes liquid temperature controlled fans to deliver Antec’s renowned Quiet Computing technology for quiet, efficient performance and uses the latest generation copper cold plate for optimal conduction.

“With CPU cooling, today’s users care primarily about four things: performance, low noise, reliability and ease-of-setup – all offered at the right price,” said Scott Richards, senior vice president at Antec. “The new KÜHLER H2O 620 switches it up and packs a remarkable amount of cooling in a compact solution, and one that delivers performance greater than many of the tall dual-fan CPU coolers that barely fit into a system.”
“Combining high performance and quiet computing has never been easier than with the KÜHLER H2O 620 cooler’s liquid temperature fan control,” said Steve Branton, director of marketing at Asetek. “Simply plug the fan into the pump and the cooler provides great performance when you need it and stays whisper quiet when you don’t.”

The KÜHLER H2O 620 high-performance CPU cooler is backed by Antec’s Quality 3-year (AQ3) limited warranty on parts and labor and is available for an estimated price of 68 Euros through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors.

I really want to see how this performs, it looks like it uses the same radiator as the H50 but the pump and block of the H70 all from asetek so it should show if the base/pump make a difference alone or if it was the radiator that made the difference.

Although the tubing seams seams to be thicker, i have no idea if the internal diameter is different though.

Any chance of a TPU review?

Looks to be priced against the much prettier H60.

I forgot about the H60, i hope at some point a site will compare the H50, H60, H70, KÜHLER H2O 620 and CoolIT Vantage A.L.C. it would make for a great round up of all these similar sealed loops.

Ya agree, The temps are pritty close but Asetek was the first and the only one that comes with a 240 rad option. I have a h50 and it works very well, But as thay say wetter is better so by summer looking to upgrade to a XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Kit and the h50 goes to my son to bring him off air.

I'd like to see a round up of all current sealed-unit watercoolers from AVC, AseTek, NZXT, Domino & Corsair compared to XSPC Rasa, 750lph, RS240.

@Dave63: I use the XSPC kit routinely in builds. Highly recommended.

The fan speed is 1450-2000 so its noisy and i'll avoid it like the plague. Only the best 1200 rpm fans are virtually silent, once you get to 1400 is clearly audible and 2000 is just ridiculous. Same deal with the H70.

You could put a 1200 rpm fan on this but then you gotta add 10 degrees for the temps. A high end heatsink gives you better performance.

I love my H50 but i really want to know what effect the H70's block/pump would have on temps when using the same rad as the H50.

Im with everyone else. I want to see comparisons between the H50/60/70 and this Antec 620. My new system is going to contain one of these so long as the fan noise isnt horrible.

The fans you can and should always swap out on these... the 1400rpm Scythe Kama Flow 2's are nothing short of divine.

these are better fans for watercooling

Better yet, could i just continue to use the current fans that I have in my case now? I have the Antec 1200 full tower case. Would just be easier since the fans are connected to a controller built into the case.
