Asetek Inc., the world’s leading supplier of liquid cooling technology for computers, today announced two new pump technologies that deliver optimized cooling and quieter computing. The new pumps use Liquid Temperature Fan Control technology to automatically adjust fan speeds at the radiator. This technology boosts cooling for significant CPU and GPU overclocking and keeps the computer quiet during less demanding tasks. The Antec KÜHLER H2O 620 liquid CPU cooler is the first product to feature Liquid Temperature Fan Control technology.

I disagree... (with calling it shit) My H50 with push pull setup is comparable to good aircooling if not better.. Cooling is as good and i can use all of my ram slots. It also doesn't weight as much.. less pressure on my motherboard. :D

This would be nice... if i didn't just leave everything maxed all the time :laugh:

Now all they need is to put a Corsair sticker on them like the h50 and h70 and we have a best-seller.

Id rather have them redirect the budget to equip a more stronger pump and fatter tubes

I tested out an H70 for a few months, and saw it was no better than my previous ifx-14 1:1 fans. Add the factor of the chance that the pump may die out anytime, these things are just not worth it temperature and price wise.

The comments i have seen on multiple boards talking about the pump failing being a risk i say that's nothing special against these types of coolers as that risk comes with every kind of water based cooler yet many people use water cooling quite happily.

I understand it may be seen that these types of cooler have lower quality pumps than ones in custom loops but so far my H50's pump has been running a little over 10,000 hours solid an i would hope that is a sign the pump is of an acceptable quality.... unless it craps out right after i post this :laugh:

Now all they need is to put a Corsair sticker on them like the h50 and h70 and we have a best-seller.
:laugh: come on its all asetek, the corsair branded ones are so easy to find but the asetek own brand ones are way harder, if asetek put the effort into marketing and availability that corsair has then asetek branded ones would be best sellers them self :p

Yes i know you are saying people buy things for the corsair name but i would hope that the majority of people here actually read in to the corsair products they buy such as who makes the product that corsair has either tweaked the spec or simply slapped it's name on.

Go find me a cooler that will cool as good as the h70 and fits a mini itx form factor. These have there place they might have weak pumps they may not be good as the best air coolers but they are smaller and they do let you clear normal sized ram on all boards. Not to mention I stuffed one into a silverstone sg05 easile with no mods something that cannot be done with any cooler with comparable performance.

Cuplex Kryos paired with an Aquaduct 240.... Pricewise another range but definitly better....


From my point of view this things are rubbish....

They didnt perform aswell as some air coolers, yeah they are cheap but no way to cool a graphics card and so on.




If you have an Htpc wich needs this cooling then you did something wrong.... Really wrong....

Read the specs on it I stuffed a big zalman on the gtx470 as well. The cpu was chugging along at 4.6ghz 24/7

:laugh: I think people here mainly make HTPC's that are over powered or as mini gaming machines so need the kind of cooling that is hard to fit in a small space.

I want a better CPU cooler for my HTPC but my choices are so limited due to space, a 120mm sealed loop would fit perfectly and beat every other cooler that would fit.

I only see information on using the KÜHLER H2O 620 with it, in the release it says that cooler is the first with "Liquid Temperature Fan Control technology" and i assumed that was needed for it to work so the KÜHLER H2O 620 could possibly be the only thing it works with right now.

At least some features may be compatible with older coolers or all... idk I'm tired :laugh:

Its best in that scenario in which space is premium yes, but still, Id think it would be better if theyd charge the customer for a stronger pump, and at least 7/16" id, instead of relocating budget for a software and some on board sensor.. and change their rads to copper / brass instead of aluminum while at it.

I agree, the true benefit of water cooling is that you can 'move' the hot air 100% out of the case via the radiator.
As Asetek states, the fans on the H50 and the H70 have had problems being controlled by the motherboard temperature sensor (=running max all the time), hence Asetek have developed an internal system that regulates itself: KÜHLER H2O 620 is the first example of this.

See eg this review: http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/article/2011/03/10/antec_khler_h2o_620_cpu_water_cooler_review/ :toast:
