The Corsair H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

The H60 arrives with us in a stylish retail box. There is plenty of product information on the outside and inside we find the cooler protected by foam, cardboard and a plastic bag. The bundled components are encased in polystyrene bag with others in a small re-sealable bag. Included with the H60 is a single backplate for installation on Intel 1366/1156/1155 systems and a set of brackets for AMD AM2/3 users. To migrate the H60, which comes ready for Intel systems, to AMD we simply remove 4 screws on the factory installed arms and replace them with the AM2/3 equivalent. Also provided with the H60 is an easy to follow instruction booklet and four screws to install the cooler in our case.

As with Corsair and CoolIT’s previous coolers the H60 consists of two main components, the radiator block and a pump; these are joined together by two flexible FEP tubes with 6mm inner and 8mm outer diameter. These tubes carry the liquid coolant which has anti-corrosion/fungal properties through the system.

For the CPU block Corsair use a micro channel cooling block which sits below the low profile pump. The design incorporates a split flow manifold which allows the coolant to pass over the centre of the CPU before exiting at the edges to be cooled by the radiator. Also part of the plate is a micro channel fin design that increases the surface area of the CPU block, maximising cooling potential.

Also shown above is the H60 (middle) compared to the H70 and CoolIT Vantage pumps.

Corsair use a 120mm x152mm x27mm fully aluminium radiator on the H60 and provided with this is a 1700RPM, 12x12x2.5cm fan. This fan is Corsair branded and has an airflow rating of 74.4CFM, static pressure of 3.2mm and noise reading of 30.2dBA.
