First up is the latest version (v4) of the Antec Kuhler 620 and it arrives in a box very similar to past editions. Inside we find a selection of product documentation and each of the main components seperated into sections within a cardboard tray. Most are also wrapped in plastic for added protection. As well as a 12cm (1500-2000rpm, 81.3CFM) fan we get all the items required to install the cooler on Intel 2011/1155/1156 and 775 systems as well as AMD AM3/2/FM1 and FM2 sockets.
Antec use a compact pump on this model with copper cold plate that has thermal paste pre-applied. Running from it we have rubber tubing (330mm) and the unit is pre-filled with anti-corrosive liquid.
For the radiator we have a 151x120x27mm model and the entire cooler weighs 0.7KG and has a 3-year warranty (Pump rated for 50,000hours operation).
Antec Kuhler 620 Installation
Installation of the V4 version of this cooler is very simple (as was the previous edition). We attach the backplate with adhesive strips, passing screw holes through the motherboard. Next we assemble the cooler bracket which holds the pump in place. And then mount it, very loosely on the motherboard. We then place the pump on the CPU (remember paste is pre-applied) and hold it down by tightening the four screws.
We can attach the fan and radiator to the back (or top) of our case in a 12cm fan location and then we simply plug in the fan to the pump and the pump (3pin connector) to our CPU fan header on the motherboard.
