Introduction

Corsair Hydro Series H60 120mm Liquid CPU cooler

In this review we go back to basics with a 120mm LCS, we check out the new and updated (2018) model H60 - a single fan 120mm AIO Liquid cooler series. No extravagant software control, just a simple enough cooler with nice capacity, low acoustics and more than adequate cooling capacity. 

These days you can pick a hundred different heatpipe based coolers, where many are shaped, formed and priced the same. The better heatpipebased coolers are good though. Next in line are LCS systems (liquid cooling), the entry-level products are affordable, easy to install pre-fab liquid cooling kits. We've seen and tested many of them as Corsair, Asetek, CoolIT, NZXT, Cooler Master and so on, all have interesting kits. The bigger problem is cooling performance. The gear behind these kits are good yet the performance is often battling a small included 120mm radiator with thin tubing and lacking coolant levels due to missing reservoirs. To compensate FAN RPM goes up making a good looking product noisy again. With that in mind, Corsair started to develop a new H series (for Hydro) coolers. The product we test in specific is the Corsair 2018  model H60. It is an updated design based on the previous model, yet with a new cooling block and regulated control for pump and fans. The Hydro Series H60 is an all-in-one liquid CPU cooler with a 120mm radiator built for low-noise liquid CPU cooling and bold styling with a white LED-lit pump head.

So without further ado, let's have a peek at the new CPU cooler with a 120mm radiator built for low-noise liquid CPU cooling, nice looks with a white LED-lit pump head, head onwards into the review.
