Antec Kühler H20 620 Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Final Thoughts

When it comes to liquid cooling systems many people are put off because it seems like an intimidating process, but with the Kühler H2O 620 things almost couldn't be easier.  Its not any more difficult to install than any comparable air cooler, but rather easier in some ways since it keeps the packed CPU socket area clear, which is probably the greatest benefit to an AIO water cooling solution.  You won't have any trouble installing any kit of RAM you choose and accessing power and fan headers along the upper edge of the board won't be a problem, which of course can't be said about many comparable air coolers.  The other great thing about the AIO water cooling is that the case exhaust is handled by the same fans, and the fans themselves generally don't have to work as hard, which leads to quieter operation.


At a price of about $60, the Kuhler 620 is an all-in-one watercooling solution that is similarly-priced to many mid-range and high-end air coolers. So what you end up with is the benefits of an AIO water cooler, performance not far off the larger, more expensive water or air coolers, and a price that should be within the budgets of casual builders and enthusiasts alike.  This cooler would be perfect for HTPC builds in smaller cases, as well as a relatively high-end desktop rig for someone looking to give this whole "liquid cooling thing" a go, or if you just want more open space in your case and reduce the fan noise in the room.
