Corsair Hydro H55 & H60 CPU Liquid Coolers Review

Much like the H55, the H60 comes supplied inside a strong box and is well packed with the use of environmentally friendly cardboard packaging material. Every single part is wrapped inside a plastic bag.

Although the H60 may be installed on every CPU socket the H55 can as well, which is pretty much every CPU socket currently available to home users, the number of mounting hardware is notably lower. That is because the H60 is using a more sophisticated mounting system, which also allows for quicker and somewhat easier installation.

The cooling fan is another major difference of the H60 over the H55. With the H60 Corsair provides a 120mm fluid bearing fan with a maximum speed of 2000RPM. The extended blades of the fan are supposed to increase its performance, especially at lower speeds.

Although the base concept of the H60 is similar to that of the H55, a quick look indicates that there are major differences between the two systems. The H60 is making use of rubber tubes as well; however, the diameter of the tubing is significantly wider than that of the H55. Despite the increased width however, the rubber tubing is good and will not kink when taking turns; it does place a lot of force on the block though during installation if bent too much, which can be a little annoying.
