Antec Kuhler H2O 620 and 920

Antec contain two products and that are the Kuhler H2O 920 and Kuhler H2O 620. Each of that is founded on a Third generation Asetek all-in-one design which takes hardly any exclusive modification as compared to the earlier generations. Both of them contains the similar low profile incorporated pump and obstruct system and contain a 120mm radiator (heat exchanger), But in case of the Kuhler 920, it has twice the thickness for the rad as compared 620 and have a push-pull airflow fan configuration.

Re: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 and 920

It is anchored in the similar Asetek LCLC unit utilized by Corsair. This is very good as corsair drops this model and Antec is there to hold it. I think that this is possibly going to beat the H50/H70 faintly in terms of the temps otherwise noise. Anyone worried regarding the tubes that don't contain the Corsair anti-bend design? I speculate what enhancement they've completed though. I like how they included LEDs as well. This seems that the Corsair will lastly have little opposition. The AIO loop is also look very recognizable.

This is really going to be the half of the degree as compared to the H-50. It completely depends that if tubing has some influence and the instructions incorporated. Corsair suggests making use of the intake. I am worried that if there is something that might cut the tube simply. One thing is for certain as of its picture that I seen on internet for this is that absolutely an Antec-grade wire management work.

Corsair is still having the Asetek like an OEM, they just included the CoolIT as an additional intended for these kind of coolers. There is no doubt that these are H50/70s through LEDs as well as rubber tubing. If there is some development at all if you make use of the similar fans intended for either cooler. The fans comprises with this will conclude the beyond the box performance.

Re: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 and 920

I hate that it is based on the same 'Asetek all-in-one' design. After trying the ECO CoolIT ALC, I prefer that normal technique of mounting the block as against that 'ring locking' technique. That Corsair, anti bending tubing is essentially placing unwanted stress for the pump. The exterior ridges that you see on the tubing are hollow on the inside. It is having the essential plumbing and large amount of resistance in the flow. I am not going to buy one of these until they have a version of 240 mm. I'm disappointed with this for the fact that it was not Antec make a version that fits in the Antec 1200 when the two 120mm fans are. You can see in the picture, have to be configured in a Antec 1200.

Re: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 and 920

I would do the same. At the same time, it seems it would be easier to cut myself and add a 240 mm rad. I have never looked at it with my H50 for pipe coating and not knowing how much of a difference it would make. Peltier do not know how rad would handle the different sizes. Actually I've always wanted and tubing to relocate the rad to the back or front of my case

Re: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 and 920

I think this is a good idea competition in this space is just healthy for people who are unwilling / a little afraid to make a water cooling circuit properly. Not only do manufacturers try to produce a product that works better than others, but at a lower price. I'm not sure how much confidence rubber loops. It seems as if they were more prone to failure, but I am a n00b loop, so it may be off base there (softer, more flexible, it is not the same as stronger and more resistant to me.
