      The Corsair H60, a 120mm all-in-one cooler, is a good product so long as you realize what it is. A 120mm cooler will not tend to run your CPU any cooler than a mid-range aftermarket aircooler. It is only a couple degrees cooler than the included cooler, in some cases (Looking at you, Wraith Spire, for being a good included cooling solution). What a 120mm cooler will do is allow you to get the same cooling performance of a large aftermarket cooling tower in a much smaller package. While many cases, including small form factor mATX and mITX cases, support thin 240mm radiators, most people do not desire (or need) a $120+ cooling solution in those form factors. The H60 provides a middle ground between more expensive solutions, and cheaper but MUCH larger solutions, and it fulfills this role admirably. The pump is small, and the hoses do not interfere with RAM. The included brackets cover the gamut of modern (and two-ish generations back) mainstream processor sockets, so you are highly likely to be able to use it out of the box no matter if you are team blue or team red. The included AM3/+ bracket even works on AM4 sockets, thanks to AMD's choice to use the same hook-mount specifications as AM3. How much of a pain that particular mounting system is, that's something else. The pre-applied thermal paste is quality, and saves some effort. Really, even if you purchase more expensive pastes to replace it with, you MIGHT shave a single degree off your temperatures. The hoses on this particular model are a matte rubber. Nothing fancy, but robust and flexible. The radiator itself is a thin radiator, which provides a large amount of clearance even when coupled with a standard fan, without needing to purchase a more expensive (and yet lower-performing) thin-line fan. The thinner radiator does not significantly impact its performance, as the actual overall size is much, much more important than thickness (120 vs 240 vs 280 etc) Overall, I would recommend this cooler to someone who really only needs a $40ish aftermarket air solution, but either wants a clean look, or has no way to fit that absolutely HUGE heatsink.

      I installed this in a new computer that I built. The computer has an AMD Ryzen 7 1700X processor mounted to an ASRock X370 Taichi motherboard. I pre-planned the installation, but that changed once I put the motherboard into the case (Fractal Design Arc Midi 2). The case is fairly deep, and my plan to mount the radiator and fan to the front of the case had to be scuttled because the coolant tubes wouldn't reach the CPU. I ended up mounting the radiator and fan to the top of the case, which has cooling vents. The installation was very simple, and attaching it to the AM4 bracket required no modifications or extra parts. Everything needed is in the box. There is a video on Corsair's that helps explain the installation process. The instruction booklet is very well written with good illustrations. Make sure that you read it. I think the total installation time was about 15 minutes, and probably 10 minutes was deciding how to mount the radiator and fan and then forgetting that the fan needed to be ABOVE the radiator and not below it. My error. Operationally, this runs very quietly. My CPU temps seem to hover in the 30-35ºC range. The coolant tubes are very stiff. They aren't that much different from automotive coolant tubes. The H60 appears to be well made and nicely finished. I'm very pleased with this unit. I have no problem recommending it.

      Standoff's broke with just finger tightening. I took the whole thing off because I thought that the standoff's were made of plastic or balsa wood. I messaged Corsair customer support and created a ticket, after 2 day's I got a response to purchase a new mounting kit for $16.00 + shipping. I messaged back to see if there was a different option because all I needed was one standoff screw and two day's later another response saying the same, pay $16.00 + shipping. All for just one screw and 4-5 day's of wasted time. This was my first ever build, I liked the good reviews of corsair products and actually purchased quite a few things from them for this first build. Needless to say I'll be sending everything back that I can and going with another company. And just to be clear this is just from a customer service standpoint, the products (hopefully most of them) are of good quality but the support behind those products leaves much to be desired.

      I was using a CoolerMaster EVO 212 for an AMD FX-8350 and it keeps it running cool while gaming and I built a new system for video rendering and gaming and thought the EVO 212 would do just as good. Instead overclocked my new Ryzen 1600 to 3.85 with the EVO and got temps around 82 C (hot and the cpu's were throttling). So I put the Corsair H60 to try it out and now at full load rendering or gaming for hours I'm staying at 53 C (almost a 30 C difference). I could probably go for 4 Ghz on the Ryzen but not sure if my memory could handle it. I'm getting rid of the EVO for the FX-8350 and purchasing the Corsair H60 for it. It's small and gets the job done. No need for the 240 or 360 coolers as I'm not overclocking the cpus that far out. Here's my load out AMD Ryzen 1600 (3.2 ghz stock, boosted to 3.85) 16 GB ADATA 3000 (boosted to 3033) ASROCK AB350 fatal1ty motherboard EVGA 600 PSU 2 - XFX 470 GPU's 2 - 3TB Toshiba P300 HDD (Mirror) CoolerMaster 5 lite case

      Fantastic Liquid Cooler for Ryzen CPU/APUs.

      Keeps my AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Cool at during any Intensive Workload, whether it's Gaming, Streaming, Multitasking, Etc. CPU is Overclocked to 3.9 GHz and Never exceeds 65'C Under Any Workload, except during stress testing, Like AIDA 64 or Doing Heavy Video Rendering Through Davinci Resolve or Handbrake. Cannot Recommend this Cooler Enough for someone who wants a Quiet, Operational Cooler without a lot of fuss. However, I will recommend getting Different Fans to pair up with this Liquid Cooler. the Stock Fan with the H60 is Okay, but you only get one. I have a Push-Pull Configuration with Two Corsair ML120's, and they do a Phenomenal Job.

      I installed one of these in my Alienware Aurora R6 to replace the stock air cooling on the i7-7700 (non-K) after being told by Dell that I could not order their water cooling kit. My CPU temp does not go above 56C under any conditions I've seen, even with ambient in the room has gotten up to 25-26C. The biggest advantage has been the lack of noise from the (junk) Intel stock cooler. I did have to bend the mounting bracket arms up a little to apply more pressure to the CPU heat spreader even though the specs claimed compatibility, but that's a minor gripe.

      For a 120mm liquid cooler its pretty decent

      After running a few stress tests, its kept my cpu at around 65C, and around 72 at max. Pretty decent temps but good lord the fan it comes with is annoying and loud. Personally, i think its worth getting a good air cooler for the same price, if you can get this on sale for cheap then its worth it, but i cant recommend this version of the h60, not sure how much better the second version is, dont get me wrong, this is good for what it is. But, with the stock fan and price point i think its worth looking into something else.

      I have an i7-8700 alienware, and when I bought this computer I though that I didn't need the water cooling, temperatures where close to T case 100 degrees, fans where at full speed, noise and imagine the heat... BTW, I replace the stock fan and heat sink with this corsair hydro because of the tight space in my Aurora R7, the results 25 degrees Cooler, now it tops under load up to 75 degrees, best investment I have done to keep my CPU healthy. Well Recommended and will be installing this in my second workstation
