All-in-one liquid cooling solutions are a great way to improve the cooling abilities past that of purely air-based CPU coolers and Antec just released two new of such models. The two new Antec all-in-one CPU coolers are the Kühler H2O H600 PRO and Kühler H2O H1200 PRO. These new Antec Kühler models should provide you with the best possible cooling abilities thanks to the use of quality components such as an extra-large copper base plate, the high-performance radiator, and the silent yet powerful fans included.
The Antec Kühler H600 and H1200 are close to identical with only the radiator length and tubing length to differentiate them. The H600 is a 120mm sized model with a tube length of 315mm while the Kühler H1200 is a 240mm sized model with a tube length of 348mm. Both Kühler models have a radiator thickness of 27mm.
Both the Kühler H600 PRO and H1200 PRO are equipped with the same large copper base plate that should transfer heat effectively from any AMD or Intel processor as the coolers are compatible with pretty much any socket. You can mount it on Intel LGA 775, 115x, 1366, and 2011 as well as AMD AM2 and all newer up to the current ones.
The radiator on the Kühler H600 PRO measures 155 x 120 and the H1200 measures 275 x 120mm, which is the room you’ll need to mount these. The radiators are constructed with a 0.2mm fin interval and together with the large base plate lay the foundation for the cooling abilities.
While you can mount any standard 120mm fans on these radiators, there already are some good ones included. Antec bundled their blue LED fans with the Kühler H600 and Kühler H1200 which spin with a speed of 600 to 2400 RPM and create a noise level of 16 to 25 dBa.
The enclosed pump impeller is said to be near completely silent while delivering a pressure of 2.3 meters of water. The pump achieves this pressure thanks to the higher rotational speed of the winding type three-phase motor. A fan header can’t deliver enough power to these coolers, so that is delivered via an SATA power connector instead.
The Kühler H2O H600 PRO comes with an MSRP of £39.99 while the H1200 costs a little more with its MSRP set to £59.99. Those are still very reasonable prices and I think these units should sell well. Antec did not reveal when then the new units will be available at this time.
We have just received our review samples here at the eTeknix office, so we’ll have the full reviews ready for you in a couple of days. Stay tuned and see how great these new Antec Kühler H20 can perform.
