Antec Announces Newest Next-Generation CPU Cooler: KÜHLER H2O 620

Antec’s KÜHLER H2O 620 uses Asetek technology, sets latest standard
in high-performance and quiet CPU cooling

Fremont, CAJanuary 20, 2011 – In its 25th anniversary year, Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced the Antec KÜHLER H2O 620 next-generation high-performance CPU cooler.

Working in tandem with Asetek (www.asetek.com,) the industry-leading supplier of OEM liquid cooling systems for computers, Antec has developed an easy-to-install liquid CPU cooling solution that outperforms stock CPU coolers up to 20 percent under full load. The Antec KÜHLER H2O 620 is crafted to bring sealed liquid CPU cooling to mainstream PC hardware and gaming enthusiasts world-wide – all delivering a Quiet Computing™ experience that requires zero maintenance, and that’s built to OEM standards for reliability.  

The KÜHLER H2O 620 features Asetek’s low-profile pump for exceptional liquid circulation while preserving internal airflow, and easy-bend tubes for maximum flexibility in radiator positioning. Additionally, the KÜHLER H2O 620 utilizes liquid temperature controlled fans to deliver Antec’s renowned Quiet Computing™ technology for quiet, efficient performance and uses the latest generation copper cold plate for optimal conduction.

“With CPU cooling, today’s users care primarily about four things: performance, low noise, reliability and ease-of-setup – all offered at the right price,” said Scott Richards, senior vice president at Antec. “The new KÜHLER H2O 620 switches it up and packs a remarkable amount of cooling in a compact solution, and one that delivers performance greater than many of the tall dual-fan CPU coolers that barely fit into a system.”

“Combining high performance and quiet computing has never been easier than with the KÜHLER H2O 620 cooler’s liquid temperature fan control,” said Steve Branton, director of marketing at Asetek. “Simply plug the fan into the pump and the cooler provides great performance when you need it and stays whisper quiet when you don’t.” 

The KÜHLER H2O 620 high-performance CPU cooler is backed by Antec’s Quality 3-year (AQ3) limited warranty on parts and labor and is available at the end of January for an estimated price of $69.95 through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors.

I still remember when liquid cooler was expensive... For that price i would be buying one of those baby for my HTPC

Looks just like my Asetek LCLC and my Corsair H50 too!

Just,....Like,....Them!

It is a good price for a good cooling solution though.

Ah, i was looking at the Corsair H50, Very similar looking. and I like these liquid cooling packs. Less hassel for the amateur enthusiast on a budget!

I was thinking about getting an H70, but I don't know. I currently use a Megahalems Rev B with two cooler master ultra 120mm fans. From what I am seeing from a stock unit (mine) Vs. the H70 there is little difference really. I may get a 2 degree change or I may get nothing on the H70, so maybe I will wait to see if we get some reviews on one of these. Or if I really wanna go liquid do the real deal full up liquid cooling. I may also have something coming which would warrant it as well, but that is to be seen for now.

I was thinking about getting an H70, but I don't know.

I didn't get my second water CPU cooler for a long time after I had won the PC from HotHardware. It had the Asetek LCLC on it when I got it and it did a good job of keeping the i7-870 cool. On the other PC I had a huge Orange Zalman cooler and it too was fine. So I didn't really NEED to get water cooling for the second PC. In early November, I did a little work for someone and they wanted to pay me, but on a whim, I asked them to order me an H50 from Corsair instead. They did, and when I got it, I left it on the shelf until I built the latest i7-870 system. The Zalman is now on the shelf in case I ever need it.

If your Megahalems cooler cools your CPU sufficiently, then there's probably no reason to replace it.

Yeah; the Megahalems still does a good job. I probably need to reapply thermal compound before to much longer as it has been roughly a year now. As far as coolers on the shelf I have quite a few heat sink's laying around myself, lol. I was just thinking one of these units would do something more than a degree or two. While we as of yet anyway do not have a review on these specific units, the H50 and H70 review's are all over the net. If it was 4-5 degree's even 3+ I could see it but 1.5-2 degrees I can probably get new fans to do that.

I've never personally toyed with water cooling yet. My CPU being an AMD x2 5000, my cooler master hyper 212 plus, which i purchased about 3 months ago does a superb job. I had replaced the stock fan (haha, i know, after like 5 years of use). Stock cooler kept it at around ~32 - 35. Hyper plus keeps it at around ~19 - 24 depending on the load.

I think the highest i've ever gone, was when i was rendering a video a couple of weeks ago, it touched almost 38-39 degrees Celsius

Looks like a great little unit for a self contained CPU Water Cooling Kit! 

I would love to get one and see how it performs maybe even write a short review? 

I currently run a Corsair H50 with twin SCYTHE ULTRAKAZE 2000 RPM Fans in a push/pull setup for my i7 920 running @ 4.0 24/7. 

I use to use the Coolit Domino ALC by COOLIT Sytems.  It was a very good cooler also.
