Antec now offers in addition to cases and power supplies to a whole series CPU coolers and fans with H2O 620 and H2O 920, meanwhile, are also two compact chillers in the portfolio of the manufacturer. But what do the compact cooler compared to the competition find this out, we want to shed light on the first train and the H2O 620 cooler next we will soon illuminate even the H2O 920 cooler in an additional test in more detail.
The H2O 620 CPU cooler from Antec is the first work in the field of liquid cooling systems as previously Corsair, Antec also relies on the cooperation with the firm Asetek, so it is hardly surprising that some parallels to the competition are to be found. But Antec has revised some of the details and, in doing with various changes for example, the tubes are much more flexible and assembly has been revised as our test sample against our air and water coolers from Compact proposes different performance classes.
Visually similar to the model of Antec typical representatives of the compact water cooler but even on the hoses can be seen that a few changes here have received feed these are not fluted but smooth and extremely flexible Cooler and pump unit are provided with various bolt which is strongly reminiscent of H70 and H40 from Corsair. Otherwise there is not much new optically of course, the model from Antec is again completely maintenance free the more of us have complained about fan cable is short, unfortunately, here again there the black-painted radiator in slim design, the dimensions 120 x 151 x 27 mm.
Thus it is hardly different from its predecessors the fin spacing of the radiator has been revised, these will include a better heat dissipation can be ensured, in order to increase the cooling capacity can be optionally mounted another fan, quality makes the compact water cooler a good impression in particular, the coating layer acts much more robust than the competition.
