Antec KUHLER H2O 920-E Water Cooler Coming Soon

Postby Apoptosis » Tue Apr 24, 2012 9:43 am

It looks like Antec will be releasing a new CPU cooler soon. It will be called the KUHLER H2O 920-E and it has a much thicker radiator on it!

Check it out below.

Looks the same size to me... hope they managed to put some quieter fans on that. Hands down loudest cooler (due to the fans on "extreme" setting) I have ever tested.

You are right... I looked around the web and found it's the same radiator, but it has a new pump for higher pressure and stronger fans.

A variation of the H20 920, the 920e features stronger fans to ventilate the radiator in push-pull configuration, and higher coolant pressure, to keep up with the high thermal output of socket LGA2011 processors, which it supports out of the box. So the "e" in its model name really just denotes "enhanced [performance]."

The dimensions of the cooler are the same as the H20 920, with 70 x 70 x 25 mm (WxDxH) block, featuring a polished copper base; 120 x 49 x 151 mm radiator (without fans), and 120 x 120 x 25 mm fans (x2). The fans have more aggressive automatic speed profiles, they can spin at speeds as high as 2400 RPM pushing 110 CFM of air, each. The cooler includes sensors, which can be read by an included software, and speeds can be controlled. The retention kit includes support for all modern Intel and AMD sockets, including LGA2011, LGA1155, AM3+, and FM1.

The cooler than came with the build I won here is a bit underwhelming. I feel like a decent air cooler could man handle the thing. The other head scratcher was the fact they only had the radiator hooked up to one 600 RPM Lian Li fan. I have since put on a couple 2000 RPM fans I keep at 1400 RPM with my fan controller. Still isn't all that great. If I'm loading all 4 cores with 4 HT cores loaded too I'm sitting in the mid 80s.
