Antec Kuhler H20 620

I am getting an Antec Kuhler 620.
I will be overclocking my i7 2600k.
Sadly, it will be on a P67 chipset motherboard, ASUS Sabertooth P67.
So does anyone else use this?
Anything I should know before using this?

  1. What's wrong with the p67 chipset? From what I have read, it is a little better than the corsair h70. With aftermarket cooling make sure you have decent airflow in the case to cool both the cpu heatsink and motherboard. A lot of people worry about cpu temps and completely ignore the mother board and everything else.
  2. The chipsets on the mobo can get warm but hardly anything to worry about since they can usually withstand a lot higher temps than the CPU can as well as not producing as much.And the Sabertooth has a overall high quality heatsinks and componet.

    Here's a review and comparison of the 620

    http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/antec_kuhler_h20_620_review/4.htm

    As you can see it performs nearly the same as the H70 which makes the 620's price point definitly justifible.
  3. Over 4.0-4.25ghz, you are going to need a real watercooling loop for an OC'd i7 2600k.
  4. Yah but that Benchmark was with a 130watt first gen i7.Wouldn't you see better results with a 95watt second gen i7?

    Well, people say that OCing a CPU on P67 isn't as good.
  6. I don't agree with the people, lol. The Z68 just adds more function to the table. I haven't heard or read anywhere that says the p67 is inferior in overclocking to the Z68 chipset.
  7. As long as it has strong quality units it should be just as good as an O.C.er.Once you hit a certain level of mobo it just matters on the CPU.
  8. P67 is a very good, mainstream chipset.
  9. Well I right now, my CPU idles around 20 degrees centigrade on stock settings.
    But that's if I run it on balance power or low power.
    If I use high performance power option it's usually 30.

    disagree, with my i5 2500k i can overclock to 4.3 ghz at under 70c with the sock cooler... but i'm about to ode the Kuhler H2O 620 to try and hit 4.7ghz

    4.3 stable under 70c with the stock cooler, I need to see that to believe it. You checking Tcase temps or core temps?

    I would hardly call those 'good temps'. I would say if you were seeing those temps at 4.5-5ghz, then you have something to be proud of...however, there are a lot of folks seeing low-mid 70s Celsius even with a good water loop.

    Good luck with that LCS cooler at those speeds.
  13. I have used cooler master V8 and over clock to 4.6ghz and below 70c, what you think?
