First, I want to know if these are even worth it, should I get these for should I just go for something like the Cooler Master 212+ EVO?

As the title mentions, I want to know which of the two would provide better cooling, they cost about the same right now, Im really leaning towards the COrsair one, for the looks.

CORSAIR H40 120mm High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler:

Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid Cooling System:

Another thing I'd like to know is, would any of the water cooling options fit my case?

Specs:
Case: HAF 912
CPU: Phenom II 840T @2.9GHz

Mobo: N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX (Alvorix)
Form factor: uATX
Chipset: AMD 785G
Processor socket: AM Expansion Slots

Well, I'm in the same pickle you are in, Deciding witch of the two to get.

- Will it fit:
- Both of these coolers are meant for a 120mm fan slot. " uAtx" is the same as MicroAtx, Also. From brief research you have a custom built. So, I would advise to get a ruler or comparable to measure the fan slot.
- Most MicroAtx cases have 92mm fan slots. Same goes for prebuilts.

- Witch is better:
- From what i have concluded, they are pretty much the same in performance wise.


Hope this helps, Lozo.

My opinion, Measure it.

If it's 120mm. You're in luck! If not, A nice air cooler will be the next best option.


I'm planning on getting the H40. It's the same price right now.

- Soon to be PC

- Phenom ii X4 980 3.7ghz
- 6950 2gb (to be flashed to 6970)
- 12gb ddr3 1333
- Am870G mobo
- H40 water cooling.

Btw, Nice videos, Lozo.

(EDIT)

Ok, I just realized something that i completely skipped when i was reading your original post.

You have a Haf 912.

This case does and will support op to a 120mm Radiator / Fan in the rear fan mounting area.
Also, If wanted, You can mount the radiator / fan in the rear top fan mounting area.

Sorry for the confusion.
