Antec has introduced its latest liquid CPU cooler, the KUHLER H2O 620. The new cooler aims to balance "ease of use, performance and price," according to Antec. As with other ready-made liquid CPU cooling solutions in the market, the KUHLER is pre-filled and factory sealed. This, of course, makes installation easy and leaves no maintenance for the end user. The KUHLER features a copper base plate for good heat conduction, paired with bendable tubes and a 120mm fan running between 1450 and 2000 RPM to cool the radiator. Dynamic switching of the fan speed enables effective and quiet cooling. The pump also has a MTBF of 50,000 hours, ensuring reliable cooling. Antec's internal testing shows that this new cooler increased the performance of the Core i7-980X by 20% compared to the stock cooler. The Antec KUHLER H2O 620 liquid CPU cooler will be compatible with Intel's LGA 775, 1155, 1156 and 1366 sockets along with AMD's AM2, AM3, AM2+ and AM3+ sockets. The KUHLER will retail for US$69.99.
