Testing and Setup:

Testing of this water cooling unit will involve applying a load simulated by Prime95, using small FFTs in stock and overclocked scenarios, where both idle and load temperatures will be recorded. Load temperatures will be the maximum value displayed in RealTemp after running eight threads in Prime95 for one hour, and idle temperatures will be the minimum recorded value by RealTemp with no computer usage during a period of one hour. The temperature values for each of the four cores will be averaged and displayed in the graphs below. The ambient temperature is held at a constant 22.5 °C throughout testing of the Corsair H60, as well as the comparison heatsinks. All the data shown in the graphs below is in degrees Celsius. The included thermal paste from Corsair will be used during testing and thermal pastes as packaged from the other coolers were used with each heatsink, respectively. The fans on the each cooler will be run at full speed for these tests.

Well, it seems that this tiny little water cooling unit has surprised me. Corsair is definitely doing something right with this unit, but it does appear that the small capacity causes the temperatures to suffer as the heat load increases. This is a common observation that I will explain in my conclusion.
