Antec Kuhler H2O 620 CPU Water Cooler Review


Unboxing The Kuhler H2O 620

Antec Kuhler H2O 620 box front

In Antec style the packing for the Kuhler H2O 620 is a nice blend of marketing and specifications. On the front is a very nice image of the cooler.

On one end there is a chart that shows how the Kuhler H2O 620 performs against the stock Intel cooler for an Intel Core i7 980 @3.33GHz. The chart shows roughly a 20*C gain in performance.

Opening the box we can see the unit is held in a formed cardboard tray and has a layer of foam sheet between it and the box side.

With the tray pulled from the box we can see the cooler and all the accessories are cradled nicely for shipping.

Antec Kuhler H2O 620 mounting hardware

All the mounting hardware is packaged nicely in a double bag arrangement. I like this less likelihood of losing a small part due to a hole in a baggie.

The pump/cold plate of the unit comes wrapped in plastic.

The cold plate with the pre-applied thermal paste is protected with a plastic shell. The shell holds on to the locking lugs on the pump housing so it will not come off in shipping.
