H60 Cooler Layout
The Hydro Series™ H60 cooling system consists of an aluminum-based 120mm x 120mm x 27mm radiator capable of supporting two 120mm x 120mm, attached to a CPU copper-based cooling assembly via 3/8 inch rubber hoses. The CPU cooler contains embedded magnets to better hold the CPU clip to the body of the cooling assembly. The cooling hoses are attached to the CPU assembly by rotating nozzles, capable of almost a full 360 degrees of rotation.
The H60 comes standard with one 120mm x 120mm x 25mm fan that can be front-mounted for a push configuration, or back-mounted for a pull type configuration as shown in the illustration. In testing, there was no difference seen with fans mounted in push or pull type configuration. Unlike the H100i or H80i, the H60 only has a fluid drainage port on the CPU assembly. Corsair Link™ is not in-built into the H60 cooler.
The H60's CPU contact area is a pure copper-based cold plate, with the pump electronics sitting atop the cold plate itself. The pump is powered via the attached 4-pin fan cable with pump speed monitoring via a motherboard fan header.
