Overall we are impressed with what the Corsair H60 brings to the table. It didn’t fall too far behind the more expensive coolers in our performance tests and will provide more than enough cooling power for a variety of system builds.
We were also pleased with the acoustic performance of the cooler, although it is clearly audible when dealing with a hot running processor under extended load. Corsair use a PWM fan which only spins up when the temperatures rise significantly. Even at maximum speed, the noise generated isn’t too intrusive.
This cooler doesn’t feature a Corsair Link controller like the H80i and H100i which may disappoint some people who want to be able to play around with every possible setting. However, this cooler targets a much lower price point and subsequently a significantly larger audience.
The Corsair H60 can be yours for £60 from Scan which we think is good value for money. This makes it around £15 cheaper than the H80i and £30 cheaper than the H100i. For those looking to run massive overclocks 24/7 we would be tempted to opt for the H80 instead but in most cases, the H60 will be more than enough.
- Impressive performance.
- Good compatibility.
- Not too pricey.
- Quiet most of the time.
- A little loud when pushed to the limit.
