    Antec AIO Watercoolers

    Hi guys.

    I wanted to show you the new watercoolers we have arriving in January across Europe.

    We have two models coming
    Antec H600 Pro 120mm AIO CPU Watercooler
    Antec H1200 Pro 240mm AIO CPU Watercooler

    They are produced by Asetek for us and Antec have decided to go with FEP tubing. FEP tubing offered better evaporation resistance compared to rubber tubing that some other units use and FEP tubing is more flexible too, so if you have a build with limited space our tubing will also help you with any location and actual installation issues you may face with other units.
    We also are offering a full 5 year warranty with these, some other brands are limiting their warranties to only 2 years. This is because we have faith in our products and we expect these to work for a very long time for sure.

    The H600 and H1200 comes with Blue LED fans

    The biggest positive thing about these units is the RRP.
    Antec H600 Pro 120mm - £39.99 inc VAT
    Antec H1200 Pro 240mm - £59.99 inc VAT

    Any questions I'm here to answer!

    Here are a few pictures to show the products.

    Re: Antec AIO Watercoolers

    When can we expect to see some benchmarks? Have review units been sent out?

    Re: Antec AIO Watercoolers

    So far I have only sent out a few units to various resellers and dsitributors.

    Our review units that are being flown over to Europe should land in around 10 days.

    However the feedback from resellers in the UK and other regions has been very positive.

    the fact is, the performance was nigh on identical and the h100i was a £110 product when it was current.
    for the money, they are bang on. they are made by asetek too which is very reassuring from a build quality point of view.

    Re: Antec AIO Watercoolers

    Let's hope that these are a better effort than the awful mounting system that the Antec Kuhler H2o 950 had. If it hasn't then these are sunk even before launch.

    Re: Antec AIO Watercoolers

    Hi

    Wondered if you could help me

    I've just bought an Antec H600, to fit in my Antec 900 Case, however looking at the install pictures the radiator fixes to the case and the fan onto the rad. however the rad will not fit straight to the case due to the shape / size of the case,

    but if I fit the fan to the case I could then fit the rad.

    So the question is does it matter which side of the rad the fan it fitted

    Many Thanks

    Peter

    Re: Antec AIO Watercoolers

    No, you can install the fan either way round. There maybe a small difference in temps doing it various ways, but realistically your temps shouldnt be affect more than 2-3 degrees.

    After over an hour, I finally managed to attach the block to the CPU socket. By then I was so worked up, I would NEVER buy another Antec cooler. The retention mechanism is the worst I have ever had the misfortune of using. Bolts that go all the way from the front to the back ARE A TERRIBLE DESIGN.

    You should have 1 set of fixtures to bolt the retention bracket to the board and then another set to bolt the block to the retention bracket.

    And then there is the quality of the bolts......one of them cross-threaded very easily and the hex-heads that sit in the retention bracket do not get held firm while you are (attempting) screwing the other half in, making tightening the bolts up very difficult.

    Take a look at the Corsair units. That is how a decent retention mechanism works. These Antec units are the most basic attachment possible and it shows...but hey, you probably saved 50cents per unit!

    Re: Antec AIO Watercoolers

    Thanks for that report Shaitis. I'll be in the market for a decent AIO in a little while and you just made the job of choosing one a little easier since I can now rule out these units.

    Sounds like they haven't learnt at all then & I also will strike this from my list of ones to look at.
