  • Hey guys, how are you?

    We were very happy to meet you once again at our very own ADX OC Nation event, and to see our participants right now involved and exposed on other Overclocking events.

    As you may know, CPU/RAM/GPU/ overclocking needs a greater cooling system because of higher temperatures, so right now we\'ll share what we use everyday at home and at work.

    Antec Kuhler 620 and somewhat of a real world performance review.

    By: Carlo Dinglasan aka TPC fakuryu

    It has been a while since the Antec Kuhler 620 hit our local market, good things about it spread via word of mouth and a few weeks ago I was asked to do some sort of a mini \"review\" of this awesome cooler.
    So, I took the time and liberty to clean my PC to have a decent presentation.

    Attached the \"kuhler\" firmly and it was time to do some \"mild testing\".

    System specs:

    Intel i5-3570k
    Asus Z77m Pro
    8gb GSkill Ripjaws X
    128gb OCZ Vertex 4
    Sapphire HD7850
    Seasonic M12II 520w
    Aerocool QS202 mATX case

    Firstly, do make sure that your case has an adequate airflow, aside from my case\'s stock fan (140mm), my fan configuration is:

    1x 140mm front intake
    1x 120mm fan side intake
    1x 120mm fan top exhaust

    Antec Kuhler 620 2x 120 push/pull configuration rear exhaust
    So after installing the pump and radiator, I used the stock fan of the 620 in rear exhaust configuration and added a high static pressure fan as it\'s intake. Please do note that my overclock settings might not work out for you since it is a case to case basis.

    The first run, I used the stock settings of the motherboard and the processor to simulate a worst case scenario since stress testing the processor is not really logical for someone who uses a computer for normal everyday tasks. I ran the Prime95 Blend test for a few minutes, closed panel and the temperature immediately shot up to 70ºC when my idle temps hovers around 49ºC to 50ºC. Seems high when my PC says that the ambient temperature is just around 28ºC, I don\'t believe it since it\'s a lie! Well I really don\'t have a thermometer here but it does feel hotter than 28ºC from where I am at (or just really really humid), it would have been nice to have air-conditioning in order to have a more controlled testing. Some did say that their stock i5-3570k shoots up to 75ºC but did not say what were the parameters but with the current hot weather and that the Ivy Bridge is a known hot processor, I\'ll take that stressed 70ºC any day!

    The second run is an overclocked run at about 4.5ghz which is 1.1ghz above the stock speed of 3.4ghz and increased the voltage for stability. I did expect an increase in temperature and this baby runs hot peaking around 83ºC! But then again, this is a worst case scenario that most users will never experience.

    The last run is my 24/7 overclock of 4.2ghz with a voltage of 1.115v in the BIOS. A few minutes run and the temperature hovered around 73°C but granted that our weather is just that hot, it performed decently for a stress test that will fully load my processor for a daily use that will never even hypothetically happen.

    So what does all of this test mean? Well nothing actually, the cooler performs admirably but these are situations that rarely happens to an everyday user. When gaming, I usually have temps of around 55ºC ~ 65ºC and the PC runs just fine.
    Would I recommend the Antec Kuhler 620? Yes I definitely would, I even bought one full price when it first came out to pair with my i5-3570k. With a relatively affordable price of PHP2500, it really does give a lot of bang for the buck especially for some enthusiast or some that just wants to have a clean internal layout for their PC.

    -Even with new and improved closed looped system coolers, the Antec Kuhler 620 still offers a lot for the price.
    -Very easy to clean and maintain vs. those towering coolers
    -Aesthetically, it does look clean and looks great.

    -Bit tricky to install, took me more than 30 minutes during my first try.
    -Still relatively cheap but there are also a ton of great air coolers in the market that offers almost or the same performance at a lesser price.
