Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 120 VS Corsair Hydro Series H60

Which one is better and quieter? I have heard the H60 is better but wanted to make sure it is before buying it. I am going to use a i5 8600k and a MSI Z370-A PRO.

  1. H60.

  2. h60 all the way. I'm using a h60 on a i5 7600k overclocked to 4.7ghz and it performs as well as the h100i v2 in my opinion.

  3. If you looking for better performance and less noise, neither. A HSF at that price range will easily outperform both in cooling and quietness.

    that air cooler is no good for a medium to high overclock. go for liquid.

  5. 3 of those aircoolers are equitable to a cryorig H5, which is plenty good for a mid-range to high OC on an i5 of 7th gen or prior. The Fuma is equitable to a Noctua NH-D15 or Cryorig R1, which is plenty for extreme OC on an i5.

    The closest equitable aircooler to a corsair H55/H60 is the CoolerMaster Hyper212 Plus/EVO and considering performance to price, the smaller 120mm aios are generally not worth it unless there is a reason, like used as a gpu cooler or in SFF cases where space for air cooling is limited.

    As for Op, the 2 aios will perform similarly, however, Corsair had a very long and earned reputation with being extremely proactive in warranty, leak, rma issues in the hydro series coolers. I can't speak for CoolerMaster, they are relatively new to the aio scene.

    As I already mentioned, it performs better than those liquid cooler. If those coolers I mentioned can't push high overclocks, neither will those AIOs.

    AIO isnt always better than HSFs, especially in this case.

    my h60 performs as well as my h100i v2 did, no joke. I'm overclocked to 4.7ghz and 1.180v on my i5 7600k and my temps are 30c idle 55c under load. not bad in my opinion.

  8. Did you use the exact same CPU with same overclock settings with both CPU coolers. Did you make sure ambient temperatures were exactly the same during both tests, as well as case airflow? What were the noise levels? Did you even test the HSF coolers I mention, or just assume they don't perform well?

    Because professional online reviews prove otherwise.

  9. The difference being that he's at 4.7GHz at 1.18v with an i5. Usually ppl aren't hitting that high at that low vcore. My 3570k hits 4.3 at 1.14v and my 3770k hits 4.6 at 1.208v. So the wattage output is considerably lower for that cpu vrs my i7. At 4.6GHz I'm looking at @160w or so, which is well beyond the 150w capacity of an H60 or @120w to keep it under 70°C.

    I guess I hit the silicon lottery.
