Liquid coolers have become more and more popular these days. There are many manufacturers who sell service free liquid cooling systems and DIY setups are becoming obsolete. Today we will take a look at Antec’s newest water cooling setup called H2O 620 V4. Let’s see how well it performs.

Antec Kühler H2O 620 V4 comes in a black cardboard box which has a picture of the product printed on top of it. Antec advertises the H2O series as having quick installation, but personally I might disagree. I’ve seen coolers with a lot easier installation procedures. However, let’s take a closer look.
Inside the packet we have the cooler itself along with the needed accessories to install it. The Antec Kühler H2O 620 V4 supports a wide range of processor sockets including AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+ and Intel LGA1155/1156/1366 and 2011.
Also, with the cooler there is a single 120mm fan provided. It is a basic Antec fan with a maximum fan speed of 2000rpm. The fan is meant to be installed in the pull configuration, but users may install it also in the push or two fans in push-pull configuration.
Let’s take a look at the radiator. It is a single 120mm radiator with dimensions of roughly 150x120x27mm. It has about half the thickness of the H2O 920 which we have reviewed earlier. Other than that it is very similar in design.
