After having everything taken out of the box you will have the hardware kit for installing it onto any current computer setup. The Antec Kuhler 620 itself in the middle and then the Antec Fan. Starting with the fan we have an Antec 120mm x 25mm 3pin Fan. The fan speeds Antec has on the spec sheet for the fan is 1450 – 2000 RPM. There is no rating on the fan itself for the CFM so there is no idea to really how much airflow is being put out and through this.
The next part we have is the radiator. The radiator is just a little bit bigger then a normal 120mm case fan. But the real dimensions of this are 151 mm (H) x 120 mm (W) x 27 mm (D). The radiator is about the same as the first one Corsair released. It is pretty thin which means there isn’t much coolant in it and then also means that there is less to cool and that the fluid inside will get warmer faster and then will be harder to cool.
Now we are going to take a look at the CPU block which also has the pump built in it. Which is what push’s the fluid to the CPU block to cool the processor along with pulling it through the closed loop. Looking at the bottom of the block they already have the thermal paste applied to the copper plate which will make installation a simple and easy install. The other side has the printed a top sticker that says Antec Kuhler 620.
The tubing is next, Antec choose to go with rubber hosing, which I think was a good idea as other AIO water cooling systems use a rigid tubing which restricts the flow of water. The rubber is also good since it allows the tubing to be bent more than normal so it is able fit and be used in more areas where it would be hard with other coolers to install.
This last picture will show the 90 degree angle fitting that come out of the water block. This picture also show’s a better close up of the rubber hoses.
