Let’s start the closer inspection on the 620-model. The model comes with the typical load of mounting hardware for all platforms that matter, a manual, and a fan. As standard the block comes with TIM pre-applied, which removes one step from the installation process.
As said in the intro, the basic idea behind all these closed loop coolers is exactly the same, and really it’s hard to point out differences compared to the Corsair H50 and Coolit ECO A.L.C. Anyway there is one thing that really sets the Antec coolers apart from the crowd and it’s the hoses. These rubber tubes are a lot easier to bend and work with than the ribbed tubing seen on the competing models.
Looking at the base of the cooler it’s once again the same thing we’ve seen before, a copper base a thin layer of TIM applied. The base is finished to near mirror polish.
The thin profile block-pump-unit also contains the fan controller that automatically changes the speed of the fan between 1450 and 2000 RPM. The minimum speed of 1450 RPM sounds awfully high, but thankfully this fan uses a standard connector so one can simply plug it into a third party controller if lower fan speeds are needed.
