Not enough info.

Better in what sense?

Less expensive?

Fewer things to go wrong?

Simpler to install?

For an extreme overclocking situation?

When using a PC a walk-in freezer?

If you just like to play with stuff and have no parameters or situation in mind, I don't suppose it matters what you do.

Hi,

Either will work just as well since the games you are playing don't stress the CPU that much. The H60 is a nice unit - I use it myself. I imagine it might run your CPU a fraction cooler.

The only way to know which is better is to stress the CPU using each cooler.

Based on your usage you described, I doubt that you will see any real world differences.

Regards,
Golden

If you believe what you say, that "cooler is always better", then you would have to experiment to find out.

But you will probably be disappointed, because there is always a cooler out there that will drive temperatures even lower than what you have at the moment.

Leaving aside the issue of whether "cooler is always better".

There are a lot of reviews out there.

Example:

Corsair H60 Water Cooling Kit Review - Overclockers Club

Doesn't compare it to a V6GT, but the H60 doesn't outperform a high-end air cooler.

Even if performance is identical, the H60 puts less of a mechanical load on the motherboard, and has no problems clearing tall RAM heat spreaders. As neither of these affects you, you may not be in a hurry to swap coolers.
