Aurora R10, Corsair H60 black?

Hey, I have an Aurora R10 Ryzen edition and I want to upgrade to a liquid cooler. I have read that the H60 is the best solution. However, the model I see everyone use (the 2018 model) is no longer available. On Amazon, I have come across the H60 black. But it looks a bit bigger. Has anyone used this model and will it fit in my Aurora R10? The link to the cooler is below:

If not can someone recommend another liquid cooler?

I don't have any performance data on either AIO. The Kraken is 32mm thick compared to 27mm thick for the H60. Theoretically . . . thicker rad should provide more cooling. The Kraken is 5mm shorter, so it should install easier . . . H60 is a very tight fit. The Amazon H60 black seller reported the radiator dimensions in inches rather than millimeters. I would avoid it for that reason alone. Also, the item linked is "pre-owned"; another big avoid.

The Hydro Series H60 (2018) is just currently "out of stock" on the Corsair web site. You could get on the notification list for back in stock, or if you do not want to wait, this NZXT Kraken  is actually 5mm shorter and 5mm thicker than the H60,

Does the Kraken work as well as the H60? Also does the H60 black not fit in the R10?

Thanks for the reply. It helped put my mind at ease. I will try the Kraken.

Take some photos of your mod and share them here to perhaps help others . . . if you don't mind.

Hey, I have gotten the Kraken 120 and installed it in the R10. I plugged everything (except the led cable), but on startup, I am getting a CPU fan error. Any ideas why and how to fix this?

CLC coolers typically come with control software for the pump and fan, and there's a USB connector that connects to a MB header to achieve that control feature.

Don't know about this model, but highly unlikely it is the same.
