I put a H60 on my FX 8320 once. Honestly? it was no better than the stock cooler. Could not even manage the 3.7ghz stock all 8 core boost without throttling.
Changed that to a H100, got another ghz+ out of it.
These are not low end entry level CPUs. They are the big boys so will need sufficient cooling.
That is very interesting HOWEVER 8320 is 125W cpu really. Not sure where you live that makes you assume everybody buys 400dollar cpus but in reality the 6 core and quad ones will sell more in volume. Yet they still need to have cooler attached right?
H45 is actually better performance wise than H60 according to any website, due to a much much bigger pump mounted on radiator and not the tiny one on cpu block. Its currently sitting on an i7 2600k @ 4,45Ghz and i never saw the temperature reach 50C.
Still, corsair supports H60 but not higher performing H45.
If u dont know what is company about its always money. So instant assumption is H45 got left out because it is in some regions 50% cheaper than h60
