H70 vs TT Frio

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just built my new rig a month or so ago. After temps were a tad bit high with my v1 on, I slapped a frio on there. At 4.4 ghz and folding, my temps are at their max (just under 70c). Was able to get it to a 5ghz OC, the problem being it was too hot.

I was wondering how much a H70 (or some other cheap WC alternative) would effect my temps. At the very least ide like to keep cpu a tad cooler, if temps drop significantly I would probly OC more.

Ty in advanced

h70 should be significantly better. Also consider Noctua NH-D14.

They're at best as good as a great air cooler. At worse, they have higher idle temperatures, and don't really deliver better load temperatures. I quickly went from an H50 with push/pull to a full custom loop.

Well as stated H70 will perform on par with good air cooler...the only things would beat it would be high end air coolers like D14 and SA...

The Antec KÜHLER H₂O 920 is also a great All-In-One type water coolers.

The Noctua DH-14 would be a good choice also.

It's the best when fan speed is maxed out in regards to cooling performance, but it gets very loud. Won't touch real water cooling in terms of actual cooling performance and low noise level, and costs almost as much as the lowest priced Rasa kit(which is better than it for all things), but for exactly what it is - self sustained water cooling; it is the best.

The H70 should be better than the Frio in all areas though, especially since it costs more too.

H70 would be better as stated above, but its not amazing under constant load. That volume of waters heat capacity will buffer out fluctuations in heat, but theres nothing preventing it from running just as warm as an air cooler given enough time.

Real water cooling will give you much better steady load temps and with the price of the XSPC Rasa kit, it may be worth the money to jump straight to "real" water cooling.

Just my 2 cents. Hope I helped.

Have you considered a full watercooling set up like the xspc rasa kits? they will perform better than the h70 and are like $20 more
