Which Cooling?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I'm making a new build and i can't decide between the corsair cafa70 and the H50. The H50 is liquid and $20 more, but does anyone know which one has better performance?

What are you going to be cooling with it and are you going to overclock?

An I5 2500 k unlocked processor, and I plan to mildly overclock.

Id say the H50 or maybe even the H70 for a little more money. I had the H70 and it kept my i7 950 nice and cool.

The H70, would I be able to place the fan and radiator on the back exhaust area(replacing the back fan)? And also I'm currently using the dark knight cpu cooler for my i7 950 OCed to 4ghz, with this setup I get 40c idle and around 68c load. Will this H70 make my temps any cooler or would it not make much of a diff?

That is exactly how I had my H70 setup. And IMO yeah the H70 would cool better than your Dark Knight cooler.

I couldnt tell ya offhand since I never used that air cooler before. But from what I hear, the H70 is better than most air coolers. There are only like 1 or 2 that cool as well as the H70.
