I'd recommend that you go with the Noctua NH-D14 over the Corsair H70.

I'd vote for this as well, but since he said he didn't want a tight fit, that pretty much throws out all the high end air coolers. But considering the form factor of the h70, i'd definitely go for that one. It beats almost all air coolers on load and matches the ultra high end ones, but without sacrificing any space. And just because it's called a "water cooler" doesn't mean it's complicated - on fact, it's as easy as installing a standard air cooler. Everything is self contained and pre filled, so there is nothing you have to do on terms of maintenance (except for cleaning the fans of course).

The only problem with it is it's price. It's about 2-2.5x more than a hyper 212+. That being said, I'd definitely go for the h70 even of it's more. It's a better investment in the long run.

vote for this too...
add a delta fan on any of it, will insanely drop the temps too (just be sure to wear some earplugs)

If it fits then I'm happy to be honest I don't mind if it is a tight fit to be honest! As long as it fits

Soo... I don't really want to get the Water cooler one, H50, purely because of the price of it, it's going to be quite expensive! Does anyone know any cheap prices for these?

The A70 looks promising! As I can get one for under £30 Does everyone agree on this choice??

Will look at the Noctua one

But it's all about price and size guys anything under about £50-£60 is good!

Thanks guys I really appreciate the help you are giving me! I will let you know about my research

Ok,

I've found a Corsair H50 for £50... That's good! This is now looking for likely?

Will this fit in my case? (My case dimensions are in my first post on this thread!) Does anyone know the dimensions if the H50 at all?

This looks a great one!

Also, finally, does anyone know if you have to actually put the water into the H50 before fitting it? What is the maintenance like with it?

Thanks again guys, appreciate it!

Best Wishes,

Tristan

the h50 comes sealed (pre-filled).
The only maintainance you will have to do is blow the dust out of the radiator and fan that will eventually build up.

All you will have to do is install the block/pump and attach the radiatio on the rear exhaust space on your case. I would make sure that the fan is blowing fresh air inward, inside your computer and then your top exhaust will get rid of the warm air. Better temps this way than if you had the fan blowing the warm air through the rad and exhausting out of the case.

I have decided I am definately going to go for the Corsair H50!

At the moment, I am finding them for around£50 which is good! But my dad does some work for a computer parts company so he is going to see if they have any there...

As always, Thanks again guys!!

Hi again guys,

So, later today I will be finally ordering my new Corsair H50

One question I do want to ask is, when it arrives, how should I be positioning the fans for their intake and outtake of air? Someone I think said that hot air should be exhausted out the back right?

Just want some advice for that!

Thanks

It really depends. I've heard that having the back fan as in intake helps keep the temperatures down. That makes sense because it would be drawing in cool air from the outside, instead of semi-warm air thats already passed through a bunch of other components.

Try having the back fan as in take and the other fan pulling the air into the case. Run Prime 95 for a few minutes, then switch the fan orientation and see what you get.
