The following is a video comparing an H70 (which is worse than an H80) and a D12 premium air cooler. You will see that the H70 edges out the air cooler.

If you still think its a poor choice then you obviously have no idea what the differences are between the H50/H60 and the H80.

What people also fail to realize is that many people buy the closed loop coolers because of their smaller footprint. Why I did for one. Its efficiency per dollar is more than a custom loop at lets say $500.

Would you upgrade to the noctua nh-d14?

That goes against everything he just said.

He said he uses it for the smaller foot print and you ask him if he'd upgrade for one of the larger air coolers on the market.

Personally, air coolers will probably become a thing of the past. Considering how much space inside your case some of these behemoth air coolers take up, its a no brainer. You can either get equal performance out of an h50/70 equivalent, or an obscenely huge air cooler...no brainer. Competition and innovation will improve closed loop solutions dramatically as tech improves over the next few years on radiators/heatsink materials, fluids, etc...

It seems after all the reviews and research I went through, the Noctua is much better in cooling.
It's WAY quiter than the H80/70/100 list, and cheaper and sure its big, but so are the Corsairs.

If you still think its a poor choice then you obviously have no idea what the differences are between the H50/H60 and the H80.

The reason why the test reviews all show the Corsair H series and similar Antec models to be inferior to quality HSFs - is because they are thermally inefficient, a poor value and noisy - COMPARED TO HIGH QUALITY HSFs. If you actually read the test data you'd know this and stop arguing against reality. rolleyes.gif

The independent test results confirm exactly what I stated to be true. ...and yes when the H2O system leaks it can destroy hundreds of dollars of PC hardware - as folks have learned the hard way. See the Corsair H50 owners forum. HSFs don't have this liability.

If being in denial makes you happy, great. Enjoy your CLC.

EXACTLY. There are many quality HSFs that are better than the various Corsair/Antec CLC models - as the test data confirms.

For every 10 reviews showing you how bad the H series are, I can find 10 good ones.

They ARE NOT noisey. Need to show you how noisey they are? I can turn mine up to max and still not here it in a completely quiet room. They are just as silent.

And compared to my Noctua, there's only a 1-2 degree difference, in which the H80 win's. As well as being just as silent. Can't here either.

Reviews are nice but there's too many variables. Ambient tempurture, whether the thermal paste was cured or not, did they let the water system get to equilibrium, and many more factors. And then there's the reviews from sites/people that are just so against water and even more against closed loops, making them too biased.

The H coolers are nice if you have absolutly no room for a quality air cooler. Yes, and H80 can get somewhat close to a Silver Arrow or D-14 temp wise it is way louder. The H100 can beat the Silver Arrow/D-14, but is wicked loud in comparison. Most people forget that the fans on those H coolers are rated anywhere from 35DBA to 40DBA....Silver Arrow is rated at 21DBA at full power and D-14 is just as silent.

I'll take my personal experience with both coolers over any review any day. If you call not hearing anything from 6 inches away loud, then sure it's pretty darn loud. wink.gif As for temperature differences I won't bother arguing over 1-2 +\- because it simply doesn't matter.
