I actually come from them
Got an H50, then replaced by an H70. I even toyed with some fans for them, like mid speed Yates and CM excaliburs. But the jump from SLI 450's to SLI 470's is what made me consider watercooling. But i loved them (and still do)
Amazingly, my loop has not let me down. My CPU got to 75c on my H70 w/stock fans at full throttle(blame tropical temps), and now it gets the very same temps, but that is after getting hot water from both my video cards (it goes through one rad first, but still, 2 470's at full load do generate quite the heat). And my 470's don't even get to 60c, on full BOINC load. That is commendable, especially after a 35-40% overclock.
CPU's may not see such a HUGE drop, but i bet your videocard will do.
