H50 is going bad.. what should I upgrade to?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The pump on my H50 is starting to get loud so I'm afraid it's going to cut out soon. I need to replace it but with what? With the H50 my temps are good with my 2500k @ 4.5. So should I go for the H60 at $69 or the H100 at $99? Is the H100 really worth the extra $30? Actually it would be more than $30 for the H100 as I'd need to pick up more fans as well.

Have you looked into a warranty repair?

I'm assuming it's out of warranty. I think I've had it around 3 years or more but I'll check.

Never hurts!
My monitor went bad and I was convinced it was out of warranty... turns out I still had like 2 days left. Saved me $450! Glad I checked.
