MaximumPC had an article I read(since forgotten where exactly) that suggests that the H70 radiator is not better than the H50 radiator. Basically saying that the temp difference is not in favor of the H70.

Basically I'm reading into this that they tested the H50 @stock and later on matched those results to the H70 @stock. Keep in mind now that the H50 comes with one fan and the H70 with two. I would love to see someone test both on equal footing. Two fans with a single shroud on identical systems. Both AMD and Intel based. I'd wager that the H50 edges out the H70 in every category.

And if there is any question of this just look at the Antec Kuhler that just launched the last month or so. It's basically both systems combined only with just the single fan. Which I believe is what prompted Corsair to go with Cool-It as their new partner in cooling.

^ that's true
the h70 doesnt exactly provide the "promising" temperatures reduction
only a few degrees,
maybe 5c if you are running faster fans

Well if you're like me and want to be able to see more than the Noctua DH-14 inside your HAF, then I would say go with the H50. Cause there is no accounting for space and the DH-14 takes up A LOT of real estate.

The thing to remember if you go back to the H50 is it's all in how it's set up for the most part. This is how I have it set up in my 932...



Note that I have it set up with the Pump I/O at the bottom and that my hoses are not kinked. I also have the Pusher fan blowing up and out of the cabinet. I tried running it as intake and my CPU actually ran hotter, so I went back to Exhaust. Some people place the whole setup facing forward and use the face of the 932 as an Intake. Make sure your pump is plugged in on a header that you can max out or at least run at 90% power. If you plug it into your CPU header there is a good chance that it will fluctuate and ramp down your pump which can affect the life of it. If you can see it my CPU header is at the top middle of the board. I have my P/P setup plugged in there to control the fan speed as if those fans were in direct contact with the CPU.

As far as a link goes you could go to Performance-PCs.com or Newegg.com or Crazy-PCs.com. Crazy seems to have the best deal on that right now. But not by much and the non-returnable status has me a little leery especially if they're selling remans as new. Not saying they are, but when you cannot return something, you take your chances with the quality of the products you purchase. If they are legitimate well there is a reason they're going out of business. IMHO their prices are why they are. Everyone else is selling at semi-respectable prices while they chose to over-price their stock. It's not like they are a parts house without Net access. It's not the consumer that is responsible for their downfall. Their downfall is due to them not keeping a better eye on the prices of their products. They could get away with their out of date stuff because people had no place else to go.

Anyway off track again it seems. If you want a good deal on a H50, why not google it and look for the most reliable source with a price that you feel is reasonable.

~Ceadder
That's almost the exact same way I set my H50 up. Except I had mine setup as intake and cpu overheated b4 I could change to exhaust. If only the H50 was cheaper like 59.99 I paid while it was on sale, I'd just return the cooler master and get the H50 in store.

I currently have an old Lian Li PC-71, great case but it is showing its age. I am in the process of getting my new updated Sandy Bridge P8P67 rev3 MB. Seeing I have to swap out the MB I figured why not get a new case. I am thinking about getting the HAF X, I have the Noctua NH-D14, will I be able to fit that in this case. The other case I was looking at was the Corsair 800D but that case is a lot more money. I might do water cooling down later on. Thanks

You should have no problems fitting that ginormous heatsink/fan in a HAF-X.

I use my HAF X to sleep in when I am in the dog house. I am 6'2", 300, so you will have no problem.

Yeah I believe you'll be able to jam that puppy in under the hood of the HAF X.

Tiny Tom Logan(OC3D) can so I doubt that you'll have any issues regarding the DH-14.
