I see a lot of Scouts with the H50 and I'd like to ask a few questions about it.
Over time, when it degrades, will I see a lot higher temperatures that would warrant a purchase of a new cooler?
I've also heard that there's a chance of it leaking as time goes by. How worried should I be about this?
no. but in the off chance it does (i only know of 2 and one of them was modded) Corsair will treat you right. (they replaced ALL of the one guys gear for free)
if your looking at the H50/70 you should do it. you wont regret it ,and imo its the best cooler for this case short of modding the crap out of it like i am
