I agree, the Mega really shines once you start really pushing the limits. The H50 does a great job but can't be push quite as hard as the Mega. On an i5 750 running 3.8Ghz they will be about the same, but once you bump that up to 4.0GHz the Mega will pull away.

I still have my build in my Scout case. Its been running since I built it.... (Had to do a re-install last week... Lost my C drive in it.)

Edit- Picked up a new Nikon D3000 DSLR the other day too and have been playing with it too.... Thats what I too the pictures of the car with. Still learning how to use all the features on it. Its an entry level DSLR, but really seems to work nice with all the settings on auto.

Ya know I gotta say this and if E wants to throw me out on my face, then so be it, but I find you to be mostly negative, even though you offered to help me out in my time of need. I appreciate that. I really do, but you strike me as a step over a dollar to save a nickel kind of guy. It seems to me that every time I offer information that I've spent time researching and testing and checking my facts before posting and then stating that I may in fact be wrong and this is only my opinion, you come shooting in and stomp on everything I have to say. I feel like I'm trying to argue with my wife.

I'll tell you what. You get yourself a Scout and not that Elite 330 you've got, which is a great budget case, and megahalem with an i7 quad core OC'd to 3.6Ghz and post your individual results of your personal experience with screen shots like I have done instead of posting some conjecture you inferred from whatever articles you may have read and I'll give you kudo's. Until then try and be a little more open to what is right in front of your face. Dollar for for dollar, the H50 is a great cooler for the Scout. It may not beat out the megahalems in an air only optimized situation, but for most of us poor, broke souls it's an awesome small footprint, non motherboard stressing, megahalem competing CPU cooling solution without going full on water in a case never designed to support such hardware.

Smell the glove Papa, smell the glove!

I'm a Ford man rf, but that's some tasty looking Chevy Stovebolt Iron there. I'm only guessing, '53-'54??

If I could afford it I would. But just because I don't own one doesn't mean that I haven;t worked with them. But whatever. I post the truth and most of the time it is positive, but I refuse to give people the response they want instead of the response they need. If that goes contrary to what you think and believe then so be it. It's obvious I'm not wanted or appreciated here so adios.

What did you use for the test?? What about file transfer rates & real world data rates, like 1mb 8mb, like that? Also, why is it all uncached? What about Cached data? Are you going to do it in a month, then two, then three to see if there's degredation? Don't writes always improve in Raid 0 because the work is traded off like with multi-cpu or gpu setups?
What puzzles me most is my sequentials were: 349.75 Read, 168.68 Write.
Yet your 4k & 4-64k's were wicked fast!

@ kev_b: Hi Kev!!! Can't wait to see what you make of that setup!

@ Rockr: Thanks for doing the testing! I still can't see the megahelam <sp > side of things, just the weight difference is enough for me to stay with an H50. Oh, Marsha did Mindy's hair, have to take a pic to post! I know you liked the color streaks before, you gotta see it now!!

Ok on those computer decals. What am I not seeing & why? The all look like a white logo on a grey backround or the other way 'round to me??

On the fan issue, negative pressure and all that stuff: Ok, those who were here may remember. I had my Haf set-up with 4 120mm Zalman fans on the side & the two on the top that pull air through the rad, into the case. The fan on the back hole was weak & the one in front was the stock Cooler Master 230x 200, esssentially a 200mm fan.

The pressure issue: It was positive for sure, the Haf has these little louvers on the side panel at the front, pointing down. There was always air blowing out of there, the vent holes in the optical drives, the holes around the card reader & the one bay that only has a screen covering it. The back fan seemed pretty nulled out, put a tissue behind it, nothing, you have to take the cover off in to do the front test, voiding everything.

The noise issue: This is why I changed, the noise of 6 - 120mm Zalmans was in the range of hearing that I have a problem with & it didn't take long to get on my nerves! BAD! < yeah, like him, I didn't want to compute, for the first time since 1984!!

So, I also didn't like the idea that my entire case was blue themed. Blue 12" CCFL's, Blue tubing, Blue LED's, Blue paint on the front grills. BLUE, ok? One problem. The Haf 932 comes with a Red LED fan in front & this was one time that the Blue & Red didn't make Purple!

Not long & I ordered the 2 - 200mm Blue LED fans, 2 GT 1850's for the rad, Blue LED's to put behind the res. The only thing in there that isn't blue is the LED's that light up the pump, they're white, it looks good that way. So, being the avid, er... Rabid, tester that I am. I took copious amounts of notes on how everything was running and all the temps with all the programs that I could find (free ones anyway).

New stuff came in, the 4-120's on the side became the 200mm 750rpm Blue one that's there now, the front also was replaced with one of those. Cooler Master sells a Haf 932 like this now, it's called the Blue Haf 932! Sheesh! How long did that take?? Also, did the replacing of the back fan with the stronger quieter Noctua.

Interesting enough. With one motor running instead of 4, the noise went wayyyyyyyy down. Checked the temps. The Cpu went from running around 34c at idle to what it is now, 26-28c, the gpu (the one Rockr has also dropped around 6c. I see it like this, first, 1 motor runs cooler than 4, then, the air is no longer being forced through the grills, it's pulled by the front & side fans which is the main draw, but there's the air that's brought along for the ride that comes through the now open grills. I have the side panel off that's on the side without the fan right now. Temps increase about 4c when I do this, put it back & they drop, messes up the air flow I guess.

Agree with the LOGO.. I loved my Commodore 128. The salesman told me when I bought that I would NEVER need that much internal memory..

on the Data for the i7 and the Megahalem dominance of the water cooling of the H-50. While I know the M.H. is a wonderful air cooling solution, I find it hard to believe that the H-50 long term cooling was less than the air cooled ... but I could be wrong.. Wow.. I can't believe that I actually just disagreed with Papa Smurf. I am in shock..

What is that? A 52 chevy or older.. It looks so choice.. Good Idea to put the Power stearing in too. Love the Gauge package.. I know you don't have the same rear end or tranny. PRobably a 350 block with auto and a ford 9 inch rearend. dual caliper breaks and of course tuck and roll interior..
