I have a Core i7-960 Bloomfield in my computer in my spare room and have central air throughout the house in that room though thanks to the heat from the PC it's almost 5C warmer than anywhere else when it is running. The rest of the house stays at 22C.

My other two computers with AMD PII 965 and 955 cpu's are my main computers used for gaming and HTPCs they need to stay cool and quite so AMD was the way to go.

The H50 at least with my CPU's is great without going full WC there is no way I could go lower without drastically increasing the noise.

If your temps where 56-58C under load that is a great temp for an Intel I wouldn't expect anymore from an H50 if I did then I know I would be disappointed.
its not me thats expecting more, someone posted about his i7 930 on another page in here, and mentioned the H50 and wanted below 60C load temps constantly, which is impossible to maintain on an i7 as far as ive seen with an H50, thats why i reccomended what i did

Ah missed that part then. I am going to work on my i7 probably by the end of this month dunno what I am going to do with it for sure but the stock cooler has to go it is loud and obnoxious and I get tired of it when I have to work for extended periods.

Was thinking of moving the H50 to it and get a H70 but I want to see a 1 to 1 comparison vs the H50 before I ever buy one. So far nothing but reviews with different fans on the two so not a good comparison.

Ok this question go out to the Cooler Master R4 owners. I'm currently using 2 noctua NF-P12 fans with my H50. I love that they're quiet but my temps jump into the 60s when gaming. (which is almost all the time) I know 60C isn't bad but I live by the cooler is better motto. So I just wanna hear your personal thoughts on CM R4 and would it be worth the money to switch the fans.

P.S. I run an i7 920 @2.66 with HT and the temps in my room are pretty low thanks to the greatest thing in the world, central air.

2.6ghz stock... R4s are good, i personally used them in push pull config on the H50 quite a while, they make a small wind tunnel effect type noise at full speed, they held my i5 750 @ 4ghz at 56-58C full load for over 2 hours, so you should try them, remember, everyones setup will differ and so will results

Probably because the H50 comes with 1 fan, and the H70 comes with 2, but here is at least one I've seen (see the bottom of the page):

EDIT: Er, well, not the same fans, I think I might have read your post wrong the first time, but it does compare a dual-fan setup for both.

Yep seen a few of basically the same thing so far of H70 vs H50 but they always have different fans on the H50 compared to the H70 and some even use stock corsair with a differently matched fan so really throwing off the comparison.

I still been hoping and looking for a 1 to 1 comparison same exact fans on the H50 and H70 and see the results.

Well I'm pretty certain that Corsair used us as a think tank to get their new system out of the planning and development stage. So I think that it's only fair for them to cough up one or several of them to the people that are currently using the H50 and can put it through its paces in a Mid or a Full Tower system.

And since I have 2 fans both the same and of a 2k RPM variety I will be the first to volunteer a comparison of like for like. The only difference would be the double thickness Rad of the H70.

That's a test on even ground I believe. Anything else is just lopsided and not worthy of print.

Also since I have a 932, I can do intake and exhaust. Though I still submit that in a front Intake setup the Lines of the H70 limit forward mounting of the Rad.

Wouldn't that defeat the whole purpose of the H50, since the pump is housed "in" the waterblock? I've seen a few mods involving different radiators / loops (pipes) but I don't think so. It's like putting another pump in your fountain feature in your garden but not switching it on, it will only offer a lot of friction (and maybe generate some volts on the inputs ).
