Tiny Tom reviews A LOT of gear. He knows what he's talking about. But he's not as up on the Hydro Series as we are. I posted on his H70 review. I'm hoping that he hasn't shipped the H70 off yet so he can add a shroud at least and see if that made a difference.
We can't expect him to fine tune it though since the gear he reviews is on loan. He's the reason I got the CHIVFormula though. Cause he had to plead with Asus to do the review prior to launch. He was the only review out at the time. If he hadn't reviewed it I would probably have gone the M4A89GTD Pro series instead.
You should have seen the Asus 5970 LE GPUs' he reviewed. Hardshell cases that have RoG mouse badge and all the other goodies for over Â£1000
Anyway, he tested it as supplied. And he did say that he was encouraged by the 50mm thick Rad which alot of the Reviewers of the H50 had issues with.
Some people think that Corsair is missing the boat by not offering the H70 with a 240 Rad. I think that's not realistic for a bolt on water system. It would be self limiting to offer it as a 240 instead of 120, because not everyone has room or the grill space for a 240. Which would limit who could buy one. I think that Corsair is right on the money to double the Rad thickness, but it would hinder me if I wanted to mount it where I have my H50 Rad. Since that is over hafway into my 5.25 rack.
My setup would double in thickness and force me to mount my Opticals in the bottom two Bays. Considering my shroud and fan thickness is 52mm including the fan silencers I use for gaskets. My whole setup would be 128mm thick.
Anyway I passed on how my P/P is setup and asked him if he hasn't sent back the H70 to try it with a shroud and see what his temps are then.
He does run an OC test. No other reviewer I know of does this. I could be mistaken but I've never seen someone like 3DGamerman do this.

We need a case with proper airflow, testing it with some GTs or undervolted UK3Ks to see how this thing really goes!
