is there also hot air coming out of the vents where the push fan is?

It is basically the same voltage on an H50/H70 & any good air cooling to stable your same overclock - unless you change to another motherboard & your CPU getting overheat issues
How 'bout we agree to disagree,...I ran my H50 on my Q6600 and was able to do the same clock at lower voltages and the same with my Q9400,...it could be the lower case temps, NB, SB, MB and PWR temps I don't know, but what I do know is that's what happened in my case. Every computer setup is different YMMV.

I agree with you. Everybody keeps saying it's not "real" water cooling. If I had a 120mm radiator, 2 fans, a water pump and water block, and some tubing, I'd have a "real" water cooling setup.

Wait. . .

Isn't that what the H50 and H70 are? A radiator, some fans, a water pump and water block, and some tubing?

Just because it comes already assembled doesn't mean it's not "real" water cooling.

Glad to know someone else is on the same page. Of course we know the BIG stuff should work allot better especially when cooling additional components like video, north bridge,...etc. but for just cooling a cpu, it's great If you can move the heat to a big enough cooled rad, it will do much better,...BTW I'm not talking crazy overclocks/benching only,..24/7 stuff.

Yep. I currently have my i7 940 overclocked to 3.8GHz for a solid 24/7 overclock, that's all I was ever interested in. I priced out a CPU only water cooling system and it was well over $200. Not worth it for what I need. My $92 H70 does fantastic!

Not sure exactly what you're getting at or what you mean but I have set as a front intake taking up a few drive bays. The fans are both push/pull moving air through the radiator in the same direction and not flipped towards each other if that's what you're worried about. From there I have the H70 with shrouds/fans on both sides slightly angled up to hit my top mounted PSU and exhaust through it's fan and the excalibur fan directly above it at the top.

Hope that answers your question and you can possibly help me narrow down my mistakes if there are some to be corrected. Thanks.

Alright I ordered the H70. I have a feeling its going to be HUGE in my case. DOes it work ok with only one fan pushing as exhaust?

Or has anyone tried running it external on the top or back of the case?

Since when were these temps considered acceptable? Is there a difference in core 2 duo and i7? Or has the mindset in the last 2 years change?

tjmax on i7 is 100C. You're supposed to keep it below 85 but this isn't my rig lol. I just built it for a friend and he insists on more GHz even if it takes a few years off the cpu life.

HT is off also . I just randomly set 1.375v to start off so it could probably do it at 1.344v... but why waste time when it's not my computer and these settings work anyways. He's just using it for facebook and e-mail
