sorry to barge in your review.. but here is my opinion
Great you wrote a review(its very nicely done), but you need to do some comparison with other coolers - as of what I read you only compared it to the stock intel cooler
I said comparison because in the very 1st page you ended with this:
|Corsair Hydro Series Water Cooling Kits
Last year, Corsair made a huge splash in the enthusiast community with the introduction of the H50 all in one water cooling solution. Dozens of review around the web confirmed it had the performance to challenge the top air cooling systems on the market, and the price was also competitive. But many enthusiasts (myself included) turned our noses up at the H50. What’s the point of a water cooling solution that doesn’t undercut the price or outperform the air coolers on the market? The problem as I saw it was that Corsair was targeting a market saturated with excellent alternatives. Was it good, yes…it just wasn’t the best.
Luckily for me and many other enthusiasts, Corsair was listening to the criticism, and they also seem to have identified what I mentioned earlier, the price gap. Why not make something that does top all of the air cooling solutions, for a small price premium? Hence, the Corsair H70 was born! This was built to dominate all air coolers on the market without becoming excessively expensive. Did they succeed in their apparent goals? Based on most of the reviews filtering into review sites around the web, I’d say they did. But I wanted to find out for myself, and Corsair obliged me with a sample to test for your reading pleasure.
Reading that sorta makes the reader think you are going to do comparisons with all the best air coolings out there.. since you clearly said this "but I wanted to find out for my self
" - it sounds like you wanted to prove if those reviews were accurate on their testings... but since you didn't do any comparison.. how did you figure it out for your self.. if its not compared to any other of the best air coolers out there on your review.
I am not writing this of saying my cooler or air cooling is better... nothing like that... is that if I read you wanting to find out for your self.. if other reviews were accurate(that is what it sounds like to me reading that line)... you should have at least did comparison with the best air coolers on your same tests/hardware - people read reviews lately to compare them with other top market coolers nowadays... so it would be great to update your review doing comparison with most of the best air coolers out there.
But your reviews does exactly what you named the title of it *Water cooling for the masses" so I probably wrote here... something that wasn't related to the whole review if it does follow the title of it. =P my bad
