post #14601 of 28303
I'm interested in getting some water cooling and this seems to be the way to go. Much less figity than a full custom loop. Does it perform as well though?

Also, is it worth paying the extra 50 dollars to get the H70 instead of the H50? I'm looking to OC an i7 to at least 4ghz, hopefully 4.5 maybe although that may be a bit too optimistic.

Depends how cold it is where you live.
Usually 4 to 4.2GHz is attainable.

H50 vs H70: depends which review you believe. Not a huge difference I think: two fans instead of one, thicker radiator and less bulky pump/heatsink. A bit cooler, but not a lot.

If you don't want to add your own fans and don't mind some noise coming from your fans then H70 I think is worth the extra $$. If you already have some fans that would work well for push/pull or you don''t want your cooler to be loud then H50 and buy your own fans. H50 with two Yate Loon medium speed fans would be a good way to go or if you really want quiet fans then Scythe GentleTyphoon AP-15 fans.

Is there a certain configuration that is recommended for the fans in relation to the water cooling? Would H50 + extra fans be a similar price to the H70?

Yes the H50+ fans would be close to the price of the H70. The H70 with the fans that come with it is quite loud though so all depends what you want for your setup. With the H50 and add your own fans you could have a quiet setup and basically because of the better fans the same or better cooling than the H70. The H70 you don't have to mess with ordering separate fans for if you don't mind the noisy 2000rpm fans it comes with.

H50 + extra fans sounds the go then. Now to find a case...and off to that forum I go!

hmm.. i need some help here. Im getting some new fans for my h50, its either the noiseblocker NB-BlackSilent-XL2 or the Schyte gentle typhoon AP-15. The noiseblocker spins at 1500 rpm max and the gentle typhoon has 1,850 rpm max, but both blow 98m3/h.

Do the gentle typhoons have better static pressure ?

I picked up the H50 at Bestbuy for $69. It's on sale right now. $10 each for some blademaster fans (includes shipping). So for $89 I have an awesome cooling solution. I was interested in the H70 at first but that sells for what, $115 if I remember correctly.

Hyperphysics Bernoulli Calculator (http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu...pber.html#bcal) and see that you'd need the air moving at an near infinitely high speed to get a pressure drop high enough to drop temps below ambient.
LOL, well put Carfanatic. I'd also like to point out that fast moving air by itself is not cooler it simply removes heat faster but only up to a point because there is an increasing amount of resistance from the radiator fins as the air speed increases. Eventually you'll reach a point where the air is being compressed as more and more of it is trying to go around the fins at the same time. Laws of thermodynamics state that the more you compress air the more heat you add to it. So if I was running air at say supersonic speed through that rad it would likely be red hot. Again all that is to say that it is physically impossible to go below ambient temp without some additional cooling factor thrown it like chilled water or phase change cooling etc. If you're down-clocking to 1 ghz then I can see how you temp would come closer to ambient but it will never go below it.
