I saw your posts over in this thread,
Good to see you here doing some research.
The H50 and H70 are built to compete against top end AIR COOLERS.
I am not a fan of massive finned dual air coolers and the wieght they transfer to your cpu bracket, backplate, seems foolish. My case also had an side panel fan that limited the size of air coolers I could even consider.
The H50 is a clean install, minimum stress to backplate and a very simple install.
I wanted to go custom loop but my experience level and no real desire to squeeze every ounce of power outta my cpu (and possibly lower the life span).
The H50 was the obvious choice for me.Edited by Spct - 1/1/11 at 7:49pm
