So I have read some mixed reviews on these... some people say they barely do better than air cooling and some say they are great. (I am talking about specifically the H50, haven't really read much on the H70)

They perform on par with the top air coolers. My lapped TRUE performed better than mine but after lapping the h50 it now performs better on load temps while the true had better idle temps. I used the same fan on both and my yate loon is louder pulling air through the rad than it was pushing through the TRUE. Thats the only difference imo was the sound really.

So the H50 was actually louder than the air cooler? So since they are roughly on par performance wise I was thinking of just getting the water cooling unit for possibly less noise, but if the performance isn't as good and it is also louder... what's the point?

just swapped my h50 to exhaust and the temps went up 2c , good to have the airflow right though .. Notice the corsair fan spinning off its head way over factory spec at about 2600+ rpm

The h50 makes little if any nose at all the noise is dependant on the fans you are using .

Wow that is a bright cathode... or is that just your camera? Where did you get that or did it come in the case already?

I think Im the first person in history to have an H50, Love it... Go full loop, Then come back to an H50 and be just as happy....

Just thought I would share that.

the unit itself makes no noise. However when I took the exact same fan off the TRUE and put it on the h50 rad its louder. I think its because it has to fight harder to get air through the rad and out the back of the case. Its definetly louder if you dont want to believe me its fine. its loud enough to where I am debating whether to keep it (got it used from a friend cheap).

I am sure its much qiueter with the stock fan. The unit with no fans powered on is silent really.

I saw your posts over in this thread,

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...kup-h70-4.html

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.
