post #16881 of 28252
Hey guys I have a quick question!

I currently have a Corsair H50 with push/pull on my i7 2600K. I am trying to reach 5GHz but my temperatures are too high to my liking. They go up to 80C load using Prime95 blend tests. So I was looking for a new cooler and the H70 caught my eye. How much different is it from the H50? Is it worth the price over the H50? I can get the H70 for $75 and probably sell the H50 for $45.

I think that you will be disappointed with the H70 for 5Ghz. It's not much better than the H50 if you have done everything to that.

By everything I mean:

Lapp the contact plate
Add extra fan
Add shrouds
Put it in the best spot for your system. If you get better temps Intaking at the front then mount it there. If you get them Exhausting out the top(if available to you) and etc.
Making sure your pump isn't plugged in at the CPU header(mine is on PWR) which fluctuates with temp changes.

The difference between the two is ~3c difference. Not enough to make it worthwhile.

And H50 is on par with Air, so that option is probably out too.

Your best bet however is not gone. You could build a dedicated h2o Loop that would give you more cooling surface(240 or 360 Rad) and a stronger pump to push the flow. Or if it's winter stuff a towel at the door and crack a window.

Just remember to have a space heater handy and warm clothes to stay healthy.

Have an H50 cooling system and read a lot about the "push-pull" setup and decided to go for it. Prior to doing this my temps (Phenom II x4 965) would be about 31~32C with an ambient of 75F. AFTER my upgrade (removed their fan and installed 2 identical fans producing 54CFM each and verified their rotation is correct. ALSO followed their instructions to PULL air from outside into the case). I do seem to feel more air flow coming out of the radiator which I thought would translate to lower temps however, I am seeing 33~34C with an ambient of 80F. This is at idle to doing some very easy tasks. I was expecting temps in the mid to high 20's. I am new to this water cooling arena so bear with me. My computer has 2 exhaust fans in the rear bottom, 1-120x120 front intake, 1-40 pushing out the top, 1-40 pushing out the side and of course the power supply fan. There are other non powered intakes in the front to allow airflow INTO the cabinet plus a vent at the bottom. Are these readings good? ANY thoughts are appreciated. THANKS..

With a 27c ambient 33-34c seems about right. You need to get your ambient temp down. You can't be any lower then your ambient.

This. Also if you add a shroud in between the Pusher Fan and the Radiator it should help increase the flow across the vanes of the Radiator as well as make the setup a bit quieter.

Also don't knock cheap fans like Cooler Master R4s' or Yate-Loon Silents. I have the latter in the High Speed iteration and my system just loves them.

Nothing you do is going to matter though if you have a high ambient temp.

Hang on that came out the wrong way. What I mean to say is exactly how Lucky here said it.

The included resistors with the h70 really make it A LOT more quiet. Nice!

how fast should the H70 pump being going?

My mobo shows it between 1380-1400rpm...it is plugged into the Power Fan header on the Sabertooth P67...

Thats sounds about right. I know the H50 was 1400-1450RPM.

CPUID shows my CPU fan RPM at 1420-1440. I've read it should be around 1400, so you should be fine.

Are you plugged in on your CPU or a more stabilized header? Cause you're not supposed to plug your pump into the CPU header. I can because I can lock mine at full value in the BIOS but I chose not to because you never know when that CMOS gets bumped, borking your settings. I've actually had that happen and not knowing it did my RAM was set back to default as well as all my other settings. At the time I was somewhat oblivious to it. Just came out the next morning and noticed that my fans seemed to be running louder than usual. Went into the BIOS and found that everything had been reset. Was kind of surprised my RAID wasn't but was happy at the same time.
