So am I (if I can get everyone out of wherever their hiding now). But I'm going to raise the BS flag whenever someone makes claims like "the 965 is better clock for clock than an FX" when it is clearly not true (and you gotta love that they don't even attempt at backing it up with facts).

You have to remember that 90% of reviewers on Newegg and Tiger Direct really have no clue. People who know next to nothing but give themselves full tech marks. Putting hard drive cages in backwards, over flexing tubing and complaining about leaking. Not measuring or checking specs for fit before ordering.

Sometimes, just for a laugh when I'm bored, I'll go to those sites and read the reviews on things I own and I know are good products. As the saying goes, most of them don't know their a$$ from a hole in the ground.

One guy, who called himself an enthusiast, bought a perfectly working H70 from me and claimed he couldn't get it to work and that I sold him a faulty used water cooler. Meanwhile, I had posts all over this site with temperature charts and pictures showing it working perfectly before I replaced it with an H100.

Here are a couple of facts for you:

1: The H80 gets excellent reviews from review sites.

2: Sites like the one you're on right now rank the H80 fairly high.

3. Corsair warranties the H80 for five (5) years.

4. In any case I've heard of where a Corsair cooler leaked due to a manufacturing defect (and I can count them on one hand), Corsair has replaced any equipment that was damaged by the leaking, at times with better equipment.

Most of these water coolers are made by two companies, and they have been around long enough to get the manufacturing down pretty good. As you can see, many people put multiple different water coolers in their cases for CPU, and one or two GPUs as well. Obviously these people trust the manufacturers to put that many closed loop water coolers in their cases.

Yeah, kinda figured it was the 'goofy-noob' factor. Thanks for the reassurance guys.

Wish I could fit an H100 in this case. Every time I look at the price of the H80 I'm like, but....but....nooooo!!! rolleyes.gif

I checked....the warranty on the corsair hydro series is 2 years.

Edit - Belay my last, That's on the h50 & h70


Cooling Products
•Hydro Series™ (Models H60, H80, and H100) have a 5 year warranty
•Hydro Series (Models H50 and H70) have a 2 year warranty
•Air Series™ products (Models A50 and A70) have a 2 year warranty

Hey guys, , quick question about these cooling system, I'm new to building computers bare with me please.

Do all the coolers in the Hydro Series use liquid? I noticed that the type of certain Cosair Coolers are either "CPU Block" or "Liquid Cooling System." Example the H60 Cooler is type CPU Block and the H80 Cooler is type Liquid Cooling System. What's the difference? Where does the water go or is there water at all? I notice there's fans and a tube, so does the tube just blow air through the tube to the CPU?

They all use the same thing. Distilled water with a glycol mixture additive.

Oh so you never ever have to add water or anything to the cooler, H100 for example. You just install the fans and it runs like that?

No it's a sealed closed loop system.

So Reviews aren't facts? Reviews that included 955 and 965?

Talk about revisionist history. rolleyes.gif

This ain't the place for this topic however since it's for the HYDRO series Coolers. Not the FX Series CPU. I'm going off the reviews and the reviews show that clock for clock it's not worth buying an FX CPU if you're already on a higher end Phenom II. You can't argue with that because regardless of your feelings the price to performance ratio doesn't warrant the purchase.

You're acting like I'm anti AMD. Please just reign it in and let it go. I have facts and they're well known. It's not like I'm saying anything new on the subject. Tryin to save a guy a couple hundred is not a criminal offense. So please chill. You don't like what I say here then PM me and make your case. Leave it out of the thread please. Can we now get back to the topic? mellowsmiley.gif

*Edit* Official Review thread.

But yeah I don't have any facts right? wave2.gif
