6/10

That cooler actually doesn't perform badly. It's a variant of the Core Contact Freezer with minor aesthetic differences.
However, the fan used on it is a piece of junk. SilenX fans have a reputation of not moving a lot of air and early deaths.

There are better coolers in that price range.

Examples:
-Scythe Mugen 2
-Xigmatek Dark Knight S1283
-Zalman CNPS 10X Performa

I have the fan from the Hyper 212+ I can use instead.

I am receiving this from my cousin, so it's free.

I hope your not replacing your h50 with this. I'm guessing your not, but hey, everything performs well when it's free!

This cooler should perform okay, not too bad, but definitely not close to the top.

So a Hyper 212+ would be a good investment.
