What's your reason for going with the H50/70 over the tuniq you already own? My reason was noise as the H50 is a bit quieter than the fan I had in my tuniq but the temps using the tuniq were slightly cooler. It's been so long that I don't remember the temps exactly but I know the H50 wasn't as cool but it was still low enough for me.

I'm really leaning towards the H70 with some decent fans.

Can anyone recommend some fans?

I was thinking Yate Loon High Speeds.
It depends what you want - I swapped out the noisey Corsair ones and put on Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-14's which are virtually silent and gave me about a 1c drop in temps

But if you want some jet engines get some deltas

lmao jet engines.

Ok I'll get the scythe gentle typhoons AP14's.

My reason for switching is because I'm going to be running my new Q6600 under it.

I don't think the Tuniq is cutting it anymore

With linX temps in the 80's and low 90's on an E5200 @ 3.2GHz, I should think that the H70 would outperform the Tuniq.

Just a guess though

I think some high-end air coolers are better than the H50/H70, but the H70 is pure win if you need a high-end cooler and don't have much space.

The only thing about that, is that the H70 is still bulky, you just get to move it away from your ram and other components a bit (the cables aren't that long).

OP - You also might want to look at GT AP-15's as they are 450 rpm faster and jump up considerably in static pressure (good for rads).

I think they will be marginally louder but my 14's are silent

Awesome thank you so much Tats. I can't wait to get an H70.

They're selling for ~80 CAD here in Canada so I'm gonna pull the trigger on one on Saturday

And for the Gentle Typhoons, I'll definitely buy them

I will say though, don't expect it to be much better, if at all than the Tuniq. The H70 is still behind the larger top-end air coolers, but you can use quieter fans and it is less intrusive than the Noctua and the Silver Arrow.

I had a Zalman 9900 (I think) and my temps dropped 6ish c maybe. I do like it, but in the interest of full disclosure I will be upgradingto a WC loop in the future. Just don't want you to have unrealistic expectations.

You might want to look around before you do that. I know the Megahalems is selling for around $60 US here and it is much better performance wise
