Corsair H50/70 worth it? - Page 5

FYI-you add the costs of better fans to the H70, and you could buy an XSPC 240 rad kit.
Take a look at the cost of the GT's they run $12-18 each. But I am not trying to discourage you, the H70 seems to be right up your alley, i only went down maybe 2c with the Gt's but the noise reduction was amazing.

It also comes with resistors to undervolt the fans at the cost of a few c higher temps.

I use yate loon high speed fans,they are a bit loud but great performers.And also dirt cheap.Like 4 bucks a piece.

I've WC'd in the past, and it was amazing, but my current case does not allow for WC.

It's a very cheap generic case and one of the other reasons I don't want to go into full blown WC is simply because my max budget is $100, and I can grab the H70 for $84 shipped CAD.

Then the cost of fans for push pull config.

I was thinking either high speed yates or those scythe gentle typhoons.

I have a max budget of $200 for christmas so it leaves me with ~$100 left over.

I do however have a cooler master haf 932 lying around, but it doesn't fit on my desk beside me (it
has to sit there as there's no other way around it).

So the HAF932 is too big and is out of the question, eliminating full blown WC.

I'd rather buy the H70, and something else like RAM, HDD, etc

well not ever looking back. Understood. The H70 isn't a "gimmick" it works well and holds it's own against top aircoolers while keeping a smaller footprint.

@James: I have an H70 since I wanted good temps, in a simple package, yielding a small footprint and stellar after sales support.

Everyone will have their opinions, might as well throw mine for fun right?

A D14 will beat the H70 by a few C, however it is much larger and has issues with ram clearance on some systems. I simply did not want to deal with that. The H70 with my current NoiseBlocker fans keeps my 920 nice, chilly and happy, my Dominators have no qualms either

Getting the H70 over other options at $84 CAD [which is pretty inexpensive imo lol] saves you extra cash for a larger HDD which may come in handy from a 120HDD ^^

I personally love my H70 over my TRUE with push pull. The temps improved my 3-4C which is pretty negligible, but the extra space for proper airflow actually dropped my GPU temps about 6C, which now keeps the fan speed down and the card cooler, it just was worth it in my case.

Short version: The H70 [especially at 84CAD] is agood option, it yields temps comparable to high end aircooling while maintaining a smaller footprint

Wow, nicely done.

I will definitely get the H70 since it performs comparably to high end air cooler.

And yes, that's what I thought, $84 shipped for an H70 is a good deal IMO.

Thanks man.

Go with the h70. Easy install no maintenance. I purchased an h70 no regrets. Unless your into extreme over clocking then go with custom water cooling or a rasa kit
