post #21 of 133
The new design looks really slick. That's a damn narrow radiator though.

I think i'll still be able to breathe with my CPU potentially running 10C hotter.

Wait, so the H60 only comes with one fan, right? If this setup were to have two of these newfangled fans in a push-pull setup, would it be about even with an H70?

H70 still has a thicker rad, right?
Once again...

+1 to Corsair for fixing the obvious.
First thing I noticed. I did not like the mounting ring. But it was not that terrible.

I just came off my "real" WC loop for my cpu and gpu and moved to the h50 (I was curious) cause my pump died in my real one. (after 2 years).

My cpu does not run as cool as it did before, but it runs cool enough and it cost less then the high end air cooler I was considering instead. Also with a Push/pull configuration it is very quiet (I got yateloons btw). Also the best thing is it doesn't require maintenance and leak tests and bleeding the loop and worrying about gunk cluttering up your block. And another positive thing is the 120mm rad takes up less room then my 360 rad took up. Also, please link me to a good WC kit that costs $70. I spent much more on my original WC setup.

It is just generally easier... and I took a very small and acceptable performance hit in exchange.


Anyway:
If I were buying a new cpu cooler soon I might take a look at the h60 just because the mounting looks better.

I believe Corsair's H series is still failure! I highly recommending the real WC loop with 120 or 140 RADs to anyone instead of this.

I remember when you had an H50 and loved it.. You also used to be real nice.. Now your on water and think your somehow above all the H50 owners.
I had an H50, went loop, and look at me now, back to an H50..
Why you might ask? Because an H50 can hold up to 1.6 vcore on my Phenom II's... What more can I ask from a cooler?? Is there an air cooler than can do that without hanging a brick off my motherboard?
And who will pay for my rig to be fixed if my loops leaks. ME..
Who will pay if my H50 leaks... Corsair

I believe the Toyota Corolla is still a failure! I think people should buy BMW M3s instead!

Haha, thanks for the laugh.

The H series coolers are designed to compete with high-end aircooling, not with custom watercooling loops.

Building a custom watercooling loop is something I recommend everyone try at least once - I've done it a few times and it was a lot of fun, and there's nothing better than showing off the fruits of all your hard work. Plus, with the right color tubing and good fittings and layout, it just looks cool. But my last loop cost me over $200 and that was before they had expensive bitspower-like fittings and such - just a pump, CPU block, 240 radiator, and a reservoir, and I was more than double the cost of an H70 to cool my CPU. And what's worse, is that it only outperformed the H70 by about 4C or so at idle (and 7-8C) at load.

When I built my most recent system I just used an H70. Maybe it's not quite as cool, but it was a lot cheaper (well, yeah, I get an employee discount of course) and a lot easier and faster. It may not perform as well or look quite as cool as a big watercooling setup, but I like it more than I liked any of the aircoolers I looked at.

Anyway - to each his own. H50 and H70 are tremendously successful and a lot of people love them - but they're not for everybody.
