So much less hassle, so much easier and I'm at same clocks.
Exactly.. And let the record show my loop (240 rad/Dtek Fuzion block/D5 pump w/Bitspower top ) was maybe ~7* C cooler than my H50 w/ Push fan and shroud only.. Not this 10*, 15*, and 20*+ difference everyone likes to throw around.. When properly set up an H50, H70, and Im sure soon to be H60 will hold their own.. I will not deny building my loop was fun, and I'm considering a loop for my 570, But Im going to keep my H50 for my upcoming Sandy Bridge build.
Now with an overclocked i7 being as hot as they are, I can understand if the H50 is not enough for some. .. But on a Phenom, at max voltage they sure put in work.
