Why wonÂ´t you understand that the H70 is a low quality product?
Its performance is too poor as to have it cool an i7 clocked higher than 4 GHZ.
It is a "closed watercooling solution" in other words junk with a new designation.
One of the most crutial factors in watercooling is heat dissipation.
If you would consider the H70 a watercooling solution (which it is not) ...you could say that it is a 120 mm radiator with fans and CPU block.
1.) A 120 mm radiator can dissipate a maximum amount of 150 watts of heat
2.)An overclocked i7 for example 4.1 Ghz approximately creates around 250-280 watts of heat
3.)That means you would at least need a 240 mm radiator to dissipate all that heat.
Thus the H70 only uses a "120mm radiator" and a very bad block you can do the math yourselve how well it will cool over 4 GHZ
4.)The thing with the high end air coolers is that they require a fair amount of cool air to perform equivalently to the manufacturers specifications. A radiator does too but not even close compared to Noctua and Co.
5.)I put together a shopping cart for you check it out and stop talking about H70 it just does not provide the required cooling performance needed.

,because they are being produced their obviously.So keep in mind that in Europe the price also indicates *shippment,taxes,toll,resell price etc* that is why it is more expensive therfore it loses itÂ´s outstanding value/peformance ratio...and whatÂ´s left is an overpriced mid range performing kit that wasnÂ´t worth the money.Thus it would be smarter to put a good setup by yourself for the money.
UK: XSPC Rasa 750 RS40 = 150 pounds = 234 $ = 180€ and that is ridiculous!
2.)The H70 is technically not a watercooler not being advertised as such.
Though the product has been reported of leaking multiple times.
The H70 is a byproduct of false innovation and shallow assembly.
I strongly recommend not to buy it ...as not only the product itself but its cooling performance as well is very poor.
3.)I already did a quick setup for you but I will do it again.
As you live in belgium the best and versatile shop available to you within in a distance is aquatuning.de so I will prepare a shopping cart for you ....thus it will only be a cpu loop and an over all budget setup I will try to keep it at a low price.
There you go 40€ cheaper than the RS240 and will still beat it
(not by much though^^)
If you wanna invest those 40€ i saved you as well I would recommend taking a better radiator then you will beat the RS240 for sure.
