But the same could be said to your post.

We tried to tell you, for that little performance increase for the Corsair Hydro Series H70 CPU Cooler $159
VS
Noctua NH-D14 ($109) + (2x Scythe GT AP15 = $48) = $157 (which would still be better and cheaper than the H70)

VS

XSPC RASA 750 RS240 Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit, which is $20 cheaper ($139) and as I said would kick the numbers off of the the H50 and H70 dials.

Sorry dude but I have been around the block more than once and the general consensus is that the H50 and H70 are nothing more than a case space saver, and only performs within a few "and I mean a few" degrees from the top air coolers so that makes the price premium a rip off performance wise.

Now had I have been looking at size vs performance then the all in one H50/H70 would suffice.
But then the XSPC Rasa 450 RS120 Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit would kick once again at the meager price of $129 AU.

So how does your H50/70 stack up now?

Also what do you use to cool ? I cannot see an entry in your system spec which alludes me to believe that you are on stock cooling.

I personally use a H50. How could the same be said? I agreed thaf the Noctua is a better cooler temp wise.
I didnt actually mention anything about the RASA kits? I totally agree wth that.

I just said that that guys was oviously stuck to one opinion. Just like my father (Mac fan)... Its not a big deal.

No way have i expressed H70 fanboyism, except mybe the exception of "Eat a h70 filled dick" but that was more for lawlz.

Seriously dude, my opinion is that i would rather a H70 than a D14, mostly because of the size but also the strain on my mobo and the customer support of Corsair. (Plus you can claim your ("Watercooled" )

Thats it. He wanted a big air cooler thats small. I gave him almost the same cooling but thats smaller.

I feel sorry for your old man the "mac fan" so deluded. Also the customer support from noctua is almost second to none, but that is due to the time it takes for stuff to get mailed to me.

Also the NH d14 doesn't put much strain on the Mobo at all I was missing the second screw along the top (closest to CPU socket) and it didn't bend the board (even with my 720 BE unlocked and OC'd to 3.7 GHz and reaching temps of 55 degrees 24/7 for about a year).

So I think that it lays your thoughts to rest about the weight of the cooler.

Also having an all in one is so far away from liquid cooling that it's bearly regarded as such around here, it's an all in one kit.

But yeah have fun with that though. Also it seems that you are new to here and power computing also. So what do you do game, render or other with your rig.

Megahalems. Comes with no fans so you can pick which you want, and if you want one or two of them. Utterly awesome mounting system too.

Yes, i know that an all in one kit cant compete with most if not any of the custom loops. However it is a dedicated loop. That will give far better cooling than an all in one with no customization options. Dude the Noctua will put strain on your mobo, thats inevitable... Ohhh i game amd pretty much do it as a hobby, also do some programming. I am new here, but not that new to power computing.

Btw, just realised. "The Noctua box" Nice...

However i am planning on using there 125mm tall 92mm cooler soon in my mini-itx bulid. Sugo SG07-W. I have no doubt that they make very high quality products. Someone on this thread called them the Ferrari of air cooling.

Not as much as you may think, motherboards today are solid as a rock

Nice...Oh BTW welcome to the OCN, good to see another Aussie.

Btw, just realised. "The Noctua box" Nice...

Why thank you, I use nothing but Noctua hence the knowledge. I have been using them for....what 2 odd years. Nothing but good things to say, but I have had 2 fans die on me.

However i am planning on using there 125mm tall 92mm cooler soon in my mini-itx bulid. Sugo SG07-W. I have no doubt that they make very high quality products. Someone on this thread called them the Ferrari of air cooling.

You will not be disappointed with the cooler, I'd suggest putting fans on with a bit more meat to them.

LOL I wouldn't say the Ferrari of cooling, that's thermalright's job..lol.
If noctua was a car manufacturer I would say they are more like Lotus, Mercedes, Bugatti, Maserati. Where it's more about craftsmanship than all out performance.

Anyway dude it's been a pleasure...

Likewise man. Great little conversation there! Looking forward to finally trying Noctua! And hopefully having as great an experience as you! Looking forward to seeing round this forum more and more!

I take it that you read the RED text lol

The CM 690 is a great case, I have the old original and I have no regrets purchasing it, there is plenty of room in there, and it's as cheap as chip at the moment due to the CM 690 II advanced but at $89.00 you can't go wrong.

I am personally looking into the 690 II Adv white and replacing the PCI slot covers with my Nexus vented black ones, also putting in my black thumb screws and spraying the drive cages black to off set the white.



But the CM 690 Adv looks as though it has at least 25mm from the case roof(the metal one) to the plastic (pretty) cover, so that would be nice for when I finally commit to liquid cooling or I'll grab a pair of these to do the whole penguin suite theme.

Thanks, Haha i did read both.
I forgot to thank you for the fan advice also on the Noctua!.

Dont totally agree with your Motherboards are as hard as stone. But i know it was a metaphor or smile. (******* Hate english)

Oh yeah forgot to mention, I would also love to have something like this stenciled or air brushed on the panel.



But yes the "solid as a rock" was a bad metaphor. But with 2 oz of copper between each layer of fiberglass it's solid. I could snap one if I tried (but I won't) but 1.3-4 KG is nothing.
