Megahalems vs H50 - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Mega performed better then my h50. Also the mega will still stay "cool" even if the fans aren't running. You cannot say that about the h50 or h70.

And I thought I was safe using 2x 2000RPM fans in push/pull on my megahalems, at least with that, I get <50c @ 100% load.

yeah, the cooler is optimized for lower speeds. I've tried running higher rpms and performance gain is not worth increase in noise.

i'm running no hyperthreading.

prime95 full load at 70C (tops... usually hovers around 67C). my fan is actually running at ~750-780 rpms.

of course in gaming/other tasks, my cpu is running perfectly cool.

Why not a H70?

I see no point in sidegrading between a H50 and megahalems. There will be no improvement in noise or performance and quite possibly an increase in noise and loss in performance... Why not put that money towards upgrading your 4890?

the h70's larger shroud seems to need a push-pull config with higher speed fans. with 1 800 rpm fan, the airflow might not even clear the h70's shroud.

I'm mainly doing this for the eyecandy that would clear around the cpu socket on my mobo showing me more of the "goods".

I can max out my games that I play right now and don't see a need to upgrade until Homefront or BF3 taxes my system.

if i were to buy a cooler I'd get the h50 but coming from a megahalems that's definitely not a wise move. I think it even outperforms the h50 by a slight margin.

Corsair H50 pushpull -> <- Mega pushpull.


Story repeats itself for push only or pull only.
