How do these compare? - Page 2

That is quite a nice comparison of air coolers as well as the H50 & H70

You see they line up quite nicely with most high end air coolers, the main advantage of them of course is, they're much smaller and since you can mount the rad over a fan port and maybe even have one of the fans outside the case, it makes it easy to find a spot for it.

I believe though, all of those other coolers will be bulky tower coolers.

my other issue is that the H70 (the one that i would get) is more than double the price of this air cooler
My h50 with gentle typhoons cools just as well as the noctuas

now my only question is would a raza 240 kit be a better future proof investment?

I say yes, if you're gonna delve into water, go all out. It takes more maintenance, but outperforms all these current hybrid water type systems any day.

eventually i will have a full water cooled system but as of now i am just looking to do my cpu because my gpus have no voltage control so heat is not an issue

A true water system will flatten the numbers produced by air cooling.

The Rasa kit is good, it will perform within 10oC of the top liquid loops but there's a lot of room for imprvement on it, and it is a long long way from small. You may want to consder where in your case it will go.

It will take 2 adjacent 120mm fan slots, protrude a good 8-10cm into the case and take 2 drivebays.


(But it is worth it)

this i am aware of, i was planing to take my DVD drive and move it to the bottom 5.25" drivebay, put the pump and res in the middle two bays and leave the top one covered, then cut a second hole in the top of my case for the second 120mm fan so the fans and rad would occupy the space of the top drive bay and a little more out towards my PSU
