H50 or 212+

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I did notice a much older thread on the topic but I am curious on peoples current opinions on which is better.

At the moment I have a 212+ with Push/Pull blademasters (2000rpm) and when I overclock I get idle 38c and 55-58c full load. I'm curious if I was to purchase a H50 at bestbuy if I might get better results. I'm having a hard time comparing the 2 on which might be a better options. Obviously if the 212+ is better I'll just keep what I have. But any opinions will be much appreciated! (P.S I basically want to keep my overclock but just cooler)

I suspect the H50 will keep temps roughly the same, you might see slight increase in performance (cooler temps) from the H70, but probably not enough to spend money on a new cooler. An H70 may allow you to keep the same temps, but run quieter fans, if that's something you're considering too.

Hmm well I just splurged and bought the H50 from best buy and spent 2 hours installing it haha. Well the temps are about the same with 1 fan on the radiator. But hey the novelty is really cool, I love it haha.

Add the second fan for push pull and the temps may drop a bit more...
