I've had bad experiences with bad temps out of H50's on my i5 2500k is the H60 any improvement? I noticed it's a square base so no rotation needed to get it into place. The reason I ask is it's roughly 20 bucks more than the H50 after the H50's rebate (if it works and I use the MIR that is only 7 bucks more without MIR)

Why not just get a quality air cooler and not spend your money on rubbish like the H50/60/70?

Like mbudden said, I'd invest in a good air cooler. But if space in your case is limited, and the H series of coolers are the only coolers you can fit in your case, I don't think you should go to the H60. It cools at most a few degrees more than the H50, which definitely is the best bang for the buck here.

What's the difference between that and the H50? Bigger Rad?

The Silver Arrow is actually the best air cooler on the market, if I'm not mistaken. That would be a great choice.

Bigger rad and a better waterblock/pump.

I think the fan might be different. But the mounting system is different. It uses a more normal mounting system square as opposed to round. Square plate and all no twisting require like on the H50.

Only problem is I don't know about the site the Silver Arrow would be coming from Directron?

The H50 was only looking tempting for the 60 bucks after rebate and free shipping I guess.

?

I paid $70 for an H70 (and had upgraded from a lapped push-pull TRUE). Not only does it put much less stress on your motherboard but it also provides very decent temps. I'm running at 4.5ghz and top out at 58-59C across the cores with prime. My TRUE + extra bracket clips plus two decent fans cost me more and gave roughly the same temps.

I also have an H50 in my media pc (went from a Thermalright Ultima 90i). Got it for $52 after rebate. Not only does it provide better temps than the old air cooler (and the Ultima 90i is no slouch) but by using PWM fans, it actually is quieter.

I don't think they are rubbish at all. Overpriced if there aren't rebates running but when they are on sale, they are a good option.

That's good to hear. I always hear horrible things about this cooler...(Mainly just people with an actual water-cooling setup.) But this isn't as much as a quality water-cooling setup. I've been looking into it for when I go for my upgrade. If it was an improvement/equal to the TRUE. Maybe it would be an improvement to the Dark Knight I'm currently using.

I went directly from a TRUE on my sig rig to the H70 (and I still have stock fans on it, no sign of AP-15's anywhere).

Idle temps improved (not really relevant) as did load temps on the average of 2-3C.

Incidently, I had a pair of Scythe Ultra Kaze 3K's on my TRUE...

I'd think the H60 would eliminate many incorrect installations?
Someone give me a straight out answer please?

H-60 Has a new micro-channel cold plate and a split-flow designed manifold, the H60 also features an all-new fan, custom designed to offer enhanced static pressure, which means better cooling.

H70 Has A low profile pump and improved cold plate allow for even easier mounting. A higher-performance radiator that comes with twin high-performance 120mm fans, optimized for a push-pull configuration.
