H70 Water Cooling Kit by Corsair Reviewed

Recommended Posts

The Noctua may have won, but you need to think about the H70 a little bit more. You're guaranteed to not block any memory slots with it. Personally I'm gonna pick one up asap. Great review as always ccokeman! :)

still no review with the H70 vs the H50 with dual fan set up , a little dissapointing. i am sure thats what everyone was waiting to see.

Thanks! I've been waiting to see a good review of the H70. I was pretty impressed by it, I'll have to pick one up soon.

 

Like k1e1v1i1n said, I too would like to see a review of the H70 and H50 using the same fans and fan setup to see see how they compare.

i think thats the question on everyones mind who will be reading this is it worth the upgrade? it is a good review except that the main piece of info most will be looking for is missing. maybe corsair dosent want that question answered?

The H70 is basically a H50 in Push/Pull with a slightly thicker rad. Not worth the price if you ask me.

Thats at idle.......

 

Look at the load difference @ Stock 5 and 6 degrees overclocked thats a lot different then 1 degree sitting at idle..... you and Scott must have been half asleep when you read the review :lol:

I found this on newegg, I don't know how accurate it is, but it should answer your questions about a comparison with the H50 with dual fans.

 

Other Thoughts: Here are my results from the H50 vs the H70. The better numbers are the H70 ofcourse. I ran Intel Burn in for 10 minutes set at max with each setup using Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1800RPM fans

Let's hope they don't try to pull a BFG on RMA's or rebates

 

I am sure ccokeman wouldn't mind throwing an extra fan on the H50 to see if there is much of a difference. That way we will know for sure. :)
