    I'm currently running a h50 with push pull fans, but I'm thinking of going back to my coolermaster v8. I hated the coolit aio. Noisy and crap temps compared to my old zalman 9700.

    Go with the h50.

    the h50 is a decent cooler but you should only use it if you can not fit the more conventional tower type coolers such as a true, megahelam, etc
    from what i have read the higher and high end tower type coolers cool better than the alc or h50.

    i have an h50 in a pnp config and im frankly kind of disapointed with the performace...but it was the only thing i could fit on my MB due to a high stock NB heatsink.

    H50. I'm pretty happy with mine, it's dropped temps ~12c from the Xigmatek cooler I had, all while being silent.

    I have a CoolIT ECO. There is no difference between it and the Vantage in terms of performance. Both the H50 and ECO perform near the same, and both are good. The H50 is louder and has more heat dump, but the radiator is a little more robust. The ECO deals with the less robust radiator by having a 1W heat dump pump that makes almost no noise.

    I've installed the CoolIt ECO A.L.C. 120mm this week, went from a ThermalTake Big Typhoon VX with socket 1366 adapter. I must say at first, the CoolIt water cooling system performs a little less than my TT Big Typhoon, but much less noise I have to deal with. I've read many reviews that claim that if you use 2 120mm fans in a push/pull configuration, you basically cut 5 to 8 degrees from you LOAD temps off the bat. That is one of the elements that made me buy the CoolIt. Also, the reason I didn't buy the Corsair H50 is because in a push/pull config, the CoolIt performs better than the Corsair (from a couple of reviews I read). That basically says the CoolIt system is a little more efficient I suppose. Of course the Corsair owners will aim to disagree, but heck I just go with the reviews. Oh, and the Coolit is cooling an overclocked i7 920 C0. CoolIt will release (if not already) a 240mm radiator version of the ECO A.L.C.... Too bad for all that bought the 120mm version (like me).

    One of the few problems I encountered with the ECO, was excessive motherboard temps, caused by the lack of airflow over the Northbridge. Some motherboards have the Video card sitting almost on top of the Northbridge heat sink. There's just not very much room to get air in between the NB and the Video card. I've accidentally discovered a cure for that problem.

    I laid out all the fans I own and decided to see what I could do to help the problem. I found that the 70mm fan from an aluminum block AMD cooler will slip snugly between the lower pump housing and the plastic thumb screws. It blows air right at the back side of the video card and cools the Northbridge quite well. I also removed the blue Gigabyte caps from the heat sink, which improved the cooling even more Temps that were in the high 40s to low 50s are now in the mid 30s. This pic was taken with a webcam, which was not quite able to focus down to about a little over a foot, but you can still get the general idea.

    [​IMG]

    Even at 3200 rpm, the fan is almost silent, and moves a lot of air. Just be sure to put it in open side up and frame side down. It fits snug enough that you really don't have to do anything to hold it in place, but I've added a long zip tie that goes under the metal mount bracket and around the fan to assure that it won't fall out. It doesn't look elegant, but it does work quite well.

    Best Regards,
    Russ
