    it "should" be able to do it though, they use 15-180w each, thats 450-540w in total, and then 125 from cpu, thats 675 max, and a little extra, then youre at 700w :laugh:

    Only got 4x 6pin + 1x 8pin.

    I don't like the scaling though, i'd rather just stick with two and be damn happy :D

    you can buy the nzxt ones, but......yeah........they look good and thats about it

    they use black wires under the black sleeving, red wires under the red sleeving, and white wires under the white sleeving, so they dont have to use suchs good quality sleeving

    and besides, its a challenge to do it yourself

    i will NOT do another psu again, will get extensions next time

    Running at 35 and under load 49 but the 200mm side fan helps a hell of a lot and thanx for the comment mate. Being dreading building this but it went with no hiccups.

    why were you dreading the build? I think you did a great job, looks very clean and tidy.

    the only thing I wouldhave done different is look into a mATX case, as you have lots of empty space now, however that makes for good airflow allowance.

    :toast: to a job well done

    Not great. Quieter than my venom push pull for the same perf. Absolutely nothing can keep my i7 cool at this speed it seems. The H50 fails, all idle at the same temp. My fan arrangement for the H50/70 is one high speed on exhaust. Dual fans makes it loud enough to defeat the point of water, intake is a moronic heat dump that's not even an option. Most reviewers didn't even test it. While I've seen these things stay stable at 102c it really bugs me seeing mine up to 95c, even if it is stable. Yes I've tried all sorts of crazy case fan stuff to make sure it isn't from bad ambient or dead air flow, it's not. Re-seating always brings the same temps. All I can figure is it's my chip. Looking around I've seen a lot of people topping out in the 80s, but I see a few always in the 90s. I guess I'm one of those few.

    The H70 is designed to pull fresh air in from outside, thats how they keep temps lower;) Looks like you have it set to pull case air out and exhaust it.

    Mine is cooler working as an intake (7* cooler than as an exhaust), maybe its the fans you swapped for causing the lack of performance?

    Also why would reviewers test with a single fan, the H70 is designed to use 2?

    Naturally it's cooler working as an intake, and I said that in reference to the the exhaust position, not the fan arrangement.

    So, I dont get your stance, you butchered the cooler and didnt install it as per the instructions, and you want to complain about its performance? Or you like it, it just doesnt work as you want it to?
