    Real World Performance is looking at 10c+ Drops vs H50 on i7's with 1.32-1.31 volts.
    Predict Bigger Performance Gap if you install custom 120mm High static 2000+rpm fans.

    ^^^ Unboxing^^^
    [​IMG]

    *Dual thickness rad- with denser fin array.
    *Dual Fans included Details:1600rpm-2000rpm 32dba rating. FANS WILL BE SPEED SWITCHABLE! (same fans used on the A70 Air cooler)
    *Redesigned pump is smaller- They say its more efficient(Will update if true)
    *2 year warranty upon purchase.
    *includes all mounting brackets for all sockets this time.
    *Seems to Use Same Mounting system so its just pop in a play for H50 Users! verified- PLUG AND PLAY!
    *TIM Isn't the best- Wipe it off and put some AS5 or MX3 on the block for best performance.
    *Swivel On tubes on the CPU/pump Blocks- Easy Installation and no scare of snapping tubes.
    *To lower fan speeds- there are 2 3pin M to 3pin F - 2" long adapters with a resistor soldered to lower fan speeds to 1600rpm.

    Lets see some H70 reviews and prices up people!!!! Going to buy once I can find a e-tailer stocking em for sale.

    That is a metric AssLoad of TIM!:eek:

    Looks like the first thing anyone should do when they get one of these is clean that mess off and use an appropiate amount of TIM.

    For $115 bucks you can build your own loop out of cheaper W/C parts that would perform better. I'm on the fence with this thing.

    I would think that half of the extra performance over the H50 is the 2nd fan.

    So its safe to assume that with this design we now need to find 3, 3-pin headers, or convert them all the 12V....terrific, as if I didn't have enough wires already.:rolleyes:

    "Asus Rampage III Extreme
    Core i7 920 @ 3.8 GHz (20 x 190 MHz, 1.34Vcore)
    Corsair Obsidian 800D case
    All inside a temperature controlled oven with an ambient temp of 25C.

    At 100% load using Super Pi 64-bit to stress the CPU, the H50 reached an average of 85C after 4 hours of testing, and the H70 was 71.7C after 4 hours of testing. In comparison, the vast majority of high-end aircoolers were around the H50 levels, save for a few gigantic aircoolers which approached H70 performance......"

    No idea. I wouldn't call the H50 shit though, it worked great on my Athon II X4, but that was a rather cool chip. The best thing about it is that it's simple and compact and is great for when you don't have enough room for a larger air heatsink.

    I dunno about that...does just as well as my TRUE(considering using the same fan), with less noise(as it doesn't need as much fan as the TRUE).

    It's not luck. As someone who has fixed various types of pumps (industrial, residential, PC), the H50 pump is not very good at all. I'm really interested to see the H70 pump internals as even though it appears smaller, it could very well be much better.
