Corsair H50 or H60

Not a rabid OC'er but mainly looking to quieten down my system and have been eyeing up the Corsair h50
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181010

Currently the h60
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181015

is cheaper.

They seem very similar - h50 has the pump separate from the radiator and a shorter (2 year) warranty as opposed to the h60.

The h50 reviews seem more positive, however, so I was wondering if the experts here knew of any immediate reasons not to by the h60 over the h50.

Thanks in advance.

Pete

    H50 < H60 < H70 < H80 < H100

    I personally wouldn't use any of them- I'd choose a good air cooler for less cost and very similar performance. However, if you wanted to go this route, I'd say choose H60 or higher. H50's were the original model design and the least reliable and worst performing of all listed above.
  2. Pete: Just installed the H60 system on an AMD 970 mb with a 965 OC to 3800. Very impressed with the easy of installation and how well it cools when running flat out.
  3. The H60 is the best choice of the 2 and especially so if it is cheaper right now.
  4. I'd get a Hyper 212. They are very efficient and the included CM fan is very quiet. Plus they are only around 30$
  5. With very similar performance as a Corsair H-series.

    I have now replaced the 965 with an 1100T OC to 3800. The H60 Corsair keeps the 6 core cool with 34C Idle for the overall CPU package (cores show 24 C each at idle) and a load CPU temp of 56C (cores 43) running Prime 95. The temps are even lower now that I added a 2nd 120 mm fan to create a push/pull system 21C idle 39C max
  7. Thanks ... I went with a Xigmatek Gaia SD1283 - a big beast and yet very cheap from Newegg.
    Dropped my temps from 40c (idle) / 65c (load) to 30c (idle) / 55c (load) and lovely and quiet!
    Thanks for all the input!
