Coolermaster V8 vs. Corsair H50?

I can afford both of them but I would prefer the V8 since it's cheaper and has $10 rebate but if the H50 will keep my CPU cooler than I'm all up for spending the premium amount. Also, I'll be using a Phenom 955 overclocked to 4.0GHz! Thanks in advance!

  1. I wouldn't get either of those units.

    Out of stock at newegg but can be found else where and if you live near MicroCenter its cheaper and I know they carry it.

    These coolers are much better then the V8 and the H50 both of those are way overpriced and do not give the best cooling.

  2. Well, the Prolimatech Megahalems cooler does not come with AM3 brackets... the Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme does but from reading the reviews, people have been commenting on how large it is and how much it weighs and sometimes I see reviews of people actually getting better cooling with the stock cooler! Whats up with that?
  3. Yep i have to agree both are crap!

  4. Or the Coolermaster Hyper 212+

    It's a favourite budget cooler around here.

  6. i was in best buy the other day and saw corsair A50 and a70

    http://www.corsair.com/products/a70/default.aspx

    the a50 looks like a re-badged CM cooler but they go for $50 & $80, way over priced and i have never seen a single review for either one.

    Yeah, It is but its too damn big for my GD-70 790FX motherboard! It will use up the 1st and possiblely 2nd RAM slots. Besides it's color scheme isn't my fav.
  8. I like the h50 a lot of people don't seem to like it, but its beaten all the big hunks of metal i've used before
  9. Most people wouldn't think about simply adding a second fan to the h50. They would rather pay 300 for a custom build and get the same results
  10. yeah i'm using a push/pull config
  11. You guys are posting pretty horrible products..

    This is the best of the best air cooling, none other can beat this besides superior water cooling........ it can use 2 120's and 1 140 in the middle.........It is huge though
