Yeah, If you do the pea drop thing, just let the heatsink spread it.

Now as I said I recently looked at the Corsair H50 and so comparisons of the two units are inevitable. In all the testing the H50 and the ECO put up very similar cooling numbers. Considering how close the two designs are this was to be expected. The difference for me was the mounting system. The ECO makes use of the existing back plate on AMD systems and uses a custom backplate for Intel. While the Corsair was a two step process to install the ECO was much simpler with 4 thumb screws being all that is needed to mount the cooler.

CONCLUSION AS OF MAY 11, 2010:
Both coolers are doing their job. It seems that CoolIt have a small uphill battle due to some past issues. Corsair has a great rep for being second to none in their customer service. Both either have or will have issues at some point. That’s the nature of the beast AKA “the law of large numbers” you do enough of anything and you’re bound to have a few issues here and there.

I think this will end up being a Ford vs. Chevy thing eventually. So at this point I will have to say it is a matter of personal preference.

These statements says it all considering they put up similar numbers. With that said, it's really going to come down to price.

Thanks for that info Sygnus. Honestly, I really had not even looked for any reviews... yet... odd as that may seem! I saw in passing one day and saw the radiator and immediately thought: Larger radiator = better cooling. Oh well. The H70 should be out soon anyway.

Again, thanks for that info.

I see the Corsair H70 is up and on their site. It looks killer except for it only comes with dual Corsair fans so toss them and order up two premium fans and your off to the OC races ! I just installed my first water system H50 and it is performing very well and it's in a dual push pull configuration with it drawing fresh air from the top of my case and exhausting over my ram ! Working like a dream !

No problem. I was curious myself, even though I don't do water cooling.

Thanks.

sygnus21,
Yeah believe me I was very skeptical at first until I read all the info and reviews and said what the hell. I love the way it opens up the case! What truly blows my mind are the monster six fan set up's that cool every chip in your case even your single and dual sli set up's. I marvel at the hardware but water and electricity dance an odd dance and your right it is always a risk!

Since my overclocks are modest I have no need for water cooling... and no need to worry about leaks.

That's me though

Peace

I'm in the same boat...in fact with my overclock on my Q9550 (2.83 to 3.2)...I just stayed with the stock Intel cooler. Works like a treat.

Yeah my old case temps largely due to extremely high ambient temps due to where I live and the room I'm in which can easily reach 90+ degrees. This forced me into a huge Zalman fan at first and when that was still producing high temps I went with a new case and the H50 (wish the H70 had been an option). I think if I was closer to the beach or the insulation was better to hold the summer heat down than the Zalman would have been all I would have need with a larger case being the icing on the cake.

I have the H50 and like the H70 but I've also been looking at this cooler Ultra ChillTEC 939/AM2/AM3/775/1366 Thermal Electric Overclocking CPU Cooler With Controller at TigerDirect.com I've yet to take a look at a lot of reviews or comparisons but It's in the same price range without the risk of leakage.
It's a pretty cool technology (no pun intended) And would make for a cleaner looking case for those of us with pparks1's quirks. Nice photo super clean! Fabe

the fabe, I was interested in this as well and I have a ton of Ultra products and they mostly perform well and are a good value. I was swayed by calling tech support for my mobo and they are all Zalman men..lol. So I tried it. I researched the Peltier Cooler technology and was very interested but the reviews are mixed as is normal. Most complaints are for size and fan quality which for me isn't a major issue as we should have figured the size before hand and fans are fans. Like hard drives there are only two types of fans those that have stopped and those about to stop ...lol. Going with the H50 and or water was a big risk in my mind but one ultimately I'm glad I took. I think the performance of the H50 and the Ultra are going to be on par with the larger H70 taking the performance edge and second only to the huge multi core custom water rigs for the truly possesed !
