uh, if your H50 is making a buzzing sound - either you installed it incorrectly or have a defective unit. I have 3x H50s and they don't make buzzing noises. My wifes PC has dual Noctua P12's on an H50 and is absolutely silent beside her desk.
I can't wait to read the performance evaluation.

Like any sealed wc unit...you can get a bad one. I know I had one that was loud because it was not properly "burped" before sealing and had air in the lines.
IF your pump is buzzing its either a bad pump or air. In either case...RMA it!

Smile Corsair Hydro H70

i think the new Hydro H70 will be great with the new and optimized coolant flow design, improved copper CPU base,denser radiator and others...but we i'll have to wait and see whether it meets the claims and gets more popular than the H50.. it think it will..what do u think?

You won't have to wait long. $97.65 at DirectCanada.
I have to agree that the H50 is really quiet and only slightly cooler than my 212+ w push/pull (Therefore less bang/buck). But you usually pay a greater amount proportionally for better/quieter cooling.
Still, I can't wait for the H70 reviews as I'd still like cooler temps. Maybe it will be worth it.

I have to say I like the look of the H70 but we will have to wait to see how it performs and if it's worth to upgrade or if it's worth the extra money over the H50.

A slightly incomplete review at MaxPC.
Need more and better reviews.

I certainly like my H50 and I don't see any reason not to like the H70. The H50 does a good job of cooling my CPU and it's relatively quite.

They have some in-house test results posted a few days ago. Shows a 13.3F degree improvement over the H50.

That'd be a 13C degree improvement. I wasn't expecting that much, but they also installed them as intakes for testing since it's what they recommend. Probably still going to be pretty good as exhausts which (I'd guess) most people install it as.
