I'm quite curious as to how this sucker performs. I've been meaning to get into water for a while now but I caved and bought a lancool pc-k62 and it isn't exactly water friendly. If this thing can shave off a couple degrees off of my I7 920 @3.8 (current HS is a CM 212), i'd be seriously hard pressed to not buy it. Can't wait to see some benchmarks!

I'd like to see the benchmarks to, it may replace the H50 I'm using.

From my experience, these things kinda suck in terms of bang for the buck. I regret ever buying my h50 and whatnot. My Hyper 212 performs almost as good and costs a fraction of the amount. It's also easier to clean, because the fins aren't as fragile as the radiator fins.

H50 should technically be quieter than the Hyper 212 which makes it worth the money.

And for cleaning the radiator.. compressed air and tap water.. anything else and your wasting time.

I'm looking forward to the reviews of this unit. My Hyper 212+ is a great cooler, but if this unit proves to do a similar job, at a fraction of the noise, I think I'll be in the line to buy.

And a fraction of the size.

Actually, these water cooling units are louder, because the pump emits a buzzing sound. My fans are also changed to Noctuas, and the Hyper 212 can run passive. In no way does it justify costing 4x more.
