Yeah, generally I'd avoid any single rad kit. The don't seem to offer much (if any) benefit over high(er) end air cooling, and kits like this one are a pain to upgrade.

I have had reasonably good results on a CPU-only loop with the swiftech kit once I paired it up with a 220 QP-Res so that would be my suggestion if somebody was sold on getting a kit.

I'm not as hard on kits as some folks would be. I started on a kit myself (TT bigwater 745), but at the very least I like to suggest that it be a "kit" rather than a sealed unit like this one.

It seems like temps are where they supposed to be with single thin radiator type. Looks are largely uninspiring especially on Classified mobo, looks like self-made spoiler bolted to the Porshe.

Is there any one have found a review of this or even made a review? The more I have found is that it's really silent ( cool for my PC but is this working good? )

Thx

I believe AkG has hinted at an upcoming review of the cooler - but I havn't found anything online, aside from FtGF's findings

[H] Enthusiast --- hardocp.com has a preview video but something definitely was done wrong since they had their chip going into thermal shutdown with a lot less voltage then I tested it with. So take that with a huge grain of salt since I had way lower temps in a room with no A/C. It is really quiet and it performs practically the same as a TRUE in a push-pull config at least for me. With some good fans and in a push-pull setup (I can't because of my case) I'm sure it would be decent.

Default H50 pics

There are some, hope you'll enjoy it. Sorry if there is no more of better pic I just take few minut before getting to work today :( pouah...work on sunday ) If you ask me I will take more time tonight to unplug the computer and take some better one. This is also the best place I found to place it because in the rear, I was thinking it stupid to take the hot air of the video card to cold my rad, in fact I get 4 to 6 degree lower in this position.
