My System Specs

Got my eco today and put it in. Using the stock fan and letting the bios manage the fan speed it seems to do a decent job. At stock CPU speeds my temps are about equal or slightly less than my Ven II (which was using a noctua fan). Under full load (Prime95) temps were a couple degrees lower as well. The fan speed was about 800 RPMs when idle and was no louder than a noctua but when under load the fan speed went up to 1500 rpms and was audible over my other fans.

I'll try and give a bit bigger review in a bit, stay tuned!

Well, I know I like my H50. I have it set to run at 30% speed until it hits 34 then it goes to 90%.

This gives me about 29 on idle and then about 36 on load. All of that is with my Q6600 OC'd to 3.6GHz

I have the H50 as well, in the default config with one fan it keeps my i7 OC'd to 3.6 around 32-36 on idle and around 50-55 when taxed. I had trouble deciding which one to get at first and I couldn't find a review comparing them (strangely). I went with the H50 because its been around the longest and had overall positive reviews.

Default Head to Head review of the CoolIT ECO and the Corsair H50

A Head to Head review of the CoolIT ECO and the Corsair H50.
Nice job by HardwareHeaven.com
Fairly evenly matched but the H50 beats the ECO slightly when cooling at 4ghz OC as well as being a bit quieter.
(Glad I got the H50 after all - still $62 at BD btw)

Has anyone had any problems with their H50 system? Specifically some weird noises from the pump unit?

The pump on the H50 is louder than the fan according to silentpcreview and a few guys on their forums.

Is it a gurgling or whooshing sound? I find in a lot of these pre-built, pre-filled units that after a little bit of time some air works its way free and ends up in the pump. THAT increases the noise output of the unit by a good bit....and unlike a custom loop you cant burp it to get it out either.

Guuulurp! Not looking forward to that. The H50 is nice and quiet right now, but, time will tell.

Don't get me wrong it doesn't happen to ALL of them....BUT sometimes the filling stage gets rushed and /or QA dept isn't totally on the ball (in other words its a classic "Friday" or "Monday" build) and not all the air pockets gets flushed out before it gets sealed. Thats the downside to a sealed unit....what you get is what you get. ;)

Can you RMA for that if that does end up happening to the unit? What is the warranty like on the H50 anyways??? ...
