My System Specs

Default H50 vs Coolit Systems Eco

Just wondering if anybody has any numbers on the Coolit Systems Eco and how it compares to the H50. Probably won't switch unless the numbers are drastic which I doubt. Anybody have have any experience or thoughts on this? Looks like it is a new device from Coolit so replies might be scarce!! Well?

I read a couple of ECO reviews but both were at stock CPU speeds. Then I read this thread at Overclocker.uk which starts out with the ECO beating the H50 by a bit, but things get a little, hmmm uncertain later in the thread.
I went ahead and ordered the Corsair H50 for myself and hope to find time to install it this weekend. I have some faith in the H50 as it's been around; Also noted that ECO may be a bit louder - 1800rpm max fan which also pushed me more towards the H50. just my opinion
P.s. I ordered my H50 ($62.32 PM accepted) from MemoryExpress w free shipping: Source; PM'd the H50 from BestDirect.

It is pretty much a clone of the H50.

clone usually means crappy performance, but in the one review that i looked more into its a proper cooler.

I wouldnt call it a clone. It may have an integrated pump/res/block...but thats not exactly a new idea. The H50 is just a tweaked clone of the Asetek LCLC. This one looks more promising as it doesn't blow the hot air INTO you case in default config and looks to have a bigger all in one block (though thats just a guess based off the pics). IMHO it just looks like CoolIT's take on the whole "low cost liquid cooling" market niche and since CoolIT does know how to make kick arse kit, it may just surprise in its abilities.

Ya just saw it in the sale last night at NCIX, so was wondering what people thought about it or if anyone has used it and CoolIt does have a good reputation for prebuilt water coolers. Monster, those review links you posted don't work, for me at least... But I just googled for the tweaktown review and ya they don't really say what kind of system or clocks they test it on, unless I'm missing something? Can't check out the overclockers forum link either since it's blocked here at work (don't worry I'm on break ;) ) But ya, by those numbers in the graph it seems to be on par with the H50 which isn't much of a surprise I guess. Good price on it too though so it would be interesting to see which one people would choose when looking for a prebuilt, maintenance free watercooler. I guess whichever is cheaper?

With all other things being equal (or at least appearing to be equal).....I pick the Canadian company. Corsair is a GREAT company to do business with, but CoolIT is in my opinion the Gold Standard. Really are THAT good of a company to do business with. YMMV :)

I bought one when it was on sale and it is on it's way. I was running a Swiftech apogee block/pump with a thermochill 120.1 rad up until recently. When I get this I am going to try it out at stock speeds first and then overclocked. I will also most likely use my Noctua fan instead of the stock fan and I could even try a push/pull with two noctuas. I will let you guys know how it does.
