Would like to see it compared against H50 with the Eco blowing fresh air into the case. I suspect that would more than make up for the 2C advantage the H50 enjoyed.

Nice review overall, but the H50 is still the winner IMO.

I've love to take the plunge into water cooling but i don't want to drown while trying to inflate my rig.

Also, another quality review

4-5L/min is good start for standard WC pump with several components in the loop.

Nice review, and nice to see the coolers tested in a closed system. Is the going to be standard for future reviews?
