Default Upgrade from ZALMAN CNPS10X Performa cooler to Corsair Hydro H70 cooler completed

Cooler upgrade completed. I waited 20mins after install of the H70 to do a stress test, I have the fans all set to exhaust out of the case. I do see an improvement in the cpu temperatures over my Zalman cooler by 5c ... However that result is still not all that fair considering the outside temperature when I did my run on the Zalman was 16c, when I did the h70 test it was 23c, and I have the window always wide open. I will be upgrading to high speed yate loons for all case fans and the h70 fans as well... Will update when they arrive.

Great information. How fast the fans on radiator?

I'm only using the stock fans on in exhaust now, Zalman rates them @ 61cfm. Besides those I'm only using generic led fans in my case, Apevia 120mm @ 58cfms (supposedly) as a top blow hole, and as an intake, and they cannot be doing anything close to what they are rated at lucky if they put out half as much as the stock Zalman fans ... So When I get my new Yate-Loon 88cfms to replace all of my existing fans I will post the benchmark results. BTW the zalmans are a bit loud but nothing near as bad as what I read in the reviews.

61cfm is about 1500rpm for standard 25mm fan.... so as I see it approximate difference between custom setup and H70 is about 12-15c at cores.
