H70 or ECO?
Wondering which would be better, the Corsair H70 of the Coolit Eco?

I personally like the Eco over the H50/70.

I've put both into a case and the Eco was way nicer.

thanks for the input, but are you refering to esthetics or performance?

enaberif January 23, 2011 04:33 PM

They are gonna perform pretty close to the same and I mean in the sense of installation I found the ECO easier.

In apples to apples a H70 will be perform slightly better than an eco (1-3 degrees in all likelihood and depending on fans used and fan configs). In ease of installation...the ECO blows the Corsairs away. I too prefer the Eco. YMMV

another vote for the eco. a blind man after a 6 pack could install one.

the cooling performance difference shouldn't bother you,much.

unless you're shooting for sky high clocks, but then you'd be looking at the wrong coolers ;)

The rotating fittings on the CPU block of the ECO is a very nice touch compared to the H50/70

thanks a bunch guys, the ECO is on sale to boot! It's just nice to hear from knowledgeable people with hands on experience..

H70 or ECO
mchutch...if you haven't already purchased the ECO; I have one gathering dust in my closet that is free for the asking (you just have to pay for the shipping).
I got it through an RMA with CoolIt Systems directly (CoolIt Domino block leak) as I'm in Calgary-where they are located...I (personally) find that I get better temps with air.

Shoot me a PM if you (or anyone else) are interested, pics are available, as well as RMA/ sales documentation.

thanks anyway BMAN that was a nice offer, but already got it, 2 days! really love that NCIX has wharehouses in Ontario lol

I'm about the same temps but like how much more open the case looks..
