Default 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?

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

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.
