Yea, i want to know if these are much better than air cooler? i have the Xig Dark Knight s1283v, anyone know how these compare?
Thirded. I am about to build a i5 2500k rig next week hopefully and was going to go with the cheap and popular CM 212+ air cooler but I am considering this instead. H50 put me off because it is loud but this H60 is supposed to be a lot quieter and work better.
I plan on keeping a 24/7 OC of around 4.5 ghz (hopefully) so I do not need anything crazy.
Going with the new Corsair 600T white case and 850HX PSU so this H60 would keep with theme.
Edit: After checking some reviews out I am definitely going with this H60 instead of the CM 212+ air cooler. Installation looks a lot easier and great thermal paste is already preapplied so I will not have to worry about botching the installation like I was with CM 212+. I never installed a direct heatpipe cooler with ridges on the bottom so I was not 100% sure on how to put the thermal paste on as I usually just do a small pea sized dab in the middle of the CPU but that is not what you are supposed to do on the 212+.

This thing performs about on par with high end air cooling. Any heatpipe direct touch cooler will perform comparably with this thing. It is not as good as a custom built watercooling system and has a potential for leaks that high end air cooling doesn't, so if you have good air cooling already, stick with it.
