    Should have been tested against the H80.

    But going by H60 numbers and this, it looks like the improvement against the H80 is small and not worth a change, if anything it seems like a downgrade.

    The H80 offers pretty good cooling for my I7. Never going higher than 45c on 100% load.

    ¿Even with Linkpack (Linx, IntelBurnTest) o Prime95? That's hard to believe. Note you have to look at core temps, not the CPU temp reported by the mobo.

    It seems I was wrong. Idles at around 27C, 100% load goes up to a max of 54C.

    Are you like outside in the Arctic or something? Even with a direct die mount and a H100 the lowest temp I've ever seen is 55.6c and the idle was 35.9 -- that's with a 25c ambient temp.

    Edit: I'm also pretty confident that I own the worst 3770K ever made. I can't get under 1.32v @ 4.6 and have it stable. And even after I delidded and used noctua my lowest temp is like 78c, prior to delidding it was over 95 sometimes.

    I do have a Haff 922 case with 7 fans running, 5 being case fans. MB temp is 22C.

    It's literally impossible to believe that he would have an i7 3770k at 45C under full load with even custom water cooling and delidding.

    I don't even believe the 54C figure.

    In that picture, it looks to me like you've just started Prime95, on test 2, and your temperatures have already hit 57 as a maximum.

    Give us an idea of your ambient. I would think you'd need sub-15 to hit this temperature. You definitely do have an H50, right, not something else? You're sure?

    Erm...I meant H80...sorry.

    I'll run Prime95 overnight and see what the temps hit, but it shouldn't be that much higher.

    CPU is also underclocked (Speedstep) to 1.6GHz when the CPU is idle, seems to work ok.

    Can't even beat a Kraken X40?
    A rather moot product, the H90 is.

    But its quieter compared to Kraken at extreme fan profile..

    I think i'll be getting this H90 then, i was looking at ThermalTake Water 2.0 Pro, but this H90 looks more appealing. The only bad thing is you can't mount 2 fans, it doesnt include extended fan holder or does it?

    The X40 beat it with Silent profile in the 4600 MHz 1.3 Volts LOAD test.

    by 1C, that's a lot ;)


    Hilbert could you please review TT Water 2.0 Pro too or is this to old? I see it was released mid 2012.
