    Default Noctua NH-U12P vs Corsair H50

    Okay as the title says.. My Specs are in the left hand side, But what i'm trying to figure out is which one would be better off for cooling, And keeping things cooler.

    I don't like water because of issues of leaks etc. Just gunshy i guess? Plus i do move my computer around from time to time and it's harder to do with a full on WC Kit.

    But this one from Corsair seems pretty easy and good cooling, I've done searches on the net about this and all the results i get are with the i7 Chips. Well i'm still running a Core 2 Quad 9650 (3.0ghz @ 3.6ghz) yeah small o'c.

    Now my tower is changing from what it shows on there because of my previous post in here week ago can be found Here It's going to the Corsair Obsidian 800D.

    Not sure if the case changes will make that much of a difference on how it cools, So thats why i letting you all know here. But if someone can let me know please on which one is better out of the 2, for stock, o'c, idle, load temps. I just want the best cooling i can out of my PC. Esp with summer right around the corner, Living in Arizona with a Swamp Cooler gets lil rough at times lol.

    If have any questions for me to answer just ask away, I'll try to answer the best i can. Thank You Guys.

    First of all i would like to say that the Corsair Obsidian is a great case (in my opinion the best case out there).Second i am using the H50 on a i7 950 running at 4ghz and it cools very descently i am having 77'c at full load max.Tried 4.2 but temp went to 87'c.I really dont know much about the noctua i only state my experience from the H50 which i am very pleased from the performance.There are also some stand alone wc systems from Coolit.

    Personally, I don't have any experience with the Noctua cooler, but I'm using the H50 to cool my i7 920. With a big case like the Obsidian, you won't have a lot of problems with the airflow, so the H50 would be a good choice in that manner. Also, the H50 is relatively inexpensive considering the performance, so it's a definite recommendation from me. I can't say much about the Noctua cooler as I haven't tried it myself, but I'd still go for the H50.

    Okay i have the Noctua i stated in here, It runs very nicely for temps. But with going to a new case and saw this new WC setup thats real simple And not going to cost me an arm and leg. Just trying to figure out if it's better then what the Noctua can do or not.

    From looking at the links. the load temps seem abotu what i seen for results with the Corsair. but it's lower with the corsair while idle. So shrugs still scratching head.

    The Noctua NH-D14 might give you like 3-4'c temperature decrease but its a bit expensive imo for aircooling.H50 is well prised and will also look good to your Corsair Obsidian.I cant tell you the difference between your cooler and the H50 but i can tell you that you wont have any temp problems whatsoever except you go extreme oc when custom wc is the only way.

    Exclamation H50

    I own the H50, and I love it. My cpu is at very high volts and it cools it extremely well. I will warn though, the installation guide is flawed. Screwing the water block into place smears the paste and will cause improper contact.

    If you fallow the default steps for installing this cooler, you will get average results.

    Use my method, and you'll get amazing results. I have a little guide HERE.
