    Yeah i was looking at the H70 aswell, bit more pricey but is apparently alot colder then the H50.
    Yes that is in celcius.
    From what i read, the i7 runs fine at 80-90 but i would like to get it down a bit lower, you would recommend the H70 FlawlessSoul?

    If i ever have a chance to fly to France, i will do so with my only intention being to find you Boub and give you a hug for being so awesome ^_^ <3

    According to Intel, the tCase maximum of the i7 870 is 72.7*C. This equates to roughly a core temp of 82-84*C (core is usually about 10*C higher than tCase).

    [edit: The i7 930/950 is rated lower at a tCase of 67.9*C, as is the i7 980x. I'm not seeing where an i7 should be handling 90*C.]

    Very cheap and does a great job for its price.

    The H70 is pretty good for the price but the fans it comes with can be a bit noisy. I'd recommend going for a proper watercooling setup (as I am next week) if you're going to overclock extensively.
