Default Corsair H50 Self-Contained Liquid CPU Cooler

It has been a little while since Corsair last released a CPU cooler, so they're hoping to successfully win everyone over with their all-in-one H50. Based on Asetek solutions, Corsair spent many months tweaking the H50 before they considered it complete, so let's find out if their hard work paid off in the end.

You can read Bill's full review of Corsair's latest cooler here and discuss it here!

Where do you see 15°C difference? While I believe this would beat CoolIT's Domino, it wouldn't have a chance against their higher-end products, but those of course cost a lot more.

I'm jealous of the temps Bill reaches in his basement ;-) I can only dream of that here.

To be honest, I am not sure if HTML is set to work for regular users, but to create a degree sign, the code is:

& deg ;

Don't space them out... I just had to here because it would have become a degree sign.

LOL!!!

No, we don't all live in Igloos in Canada. You have to go pretty far north this time of year to see any cold weather. Where I am is in southern Ontario. I would say my relative position is about the same latitude as Detroit, Michigan. We have a normal hot summer and cold winter.

My ambient temps are rock solid due to the fact my house has a gigantic basement and I have it finished for living space. The concrete foundation is quite thick and it acts like a geothermal heat pump keeping the temperatures in my basement between 65F and 70F year round and normally it is spot on 68F.
