    I'm not sure if this is an issue or not with them being sealed units but the in/out on the top of the rad/fan unit is at the top, I would of thought you'd want it at the bottom incase the systems not completely full?

    Thats how my H50's fitted anyways...

    It shouldn't matter as the pump will push fluid from the block to the rad. As long as there is adequate fluid to keep the pump primed it'll be fine.

    I see no reason why it couldn't be mounted with the ports at the bottom.... Is there one?

    Nice review. Looks like a decent bit of kit.

    The combination of two fans and the radiator do make that one bulky unit sticking on the inside of your case - personally looks horrible.

    Same arguments also apply to what was discussed recently over in the Corsair H80, H100 story. Its alot of money to spend on a CPU only cooler that doesn't perform any better than a good air cooler and isn't even silent.

    Its interesting the price creep from the H50 @ £50 to the 920 @ £80, which is a significant premimum,

    I await a possible H100 review with interest.. the dual rad should lower noise and temperatures

    Interesting review.

    I must say I was always tempted by these, but ended up with the megahalems, and I'm so glad I did! Even after all these years it's been out, it still ranks up there in performance/price/noise.

    Nice review. I chuckled slightly when in the overview the review said noise would be checked and in the actual noise section the measuring device wasn't available.

    I quite liked the look of that software Antec bundles. Being able to change the colour of the LEDs is cool!
