    It would not let me register until I put something in that field... so I made something up.

    Also, I found the note regarding the odd NH-D14 result in the test methodology section (pardon me for skimming through a review):
    users should note that Noctua's gargantuan NH-D14 is simply too big to implement horizontally in our Obsidian Series 800D chassis and had to be used with its fans facing upward. As a result, one of its two fans is in close proximity to the GPU and with no top exhaust in our chassis, it delivers sub-optimal results.
    From what I understand it was actually due to RAM clearance. Why didn't you just use a different set of ram or even remove the heatsink from the ram you were using. The result you're providing for the NH-D14 is meaningless and shouldn't even be published until it's fixed.

    No idea then, I just tried it and it was fine.

    Agree about the Noctua... I think that's a fair criticism for the product in its own review but I'm not sure much is gained by using it for future comparisons where that limitation is far from obvious.

    The real benefit of all in one water cooling is that it also cools your GPU! By exhausting all the heat from your CPU out Of the case immediately, it keeps your case air temperatures low. This enables your graphics card to cool itself better. Air coolers just exhaust your hot air inside the case.

    alot of coolers such as the hyper 212+ or any of a similar design generally dont dump hot air in your case having the cooler facing so it pulls air from the fron of the case and firing it towards the back virtually every case in existence will have an exhaust fan level with the cpu cooler so the hot air can pretty much go straight out the back of the case.

    I have the H50 currently and it is no better than my old hyper 212 was. I just purchased a megahalems and am going back to air. These all in ones are ok but not spectacular

    Also, I like my fancy RAM passive heatsinks .
    I also like to be able to move my PC around without the massive fan and heatsink snapping off the socket ;p
    Finally, they look nicer and allow for water cooling related bragging rights.
