In the video they say the fan is pusher and venting the hot air of the case out. You say that the air is being blown "into" the case. Typo by Legit Reviews or is video incorrect from CoolIt?

How does this perform vs an H70?

I am currently working on retesting the H70 on the new test system to put into the charts for the next article.

Ribeye, I will double check the fan direction.

The price/performance isn't there. Why would I spend more on something that doesn't cool as well and has to ability to leak fluid into my computer? I'd rather pick up a high end Noctua or Thermalright heatsink and call it a day. Even if the fans fail on a traditional HSF you still have a barrier of protection, the heatsink itself.

This is coming from someone who's about to rip out a cheap water cooling kit and put back in a traditional HSF.
