I ran my 2500k at 4.9ghz on my H50 with a load temp of around 64C which considering the clock isn't bad at all.
Another thing to take into consideration is the weight of the units. These little coolers are so much lighter all around. A large mammoth heatsink puts all the weight right around your CPU socket and is overall just heavier in general during transport.
