Couple with two TY-140s, this particular combination has an unique position between top performer heatsinks. Not the top one though in term of raw performance, but for noise to performance ratio, imo it should be one of the best currently.
I believe you're aware of the TY-140 performance as well, with a Y PWM cable, for "as.s" mobo owners like you, the primary advantage is at the ease and the comfort in controlling the double TY-140 pwm fans.
I'm waiting to learn if it will fit in a Beta Evo. Although there are better cases, there is no better case to fit under my shelf. So I wait.

Except that the h50 gets loud.
What I find interesting is that Sahil (Helios1234) looks at the surface area of the heatsink, which more or less bears out the results he gets. Also, he did repeat the tests and the results did not change.
The review is so exquisitely done it's another must-read, especially at the end where he looks at the SA, the D14, the Super Mega, the Archon and the HR-02 in passive mode, comparing them to each other. I love it.

My 6850 can be a little loud, as well as the case fans.
But I took it out of my case to do these tests. So the only extra noise was from the GPU, which I didn't load and put at the lowest fan setting.
