Use the fans on front of case as intake, and everything else as exhaust.

the h50 is a ton better than an arctic pro , i get unbelievable temps with mine . i idle at 20c and load 65c @ 4.2ghz .. try lapping the base of the block and using better thermal paste .

1gb vram is more than enough to play any game at 1080p , any higher resolution will max out that 1gb easily .

2gb > 1gb though .

Lapping is to make a surface (i.e. the cooler's base) flat by sanding.

This isn't true, some 1GB's unlock and there is no proof that the 2GB OC better, that's just speculation. My 1GB is at 1000 / 1500 @ 1.22v, could probably go higher just no need to.

It depends on how much you paid for the 1gb and how much more you would've had to pay for the 2gb.

Everything is a good buy if the price is right.
