Heck, the Hyper 212+ can hang with an H50 and only costs about $25 or so.
4.2GHz on an i7 950 true colours? I'm hoping for at least 4 though.

A Noctua would cost less than the H50 when I add in the two fans for push pull so I reckon I'll go for that.

I had 4.2GHz peaking at 76C in Prime, ambients of 23/24C, with HT/on.

Then I went to EK water, coz summers coming on here, and want higher OC. Will Artie want more?

I'd be more than happy with 4.2 GHz.

I have the H50, in my 690 ii case,
If you are overclocked to 4.0ghz @ 1.3v you can expect load temps of 70c (Akasa apche fan)
If you move the radiator so it is an intake (put it in the 5.25 bays) You will shave a few degrees of that temps because the hot air from the NB and ram is not going through the rediator.
NOTE the H50 does not fit at the top of the case because when it has a fan on it it hits the ram slots.

High end air cooling ( Megahalem, Cogage arrow etc....) All perform better than the h50
BUT the h50 can be quiter and looks ALOT better in a case

I don't care how it looks, my case doesn't have a window in it. I'll get the Noctua. I see that it's set to blow the air out through the back of the case where there is a fan conveniently stationed there. Would the stock fan in the 690 case be sufficient?

Yeah the stock fan is fine.
I only got the CM 690 II basic ( same as the advanced but less fans)
So i ended up replacing all the fans with 'Coolermaster R4's ) AKA Sickleflow fans. Other people recomend fans like Gentle typhoons or Akasa Apaches)

For air cooling i found putting a fan in the front 5.25 bays helped alot with the cpu temp.
Also removing the extra hdd bays helped cool gpu temps

yeah, I have coolermaster R4's in similar places
2x front (1 in the dvd drive area)
1x top(above cpu area) - Didnt put two or it kills the airflow of the fan from the front
bottom - especially if your card runs very hot.
back - defiantly!
