I might be willing to sacrifice the two SickleFlow's I have in the top of my case to add to the H50 if I got one.
damn h50 is 69 bucks now. hmm...
Well if you're like me and want to be able to see more than the Noctua DH-14 inside your HAF, then I would say go with the H50. Cause there is no accounting for space and the DH-14 takes up A LOT of real estate.
The thing to remember if you go back to the H50 is it's all in how it's set up for the most part. This is how I have it set up in my 932...
Note that I have it set up with the Pump I/O at the bottom and that my hoses are not kinked. I also have the Pusher fan blowing up and out of the cabinet. I tried running it as intake and my CPU actually ran hotter, so I went back to Exhaust. Some people place the whole setup facing forward and use the face of the 932 as an Intake. Make sure your pump is plugged in on a header that you can max out or at least run at 90% power. If you plug it into your CPU header there is a good chance that it will fluctuate and ramp down your pump which can affect the life of it. If you can see it my CPU header is at the top middle of the board. I have my P/P setup plugged in there to control the fan speed as if those fans were in direct contact with the CPU.
As far as a link goes you could go to Performance-PCs.com or Newegg.com or Crazy-PCs.com. Crazy seems to have the best deal on that right now. But not by much and the non-returnable status has me a little leery especially if they're selling remans as new. Not saying they are, but when you cannot return something, you take your chances with the quality of the products you purchase. If they are legitimate well there is a reason they're going out of business. IMHO their prices are why they are. Everyone else is selling at semi-respectable prices while they chose to over-price their stock. It's not like they are a parts house without Net access. It's not the consumer that is responsible for their downfall. Their downfall is due to them not keeping a better eye on the prices of their products. They could get away with their out of date stuff because people had no place else to go.
Anyway off track again it seems. If you want a good deal on a H50, why not google it and look for the most reliable source with a price that you feel is reasonable.
