Dunno if that's the way to go
I'm just interested as to why AS5 is rated so high but you don't hear anything about MX-3, which according to the companies site is their newer thing and outdoes AS5 significantly as well as having no cure time.

Weird

It's because AS5 used to be king,about 4 years ago we didn't have much better then AS5 and what was good was good at a cost. AS5 is starting to show it's age and a lot better paste is coming around.

Personally if I have to apply paste, I will use my trusty bottle of AS5 just because of the "ole faithful," stigma I have for it.

I'm using the antec 900 case with standard fans, no side window fan.
I'm planning to OC the cpu.

What would be the better option for me?

Might stick with the MX-3 for the same reason then!

Corsair h50 would provide better cooling than your current CPU cooler IMO.

exhaust will provide better temps to the other components (if they need some negative pressure)

intake will provide better temps to the cpu (since it is getting cooler air from outside of the case)

Honestly?

I would play around with it in different spots and try both ways and see what gives you your best temps.

I don't mean to be a buzzkill but your ambients are different than our ambients. So we can't give you a proper critique on what works. Also your case is different than mine and mine is different than Joe's(fictional person) case.

That's the kewl thing about this Cooler. That you can mover the Rad around and find that sweet spot for cooling that works for your case and your ambients and your setup.

Is it okay to have the radiator mounted directly to the case, rather than on a fan?

So it goes like this from the outside in: rear case wall, radiator, exhaust fan.

It'll be fine just as long as you can find a way to mount it (perhaps using shorter screws)
