I might just have to try this. altho I think on the intake side is going to be better bc you wont have the motor of the push fan sitting right against the rad creating a dead spot (what the shroud is trying to eliminate). On second thought I dont think Ill try it Ill just wait for Contagian's Super Uber Awesome In depth test results. I think he plans to test basicly every config possible with 2 fans , a shroud and the H50.

Well my shroud ended up cracking so that is a no go. I think I will be fine with the push pull for now.

Like so, but with a smaller fan:

Ok so I have a Storm Scout case. Over the last several days I've been tinkering with fan configs on both the case and the H50. My biggest issue was with system temps due to the rad dumping heat inside the case. Nothing major, under full load my system temps reach 32c. But this case has serious cooling when configed properly, so I wasn't happy. So I tinkered and tinkered some more. So this is what I have come up with. On the H50 from back to front...CM R4 exhausting(pull) / fan shroud / rad / CM R4 supply (push). I have 2 140mm fans on the front of the case as supply, and a 120 on the side panel providing ambient air to video card. The top of the case normally houses a 140. But because of my fan config on the rad this space is empty and providing passive exhaust. From 18" away from the back of the case, I can feel strong (strong for a case fan) air pressure coming from the rad. My cpu temps are identical to what they were before when I had the exhaust fan turned around and blowing into the rad, and my system temps are running 25 - 29c idle/load. Not bad.

For those of you who use the cooler with the fan blowing in from outside, what are you using as a filter to prevent dust from entering the case? It is hard to find something that will fit outside of my cosmos 1000.

so yeah just got my h50 today and was hoping for some good temps, i used to have a noctua nh-u12p on a x3 720 oc to 3.6 with idle temps at 40c, i just got a x4 955 this weekend and installed the same noctua and idle temps were at 28c-29c and load was at 41c, then i installed the h50 my idle temps went up to about 30c-31c and then i oc the 955 to 3.6 (lookin for 3.8) and my idle temps are at 40c-41c and im stable (no i dont have a cpu-z validation right now cause i might remove the h50 and sell it) but at full load it goes up to 52c-53c running prime94 for about 1hr, my setup goes like this, 230x16, cpu 1.43, honestly i really didnt think temps would be this high even for a quad core and my room is cold, any insight or help would be much appreciated.

Picked up my H50 yesterday from best buy. There were 2 left. I don't know if its an upgrade from my zalman 9700 because my temps are all wrong from a bad motherboard but i'll find out tomorrow when my new board comes in. One thing is for sure though, its definitely quieter. You can add me to the owners list.
