I know when I went from a single fan to two fans I dropped like 7-8c and then I added a shroud and I dropped another 2-3c and than I tried seating the pump until I was happy and when it was all done I had dropped a total of 17-18c from the stock intel under load.
I only noticed maybe 2-3c difference when I added a pull fan. You guys are seeing much better results maybe I'll try again.

I'm sure there is a thread out there for this, but i thought it would be best to ask the owners of the H50's. I know Corsair says that it should be mounted as in intake, this doesn't make much sense to me though. Blowing hot air all over the mobo? Though I've heard that it brings lower temps. What are your recommendations?

Try reseating your pump, I really messed it up the first(s) time with too much tim or not properly lined up then I finally got it where I wanted it. I even installed the fans facing each other on the rad once, what a noob I felt like then.

I see your also on an AMD, from what I can read these run quite a bit cooler than the my Intel. I can unsderstand a little why you would see such a small difference but I still think you could do better. What are you averall temp at idle and load?

Oh so long ago, those now so obvious mistakes...

Btw, i got my 38mm Panflo and a 25mm shroud on to the back of my case with a filter using the 8/32 screws i bought, so i didn't need to zip tie the back(because my zips where to darn short) but i did use zips on the pull fan, and its seats very well, so in the end no bending required

I bought some 8" zips but they where to damn thick to go through the holes. Any one had luck finding nice long zips that fit fans well??

I tried both, in the end I've got intake at the front and I'm down about 2-3c overall but my case is also down since I have 2 fans at the top and one at the back that exhaust that hot air of the rad as soon as it comes in. I didn't think I would see the difference but in my case the front intake was that much better. For some exhaust at the back is still best for their set-up.

I have mine push-pull with a shroud as an exhaust out of the top of my 800d and with an intake providing it with outside air from the back.

Good to see you got your setup working well, I still can't find screws long enough around me and I'm not about to go order some on line when my little trutee zip ties work for me. Just the same, I can only find them 4" long, everything after that the body of the zip tie is too fat to fit through the hole.

Wow you got a GTX 470, that blows hot ait at the back just like my 480. In my view you're just sucking that hot air back in your case by doing an intake at the back, I don't know about your case but could you do an intake from the front where the air should really be cool?

Put 2 or more of the smaller zip ties together. Or go to Canadian Tire and buy 3" toggle bolts and some 6/32 nuts.
