What are your recommendations?
General Consensus in 1300+ pages:

Mount as rear exhaust, push->shroud->rad->pull.

No shroud? Keep same config but w/o shroud.

can someone post a screen of this? i don't know how to make this setup

Max,

Not sure if this is the question you're asking, but "push/pull" means that you have one fan attached to the radiator blowing air into it (push) and one fan attached on the opposite side of the radiator blowing air away from it (pull).

it improves the air flow through the radiator.

I do. I have a Scythe Kama Bay Plus in the front as an extra intake. I'm going to add a Gelid Icy vision as soon as I get around to it. Since that will stop the hot air from exiting the back and keep it in the case, I plan on reversing the back fan into an exhaust. I may end up changing the H50 to an intake at that time if I sees a rise in temps.

Personally I would mount it as exhaust on the back. I tried intake with this H70 first but the temps inside the case went up like mad. Now as exhaust I saw almost no temp difference on the CPU, but my inside case temps are way way better. It also helps with cooling the graphic card.
actually i have the front fan as an exhaust.
to cool the 5770 i puttde my silent eagle 2000 (120mm) on the side panel beneath the graphics card.

in theese coming days i'll try push pull...

it could work, though seeing you got stock GPU cooling it will exhaust hot air from the card out of the back. Hot air rises and will be taken in by the H50.
Exhaust might actually lower the temps.

You'll never know what you get until you try, for me it was a nice suprise, I was a skeptic about intake but in my case it worked great, others it made it worst so each result will be different, I'll try an take some new pictures tonight so you can see my final setup, it might clear up a few things.

this weekend I was messing with the radiator/shroud etc. and was looking for some 6/32 bolts longer than 2". I was unable to find any at Home Depot and in dispair I began to randomly compare the 6/32 bolts that I had with other hardware in the aisle.

Long story short, I picked up bolts labeled as 1/8" x 3" and they fit perfectly. Cost like $0.98 for a pack of 4 bolts.

If you can't find the 6/32 in an appropriate length, bring the bolt to the hardware store and compare it to bolts in the 1/8" diameter category and you may find what you need. Didn't notice anyone posting this info previously, hope that I'm not just restating obvious knowledge.

If adding a 25mm shroud you would need 2 and 1/4 in lon 6-32s'.

I wasn't able to find them so I had to buy 3" and cut them to size after adding a pair or retaining nuts and cutting at the back one on each bolt.

If using a 35mm shroud, I'm pretty sure you can use them w/o cutting, but would probably need some washers to keep the bolts from puncturing the Radiator.

Actually mine are a bit longer than 2 and 1/4 as I have the square fan silencers as gaskets to seal the unit. Glue is the last thing to use since it doesn't seal anything unless applied to the entire surface. Fan silencers aren't expensive and what I would suggest every time.

I'll add another vote for intake
I d*cked around with various options as exhaust, and saw significant difference when i moved it to an intake.

How does that even make sense though...(maybe this is why i'm a history and political science major) i don't see how blowing warm air in to the case could be anything but detrimental to the overall temps.
