The only way(aside from being very familiar with your BIOS and OS) to ensure you are getting 100% power from the pump is to completely remove its ability to be throttled...i.e. plug it into a molex adapter if you're not sure you have or know how to disable all throttling actions from the header you're plugging it into.
Apparently your BIOS will let you go w/o the CPU fan header occupied...mine gives annoying warnings every time I reboot so I plug the pump into the CPU header since it's right there anyway. Then make sure I have set my advanced system cooling profile power settings in windows to Active and have all BIOS throttling disabled...works fine for me.

As for Prime95 - it is good and even better if you're just starting to overclock. It has a steady draw on your CPU and methodically checks it over to ensure you don't have a BSOD or freeze up at an inopportune time.
I personally like LinX better now that I've been using it for a while...pushes your temp higher than Prime95 in less time and usually detects errors in 5-15mins that Prime95 doesn't after 2hours+(but will if I leave on overnight).

Regardless, some sort of stress testing program is of course extremely useful and "necessary" for successful overclocking.

I forget what chapter it was discussed in this encyclopedia threadtanica but supposedly 32-35mm is the "sweet spot" for an H-50 Shroud...not sure if the same applies to H-70 as I don't fully understand the implications of 10-15mm distance variance on shrouds >< dang i just confused myself even talking about it
Anyway, I think you would be better served by a 30mm+ shroud but feel free to disagree^^

A shroud removes the "dead spot" of a fan the dead spot is the space behind the motor/hub of the fan where if you have the fan placed directly on to the radiator obviously no air is being blown on the radiator where the motor/hub is so putting a shroud between the fan and the radiator eliminates or at least lessons the dead spot . The optimal size of the shroud differs depending on the size of the motor/hub of your particular fan so there is no "perfect" size for a 120mm fan though most fans are about the same size so the 32-35mm shroud should be best for most. I only had 25mm shrouds to use so went with what I had and noticed almost a 3C drop.

thanks for clarifying. I had only 25mm as well but I used some plastic grills(gutted) as well and sealed them onto the shroud giving me roughly 34mm xDDD

Just ordered 2 Tecnofront Air Box 120's from Frozencpu.com Here

I also just got 4 new SilenX (2 38mm, and 2 25mm) so I'm planning on doing a pretty extensive review with the stock fans, my Antec TriCools, and these SilenX fans. Should be exciting!

I'm going to do a temp comparison between stock frequency and voltage and OC frequency and voltage, and w/ and w/o the shrouds for all the fans.

stock screws are 6/32 x 1"1/4.
If you care about noise the GTAP15's(scythe) seem to be the most common. The h-50 is a smaller rad so probably not going to see a huge difference in temps if you find a fan with higher static pressure but that is generally what you look for to move air through radiators. I could care less about noise so I try to find the highest static pressure+cfm 120mm fans....still experimenting

Nice man, look forward to seeing the results. I have some of those Silverstone Air Penetrator fans on the way with my channel molding order from Perf PCs. Just trying them to better direct cool air from the bottom of my case -> top, or maybe from side-top-left 120mm mount to blast the **** out of the Northbridge and CPU. Also, I will try them on the H-70 and see what they can do there. I'll post results as well so we can start a hybrid fan roundup for some of the new 120mm fans xD

I asked Killhouse to start a spreadsheet with user's fan setups and results stock vs. OC, but he didn't think it would be useful. I personally think it would be good to have a condensed source for looking at what fans people are using, whether it's a P/P config, direction of airflow (intake or exhaust), their temp results stock vs. OC, voltages, etc.

Well, there are so many variables that would need to be included in something like that. Killhouse probably didn't want to spend the next week compiling data =P I cannot see how this wouldn't be useful though, don't have to pay attention to exact numbers just the difference between them. What would be great is having the stock temps at stock clocks/configuration of h50/70 then resulting temps from upgraded fans/shrouds/placement/TIM used/Case+case airflow path...hmm what else to make it less subjective?

How much does the Corsair fans move air wise?

I put two of THESE on it, and I have them on high.

Would the Corsair fans be better, the fans I linked to arent that loud either, and I dont care how load they are because my GTX 470 is much louder anyway

Yeah... I was going to start compiling data, but I think this thread is just too big at this point to start something like that. There's just too much to keep track of.
