Did it come like that? Is that after removing it from CPU and cleaning? AFAIK the plate is all copper and not just copper coated so I don't think that should be a big deal.

No. Just discoloration from heat and the TIM. Lap it and forget about it

Did you use alcohol to remove the tim? It shouldn't be a big deal either way. By the looks of that pic it doesn't look like its a very smooth surface but it could just be the lighting. I'll take a closer at mine when I get the time to put my new Shin-Etsu tim on but I think I would of noticed if mine looked like that.

thats right after i cleaned it with 99.9% isopropanol.
the problem isn't discoloration, its the giant hideous scratch at the top (or is it a problem? i dont know)

I don't think the scratch will effect you too much since it looks like that area isn't touching your CPU anyway but you could always lap it if it bothers you.

I was hoping maybe that was just a shadow but any decent size scratch on the mounting surface isn't good. If it were right down the middle where it would be on top of your cores I'd be pretty concerned but yours looks like its far enough away it probly won't hurt your temps.

For the H50, it has been said that it's almost a must to install additional fans to take away the heat. Is there any special configuration that you guys would recommend? Also, how does this fit in with my choice of case. Do I need a certain type of case that can support these fans?

First, welcome to OCN. Second, if you look through this thread, most of the members here have the H50 (or H70) setup using 2 fans in push/pull. Personally, I'd recommend you get 2 Scythe GentleTyphoon AP-15 fans and do a push/pull (intaking). Here's a link to Corsair's H50 supplemental mounting info. As long as you have some good cable management in your case, with decent airflow, then you should be fine.

As for the case, you didn't mention what size are you planning to use (full tower, mid tower, etc), your budget and so on. They can vary from $60 up to $300.. so might wanna give us your budget first.

Well as for cases, I've had the coolermaster 932 recommended to me. That's $169 AU and comes with 3 200 mm fans, one 140 mm fan and supports 8 more. How does that sound?

Would the H50 radiator fit in one of those 140 fan slots? I'd then add in push/pull fans either side.
