2x140mm top exhaust
2x120mm push/pull exhaust on h50
Since I am putting a gtx 770 with acx cooler (will dump heat into case not out back) should i make the h60 push/pull intake, so it blows air in and gets exhausted through top 2 140mm fans?
I agree w/pc-illiterate. This is a classic case (no-Pun?) where an intake setup "could" be more beneficial, but understand you "may" have to clean your radiator more often, so keep an eye on it. I also think the couple of degrees you'll gain by using intake over exhaust will help as I suspect that with your rather aggressive OC that your H50 and subsequent new H60 is maxed out trying to keep up. Plus now your going to add more case heat with your new non-reference, OC'd(?) 770. Your only other option if you wanted to stick with exhaust is add another 120mm on your left panel as intake, I don't believe a 2nd one (upper) would clear the H60?
Try it out both ways and let us know what you think

Is this common after a couple of years? Or should I not worry and go ahead and buy another?
Are you sure it's dead? more details would help? temps/noise/bios pump rpms etc ...
If for sure it is dead, I think your still under warranty and an RMA is fairly painless w/Corsair.
