My only worrying thought about this H50, is can the top bracket screws be tightened down so much that it totally compresses the springs ? and how do you know when to stop tightening them so you don't put too much force on your processor ?

It would be hard to do that with this setup. I don't think you're in any danger of breaking anything though - people purposely pressure mod other coolers to push them on tighter. The screws will bottom out if you go to far; you'll see when to stop.

With all screw down coolers Ive have experience with, you screw down until you cant turn anymore. The cooler has a brace for the back of the mobo and the only risk Id image in to strip the tread on the screw.

Tightening the screws in opposite locations eg Screw 1, screw 3, screw 2, screw 4 generally gives balance on the CPU mount without undue pressure.

I dont think there is anything to worry about here.

After several months of showing extreme interest, I just ordered one of these bad boys. I'm quite excited. Will provide updates with pics when it gets here!

I was gonna get a Zalman 9500, did not want a almost 2 pound weight hangin off inches from my processor ( the Zalman 9700, 9900 or CNPS extreme ), so no doubt my only choice now is the H50.Log your temps from your current Zalman setup and let us know how bad the Corsair H50 gives it a spanking

Lol, yeah, my current temps aren't great. Under partial load (62% or so):



The H50 should preform a bit better

Nice, it'll be good to see a direct comparison - forgot to take readings on my stock AMD cooler, but I dropped around 10C load and 7/8C idle. And just as importantly its quieter. Just want to get a NB heatsink and a new graphics card cooler and my system will be much quieter, especially in my new case.
