Wonder why the heck it's only slightly better than the 3580 & supposedly worse then a good air cooler?
That doesn't sound right, anyway thanks for the leads, I'll dig deeper...
No problem. Yeah, while I was digging around, it said the 3590 (dual rad version) only cools about 5% more than the H50. I guess it's better than nothing. You may want to look at pricing and see if it's worth the extra cash.

Installed the Scythe Kama Bay Plus (took up 3x 5.25" bays)
- mounted a 120x42mm Airbox inside closest to the front
- followed by a GT 1850
- followed by another 120x42mm Airbox
- followed by another GT 1850

This created an air tunnel to pull/push cool air smack into the middle of my case.

I then setup my H50 radiator as push/pull exhaust using 2 different fans.
- GT 1850 [push]
- YL 1650 (Blue LED) [pull]

So far, I'm very pleased with the results. This system is super quiet and yields amazing results!

i7 920 @ 4.0GHz @ 1.192v
Ambient 23c
Idle 34c-38c
Load 60c-66c (Intel Burn Test v2.4 - Stress Level "High" - 20 passes)

(do these seem like decent temps to everyone? Is that considered a good stress test?)

I also have a TFC Xtender Shroud sitting here, that I want to incorporate somehow. I may pull out either the YL or GT from the radiator and just do a single fan w/ the 31mm TFC shroud and see how that does. I didn't want to place any fans on the outside of the case, but, I may end up doing that just to see what kind of temp drops I will see.
wow those are amazing temps. im jealous screenshot of the rig please

That is what I am hoping for.. but still need a bit more $$$ to get it... afterwards officially managing to put on use the H50.... it sucks the radiator doesn't fit in my current case.. if you could see how I have a 120mm fan in it.. you would laugh your pants off =D

At least for my current cheap air cooling I am surviving

Alright so I got frustrated and took everything out of my case and reinstalled the bracket and all. I carefully watched how the bracket and the mount on the front were going in and I noticed sometimes my the teeth were not catching all the clips, only about half. But I went ahead and tightened the screws in a X pattern and went in the bios and reset my overclock back to stock and my temps look much better. Idle in stock is now 19C-24C. Load is now 38C-44C. Much happier now but I am not looking forward to ever taking this thing off again.

Thanks to everyone that was helping me out. I really appreciate it! Now to see how far I can overclock.

How could that be, any idea where you read that?

If true then that means the H50 performs better than the Asetek 240mm too!
Because as far as I can tell it's the same as the NQ (still 100% confirming)

Thanks.
Apparently Corsair redesigned the pump/block with Asetek help to improve its performance. So it should beat the equivalent Asetek product.

TIP: pull up on the upper bracket while you insert and lock the pump into position. Then pull up on the pump to keep it in position in the upper bracket while you tighten the screws down. This also keeps you from smearing your TIM.

Good tip. I learned the hard way and had to loosen the screws and move the pump. I was just catching the lip of the tabs so my temps were OK, I was just nervous that it would slip off or get cocked and overheat

I only had to move the pump a fraction so I didn't remove it completely or replace the thermal grease. Temps are 31c idle still and the loop is working great

+rep for the tip!
