I'm talking about Core 2 Quads that's all also.

This^ & ⇉. Corsair recommends intake, but Asetek the company who actually makes the H50 recommends exhaust. It really has to do with your GFX card and case. If you have a GFX with an air handler that blows hot air out the rear of your case, and pcnuttie you do. Its a good idea to have the H50 in exhaust. If you have a Vapor-X type of GFC with no air handler, its better to be intake. Also do you have a place for that hot air to go once its in your PC case. For the guys who have an air handlers on their GFX cards and their H50s in intake, need to be warned. Do to the season and AC's rooms, hot air from your GFX card is mixing with the cool air inside the radiator of the H50. This mixing creates condensation. That condensation is moisture that is now being blowing into your PC. But don't pay me no mind, feel free to try any way you like, and post about it. That's what this site is here for.
