I thought I was doing fine as well. there are actually 4 hard drives. 1 120gb ocz turbo, 1 300gb velociraptor and 2 1 tb wd dives. There isn't anywhere else for the pci-e cables to go, they are zip tied together and run from the behind the mobo tray.

It took 2 hours but I finally removed and replaced my H50, it's going back to amazon
I did find out that the shin etsu was nearly perfectly spread across the CPU so that was not an issue... since I only used it for a day I left it on for my Flex It's a great cooler but not worth it for my application. I'll post pics of it after I install my blackberry software... so 30 mins. I decided to keep the GTs but I'm wondering if I should go for the 1750RPM version... hmm... Those fans are AMAZING. They spin for half a minute after the power is shut off, fantastic 2-ball bearings. I recommended the higher RPM version for the H50 if noise is not an issue.

Edit:
Here are pics of my setup before I removed the H50. They were taken when I had it in an intake orientation. Included a pic of CPU after removing the block to show how well the Shin Etsu spreads Near total coverage I reused it when I replaced it with my Flex

Doesn't really seem like Air POCKETS... More like just where TIM stuck to his plate instead. Looks normal to me.

Yeah that's just from removing the TIM. It transferred heat very well. I left that paste on in fact for replacing the Flex... This setup runs maybe a few Celsius warmer than the H50 does. I decided that it wasn't worth the $80 difference Like I keep saying though, I love these GTs my case is running fairly loud now, but a lot of that has to do with the yate loon i threw in the exhaust... I'm glad I removed the back exhaust grill but now I have to clean it up with a dremel lest someone get shanked by it.

It's weird I'm both disappointed by the product and find it to be praiseworthy... hmm I still highly recommend it if you want an alternative to a bulky air cooler Now maybe I'll take that $ and put it toward another 5850 once they come back down to $270... hmm.... tee hee.

@ Shorty - that's the stock amount of shin etsu provided. Most of it still remained on the block. it looks like a lot but it does not inhibit heat transfer imo.
