Not for $50, and having to use an external wall plug. If you want high airflow, look at something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835705004.

114CFM>55CFM
$16.99>$~50.00
Fan Header>Wall Socket.
Spins at 2700RPM, the one you mentioned was ~3000RPM? Anyways, at those speeds either fan will sound like a leaf blower, so moot point

Hope this helps!

Well, I tried to re-seat my H50 with NT-H1 and it still is pretty high, idling @ 40 with CnQ and prime95 took it up to 59* before I turned it off within a few minutes

I cleaned both the block + cpu with rubbing alcohol, then I put a rice size dab of Nt-H1 and used my ID card to spread it out ... You think I should try re-seating it with just a dab in the center and not spreading it out?

If you can, take the H50 off and take a photo of the cpu and h50 so we can see if its a contact problem. When your priming, do you notice the radiator getting hot? What speed is the pump going at? What speed is the fan/fans going at?

Well the bottom of the H50 is pretty scratched up, i was very surprised actually... What do you mean "priming" ? I have the pump connected to my fan controller NZXT Sentry 2 and its getting full volts ... the Fan's are also running at max volt through the fan controller.

I have noticed when its running pretty hot around 55* or so the air coming out of the back is pretty hot... (I have a push/pull exhaust setup)

Try plugging into your motherboard.

I plugged the pump into the mobo, same results.

I just don't know why its running so hot... these are the stock AMD cooler temps! Stock clocks, good airflow...

I've screwd down the mounting circle pretty tight, maybe I should try to go tighter? I don't want to break anything. I'm using stock AMD backplate.

What about intake vs exhaust? You said there was scratches have you contacted Corsair on maybe sending you a new one. I don't know if there is a Corsair AMD backplate, but if there is try using that, it might make the difference. I went as tight as it could go for my H50, and it didn't hurt a thing. If you can go tighter do it, If you're damaging your hardware you can usually hear the breaking and cracking. Have you tried a shroud or adding more fresh air intake? Check out the The Corsair H50 Accessory Permalink for more ideas.

I have a question about the fan shroud, what exactly does it do? Does it fit over the fan like a condom and direct airflow? Why would a fan need more direct airflow if it's already pointing in one direction and blowing air?

I could understand if it was a funnel type device but it looks like it doesn't do anything? Do you have any pictures of your fan installed in one or something?
