First time was with stock TIM, second time was with Noctua Nt-H1 and I put it on CPU and spread it out with credit card. Both times I load well above 60* in prime95 stock clocks and idle in the 40's
wow...my OC'd E7400 running at 4GHZ runs cooler....you my friend aredoing something very wrong if it hasnt worked 3 times, my E7400 idles at 26C and loads at around 54-56C i spread my TIM out ( its a very cheap vantec thermal paste i had laying around) i intend to switch to OCZ Freeze later this month to see how much temps drop

This will tell you if you are using enough and getting good coverage.
So you dont have to spread the TIM?, let the IHS spread it for you? i might be reseating my H50 with AS5.

I have the NZXT Tempest Evo case, and on the back panel, there is already a 120mm fan... Should i or could i just mount the h50 radiator directly to that one? or is there a way to keep the stock fan that came with the case (which is exhaust) and use the one that comes with the radiator as well? I really hope there is enough space to fit the h50 where my current 120mm fan is...

Yep, you can use the existing 120mm fan that comes with your case. Then you can do a push/pull setup with the 120mm fan that comes with the H50. Just know that if you want to get better performance, you'll likely want to buy 2 better fans that have higher CFM and better static pressure.

how exactly would i do a "push-pull" setup?

current exhaust->radiator->fan blowing towards radiator?

and are the screws long enough to do that? or do you just screw a fan onto either side?

do you think it will fit where my stock fan is now?

push/pull simply means having a fan on either side of the cooler, in this case, a radiator. So, it will go like this. [Fan]-[Radiator]-[Fan] with both fans facing the same direction. Usually the side that has the sticker on the fan hub is the direction it blows.

So for example, if you wanted push/pull exhaust setup:
Arrows indicate airflow direction as exhaust (out the back of case)
<-- (Back of Case) <-- (Fan) <-- (Radiator) <-- (Fan) <--

Or if you wanted push/pull intake setup:
Arrows indicate airflow direction as intake (into the back of case)
--> (Back of Case) --> (Fan) --> (Radiator) --> (Fan) -->

What you can do is temporarily (until you pick up extra screws) take 2 of the 4 screws that come with the H50 and use 2 screws (diagonally) to screw one fan in, and the other 2 screws (diagonally) to screw in the other fan, and whalaa!

could i use the stock screws and just use the other 4 that come with the h50 so that i have all 4 screwed in? or does 2 suffice? and do you think there will be room? considering there is room for a 120mm fan there already... [im worried about the northbridge, is it? thats right next to the i/o shield on the motherboard... will this get in the way?]

and should i use the stock preapplied TIM?

Probably not, because the screws that you need (and come with the H50) are 6-32 x 1.25 machine screws and your stock case fan screws are likely a different size. You can pick some up at your local hardware store, but will probably be silver and not black, but if that bothers you, you can just do a light black spray paint on them.

Using 2 will suffice for now (as I mentioned in my previous post) until you get a chance to pickup 4 more. As far as room goes, I'm pretty confident that you shouldn't have any trouble fitting this inside your case, but, what I'm not sure about is your specific motherboard.. if the northbridge is high enough where it would block the 2nd fan or not.

You should also take advantage of using the stock TIM that comes with the H50! It is Shin Etsu (one of the best TIM's out right now - so enjoy that!)

okay cool man. i think i'm gonna go pick one up in 3 hours when i get out of work. i have a 30$ gift card to microcenter, so might as well put it to good use. i was getting idle temps of ~50C with the stock heatsink of the i7, so i'm really not too happy about that. hopefully this will do the trick. i will then allow myself to overclock it to around 3.6-3.8 if its within safe levels.

another quick question for you... the top 2 fans on my case are also highspeed exhaust fans. according to nzxt, there are predrilled holes for "dual 120mm radiators" up there. should/could i mount the radiator upside down, in the top of the case instead of on its side using the rear exhaust fan? im still a bit nervous about leaks since its my first time ever dealing with watercooling...

Oh yeah, this cooler will more than do the trick! I've pushed the i7 920 to 4.4GHz with this cooler. So if you're only doing 3.6-3.8 you will have no problems at all.

Yeah, you could actually mount the H50 pretty much anywhere you want, it doesn't have to be on the back. Some people mount it in the front of the case, the side panel and even the top panel. So there are lots of options, it just depends on your specific case and what you like. As far as leaks go, you shouldn't have anything to worry about, this kit comes pre-sealed using steel tubing wrapped in black plastic, so there is no need for maintenance or refilling of the water, like you would typically do with a full water loop. And even if you're the unlucky 0.00009% person that gets a bad unit, Corsair has been really good about replacing all the parts inside the case that get damaged.
