Also, how much of a difference does an additional fan make (I don't plan on running the fans at maximum speed....something that balances temperatures and noise)
Sup dude.

With the H50 most people get better temps with it is exhaust I would say. However, some get better temps with intake. I suggest you try both ways and see what works better for you. For me, a 2nd fan helped me shave off about 2-3ºc at full blast. What fans you plan on using on it?

So you're saying that "pull" is better?

I'd be using the fan that comes with the H50 and then the one that I pulled out of the Silverstone Sugo SG05 I had...it's almost silent, and moves a decent amount of air. I only have one shroud (came from a buddy who broke one of his fans and was going to toss it), so I could only have a shroud for the "pull" fan or the "push" fan...not both

EDIT: Weren't you running an H50 on your X4 965?

I sure was, I traded it for a rad and going to piece together a full loop for my upcoming build.

I at least had better temps when exhausting. A shroud does help, however if I had to choose, I'd put the shroud on the push fan.

Sounds good, thanks!
I don't know when I'll be ordering, I'm waiting on my friend to buy my HD5670 so I'll have the funds.
BTW, I PM'ed W1zz @ TPU and I'm going to be writing a review of the H50 for the main site...

I wouldn't wait for Newegg as they won't have them for another 10 days. I'd just get them from Performance PC's instead for $1 more shipping. That way they come sleeved

Thanks, Jocelyn...I actually already placed that order

I'll do some more x264 encoding tonight and can get a read on the temps at full load. I tightened the screws on the retention ring but used a pretty low torque screwdriver; so, I don't think it was too much. I'm hoping that helps a few degrees plus the new fans in a couple of days I'll try inverting the rad and see whether intake or exhaust works better.

thank you.
Some of the guys over on the water cooling thread suggest this...

Coolant: distilled water and 2 drops of pt nuke

one is for just distilled other is used with U/v dye
http://search.store.yahoo.net/cgi-bi...uery=pt%20nuke

or

Fluid XP+ Distilled water
http://www.frozencpu.com/brands/brand/b47/Fluid_XP.html

Coolant, i guess will be a little like TIM... everyone will have an opinion

Forgive me for not reading the full 691 pages but does anyone know if the pump would have sufficient power if I added a northbridge and maybe a mosfet cooler into the loop?

Couldnt hurt to try. But it probably wont have enough power, unless the flow restriction from the added blocks is too high.
