I think any thing larger then a 1/2" or 3/4" will result in no added decrease in noise.

You could get a dB meter and then be the first to post a result!

With a bump to 4.017 Ghz at 1.5 volts I idle at 32 C and max temp is approx 52-53 C after 3 hours Prime 95 blended.

Somthing is seriously wrong with your set up!
My CPU is stock for now till I make sure my H50 is working correctly. My "stock" at least how my motherboard set it for my 965 vcore was 1.5. I was at idle around 45 C and load 60-61 C ambient temp 22 C. I got the lowest stable vcore at 1.25 now and my idle is 38 C and load 49-50 C ambient still the same 22 C.

My setup is the H50 push/pull venting/exhausting out the back with two Akasa Apache fans. I originally had it pulling cool air in but it was making my video cards scream when playing games. This is pictures of my case/setup I posted earlier it is all the same except I have the push/pull setup. To add I am using AS5 TIM.

In the pictures showing the fan(s) I have a note below them that tells which direction each is going.

Any help would be greatly appreciated on what I should be getting for temps/how to fix any problems I may have.

I see some people using fans in the 1200-1500rpm range. Not to discourage you but, some of these fans have unknown static pressure and are not proven with rads (that I'm aware of). IMO ~2000rpm is the sweet spot. If you think you will get great temps on a fire breathing i7 cpu with slower and/or low static pressure fans, you would be mistaken. It takes the right combination of flow and pressure to move air quickly through a rads fins. I know in some regions or countries it may be hard to find some of the fans we suggest, but you are taking a gamble in deviating too far from the tried and true.

In no particular order, fans that are known to work well:
Gentle Typhoon AP15 (1850rpm) -25mm
CoolerMaster R4 (2000rpm) -25mm
Scythe Ultra Kaze (2000rpm) -38mm

There are plenty of other fans that are faster, noisier ,and with more flow and static pressure, out there. Unfortunately they are too loud for my liking and I take a pass on using those, but you are welcome to try. Please do not mistake a case fan with a high (claimed) cfm rating to automatically be a fan that works well with an H50 rad. When you put a restriction in front of them (a rad) they can barely muster any kind of airflow. Sometimes you are better off getting some of these noisier, better performing fans and slowing them down to a bearable level, if noise is your main concern.

Hope the above info helps you in selecting a great fan.

I think there is glycol in it. Glycol is antifreeze and it will kill ya if you ingest enough of it.

lol, i've heard mixed reviews....don't make fun of my overbite and wheelchair... Heres the liquid i got. My computer runs 24/7 all day every day, for people who let their computer sit for weeks at a time then yes the uv reactive flakes will settle causing build up. Again..this is what Ive heard. 6 months from now If I see settling ill let you know.

yea i looked up the lethal dose is 120ml and goodnight for me, i only got a couple of small drops on my lips....but it put me out for a couple of hours...I feel alright rite now, just have a splitting headache.

Dude so totally with you on the throwing up. Basically what I found is the stock liquid in the h50 is basically antifreeze. Tastes and smells just like it. I know this from working under a car with my Da when I was younger I looked up and all of a sudden the the drain plug was open and my mouth was too. Puked for almost a day and a half with the taste and all. Looking forward to the pics.
