If you look at the photos they are 3 different systems.

I've got one mounted with a Phenom II 955 Black on an Asus M3N78 Pro. I get this isn't really a good over clocking board.

I'm thinking of getting another one for my Phenom II 940, Asus M4A77D. I've ordered some Scythe 120 x 12mm fans. I can't install an H50 in the rear or a 120mm x 25mm fan on top, The thin Scythes should make it possible to mount an H50 from the top. At least with AMD Overdrive it helps for idiots to overclock like me.

all my h50 is mounted rear for best airflow, but the last one i had to mount it top the case would not fit a h50 in the rear, thats a down side for the nxzt beta evo

Why wouldn't it fit in the rear? I have that case and it mounts in the rear just fine.

only way to mount to rear is to do pull only, because am using the p45 gigabyte mobo the cpu socket is close to the rear, the rear mount only fits a 120mm fan, h50 rad is a little bigger than 120mm, more like 140mmx120mm i tried to do push and pull but as i was saying the cpu socket being too close the pump will block the push fan, and i didnt want to mount it outside of the case so i had to go with top

My stock case fans are 1200rpm fans and I have added some Akasa Apache 1300rpm fans I tried first for the H50 p/p setup that simply didn't do the job the 1850rpm GT's are quieter than the 1200rpm stock In-Win Fanqua fans(the Akasa Apache fans are silent as long as I don't have my ear right on the case). If you have your antec case fans dialed down to lesser rpm's then you could do the same for the GT 1850rpm fans if they where too loud though I doubt they would be louder than your stock fans. I only really hear air flowing and no noise of the fans themselves at all and most of the time playing music or game sounds or whatever even on very low no way I could hear the little noise from the fans/air movement.
ya true. the antec fans are antec tricool so they dont run off the mobo but off the PSU power alone. they have a 3 speed switch that changed them and i cannot stand them on medium. so i looked up a benchmark on the fans and on low they run 800rpm @21cfm @ 20db so i dont want louder than that ya know? so wouldnt the 1450's be fine as they run 21 db? i think those fans blow like 50cfm as well. do you still think its better to go the 1850rpm fans though cause they would probly be louder right

It just comes down to if your are happy with your stock H50 temps if you are two GT 1450 fans and a shroud or two will lower it by a little with no db increase.

The 1450rpm are 50cfm which is exactly what the stock Corsair fan is. Are you happy with the cooling the stock fan gives? Cause if you aren't having two 1450 GT's is only going to lower your current temps by the very extreme 6-7c even with shrouds. I lowered my temps by 18c from stock.

We both have the same CPU my H50 stock temps with no OC Prime95 blended where 66c IMO way too high I shut down Prime95 quick after getting those readings. I changed to the Akasa Apache 1300rpm 57cfm(higher than stock fan) with a p/p setup and only got down to 60c still too close to the max 62c that I don't want to be close to. I changed to the GT 1850rpm fans and went down to 50c added the shrouds and now it is 46-48c.

Different motherboards and other factors of course make a difference too your temps may be lower than mine by default and stock H50 works great for you for me no way it would work out.

Good luck with your decision on fans. It took me about a month to get mine all sorted out.

wow.. i was running 60's with the stock cooler lol. i dont know if this matters but i ran about 15 minutes of prime and my temps only went to 35c
my idles are 21-26

the more you talk about those 1850's the more i want them lol. i'd probly run epu anyways so the fans would run around 800 rpm or so but i guess if it heated up alot it has more headroom to raise its rpm. the only problem is im running a computer with corrupt ram so it isnt running correctly ya kno? maybe if i wait a week they might 1850's might come in who knows or i could always email egg..

is one shroud enough? or should i have one after the rad? i dont know if that will fit though it. IMO that would also make the cooler less efficient because it would be blowing more air into the top bay which is closed off
