Cant go wrong with either, both are excellent picks

You will get lots of debate on that, depending who you ask.
Price them both and go with the one that fits your budget or how quickly you can get it IMHO...
I am liking my H50 for the record.

Alright, so when I get my shipment in tomorrow I will call newegg and get the V8 shipped back and use the stock cooler for now. I'm thinking i'm going to go with the H50 because of space limitations in my midsize tower. Thanks for the input guys!! Hope you'll be there for meh every step o the way

What heatsink are you using for it?

I wouldn't say superior but that is my opinion. Its not "cheap" TIM but I would say you shouldn't have to worry about replacing it. If you absolutely need to replace it due to preference then do it, you really can't do any harm either way.

If anything I'd make sure you buy two 120mm fans to set up a solid push/pull on the rad. You can do a single but just on personal experience and probably many others experience the push/pull is well worth it and shows in the temps.
