You need a fan with high static pressure, The coolermaster R4 Sickleflow have very high airlflow but low static pressure. This means the radiator on the h50 will stop alot of the air from passing.
Because the coolermsater R4 has such high airflow, and such low static pressure it makes it ideal for case fans as there is very little restriction
However for a h50 you would want something like and Akasa Apache or Gentle Typhoon
Why would you buy a Hexcore and not want to overclock it while knowing it's got an unlocked multi?
Just pokin' fun at ya.
To support this post, There are such things as pulling fans (high static pressure) and blowing fans (low static pressure). In other words, the low static pressure fans generally are those that would do well in an area that has low air movement and so it moves it along. The high static pressure fans are good for being placed on a radiator since they can pull the air from behind them like a vacuum and push it forcefully out the other end. Fans you'd place in front of a case with a filter would do best as a high pressure fan.
Be sure to do your research on fans. Could someone please give good numbers for high static pressure? I don't know what's considered a high number for all that.
NOTE: High CFM doesn't necessarily mean high static pressure. Keep this in mind.
