if you have the room for it then run the IFX-14. If you like the look/design/idea of AIO water cooling then go with the corsair. I'd lap and run the IFX-14 in your shoes.

I have used my Lapped IFX-14 for years and almost nothing out there can touch it. The Silver Arrow, Archon, and D-14 have just caught up to it.
I can post some temps when I get off work. Please post any questions you have about it.

You probably don't have to take temps, it's hard to say if you don't test the h50 and the ifx in the exact same testing environment. But it sounds like the ifx is the winner.

Heat load is a major factor in cooler performance; with a 930 @ 4.2, you're at the upper range of heat output.

AIO water coolers perform well at low to mid heat loads, but for high loads, they're easily surpassed by twin tower coolers, db for db.

The IFX loves heat, and your i7 would put those monster heat pipes to good use. Like others said, this is one cooler that you DO want to lap, as OEM base can be very uneven. I would bet the IFX can knock off a good 5 - 10 degrees with low speed fans.
