Being in a non-us country, where prices get stupid.

Yeah, but i read the h50 has the fan set as intake, thus blowing hot air over parts yada yada,

So wouldnt know where to put the fan ???????

I have a 140mm exhaust, top
120mm intake, over GPU
120mm exhaust, rear.
120mm intake, over HDD bays
120mm intake, not used. (covers unused HDD bays)

So I would want one where??

For best airflow?

Thor's Hammer is more powerful than the H50. It keeps my 955be c3 (OCed to 3.8ghz, cpu-nb 2900MHz) at 45c (idle) and 58-60c (3hrs+ full load using p95). For stock speeds, thor keeps my cpu at 39c idle and 48c full load. H70 can be compared to the Thor.
I am using a sigle low end cooler master 120mm fan to push air through the thor (south to north).

Most people use it there, but have it sucking air from the inside of the case and blowing it out of the back. Then you'll have 2 exhausts.

So your pulling the warm air, from inside the case, over the radiator, and spitting the hot air out, as a exhuast?

Just clarifying.

But wouldnt that mean the radiator has hotter temps than if im pulling cold in over it, as a intake ?
