It's better if they match, because even at the same RPMs they can have major differences in CFM and Static Pressure; and SP is more important than CFM for rad fans. If you want to spend the money, Akasa Vipers are a great way to go, otherwise, any good quality fan with a decent SP should work fine. I'd also recommend using a splitter with a molex power connect, so both fans can be run off the same (CPU Fan) header; that way they'll maintain the same speed, and power usage won't be an issue.
hmm that's good to know. my birthday's coming up in about a month so i think some decent fans would be a good idea. And thermal paste i definitely need because i looked at it in it's current state and it doesn't look so good. i was just using the default paste from the H50.

also my voltages and speeds are as follows:

BCLK: 195
CPU Voltage: 1.325
IMC Voltage: 1.35
DRAM Bus Voltage: 1.6

As for your temperatures, they pretty much relate directly to your vcore. Make sure when you apply thermal paste on your cpu, do a thin line across the cpu - since quad cores seem to like that more.
you mean like one thin line in the middle (horizontally or vertically?) and then just squish it down?

also will regular old adhesive removal do the trick for removing the paste? or should i buy actual thermal paste remover?

Use 93 - 97% rubbing alcohol (the higher the % the better) - but as has been stated, the thermal paste that the cooler came with is fine, its more your fan setup that you need to worry about. Also make sure that it is in a place that can get good airflow, and set your vcore as low as possible to minimize heat.

about how low SHOULD my vcore be, ideally?

lowest while staying stable.
test with prime 95 for errors.

alright. luckily i have time to fiddle around since i don't have any homework also, i've been using linX for stress testing. is that alright? i just like it because it's faster than prime95 but i dont know if it gives the same kinds of results.

No, no, no.
First of all: what is your ambient temperature?

The H50 is water cooling. Water cooling is highly dependent on ambient temperature because it uses a radiator.

1) Push/pull with identical fans will HELP.
2) Do not replace the stock thermal paste. That stuff is shin etsu x23 which is the best TIM out there.
3) Make sure pump is running full speed.
4) Make sure pump is mounted correctly.

haha, i was having the same problems just like you buddy, i removed the stock thermal pad, and you can use the alcohol, or you can buy you some articlean, it's 2 white bottles, one with a white top and another with a blue top, it's from the same makers as artic silver, and one is to clean remove the paste, and the other is to purify the surface, both go on the cpu, and the heatsink, then i first used the white thermal paste, i bought some from best buy, and my temps sucked, then i removed the paste, and used some grey paste that came with a coolermaster n520 cooler, then bought another fan, a coolermaster green led fan i think this one, COOLER MASTER R4-C2R-20AC-GP 120mm Case Fan for push pull with the stock corsair fan, gonna change it out too but later and now my temps are awesome!!!! my temps are 4 ghz @ 46 full load, running folding multicore client. just got those fans untill i can get some yate loons, or sythe kaze

hope this helped a little buddy

when i'm not doing anything i'm sitting around 37-40
also it seems like one of my cores (core #2) is like 5 degrees lower than the other ones >.> i'm running linX right now and my max temps are 74, 73, 70, 77

EDIT: but i'm slowly lowering my voltage with turboV and sometimes i'll sit around the mid 50's but i think that's just because linX is finishing a run.

What.
No.
Ambient temperature. I'm not asking about your CPU temps.
