id keep the h50, but that case has poor airflow for it

look for something with better airflow, bottom mount psu, and top fan
thermaltake v3 can be found for around $30-40
as well as the nzxt gamma

edit: nevermind, that case is good, i was thinkin the 330 series cases

add another fan for p/p on the radiator

i tried everything, add fan for push and pull, move radiator to the top, and reinstall

but it's stick on 53 (push and pull) and 56 (push only) with p95 running
it's worse than my old TX3 my TX3 only have 51-52 max

my processor is 955 BE with stock clock

That's oddly high. I don't think my 955 ever got that high even on the stock cooler. Have you checked your thermal paste?

are you monitoring your pump speed ? screen shot of hwmonitor or speedfan or whatever
are the cooling lines totally kink free ? ( no excessive bending) can you put up a pic ? might make it easier

I literally bought 5, yes, five different H50s from five different stores thinking that not all H50s are the same (extracted from the idea "not all CPUs are the same") but it wasn't the case in the H50s - they are all the same.

I ended up returning all of them and went to a Megahalem for my 930 rig.

Now that I have a 2600k, I still bite the dust and got an H70.

Difference: night and day.

I'm not saying buy the H70 since you're still fresh with your frustration from its predecessor - just sharing my experience.

I like aircooling. Low maintenance, cheap. I'm just done with the idea of putting a huge brick in my case.

According to the reviews the Tt Frio and the CM V6 are both excellent coolers.

An example is here.
