The H50 is good for clocks up to about 4.0Ghz maybe a bit higher depending on fan setup.

Never heard of the Cogage arrow, so thats out.

CMV8 is a good H/S, but not up to stratch

The Megahalems is a HUGE H/S but its also very very good.

Personally I like the H50 purely because its a smaller H/S and it looks damn sexy

oh yea, if u mod ur h50, (i did this 2 days ago). add you own clear tubing, ur guaranteed temps drops. i got 8 degrees from full load

Yeah but, the reason im going h20 is cause i have a MUCH less chance to leak, if i mod it............ the risk goes up....

if u can get some high power fans, go for the h50.

EDIT: the arrows looks like the noctua d14. the case can fit all of them. just got for the one u think looks the best for you.

It sucks? are you high?
Sucks for it's price but it's not a bad cooler.

Just make sure you mount the H/S properly by following the instructions and have the fans going one way (have them both sucking air in from outside of your case going into your case)

The Thermal paste that comes with the H50 is pretty sweet stuff as well, so unless you plan on lapping your h/s then you'll be fine.

It'll be fine for you to over clock on stock fans up to about 3.6 - 3.8

anything more and you need more fanage

Just send it back, to be honest if you got a C0 I would be shocked.

and its the SLBEJ as well, look out for that and then you know you're getting a D0

EDIT
Get 2 of these You have to get 2 because if you mix and match fans in this setup it will

A. Reduce cooling
B. Reduce efficiency
C. Make it louder

One more thing though, will there be enough connection sockets on the MB for the fans, the ram fan etc etc?
