My System Specs

Default

Well... The clicking resumed. Not loud but enough to make me pull the H50 for an RMA. I got one, I'll see how that goes.

Mixed joy however in that I bought the cooler master hyper 212+ to keep the rig running while the H50 is away and as I suspected it's doing a better job. So I will be leaving the $20 cooler master in as opposed to replacing it with the $70 H5 when it returns from RMA.

One design flaw in using the H50 as an intake is that it pulls in all the dust and hair against the radiator which eventually blocks it. That doesn't happen with the hyper 212 since it's inside the case and in the direction of exhaust. So IMHO the hyper 212+ is a better and definately cheaper solution.

Thanks again for all the help guys! Greg.
