Looking Good. Have you used that cooler before? It look's like the ticket.
I took a look at a review of the cooler on PC Perspective, a video really and I'm pretty impressed with the capabilities of it.

No this is my first ever build, I picked this over the [V8 Cooler] as of some of the youtube reviews say its amazing, and they can get 4ghz with no trouble on a i7 920

I have experimented with the H50 on my rig during my initial build and I can attest that...

- pulling fresh air into the case across the rad cools the CPU more effectively (by about 3 degrees for me)
- pulling air into the case only raises my case temp by 1 C

- pushing air out of the case does not really lower case temps by much, about 1 C as I said
- pushing warmer air across the rad DOES reduce the result in higher CPU temps

The complaints about pulling air into the case are grossly overstated. Yes, I admit that at first I thought it would be better to blow out of the case, but after testing it in my CM 690 case, I have concluded that Corsair's standard install is perferable. However, it doesn't hurt that I have 2 120mm fans at the top of my case and another side panel 120mm pulling fresh air in as well.

Cheers!
H50_Canuck :)

Its better to pull in cold air in then suck hot air in from the case

oh wow. I also thought it was better to suck the warm air out, but I guess when you dont use air cooling, it doesnt really matter. Switching my fans around to blow air in lowered my prime 95 temps like 4-5 degrees. Crazy! thanks for clearing that up!
