    Anyone using the Corsair's H50? What it is like? I am seriously considering one for my i7920. Would I be better off getting a Megahalems? I currently have an IFX-14 but I am looking to get something smaller without compromising cooling performance. Also only looking to spend around the price for a top end air cooler.

    @3GHz I idle at 40c (70f(21c) room temp) , doesn't go above 55 on load.

    Thats pretty good. Problem I have also is my IFX-14 is not perfectly flat and my temps suffer a little. I honestly do not see the point in lapping it when I can sell it on and get something smaller and make room on my mobo for more memory sticks.

    Also thinking in my case I could change around the direction of the fans and may even get the ambient temp down enough to allow my second 4890 back into action.
