Just swapped out my push-pull Venom with an H50 and thought I'd share a few notes. 1. Idle temp is the same. 2. Noise is worse, somehow. 3. Load temp is about 1-2 degrees worse. Hard for me to figure out if it was worth installing. I knew it wasn't a top cooler but I was hoping at least that because of my push-pull being aimed right at the back exhaust fan that there'd be some room for noise improvement if I removed that turbulent air situation. Was wrong on that count. My next hope was for improved performance because I figured my venom was never performing as well as it should, but I'm starting to think my i7 is just hotter than average. My last hope was that it'd be easier on my motherboard because the venom's massive pressure has been known to cause problems with memory stability. I have no idea how to test that, just gives me some piece of mind without that 80lbs of pressure. If anything I'll keep it installed because I'm lazy and sick of reseating that venom.
