Go with a thermaltake true, megahalems, or heck even the coolermaster hyper 212 would be a good choice. The h50 is just a big waste of money, like the TEC powered v10.
I already purchased yesterday so it's kinda late now.. I considered the exhaust spot as well but I also purchased an antec 1200 which has two exhaust fans so I'm going to use the bottom one.. I'm going to flip the fan over so it's drawing air in, mount the h50 to that so I'll have a push pull setup... Just figured it will draw cool air into the h50 this way..

I've read good and bad about it.. I'll give it a shot and let everyone know how it's working. If it sucks, live and learn I guess...
