Starting up the computer went well and after a bit of bubbling and spluttering from the H50 I noticed the whole thing was significantly quieter than previously, everything was installed correctly and there were no leaks, here are the temperature results, before and after:
Before temps using the OCZ Vendetta 2 with Arctic Silver 5:
After temps using Corsair H50 with Arctic Cooling MX-3:
As you can see there was some improvement and my idle temps are finally down to a reasonable amount, my graphics card core temp is also down a significant amount.
Since I installed the H50 I have also overclocked my CPU to 3.48Ghz and it is rock solid with +5C temps on idle and load, it certainly has a powerful cooling ability and if you have air conditioning in your home it helps a great deal as it is highly dependent on the ambient temperature of your room, my next post will hopefully be about installing 2 HR-03 Plus graphics card coolers in SLi effectively provided I can still find one around.
Update 31/12/2009: I have recently replaced the Corsair fan that comes with the kit with the fan that comes with the OCZ Vendetta 2 as it is theoretically more powerful, my temps @ 3.62Ghz are as follows:
As you can see they are almost the same temps that I got at stock speed/voltage and 20C of temp difference between idle and load at that speed is pretty amazing
