Would it be worth it to mod the H50? I think what happened was that the tubes were bent. One thing about the H50 is that the tubes are more like hard plastic which in turn makes it hard to place without bending it too much in my case.
As far as the chipset on my MOBO, I guess I'll keep searching for something compatable. I could have sworn I've seen mentions of Swifttech making universal chipset blocks. Btw I am new to water cooling. What I do know so far as what I need for cooling a cpu and components is that I need a water block, pump, resevoir, hoses and something else. lol. Barbs are what connect the hoses right?
