Default NZXT M59 with Corsair H50?

I'm wanting to build a PC with the NZXT M59 case, the Corsair H50 CPU cooler. I've heard people mention that they don't fit well, but it was unclear.
I want to use both top 120mm fan slots in the M59, and I was wondering if the H50's radiator would prevent me from doing so? Thanks

Do you already have the H50? If not, get yourself a good tower heatsink. The only use I see for H50/H70s are in MicroATX/ITX cases where space is limited for tall heatsinks.

Nope, I've not got either yet, the air cooler I was going to get before I changed my mind to te H50 is the Akasa AK-CCX-4002HP Venom CPU Cooler (Socket LGA775/LGA1155/LGA1156/LGA1366/AM2/AM3). Is this any good, or could you recommend a better one? My processor is the i5 2500k which I intend to overclock to around 4.5GHz.

How much do you have to spend?

After some quick searching, the Akasa Venom isn't a bad performer. I'm from the states so I'm not sure how prices will compare, but I would also look into the Cooler Master V6 and Thermalright Venemous-X.
