Here is my build, but at the moment I'm going for the h100i, but according to many it's over-rated and doesn't cool as well as other brands. No matter what water cooling system I buy, the stock fans will be replaced with Noctuas.

I would agree that the H100i might be a bit overrated (I have one), but it gets the job done. At max fan speeds it has very good cooling potential (around performance of the best air coolers), and at ~800 rpm it's very quiet, but still has enough cooling to keep my 8350 in the 45 degrees range while gaming.

If you are going to be mega-overclocking, yes, there are better alternatives.

That actually sounds really good, 45 degrees with the FX - 8xxx series is sweet. How about when the CPU is under full load?

I currently run @4.4GHz undervolted 2 steps. I can try to see how it'll manage under P95 tonight with fans ~800rpm. I'll also crank it up to 4.8 and run some P95 and give you the core/socket temps tomorrow. (this will obviously be with the max fan speeds)

Ok here goes. Standard set up is 4.4GHz @ 1.375V (H100i)

  • Battlefield 3 1080p ultra/very high fans @ 875 rpm = 43 core 49 socket
  • Prime 95 fans @ 875 = 58 core 66 socket after 3 minutes (stopped)
  • Prime 95 fans @ 2500 = 47 core 61 socket (assumed approximate equilibrium @ 10mn)

4.8Ghz @ 1.437V (If you want higher than 4.8, you'll probably need something beefier than the H100i)

  • Prime 95 fans @ 2500 = 58 core 66 socket (also 10 mn, but these temps are typically my limit)

I think I would be OCing around that range nothing too much; I'd say that the h100i is pretty good for me :) You changed my opinion, also did you find it easy to install?

Easy enough (easier than an 212 Evo imo), obviously just my issue that I mentioned fitting it in the Fractal Define R4, but if you have plenty of clearance, I think it would be very easy.

750D is big enough right? And also they both seem hard to install but watching more and more vids it looks easier ever video

I would take a look at the Cooler Master Glacer 240L. I have seen many sites and reviews praising this product. Apparently is a collaboration between Swiftech and Cooler Master.

Will do! How is it installing that thing? It can't be too complicated :)
