"For example, the lowest noise from Corsair H100 with two fans rotating at their minimal speed is equal to the highest noise from Thermalright Archon. Therefore, going back to the results chart we can conclude that at about the same level of noise the best air cooler is 14°C more efficient than the new Corsair H100."

Looks like NH-D14, Silver Arrow and Archon continue to be much better values at $70 (well the Archon is >$80 with 2 fans), and quieter!

If you can fit them, sure. If not, WC is better by far, because cooler not installed doesn't do its job at all, does it?

cooling your CPU is not why you want water cooling,
its for cooling your videocard.

the CPU has plenty of room around it for a big cooler. a GPU however does not, and then the watercooling can help by transporting that heat to a area that does have plenty of space, reducing noise and temperature.

"the CPUhas plenty of room around it for a big cooler."

Speak for yourself, smaller cases exist too.

Hi ,

I bought a x Antec 1200V3 case and a Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler. Now the supplier is saying that the cooler does not fit. Can you provide instructions how to fit the Cooler in the Antec case?

Hi I guess you have managed to fit your H100 by now. I bought my 1200 v3 and fitted it in 20 minutes with a little bit of modding. The holes at the back of the case where the fans are need to be slotted approx 5mm towards the bottom of case. Install the radiator with the hoses at the bottom and the fans between the case and radiator. The tank is thinner on top than it is at the bottom.

Does the radiator interfere with the top PCI-E of your motherboard? I have the Twelve Hundred v3 with a P8Z68-V PRO GEN 3 board and I wana make sure I can accomodate the radiator without blocking my PCI-E slots

For anyone curious about buying this unit, I installed the Corsair H100 after using the NH-D14 for about two years. I do get better temps, but I admit replacing the Corsair fans by 4 Noctua NF-P12 since I'm picky when it comes to sound. My only concern is that if the pump fails, and it will one day, the cpu could fry if the thermal protection don't kick in fast enough. With the NF-D14, three fans would have had to stop and even so, It's massive heatsink might keep the 2600k temps within range helped by the case proper ventilation.

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing blog that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free.firefly box
