  1. The fact you dont want an air heatsink means your going to have to use CLC cooling, which is pretty against what your after in the value segment.
    Get a H80i at least, a Swiftech H220 if you can afford it and have the room in the case to mount it. Any CLC below a H80i isnt worth buying, air heatsinks just offer far better value for your money, and even at the high end of CLC's they do.

    How do you feel about the corsair h100i? ( still open to more suggestions
  4. How do you feel about the corsair h100i? < Awesome cooler.
  5. Its a good cooler, its only real downside is a poor value against equivalent air heatsinks. If your willing to look past that or think that its aesthetic value makes up for it, then its a good choice.

    Have a look at the Swiftech H220, its like a CLC in that it comes pre-assembled and filled, but uses proper water-cooling parts which you can expand into a custom loop later on if you wanted. Performs better than a H100i as well.
  6. How about some fact to back opinion lol. Here is an example of what manochalk is talking about. http://www.anandtech.com/show/5054/corsair-hydro-series-h60-h80-and-h100-reviewed/5
  7. There's fact in what I'm saying, just unsubstantiated is all :P.
