I see a lot of threads about deliding but I'm very worried and I WON'T try it.
So the only solution is getting the best cooler possible. I will be overclocking it and using heavy loads so i need something with superior cooling capabilities.Custom loops are out of the question so please recommend one I ca readily buy. Thank you!

Swiftech H220 > Corsair H100 (2-3 Celcius degress more) > Pahnteks ph-tc14pe (1 degree more) > Noctua NH-U14S (2 degress more).

Currently the list goes like this:
- NZXT Kraken x60
- Corsair H110
- Corsair H100i
- Pahnteks ph-tc14pe / BeQuiet Dark Rock 2 Pro
- Noctua NH-U14S


In theory, the Swiftech H220 is on the same level as the Corsair H110. But I´ve had some bad experiences with it which is why I excluded it from the list.

I wouldn´t bother with single fan AiO coolers like the Corsair H80i or NZXT Kraken x40 and the like.

If you absolutely want an air cooler, you also might want to have a look at the Prolimatech Genesis which - for me - was the best air cooler I´ve had so far. But you really need to have the case and RAM compatibility.

I want superior cooling performance but would like to stay away from water cooling. My friends water cooler leaked (closed loop) and destroyed his 760.
What do you guys think about the Noctua NH-D14

I would go with Phanteks. It's slightly better and comes in variety of colors. I generally don't like Noctua products.
Take RAM clearance into consideration, when going with either one of these two.

As for air cooling:
I´d go for the Phanteks, the Dark Rock or Prolimatech Genesis.
