Hello I am fitting a i5 4670k in a Corsair Air 540 and was wondering if I should go with a Fan CPU cooler or a Liquid CPU cooler like the corsair H100i. Wich one do you guys think is the best, most quiet and most performant wich can fit in the case?

Best solution

H100i, it wont' put so much strain on the PCB of the motherboard :)

lol no matter if its liquid or air, they both need fans :p  that is a good cooler, but not as good as liquid cooling units :)

Liquid cooling will give you the "Best" cooling, but you should ask yourself what your budget is and what kind of over clocking you want to take your CPU to. If that case will fit a 280mm water cooling radiator then the Corsair H110 is on top of the charts. If your looking for a mild over clock like 4.2-4.4 you will be fine with air cooling or a smaller radiator type water cooler like the H80i or H90 if you have a 140mm fan slot.

The coolermaster hyper 212 is a great cooler for it's price, I currently have it with my 3570k @ 4.5GHz.

yep to that one, for an air cooler it is the most value you can get unless some one just hands you one lol
