  1. I would not get an h100i. Everything else looks very good. Some things like RAM and CPU are overkill for gaming. An i5 and 8gb RAM would perform the same. But, if you want to go ahead and spend the money, it couldn't hurt for games way out in the future. Games will likely never use more than 8gb RAM, but hyper threading may get used more in the next 3-5 years.
  2. i choose H100i because i want to fill the top fans. any suggestion ? between H60 and h100i.
  3. Neither. Closed loop water coolers are a fad. They don't cool much if any better than air coolers are make alot of noise. I would get a good air cooler for sue. Closed loop coolers are more for show.
  4. how about the new Coolermaster V8GTS?
  5. im thinking of 1 rear exhaust 2 top 140mm exhaust...
  6. Best answer
    Very overpriced and not the best performance. Take a look at the Noctua NH-D14. Best air cooler out there pretty much. If it will fit in that microATX case, it will be amazing.

    Use a front intake, one rear exhaust and ONE top exhaust on the furthest back slot. If you have an air cooler (blows from front to back) you do not want to steal its air with a top exhaust fan in the front slot.
  8. Thanks for your help!. im going to research the Noctua NH-D14. :D
  9. Awesome! It really is the best air cooler for the money. It looks great and outperforms almost all the closed loop water coolers. Make sure you get low-profile RAM so it doesn't interfere with the cooler.

    I'm always glad to help!
