Liquid cooler for i7 4770k?

So I am planning on upgrading to an Asus Maximus VI Hero and an i7 4770k since one of the my PCIE slots is broken on my motherboard. Anyways I was looking around for a liquid cooler for the i7 and I think I have narrowed it down to the h100i, the Kraken x60, or the Swiftech h220 (if I can find one in the USA). Which one do you guys recommend, or are there better ones out there? I will most likely replace the stock fans with some Noctuas. I also saw that Linus from Linus Tech Tips added his gpu to the loop for the Swiftech h220, can the kraken or the h100i do that?

    The Swiftech H220 is Sooooo much better than all of those other coolers that you listed. It will get you maximum low temps, as you can OC amazingly easily up to 4.8GHz with CPU Cooler such as this one.
    If you cannot find the Swiftech H220 in the USA then go with 2nd best: Corsair H100i or H110.

    NCIX USA had 2 in stock yesterday, and I was thinking of getting one, but now they are out of stock for "3-6 weeks" :(

    thats very unlucky . . . If you can wait then wait till they have some in stock other wise the Corsair Hydro H100i and H110 are almost as good as the swiftech h220.
