212 Hyper
412 Slim
H100i

Thanks in advance,
Mike.

  1. Best of the three, Corsair H100i. Be sure your case can support it. But if you're looking to overclock +0.4GHz, then the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (not by Corsair) will suffice.
  2. The H100i is definitely going to be better for overclocking. Water cooling will almost always beat air cooling, unless you get a Noctua NH-D14. I hate the stock fans that come with the H100i. I picked up a pair of Corsair SP120's for my H100i and they work very well. I have my 8350 at 4.8Ghz 1.52 volts. Your CPU might be a better overclocker, or it might be worse. Just hope that you get a nice binned chip.
  3. @MikeYFItalian: Just want to correct you on one thing for the benefit of OP who will be reading your post. H100i is a liquid cooler for the CPU. A real water cooling setup done right will beat air cooling, including the Noctua NH-D14. The Noctua NH-D14 is a high-end CPU air cooler and can compete against H100i almost evenly. But that is a far cry from saying it can stand up against a water-cooled build.

    Howdy,

    Well.. with the FX8350, I am afraid it will run too hot with the 212..
    But since it's only about 0.5Ghz, should it suffice & keep it cool?
    Really want it under 60 at least.

    Thanks!

    Yes; the Hyper 212 EVO will be fine at 4.5GHz overclock on the FX-8350. I wouldn't push it further than that however. I would opt for a high-end cooler in that case.
