Here is a link to my set up-

I would like to do some light overclocking and I think that water cooling would be better for overclocking. i have looked into the h100i and decided against it because it doesn't fit too well in my case without push/pull.(which I'm not sure even helps much). I am thinking about the h80i but i have not decided.

Anyway sorry for the paragraph! I just need a recommendation for cooling for my setup with light overclocking.

Thanks in advance!!

Edit: I have also recently read that the h100i can clash with the ripjaw ram I am getting. so i am leaning toward a h80i or similar model. still open to suggestions

Unless you have the 'smaller' phantom, I have the original & the H100i fits fine, that said it not very different than my original Hyper 212 evo. I user the original fans on top of the case as one set . System is plenty coolI just happen to like the look of the Corsair (leaves the middle of the system less cluttered)

Thanks for the answer! After looking into it more I am deciding to get a second top 200mm fan and a 140mm fan for the front. still have not decided on which water cooling i would like to use. I don't want to have to do any modding to make something fit but i want a good cooler for around $100 or less. Any Suggestions?

the deciding factor for me (I had looked up several like the H100i) was Microcenter near me had it in stock and on sale.
