Which AIO liquid cooler would be best in a NZXT Phantom case?

I am looking to upgrade to liquid cooling, but I am unsure where to start with a AIO liquid cooler. Right now in my NZXT Phantom case I have the two 200mm fans mounted on the top which I like since it keeps the inside of my case very cool. So if I want to use a dual 120mm radiator which one should I go with and would I still be able to keep my case fairly cool with the two top fans gone and only the radiator in its place? Or would it be better to go with a single 120mm cooler so that I can keep the top two fans? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

  1. You should go for the corsair H100i.i have it and its AMAZING!i have my i5 3570k overclocked to 4.5 and at the lowest fan speed it keeps my temp at 60 to 65
  2. Best answer
    Please list what CPU you have and if you are going to overclock and if so how high?

    For a duel 120mm the H105 is a good choice.

    For a single 120mm a Thermaltake Water 3.0 Pro is great.
  3. Ou should go for the Corsair H100i. I have it and it keeps my temps around 60 to 65 C
    My i5 3570k is overclocked to 4.5 ghz and the fans on the H100i are at their lowest speeds.

    H105 beats the H100i, of course not by much.

    I am planning to get a i7-4820k and I would like to do some overclocking, but I do not know how much exactly yet. The main thing that I am concerned with is if the h105 will fit in the NZXT Phantom. I know that it accepts 240 mm radiators, but I do not know if the thickness will work? Also do you think taking away two 200 mm fans for top exhaust would change case temps a lot?

    NZXT site says it will fit.


    Temps will change but nothing huge, if you have a GPU or GPUs there will be fine.

    So my average temps in my case right now are around 66-70F with the two top exhaust fans. Do you think that will reach a lot higher than that if i replace the top fans with the cpu cooler? I would also have a side fan blowing air on to the motherboard and other components.

    Temps wont go up to much since you'll have the H105 blowing air out and that side intake will really help. Also what GPUs do you have?

    I only have one 780ti with the acx cooler.

    That GPU can go up to 95° so it'll be fine. I would also recommend you use a fan in the front to keep your harddrive cooled.

    My GPU has actually been as high a 106F but no higher. And I actually have a front 140mm in the front and two 120mm on the side panel blowing on the hard drives. The only thing I was worried about is the motherboard getting too hot because I switch the two top fans.
