Hi um just wondering what do you guys think of the h100 vs Water 2.0 Extreme

Water 2.0 Extreme http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

h100 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

i'm upgrading from a evo 212 to a water cooler will there be at list 10-15C decrees from a 212 to a h100 or Water 2.0 extreme on a i7 2600k/i5 2500k .Do you guys think it will fit on a RAIDMAX AEOLUS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...(Computer%20Cases%20-%20ATX%20Form)-_-Raidmax-_-11156252&AID=10440897&PID=3938566&SID=

i also feel like buying a new case so i wont need to upgrade in the future, any suggestion 150$ max budget and on a liquid cooler 130$ max budget.

thanks for the help.

No problem!

I would say go with a high-end Air cooler and be done otherwise you could try a Kit from XSPC.

Ya and I am not sure if the H100 or 2.0 would fit??? I have no experience with your case...Sorry!

You might be able to mount the rad from the XSPC kit outside the case it has pre drilled holes for the tubing to exit and enter??? This would give it all the fresh air it wants. Just an idea...

I thought a new case was on the cards?
Either way an Xspc kit is miles better than an allinone like H100,
Expandable, upgradeable, and better temps

Had a quick look at the case, a 240 rad should fit in there easily, I'll find better pics once I get home in the morning to check though

Both of those coolers are essentially the same, and neither is worth the cost. To add, Thermaltake has never made anything good when it comes to water or liquid cooling.

I never checked the links Rubix, at work on mobile :-)
@Op, thermatake water=EVIL!
Avoid like you owe it money, but even the H100 won't give you the 10'c drop you are after, a lot is dependant on ambient temps

And theres some great rigs in the W/c gallery to scope out and see how things fit into cases

i looked at the wins dragon liked the side panel cos i can add 4 120mm fan but i still kinda like the Antec DF-85 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower witch 1 would pull out more air? if i do get a new case should i go with this rasa kit http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11743/ex-wat-159/XSPC...
or something bigger like this http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12222/ex-wat-162/XSPC... and if i stay with the current case i should get the rasa rs240 ? thanks for all your help :) .

The Df is another good case, its up to you which you like the look of really, once you get to a certain pricepoint, most cases perform very closely,
And if you went for a 360 kit it gives you more headroom to add a gfx card into the loop in future

i will just go with the wins dragon and the 360 kit , what are the chance of a 360 kit to leak ? because i will have 2 gtx 670 cards in there as well .

If you check the sticky out up top, take your time and do things right, there is no reason that it could, or would leak,
You may find a 360 tough to squeeze inside there, it could be tight on the front panel (which is mounted on the top)
had you considered a topmount for the rad?
It requires a bit of modding but nothing too heavy :-)

When I say on top, I mean like this,
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/forum2.php?config=t...
I don't mean inside at the top, I mean actually on top of the case, so if you feed the tubing through the grommets at the back, or can drill two 19mm holes underneath the rads ports then you're fine
Thank you for B.a. and post back anything else we can help with,
P.S. as a Rider owner, I expect a build log with pics ok? :)
