Hey there, I'm building a new pc and stuck between some options.

Option 1: HAF X 942 + NOCTUA NH-D14
Option 2: Carbide 500R + H100
Option 3: Carbide 500R + NOCTUA NH-D14

Which do you thing is best to go with considering performance/silence?

Option 3:

Although keep in mind any case with fan mounts on the side and top is going to give off more noise. Corsair has been making some solid cases recently too. Lots of airflow options in the case it seems.

I prefer air cooling over the all in one cpu water coolers. I can't stand that little click sound some of the pumps make.

Not to mention that most good air coolers perform as well as closed loop coolers.
