For the Corsairs, any one recommend me better fans?
Has anybody had any problems with any of these coolers or are aware of?

for 4.2GHz, you might get away with the Hyper 212 evo, but from your list, the NH-D14 will probably get you the furthest, after that you have to get into custom loops, which are expensive, and require a bit of maintenance

Are Corsairs CLC not worth it?

not really, the NH-D14 is close to the performance of the H100, and is cheaper (by a bit atleast)

None of those are really 'ultimate'- you would need to consider subambient cooling like LN2, liquid helium, or even watercooling.

This vote is essentially for air cooling, was that your discussion?

Yes rubix. Im not after the best CPU cooler and the highest OC i can get.
What i meant was, between the four ive listed, which is the best or is there any other that you guys would recommend? And also if there is any minor or serious problems you guys know or have encountered with these coolers.

Your overclock might be a bit too hot for the Hyper 212 Evo. I would recommend the Noctua. I used the H100 before and it wasn't much better than my Hyper 212 Plus but was $80 more expensive. If you choose water, go custom and get way better temps then the H100 could get you.

^you probably installed it wrong then, coz the h100 should be slightly ahead of the NH-D14

Understood, but then that leaves the title of your thread a bit misleading compared to the actual interpretation being discussed. That's the basis for the post I made.
