Best cpu liquid cooler

I just built my new system with the new ivy bridge i7 3770k and got the Asrock motherboard z77 extreme 6 . I plan to overclock a

bit until maybe 4.5 . I was looking at the H100 but not sure if i want liquid cooling because i heard it sometimes leaks

so i don't know what to get and i saw the 212 and Noctua 14 its so terrible big i think the motherboard will not handle it.

I am on a budget so if there is a good heatsink that i should get please let me know.

Thanks

  1. Your motherboard can handle any mainstream air cooler, including the D14. The H100 shouldn't leak, as it's a premade closed loop.
  2. The H100 is the best of the closed loop systems at the moment, and most aftermarket Heatsinks come with supporting backplates to help your mobo take the strain but Kaja is right, your mobo can handle the weight

    Any of the closed loop prefilled liquid coolers will work if you have the space in your case. They are not much more expensive than a top line air cooler, and they are quieter and cooler.
  4. depending your on a budget get the 212 evo and a second fan or a d14 is really good. I use the 212 evo and have no issue running my 2500k at 4.5ghz

    The H100 is one of the few that has a 240 rad, the lesser variants H50/60/70 only have a single 120 rad, even in pushpull they aren't a valid option over aircooling, and can be outperformed by top line aircoolers.

  8. Lol... Moto you know dam well is no such thing as good closed loop what for noise and cooling performance on par with silver arrow which cost a whooping $35 less
  9. Thats why I phrased it,
    'The H100 is the best of the closed loop systems at the moment'
    I don't personally like Fisherprice allinones as you know, but if someone is going to buy one, it may as well be the best of the bunch, and throw pushpull fans on it (preferably with shrouds as well)
    and yes,
    ' the lesser variants H50/60/70 only have a single 120 rad, even in pushpull they aren't a valid option over aircooling, and can be outperformed by top line aircoolers'

    I mentioned the fact that aircoolers can (and often do) beat them for performance/noise/price
    I'm not a fan of allinones, but I'd hate people to write off W/c because of a bad experience with one,
