Would an H80i outperform my current HS?

So I've currently got a Thermalright Silver arrow with a single Xigmatek 1255 in the middle as my CPU cooling.

Would a Corsair H80i outperform it? Or are there better ways to cool my CPU?

You already have one of the best air coolers. Is there a reason you're looking to switch? Why do you only have one fan on it now?

My RAM dimms are vengeance, so there isnt enough clearance for a front fan. Also noise is an issue, but i might set all my fans to low and see what my temps are.

Actually I just bought an Aerocool Shark 140mm to replace the Xigmatek, I'll probably move the Xigmatek to the third slot on the HS. So it'll go


[Case Exhaust Xigmatek] <-- [Xigmatek]<--[Heatsink]<-[Aerocool]<--[Heatsink]<--[Intake]

Mixing fans isn't a good idea unless you are sure that they are running at the same cfm and fan speed. Otherwise you can stress one or more fans by creating a pressure differential.

Q: H80i>Silver Arrow?
A: nope its the other way round.

you could get a Kaze Jyuni for the front but you're much better now than shelling out on an Hxx series cooler.

Thanks man,

I just checked my temps
@ idle with low fans. 33 degrees.
In Guild wars 2 with low settings, 40 degrees.
GW2 at full settings, 47 degrees.

Going to get a 3-4 pin adapted for this Xigmatek and put it on the side of my case. I might get another Aerocool Shark 140mm (Green) for my heatsink down the track.
