Hello. Ive been wanting to getting a gaming rig up for quite sometime now, but as far as cooling my system, im having some issues. Ive been looking at the NXZT Kraken x60, Corsair 100i, and the Swiftech H220, all closed water loops. Simply because i am a novice at all this stuff, and an open loop just looks like way too much work. And im thinking that air cooling just might not be as powerful enough. Anyways, please leave your comments with an appropriate explanation to back up your claim.

air cooling can do better than closed loop. noctua nh-d14 is the best aftermarket cpu cooler, and it uses air cooling

As far as performance goes, the cooler is amazing. An i7 3770k at 4.5 running intel burn in test is in the high 60's.

Just make sure it fits. I bought the cooler without enough research, and because of this I can't use my top-most PCI slot. Check their site for motherboard and RAM compatibility.
