I am building my new system that will have an FX-8320 or 8350. I have 2 coolers in mind as I will be overclocking and I want it to be quiet as well as I'm putting it all into an Antec P280 quiet case. I am trying to decide between the Corsair H100i or the Prolimatech Megahalems. I have done research on both and there are a mix good and bad reviews about both, so I am asking you guys for your input. I'm leaning more towards the Prolimatech, as even with a fan it will be cheaper than the H100i, but at the same time, I don't know if it'll have the cooling power of the H100.

Before anyone even asks, I'm not even considering Intel for my build as I do a lot of HD video editing, which is among the FX's bread and butter, so to speak. That and socket 1155 is dead.

I'd say for the best air cooler the be quiet dark rock pro http://www.scan.co.uk/products/be-quiet!-dark-rock-pro-2-cpu-cooler-with-120mm-and-135mm-silent-wings-pwm-fans
its a beast of a cooler and whisper quiet but be careful if you go for ram with a big heatsink like vengance or dominator it won't fit under the cooler generally so go for something like the corsair xms3

I have both of the coolers bigcyco1 mentioned,and both perform about the same,very slight edge to Noctua.Both very easy to install.
