Im wanting to get the h80i, before I buy it i just want to hear what other people think. Is it worth it? or is just better to stay with what I have now. I cant use the h100 or any of the dual 120mm coolers due to my antec 1100 not having really anywhere to mount it.

Thanks.

Is the 212 + not keeping up with your cpu? Do you need additional cooling?

Its fine it never goes over 58-60C when running prime and low-mid 40s while gaming. I've heard that the h80i was able to keep it 8-10C cooler and others say it doesnt make a difference. I'm just wanting to hear from someone that knows about it or actually has the cooler to know if its worth getting.

Best solution

if your cpu never crosses 60oC its fine with the 212, even temps 10 degrees higher are well below the limits. an H80i is a waste of money for those temps...
