I am not sure which to get, with the H100i it is great bc it is liquid cooling, but the zalman I can get 3 fans on the same heatsink for a lot cheaper. Which will give me a better price to perf value? I have a cooler master 430 black case.

  1. H100i
  2. This might help you decide.

    Basically if your on LGA1155, go for the Zalman, theres little difference between it and the H100i. If your on AM3+ or LGA2011 with its more powerful (in the literal sense) CPU's, then the H100i is the better bet as it can deal with the extra heat output.
  3. Thanks a lot, I think im going to go with the zalman because it is much cheaper. The reason I liked the h100i is it would control fans through software, but I found some cheap 5.25'' fan controllers do that for me, still coming in under the cost of the H100i
