im soon to be building a gaming rig for myself, but need help on picking a CPU cooler. I WILL BE OVERCLOCKING!

The 2 CPU Coolers im trying to decide on are the:

- Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-r...

-- or --

- Corsair H100 Liquid Non Maintenance CPU Cooler: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-cpu-cooler-cwch100

Should i spend the extra money to liquid cool my CPU? or just stick with the Hyper 212 Plus?

ALSO! VERY IMPORTANT!

Im using the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Case, will the Hyper 212 Plus fit in it, due to its bulky size

AND if i go with the H100, will the radiator fit on the top or somewhere on the bottom

BASICALLY will i have room for any of the two CPU Coolers in the Cooler Master Storm Enforer?

Thanks in advanced!

For the H100 you would probably take the 120mm fan off the back and attach it there, since theres really no where else to put it without modding the case.


The corsair H100 is about as effective as high end air cooling, so make the decision for yourself

Go for the 212 EVO. It's only $5 more, but I believe it's significantly better. The H100 isn't worth the money.
What's your CPU?

I recommend the Hyper 212 Plus or the Noctua NHD14. The 212+ is a great budget cooler. The Noctua is a high end cooler.

The Storm Enforcer is a very large case and should fit both.
