Hello Everyone!

I am interested in either the corsair h55 or kuhler 620. Which one would perform better as well as being quiet?

I have an i7 3820 STOCK CLOCKED.

Please don't suggest an air cooler :non:  , just one of these two, or another closed loop solution, thanks!! :p

the khuler will get better performance. through quiet, i cant recommend either. Both have pretty terrible stock fans.

Could you reccomend any good fans for either radiators?

depends on price you are willing to pay for. A generic example would be Scythe Gentle Typhoons, Gelids or Noctua f12, but they are costly. Slightly cheaper alternatives would be Swiftech Helix-120 PWM, Cougar Vortexs just as purely generic examples.

I own an Antec Kuhler 620 which I picked due to clearance issues with heatsinks, and swapped out the stock fan for two low rpm fans I had lying around. The results are not impressive, it's not dramatically better than the stock cooler at idle but the delta is quite a bit better; not to mention the fact it is nearly silent. It's not really a performance solution but it serves its purpose well.
