I want to know which cooler is better straight up, no pricing involved, just what they literally do. It is between the Corsair H100i and the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.
If you can, please tell me which is better, why, and by how much. As a rough estimate I'll probably be overclocking an i5-4670k in the "keyword" future to about 4.5 MAX., nothing too crazy. I'll also be doing some major gaming throughout all time.

Budget = EVO

Water = h100i

Big Air = Phanteks PH-TC14PE

Thank you for you suggestions!

Just check dimensions of case and cooling solution , before buying.

Your comparing the low end of cooling to the high end, of course the significantly more expensive H100i will perform better.

Oh it should definately be enough. The case I got is the Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced

^This. Although the difference between the PH-TC14PE is almost all aesthetic and at most 1-2C in favor of the Phanteks and it all comes down to colors in the long run :3. The H100i is very similar to the NH-D14/PH-TC14PE in cooling, albeit louder.

PS:Not to steer of topic, but where do you get those GIFs?

It's just that I've seen posts where the replies have said that an air cooler may be better and I was unsure. So I decided to ask the forum myself and see the replies I get.

The NH/PH-14 and H100i should have absolutely no problem fitting in the 932.

An equivalent aircooler like the Phanteks mentioned or the Noctua NH-D14 might be a better choice than a H100i, but the EVO is a budget heatsink, admittedly a very good one.

That being said, if you want to overclock, make sure you have a good motherboard such as a Asrock Z87 Extreme4 or above. Mind posting the proposed specs of your system?

I see, nontheless, it should be a good system. The ASUS Z87-A is also a pretty good board it seems.

Nice, what is the case by the way? The MSi and ASUS GTX 760 lineups are suprisingly good from benchmarks, I would assume they would just rebadge a 660ti and overclock it a bit but it is more or less a slightly disabled 670.

It's decent for Air , might try custom water next time.

Ah, custom water cooling, got my Q6600 up in the 4.Xs with a combination available at the time before it became much more popular for ordinary custom-builders.
