    I liked the results I got with my H80. They really improved the efficiency of theses AIO coolers this round.

    Yeah im very happy with the H100, it fits nicely up top in the Cosmos S case... its not too loud though im sure some aftermarket fans will drop it even further... I just used the stock paste that was on the H100 heatsink... diddnt change it for MX-2 but the temps are so good im gonna leave it :)

    What temps are you getting?;) Im deciding on the H100 or the Noctua D14:D assuming the H100 will cool better but was just curious on how much lower it would be compared to the D14:toast:

    ill do some proper testing tomorrow as today was 30c in Kent and my computer room was boiling! Tomorrow should be cooler and I will have time to mess around with stock & OC temps.

    EDIT:

    nothing fancy but I just did a 4.5ghz overclock and a short run of prime95... im sure if i tweaked the volts a bit I could bring that figure down... also perhaps using some aftermarket thermal paste and different fans in push pull etc.. right now the H100 is stock and my overclock was just to set the multi to 45 in bios. (ambient temp in my computer room at test time: 23c)

    I was stuck between the H100 and D14 coolers myself but having never had a rad in my Cosmos S case before and it has the space uptop I swayed in that direction... The main reason i chose it is because im using tall ram sitcks in all the slots and that wouldve caused an issue with the D14 and height clearance, but Im guessing the D14 would be quieter due to its noctua fans. Its kind of a toss up between the 2 really, the H100 looks awesome and leaves the motherboard area free and airy expelling all the warm air out the case but its stock corsair fans are a bit loud at full pelt... the D14 has massive cooling and is quiet but leaves the motherboard area covered up if you want to change ram sticks and also pushes warm air around inside the case instead of expelling it.

    I've started it but it's something I'm going to need more prep with, the weight of these Xigmatek S1283's don't make it easy to get the job done.

    Don't lap an HDT cooler much, or you can rip right through the heatpipes.

    Thanx bro, I appreciate the results, looks like the H100 cools pretty damn well:rockout: but either way, D14 or H100 you can't go wrong with either:D guess it comes up too personal taste or like you said, space as the D14 is one big mofo:laugh::toast:

    Also worth noting is that nothing can really go wrong with the D14... whereas the H100 can have all sorts go wrong with it... leaks, pump failure etc... so if youre after something that will last you, then D14 ;)
