    I would do a XSPC Rasa 120 Kit and be done with it. its technically a custom loop just all in one package that you put together. a friend has it on a X3430 and it cools great!

    I just tested the H100 and its within a couple degrees of the Swifty H20 320 kit. Of course there is much less noise with the swifty kit than the H100 needs to get that sort of result.

    I've personally used the XSPC Rasa RS240 on my Sandy Bridge build and had nice results with it. I had the 240mm radiator coupled with 4 really high CFM fans...i believe they were about 150CFM.

    its a better pump but not by much ...
    rasa 120 can cool 2600k with top end gpu in sli ..

    i changed pump from xspc to lang D5 vario .. and at dial speed of 4 .. temp stayed the same..


    full kits 240 360 or ticker rad ... in the ends doesn't really change temperature by much


    buy kit that fit in PC now and add rad later if needed..

    XSPC kits are ez to install

    EDIT: im using 240 rad with a 200mm fan and temp stablilize at 52 GPU and 70 for 2600k@4400mhz F@h 24/24
