    i am thinking about changing my Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 with two NF-P12 fans out with a Corsair H60 i can get it this weekend only for around 50USD / 39euros which is 40% off normal price, but is it better at cooling my i5-2500K at 4ghz than my Noctua?

    it was my idea to get some more space around there, and with a 120 and 140mm fan in top blowing fresh air down to the board it wouldn't be a problem but if i don't get a little temp difference i won't bother ^^

    If you went to the Thermaltake Water2.0 Performer, you will need $15 more ($65 shipped at mwave.com), but you will lower the temperatures too. Granted it isn't the thick version, but it will outperform both of those cooler choices and still give you the look you were going for.

    not buying from the us, need to pay taxes when it's over around 13,50USD so will be too expensive.

    komplett.dk even got Corsair's H100 for 94USD / 73euros.

    Shit! sorry just noticed the location:(

    Issue is all of those older AIOs were bested by top notch air coolers. So I guess I am with erocker to just keep what you have.

    Save for a 240mm AIO, not worth moving to a 120mm AIO from what you have.
