Will the H100 cool better than Noctua NH-D14?

    I currently own the Noctua NH-D14 with a 4.5ghz OC and my idle temps are around 40-45 celsius depending on the core.

    Was wondering if the H100 would do better.

    Considering its going to cost over $100 to get maybe a degree or two, unless you just gotta have one, I say don't bother.

    If you have the room, adding a third fan to that cooler will also give you a degree or two drop from what you have now, and that would be like a $20-25 investment (to match the fans on the cooler now) ;)
