If it was me I would. The Ven-X is good but I'm willing to bet the h100 is alot better.

Then you'll be able to use tall ram! I like to try new things out.

As far as I'm concerned, anything is an upgrade from a monstrous piece of junk metal hanging off my motherboard by a few small screws.
Edit: even if the temps stay about the same

It's better than a leaky, corroded, condensation machine, turning my case into a sewer.

I think:-
Thermal: a small to medium (not significant) improvement
Acoustic: a rather noticeable acoustic benefit
CPU speed: should be a better helper to push toward 5GHz

Relevant, check out the review in my sig. I upgraded from a Ven-X.
With an H100 you will be able to crank your 2500 to 5ghz for sure with nice temps.
If you have the money go for it.
