You gotta add on the price of the fans to the $120.
NH-D14 already comes with great quiet fans for $69. The 2 fans alone are worth $55.
I just saw your sig rig, and I understand why you keep defending the H100 & H80.
Not everyone wants / likes loud fans.
Yeah, usually when you see an unreasonable defense of a product it is because said product is in the defender sig, lol.
H100 is a very good performance cooler. The problem is that it is not very good in terms of price per performance and noise per performance compared to the D14. To correct the latter issue you have to buy 4 nice fans and run P/P. However now you have spent more than real water cooling for 10C-15C less performance (and 2.5x the cost of the D14 for only 5C-7C more performance).
IMO, this cooler is for people that really hate the look of big tower coolers or are really scared of leaks with a proper water cooling setup.

It worked out OK for you, but we are talking about the general case not your case in particular.Edited by JCPUser - 8/16/11 at 5:21pm
