The H100 with 4 Gentle Typhoons beat the D14 with the stock 140mm and an AP15 by 5C. If you added a 3rd fan to the D14(to even things out a little) it would have probably dropped the temps with the D14 another 2C. So for about $70 more(2 AP-15s @ $15 each and the difference between D14 and H100 @ $40) you would drop 3C, doesn't seem like a good deal to me.

It does when you value real estate in your case.

This is much more convenient than setting up a water loop. I'll drop $180 for some piece of mind and a decent enough drop over a gargantuan air cooler.

Sometime down the road when I feel comfortable with water cooling I will set up my own loop. But considering these fans were all part of my case to begin with it's not as if the fans were bought specifically for that purpose.

How do you have this thing mounted?

Noise is a factor. 2600 rpm fans vs. low speed 1300 rpm fans.

It is the same reason why people choose XSPC RX rads over getting the Black Ice GTX rads. RX rads can use quieter fans and perform well. If you like the loud noise, go ahead and get the H100.
